2014 has turned out to be a strong year so far, with my 151 Advisors’ consulting practice growing steadily and my personal life transformed by a midsummer move to Colorado. While prompted by business opportunities for my significant other, I’ve found a booming, savvy and welcoming mobile and high-tech community here on the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies — businesses in mobile, Cloud, telecom, ad:tech, social and the Internet of Things are all here — and all growing fast!
I’ve also done some very interesting research this year into M2M/IoT platforms and networks, how mobile data is enabling multi-channel digital advertising, and even how M2M underpins regulation of the cannabis trade here in Colorado. This work has given me some sharp insights into some of the major trends coming at us in 2015, including:
- Not Your Father’s Platform: Transforming the Internet of Things into the Internet of Services
- It’s Back to the Future (again) When it Comes to M2M/IoT Platforms
- The Mobile-Mad Men Connection Deepens as Mobile Enables Multi-Channel Advertising
I’ll also be talking with Peggy Smedley, Publisher of Connected World Magazine, on December 2 at 1115 am Central time about M2M/IoT platforms. Click here to listen live or to a replay.
