Re: Beyond creativity
@shamika, agree but not only to rethink everything... we need to step out of Paradigm in the new interconnected reality - how I see it....

Re: Internet Of Things
@zerox203, I see your point and could not agree more... but with the technology you never know how market would react to it...

Remains to be seen
I'm not convinced IoT is anything but a blown *way* out of proportion to reality version of the Y2k bug.  But at least it's keeping software coding jobs in demand.

Re: Internet Of Things
The general notion that lots of companies are going to be impacted by IoT more than they realize is definitely one I can get behind. If you leave it out of your plans, and your competitor beats you to market with something that really shakes your corner of the market, you'll be kicking yourself - so I definitely agree that everyone ought to take a second look at it. That said, the rest of these points are kind of contingent on some ifs and whens, aren't they? There is definitely some crossover with agile development/DevOps/etc. and IoT, but all that may already be going on at a lot of places. It's never a bad time to write better code and do better testing, but then again it may or may not be your company writing the software.

The standards I think are a focal point here. While we once again come back to the 'if you snooze, you lose' problem, which you're right about, I don't think we're giving due credit to these standards here. It's not just that they'll drive down development, and increase interoperability - it's that they'll drive consumer adoption and satisfaction. While there are many great B2B markets to consider as you mention, the consumer realm is not to be ignored. The consumers will go with the de facto standard, and if you've already gone to market with the wrong one, you may regret it - think blu-ray vs.HD-DVD (I support OIC, for the record). Customers that have already bought your product that might not talk with anyone else's will not be pleased. As the saying goes, you have to break some eggs to make an omelette, though, so I do appreciate your attitude here. Someone has to move first.

Re: Beyond creativity
I like the fact which says "Rethink software development". I think the "Agile" concept will go hand in hand with this concept.

Re: Beyond creativity
I second that.  It makes perfect sense that "This will involve building new relationships among product managers, machine-to-machine communications specialists, and data analysts" because the minute you look at connectivity as the base product functionality, you need to ensure that all parties are involved to ensure not just the right baseline controls such as security and data management are properly scoped, but it also tends to help product managers better understand the overlying ecosystem that comes with the IoT and what the implications a connected product will have.

Beyond creativity
I like that Peter spotlights the skill of navigating an idea through your company's culture and structures. Exactly never is a creative idea so singularly brilliant that it sails through to production; it takes people who know how to push it through and swat past opposition.
