Kevin Benedict's What's New in HTML5 - Week of September 30, 2012


Some of the biggest news around HTML5 this week actually came from a hardware manufacturer.  Intermec, the makers of ruggedized and industrial grade mobile barcode scanners, RFID readers and smartphones has released a browser for Windows Mobile devices that supports HTML5.  That is very interesting for the millions of companies running Intermec/PSION ruggedized devices.  Theoretically it will greatly extend the kinds of mobile apps that owners of ruggedized devices running old OSs can utilize.

On a related note, Intermec finalized its acquisition of PSION this week as well, so I would anticipate that PSION devices would also have this HTML5 browser capability soon, if not now.

Now for the news...

Intermec has announced a new HTML5-capable browser “allowing for the development of OS agnostic web applications that can run on iOS, Android and select Intermec rugged mobile computers”.  For details on the browser from Intermec, go to http://www.intermec.com/products/html5/index.aspx.  Read Original Content

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
