Types of Internet business models

M2M scorecard for Communication Service ProvidersConnectivity is necessary, but not sufficient for the Internet of Things (IoT). As I discussed in an earlier blog posting, connectivity is one of the elements of an IoT solution: it’s the part that provides LAN and/or WAN communications between the hardware layer (equipment) and the application layer. See Figure 1.

Connectivity makes IoT possible as do IP-ready devices, professional services, data analytics and applications. But not all connectivity is equal. Today there are plenty of connectivity options for enterprises wishing to launch an IoT solution. Moreover, suppliers of connectivity – including mobile connectivity – are implementing many changes in their businesses to support current and future IoT opportunities. Analysys Mason just completed a careful analysis of seven mobile network operators’ M2M businesses. See Figure 2. These connectivity suppliers are focusing on their IoT strategies and prioritizing opportunities; crafting new partnerships that supply technology and channels-to-market; determining where best to participate in the IoT supply chain; refining their organizational structures and the placement of people in their organizations to support opportunities; and redefining their enterprise personas or brands to match the future IoT world.

But what are the consequences of those changes? Let’s address some of the questions I frequently get about IoT changing the M2M world.

Question: How will business models change? We will start to see new, innovative business models. We will see product-centric enterprises start selling services. We will see IoT suppliers engaging in wholesale, rather than retail businesses. We will see models where enterprises will sell IoT solutions to other enterprises that will in turn sell those IoT solutions to consumers. We will also see the coupling of multiple IoT solutions to provide integrated solutions that rely on mash-ups of data. Enterprises will jointly market, sell and support these new IoT solutions.

How about becoming a Day Trader? Good Business

by DrZombie

All you need is capital---$100,000--which I dont have. In fact, I'm flat broke. But in 1999-2000, I made a ton of money, almost 300% in a year. I perfected my GAP TRADING METHOD with little risk. After a decade of being downsized and outsourced, I lost my computer career. I made very little on my ebay book business, not enough to brag about it. Teaching college courses is not very profitable, either. So, I've been bumbling all along with all these great skills in my head--financial skills on making money. But one needs capital.With $100,000 you can swing trade seven times or more in a month and make $7,000-10,000 for that month

in IT security, when even a 10 year-old knows a better way to find a proxy than to google this, like you did, and a real IT security pro has proxies at the ready anyway?
