Sudhir Pai, TCC: On the parallels between energy, space and medicine for digital transformation

The Internet of Things (IoT), as many in the industry say, is not a tool for business transformation on its own. It has to be combined with additional technologies, as well as the right tools for data analysis, and put in the right cultural context.

How big data and IoT initiatives render the ‘garbage in, garbage out’ theory invalid

Garbage in, garbage out: it’s one of the great truisms of technology. Sure, it’s been eclipsed by “software will eat the world,” as something to say in a meeting when you really don’t know what’s going on, but it’s still probably uttered a few thousand times a month to explain away the failure of a recent technology initiative.
