Discovering the Internet of Things (IoT) : technology and business process management, inside and outside the innovative firms by Majed Al-Mashari and Manlio Del GiudiceThe Internet of Things (IoT) is a disruptive technology increasingly influencing the daily life, the business world and even the global economy. In a nutshell, the IoT can be considered a family of technologies whose purpose is to make any type of object, even without a digital "nature", a device connected to the Internet, likely to take advantage of all the features owned by the objects born to use the network, like the functionality for monitoring and control. Beyond the attention the IoT applications are receiving for consumers and end users (such as the monitoring of personal health, fitness devices or automation), it is reasonable to expect that most of the value materializes in B2B, especially in the manufacture, distribution, infrastructure management and resources. Finally it results in new consumer products and services available to citizens, but the justification of investment in IoT are found mainly in the industrial environment.This e-book took inspiration from the observation of this scenario. Its primary research goal has been to investigate both the impact and the role of the IoT on the business process management in terms of promotion of knowledge flow, innovation and competitiveness. Furthermore, the papers selected for this volume aimed at understanding how the IoT fosters innovation within organizations and which implication this phenomenon can have on the competitiveness of the firms and on its business process management.

IoT Security Issues by Alasdair GilchristIoT Security Issues looks at the burgeoning growth of devices of all kinds controlled over the Internet of all varieties, where product comes first and security second. In this case, security trails badly. This book examines the issues surrounding these problems, vulnerabilities, what can be done to solve the problem, investigating the stack for the roots of the problems and how programming and attention to good security practice can combat the problems today that are a result of lax security processes on the Internet of Things. This book is for people interested in understanding the vulnerabilities on the Internet of Things, such as programmers who have not yet been focusing on the IoT, security professionals and a wide array of interested hackers and makers. This book assumes little experience or knowledge of the Internet of Things. To fully appreciate the book, limited programming background would be helpful for some of the chapters later in the book, though the basic content is explained. The author, Alasdair Gilchrist, has spent 25 years as a company director in the fields of IT, Data Communications, Mobile Telecoms and latterly Cloud/SDN/NFV technologies, as a professional technician, support manager, network and security architect. He has project-managed both agile SDLC software development as well as technical network architecture design. He has experience in the deployment and integration of systems in enterprise, cloud, fixed/mobile telecoms, and service provider networks. He is therefore knowledgeable in a wide range of technologies and has written a number of books in related fields.

The Technical Foundations of Iot by Boris Adryan; Dominik Obermaier; Paul Fremantle (Screenplay by)This comprehensive new resource presents a technical introduction to the components, architecture, software, and protocols of IoT. This book is especially catered to those who are interested in researching, developing, and building IoT. The book covers the physics of electricity and electromagnetism laying the foundation for understanding the components of modern electronics and computing. Readers learn about the fundamental properties of matter along with security and privacy issues related to IoT.From the launch of the internet from ARPAnet in the 1960s to recent connected gadgets, this book highlights the integration of IoT in various verticals such as industry, smart cities, connected vehicles, and smart and assisted living. The overall design patterns, issues with UX and UI, and different network topologies related to architectures of M2M and IoT solutions are explored. Product development, power options for IoT devices, including battery chemistry, actuators from simple buzzers to complex stepper motors, and sensors from gyroscopes to the electrical sensing of organic compounds are covered. Hardware development, sensors, and embedded systems are discussed in detail. This book offers insight into the software components that impinge on IoT solutions, development, network protocols, backend software, data analytics and conceptual interoperability.

Think Like a Programmer by V. Anton SpraulRewire your brain! Examples in this book are written in C++, but will improve your ability to think like a programmer in any language. The real challenge of programming isn't learning a language's syntax—it's learning to creatively solve problems so you can build something great. In this one-of-a-kind text, author V. Anton Spraul breaks down the ways that programmers solve problems and teaches you what other introductory books often ignore: how to Think Like a Programmer. Each chapter tackles a single programming concept, like classes, pointers, and recursion, and open-ended exercises throughout challenge you to apply your knowledge. You'll also learn how to: Split problems into discrete components to make them easier to solve Make the most of code reuse with functions, classes, and libraries Pick the perfect data structure for a particular job Master more advanced programming tools like recursion and dynamic memory Organize your thoughts and develop strategies to tackle particular types of problems Although the book's examples are written in C++, the creative problem-solving concepts they illustrate go beyond any particular language; in fact, they often reach outside the realm of computer science. As the most skillful programmers know, writing great code is a creative art—and the first step in creating your masterpiece is learning to Think Like a Programmer.
