IoD, IoT, IoE, IoS, IoP, IoU and IoX Are in Your Future

Have you figured out the new buzzword trend for 2014 that starting ramping up in 2013?

Have you figured out the new buzzword trend for 2014 that starting ramping up in 2013?

Yup, it's Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Devicess (IoD)

Assuming that IoT, IoD and other variations catch on which looks like they will, this could bring relief and rest for the over-worked Big Data and Software Defined "X" buzzword bingo bandwagon usage.

Introducing IoX?
For those not familiar with Software Defined "X", simply replace "X" with your favorite term such as Data Center (SDDC), Networking (SDN), Storage (SDS), Marketing, (SDM) among others.as the new IT (and beyond) industry term might just take some pressure from the over-worked software defined "x" usage (you pick "x" such as data center, networking, storage, marketing, etc).

This is good news as we now have IoX where "X" can be leveraged from Things (IoT) and Devices (IoD) to People, Places, Protocols or Platforms (IoP), not to mention APIs, Applications and Apple (IoA).

How about Internet of Items (IoI) or Internet of Objects (IoO)?

We are already seeing Cisco with Internet of Everything (IoE) from CES and rest assured the Big Data folks will want to get all over IoBD while storage folks serve up Internet of Storage (IoS), granted that might be a little close to Apple's OS for comfort of some.

Of course this should also prompt the question of if instead of Internet of Things (IoT) or IoX as being public, then would a Intranet of Things or other items (e.g. IoX) be considered private?

And if you just said or thought, what hybrid, sure, why not, its 2014 after all...

Here's my point
There are many other variations particular if you apply some cloud and virtual based Big Data analytics with some software defined marketing creativity.

So what's your take on IoT, IoD, IoP and other IoX, is it all IoH (Internet of Hype) and Internet of Marketing (IoM), something new to get excited about for those who suffer from technology buzzword ADD?

What say you?

Ok, nuff said

Software is eating the world. Companies that were not previously in the technology space now find themselves competing with Google and Amazon on speed of innovation. As the innovation cycle accelerates, companies must embrace rapid and constant change to both applications and their infrastructure, and find a way to deliver speed and agility of development without sacrificing reliability or efficiency of operations. In her keynote DevOps Summit, Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell, will discuss ho...
For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business. The landline has been a lifeline to customers and colleagues as the primary means of communication – even as email threatened to render the telephone obsolete. For some purposes, like conference calling, there was simply no substitute. That is, until a few years ago. With all due respect and apologies to Mr. Alexander Graham Bell, the desk phone is becoming just one solution, out of many devices, used for the modern...
Come learn about what you need to consider when moving your data to the cloud. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Skyla Loomis, a Program Director of Cloudant Development at Cloudant, will discuss the security, performance, and operational implications of keeping your data on premise, moving it to the cloud, or taking a hybrid approach. She will use real customer examples to illustrate the tradeoffs, key decision points, and how to be successful with a cloud or hybrid cloud solution.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, B...

Cisco on Wedesday announced its intent to acquire privately held Metacloud. Based in Pasadena, Calif., Metacloud deploys and operates private clouds for global organizations with a unique OpenStack-as-a-Service model that delivers and remotely operates production-ready private clouds in a customer's data center. Metacloud's OpenStack-based cloud platform will accelerate Cisco's strategy to build the world's largest global Intercloud, a network of clouds, together with key partners to address cu...
I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows. If Amazon knows your preferences for particular books and films based upon captured data, then they can apply analytics to predict related books and films that you may like. This improves sales. T...
