IoT Checklist| Industrial, Consumer, & Manufacturing CTOs, CIOs, Engg VPs!

To Be Said Upfront - This checklist focuses on the probable pitfalls that would affect manufacturing facilities and non-IT companies' path to IoT adoption!  Haste != Quick Ergo Stay Calm Yes, IoT is already driving positive and tangible business results; case in point - the industrial internet of things ( Industrial 4.0 ). But this does not mean you get hasty! On the contrary this is when you do NOT get hasty. Solution - Breaking down and resolving your existing business model to correspond to a skeletal digital model. Validate this with an established IoT practitioner. Going Piecemeal? Please Do Not! IoT is now an indispensable part of our daily lives, irrespective of the industry or the verticals it serves. There is a lot of technological debt involved in an unsystematic implementation/trial/adoption as Dilbert tries to explain here, Courtesy Scott Adams,  And as with any new technology its adoption will be step-by-step, phase-by-phase, budget

No Roads for Electric Vehicles in India?

India's migration to Electric Vehicles by 2030.... Plausible? A list of reasons why India's migration to 'Only-EV' sales by 2030 is a herculean ask, task, cask! Forget On-Road Price, Charging Points/Electric Grid Sophistication, or Better Graded Fuel. There is a bigger and more basic concern for Electric Vehicles to storm the roads. And that reason precisely could be that there would be no roads for electric vehicles. Image Sourced from this Business World article on NITI Aayog's EV dream! vision! The Tesla Tax A few weeks back Norway did this . With the minority government there mulling (albeit forcefully) over the scope and extent of benefits given to EVs (read Tesla). Hefty benefits that included subsidies in taxes, vehicle parking fees, and road tolls. And now have taken a U Turn , which was expected given the vociferous protests from environmental groups. And seemingly for good and sound reason given that: - EVs cut carbon footprint substa
