IoT in Banking: Examples of IoT technology used in financial services

Banking is becoming more convenient thanks to the Internet and our many connected devices, and the future of the banking industry is growing increasingly digital. Whether discussing the future of retail banking or the future of mobile banking, technology is playing a larger role in our everyday transactions. The Internet of Things (IoT) is part of this rapid evolution toward the bank of the future, and both consumers and financial institutions need to adapt to these retail and mobile banking trends.

IoT Trends To Watch In 2022

The Internet of Things (IoT) market is evolving at a rapid pace and while some of the early predictions for tens of billions of connected devices by 2022 have proved to be wide of the mark, the use cases are so varied that explosive adoption is likely. However, the encroachment of IoT into all aspects of our personal and business lives brings with it plenty of concerns, from security and data ownership, to business models that acknowledge and enable the global nature of connected devices.

IoT's Importance is Growing Rapidly, But Its Security Is Still Weak

The weakest link in most digital networks is the person sitting in front of the screen – the defining feature of the Internet of People (IoP). Because that’s where, through cunning and manipulative tactics, unsuspecting recipients can be tricked into opening toxic links. Little do they know, however, they’ve unwittingly opened the gates to digital catastrophe. Of course, I have nothing against people. In fact, some of my best friends are people!

The future is not the Internet of Things... it is the Connected Intelligent Edge

The ‘Internet of Things’ was first coined to help people understand the concept of digital appliances that could communicate with an app or central hub. If you’ve been to CES at any point in the last decade, you could see many examples on the show floor, such as connected weight scales or a connected fridge. But these early examples of ‘connected’ tech felt more gimmicky than useful, and were largely contained to the consumer electronics industry.

How Grafana powers the dynamic visualizations of IoT data for AWS IoT TwinMaker

At re:Invent this year, AWS announced its new digital twin service, AWS IoT TwinMaker (in preview), which allows users to create digital twins of real-world systems like buildings, factories, industrial equipment, and production lines. Using a digital twin to monitor and improve operations for a physical system requires ingesting data from IoT sensors, process instruments, cameras, and enterprise systems, and curating and associating data from these disparate sources.

MQTT Topic and Payload Parsing with Telegraf

Buckle up, this one isn’t short…but I’m hoping it will be thoroughly informative! This post is about Telegraf as a consumer of MQTT messages in the context of writing them to InfluxDB. If you are interested in and unfamiliar with Telegraf, you can view docs here. Unsure if Telegraf aligns with your needs? I make a case for it in the Optimizing Writes section of this blog post. It may also help to have an understanding of Line Protocol, InfluxDB’s default accepted format.

Canonical teams with Xilinx to accelerate the development of adaptive SoCs

December 14, 2021: Canonical and Xilinx Inc. announced today the publication of Ubuntu images optimised for Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ evaluation boards and the production-ready Kria System-on-Modules (SOM). The companies are collaborating to bring enterprise-grade Linux to the world of adaptive SoCs to accelerate the development of new software-defined devices across all IoT verticals.

The 5 Biggest Internet Of Things (IoT) Trends In 2022

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term that describes the increasingly sophisticated ecosystems of online, connected devices we share our world with. The slightly odd name refers to the fact that the first iteration of the internet was simply a network of connected computers. As the internet grew, phones, office equipment like printers and scanners, and industrial machinery were added to the internet.

Internet of Things and Ubuntu: 2021 highlights

With rising unit shipments and hardware spending, 2021 will go into the record books as a critical year in the ever-increasing adoption of connected devices. Ubuntu – the modern, open-source Linux operating system for the enterprise server, desktop, and cloud – is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for Internet of Things ( IoT) devices.
