Cisco’s Internet of Everything Videos

Carrying the Sensor Tech and IoT theme forward, here are a couple of selected videos from Cisco (which has obviously bet big on what it calls the Internet of Everything – after all, there are still a lot of connections to be made!).

 

 

 

 

Manufacturing and IoT

Carrying forward from our discussions in #hkuiom regarding Sensor Tech, the Internet of Things and Big Data in the context of manufacturing, below is a video caselet. Stanley Black & Decker has scratched the tip of the iceberg that we have envisioned in our discussions.

 

 

Here is an infographic released by IDC last year, that showcases the (lack of) awareness of Big Data among manufacturers in Asia.

Is Cisco’s ‘Future Video’ on track?

In January 2012, Cisco released this ‘future’ video. Nearly two years hence, how much of this has come true? Are the linear trends projected in this video still valid or can we see some unimagined disruptions starting to unravel the way future was supposed to be?

Nymi: Identity through heartbeats [Video]

As discussed in #hkuiom over the past years, Identity Management is a major unsolved problem that limits the ability for seamless computing and digitized service delivery. A problem that can provide much profits to the company that solves it. Nymi, which ships this fall, proposes to use an individual’s unique heartbeat, combined with a registered smartphone, as a basis for authentication.

 

Radical Innovation Strategies [Video]

During our discussions on the value of IT in #hkuiom, I often draw upon examples from my research regarding the role of IT in enabling radical innovation strategies. While the focus of the discussions is not innovation, I use the below mini-lecture video by David Kryscynski, my senior colleague from the Emory Doctoral Program, to provide students a brief overview this topic.

 

The Resource Based View [Video + Slides]

The Business Value of IT is a dominant focus of my research and teaching, and this topic draws heavily from the Resource Based View (RBV). During our discussions on the value of IT in #hkuiom, we often talk about IT resources and capabilities. While the RBV is covered in detail during the Strategic Management courses at the MBA level, it helps to provide the students a brief overview of it as part of the IT resources and capabilities discussion.

I’ve found the below mini-lecture video by David Kryscynski, my senior colleague from the Emory Doctoral Program, to be very helpful in this endeavor.

 

 

In the past, I’ve used these slides (The Resource Based View) to communicate the difference between the ‘5 Forces’ view (something that most audiences are well versed with) and the RBV, along with a brief on how competencies fit into the picture.
