How Edge Computing will Give a New Life to Health Care

With the advent of Edge Computing, health care industry has transformed itself considerably, while hospitals and clinics are gearing up to take better and faster care of their patients.

In fact, Edge Computing has permeated the industry in such a powerful manner that clinicians and doctors heavily rely on them to treat patients.

As more and more devices get connected in the health care industry, networking among them all has really become huge because the data that keeps comes in is never going to slow down.

What is Edge Computing?

Edge Computing or Fog Computing is a technology by which the time between data capture and analytics are considerably reduced. It works by upending the system in such a manner that the devices themselves are configured to handle critical analysis on their own, and only the filtered ones will enter the user’s device.

Through this technology, patient management, remote monitoring, in-patient care, health information management all receive a burst of speed. As it adds a secure layer of computing power between the cloud and the device, there is no need to worry about information going into the wrong hands.

Health information management can come in various forms like wearables, home scales, Telehealth tools, healthcare apps, blood glucose monitor, heart rate monitor and plenty more, so while devices get smaller and data gets ...

7 Tips for Selecting the Best IoT Platform for Your Business

7 Tips for Selecting the Best IoT Platform for Your Business

It is now an established fact that maintaining an Internet of Things platform of your choice is crucial to the way business processes are carried out. And, the rapid adoption of IoT in all fields of industry has made it an asset to any company.

However, in spite of the rapid growth of IoT, the sad fact is that 90% of the data still remains unused, making it evident that we are not leveraging the full potential of IoT. Often failure to use the correct IoT platform is the commonest reason for this. When IBM conducted research into this, they came up with solutions.

One feasible solution was to release cognitive IoT solutions where the computer will not be programmed, but will learn through intelligent means of experience, human interaction and data. Through cognitive IoT, vast amounts of data can be used.

So, let’s take a look at some of best tips that will help you choose the right IoT platform for your business.

1. The Unique Offerings of Each Vendor

IoT has revolutionized many industrial sectors to a great extent; hence, there are so many IoT platforms out there that it becomes a tough task to  choose the best. After initial research, you will probably have to focus ...

10 Tips to Troubleshoot Security Concerns in IoT Wearables

10 Tips to Troubleshoot Security Concerns in IoT Wearables

From smartwatches to glasses and finger rings - the range of wearable devices are steadily expanding. Combined with the might of Internet of Things, wearable devices have a life transforming effect. While it is fancy and often productive to carry these wearables around, the billion dollar question is, “How safe are these wearables?�

What if your favourite wearable is just another door that hackers and cybercriminals can break into to make away with the control of your personal and professional life?

Security concerns in wearables are legitimate. A study by Auth0 has confirmed that more than 52% of wearable device users feel that they are provided with inadequate security measures.

VTech, a popular brand that sells wearable for kids suffered a security breach which resulted in the leakage of private information of more than 200,000 children and their parents.

There is no better time to sit back and analyze the security concerns and the ways to negate them, right now, in the present.

Security Concerns in IoT Wearables

Wearables are now being used for purposes that go far beyond calorie counting and fitness tracking. They are now even part of BYOD enterprise work philosophy and are used by remote employees to constantly collaborate and communicate with their peers. Though considered futuristic, the IoT ...

7 Reasons Why Serverless Computing will Create a Revolution in Cloud Technology

7 Reasons Why Serverless Computing will Create a Revolution in Cloud Technology

Of late, you may have heard this term - Serverless Computing. It is a term that has been around in the developer’s world for more than a year, and it has already caused a paradigm shift in the field of cloud technology.

In this article, we will examine the reasons that caused serverless computing to be such a major trend.

Serverless Computing is a computing code execution model where the developers are relieved of several time-consuming activities so that they can focus on other important tasks.

This trend is also known as Function as a Service (FaaS) where the cloud vendor is responsible for starting and stopping a function’s container platform, check infrastructure security, reduce maintenance efforts, improve scalability, so on and so forth at low operational costs.

The aim is to develop microservice oriented solutions to help decompose complex applications into small, easily manageable and exchangeable modules.

This brings us to the question - are there really ‘serverless’ computing services?

Of course, it is only logical that there should be servers in the background, but developers need not bother about the operation or provisioning of these servers; the entire server management is done by the cloud provider. Thus, the developer can devote more of his time ...
