Top 6 Reasons why IoT is the Biggest Innovation for the App

first_imgTop 6 Reasons why IoT is the Biggest Innovation for the App Industry If you would like to have your company featured in the Irish Tech News Business Showcase, get in contact with us at Simon@IrishTechNews.ie or on Twitter: @SimonCocking Image source: www.customerthink.comWhile there are a lot of classical definitions of Internet of Things (IoT), cohesively it’s an umbrella term describing the device ecosystem related to each other. They share data in a rather efficient manner and help users to simplify their tasks.IoT is getting popular thanks to its adaption right from using it in daily objects like speakers to even building IoT powered smart cities. This goes to show how immense the potential of IoT is and creating more applications will only make the world a more efficient place. It all starts with a device which is dependent on IoT app. And with app industry booming, courtesy smartphones, getting the IoT app development company to use innovation for device-to-app communication makes up for a successful business plan.Here are the top six reasons why IoT is shaping up to be the biggest innovation for the app industry.Promoting Open Source DevelopmentIoT technology makes way for app developers and app development companies to openly share their programs. This helps other budding app developers to experiment and build their own IoT applications. With a plethora of opportunities ahead, the growth of mobile apps is inevitable.And IoT opens one more door for smart app developers to grab this opportunity and enter into the market before it gets highly competitive. Being open source, it brings in more transparency, making it easier for companies and individual developers to collaborate for creating better apps.Innovation through WearablesBest way to splice in the technology is by entering in the consumer goods market. Wearables are part and parcel of daily lives. Be it a smartwatch, eyeglasses and speakers/earphones, etc. The idea is to have a possible bridge for data to exchange between two devices. This way, customers can get access to real-time data and also engage in simulating the activities using the IoT device.The basketball app, ShotTracker comes with a sensor-attached wristband connected to the user’s mobile device. The sensor then records the data regarding shots that a player takes and the same is simulated in a mobile app. This way, a user can track his/her performance.Enabling Hybrid App DevelopmentIoT devices need to overcome the limitations set by the conventional native mobile apps. This is why IoT apps need to be platform-agnostic and this will have an influx of hybrid app development. A hybrid app having an enhanced UX for IoT devices to perform better is the need of an hour. The app industry can expect to incorporate the latest coding capabilities required on hybrid platforms, enabling users to interact with various multi-platform devices.Such enhancements will boost up the users’ app experience as it enables them to use multiple services at one go. It is a win-win situation; for mobile app development companies having hassle-free access to user data from multiple platforms and for users to enjoy the greater amount of flexibility in using IoT devices.Entering in Finance IndustryThe industry with a lot of real-time data and always in need of higher efficiency can significantly benefit from IoT. The application of IoT in the banking and finance sector is already improving overhead productivity while ensuring a higher level of transactional security. This security applies to at both – the bank and the consumer level. Enabling effortless, hassle-free and secure banking transactions, IoT helps improving mobile banking, Smart Cash Points, ATM etc.IoT App developers engaged in enabling higher security has now users easily depositing the cash and transferring their money using any means. IoT app development paves way to make the banking system robust than ever.Empowering Retail SectorThe retail sector is experiencing the most phenomenal transformation with IoT. It has changed the way how customers shop – a massive change from physical shopping to eCommerce. Users prefer online shopping to offline due to greater convenience and saving time from visiting different shops in the market.And now with IoT, the existing retail stores are looking to alter their approach by enabling Bluetooth beacons. This helps to reach out to the target audience and send them offers in a personalised manner. It is a location-based service where customers can avail the product/service information on their mobile phones. They get alert whenever there is a change in the product price or availability if opted for.Making way for innovative business solutionsFor all those having used Uber once will know how IoT makes seamless functioning an easy job. It collects the data from all the connected cab drivers and app users looking for a ride. It does so continuously until another party (drivers) accepts the request showing availability. This shows how IoT empowers innovative businesses to offer better solutions.There will be plenty of innovative businesses heavily depending on IoT to offer solutions which boost the role of IoT app developers in the industry. Such businesses help to solve existing user problems by offering a convenient and simple solution by enabling IoT to work for the same.Final Words…Before companies start developing applications and devices for IoT, there are still some security integrity challenges to IoT app development. Enabling open-source data exchange will have hackers lurking around and this may lead to breaching the system. Also, multiple device connectivity may create lagging problems. The key is to enable develop highly secured systems with planned connectivity architecture offering a secure and smooth experience to users.Author – BioNoman shaikhNoman Shaikh is a Digital Marketing Head at Fixlastmile & which is known for developing top-notch last mile delivery software.

Turkish police use water cannons to clear gay pride rally

first_img ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkish police used water cannons and tear gas against gay pride marchers trying to rally in Istanbul’s central square on Sunday, forcing the thousands of demonstrators to gather several blocks away.Two people were injured, according to the Dogan news agency. The extent of their injuries wasn’t immediately known.Between 100 and 200 protesters were chased away from Taksim Square as they began gathering in the late afternoon.

More delays as Customs QF staff strike

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Long delays and lengthy lines are among the first experiences international passengers are likely to receive upon arrival into Australia today as customs and Qantas workers strikes throughout the day.Customs officers in Darwin kicked off today’s strikes, walking off the job at 3.30am, followed closely by Qantas employees, picking up their posters and signs from 5.00am.The Australia flag carrier said its work stoppages, organised by the Transport Workers Union (TWU) will disrupt up to 6,600 passengers after it was forced to cancel up to 14 flights and delay a further 35 services for up to one hour.Constant industrial action taken out against the airline is creeping into its sixth week, with today’s round being taken out in two hour blocks from 5.00am and 6.00pm peaks at airports across Australia.Qantas Group Executive government and corporate affairs Olivia Wirth explained that the TWU’s pay demands are “not sustainable in the current economic environment” and urged the union to return to the table for more negotiations.“We remain committed to achieving fair and sustainable agreements with all of employees as shown by our new agreements this year with the Australian Services Union (ASU), the Flight Attendants Association of Australia (FAAA) and the NUW,” Ms Wirth said.The Kangaroo carrier is also expecting disruptions tomorrow as its Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) plans a four hour round of action for its members, kicking off from 4.00pm.  “Tomorrow’s strikes by the TWU and Friday’s strike by the Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) are a clear sign that the unions are stepping up their coordinated attacks on Qantas and our passengers,” Ms Wirth added.Meanwhile customs workers employed in over a dozen airports across the nation have also started chanting for better pay and work conditions, with their strikes lasting four hours, with each hour jagged at different times of the day also at various times across the country.Organising strikes, the Community and Public Sector Union national secretary Nadine Flood said strikes were a last resort and are designed to encourage the government to resolve pay disputes fairly.“We regret any inconvenience our strike action may cause, but the blame for these stoppages now lies fairly and squarely with the Government and the APSC,” Ms Flood said.“We would urge people collecting inbound international passengers on Thursday morning to factor possible delays into their plans. “The industrial action will also impact on other Customs services including cargo inspections, Ports,  International Mail centres, and Customs state and national offices.”Flying in or out of Australia today?

New Zealands first smart hotel opens in Queenstown

first_imgNew Zealand’s first smart hotel opens in QueenstownNew Zealand’s first smart hotel opens in QueenstownNew Zealand’s first fully ‘smart’ hotel has opened its doors in the heart of Queenstown.MIPAD Holdings Ltd has opened mi-pad Queenstown, a next generation, energy-conscious hotel experience for the smart traveller and the ultimate marriage of technology, sustainability, comfort and convenience.The six-storey hotel features 57 stylish and well-appointed rooms with the latest in-room tech, multiple ‘social spaces’ and an impressive rooftop terrace.And the key to mi-pad Queenstown is that there is no key.Guests booking their stay download the hotel’s personal app ‘mia’ and their smartphone becomes a room key, meaning physical check-ins (or check outs) are a thing of the past.Mia also has a range of other tricks up her sleeve, with the app enabling guests to set temperatures and mood lighting in their room (even remotely), request room service or alert hotel staff that they don’t want to be disturbed.Access to the hotel is available 24/7 thanks to the technology. Once guests are settled in, mia transforms into a personal digital concierge, delivering the latest information on events, activities or offers and encouraging them to experience the best of this stunning destination.The $15m John Blair-designed hotel is in the heart of Queenstown, less than a two-minute walk from the vibrant centre with its hundreds of bars, restaurants and activity operators set on the shores of stunning Lake Wakatipu.The mi-pad hotel concept is the brainchild of Queenstown property developer Lewis Gdanitz and is the fruition of three years of hard work.“mi-pad is the result of 15 years of research, travelling the world and finding the places that did accommodation really well,” he says.“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to deliver a property that’s unlike anything else on offer in New Zealand, operating on a premise of affordable luxury delivered using the latest technology.“I’m also very proud of the eco-conscious initiatives we have in place for every aspect of the operation.”MIPAD Holdings Ltd is a joint venture between Lewis and experienced hotel investment and development company TJK NZ Ltd, owner of luxury boutique hotels The George in Christchurch and Regent of Rotorua.TJK NZ CEO Stephen Borcoskie said the company had a proud pedigree of leadership in, and commitment to, the New Zealand hotel industry.“Our goal is to always exceed customer expectations by excelling in service delivery, and we’re thrilled to be entering the Queenstown market which consistently leads the way in delivering world-class experiences and lifelong memories to visitors from around the globe.“It makes perfect sense to open a unique property like this in Queenstown.”Hotel manager Kylie Hogan has 20 years’ experience in international resort management.“We’re offering an innovative, connected hotel experience for smart travellers who’d prefer to spend their hard-earned dollars on experiences rather than pay over the odds for accommodation,” she says.“We appreciate that they want to keep in touch with family, friends, or colleagues whether they’re here to ski their hearts out, check out bike trails, enjoy some world-class golf or award-winning wines.“mia’s the key to all of that, the complete package for guests who want to have fun like a local.”The hotel hasn’t forgotten the basics of ensuring guests get a great night’s sleep, with Queen beds, clever storage options, smart TV’s and bathrooms featuring organic products and top-of-the-line hair styling tools.Guests can have as much or as little interaction with mi-pad staff and other guests as they like, including the option to share experiences, photos or messages through mia’s private chat group.A floor-to-ceiling ‘social wall’ in the hotel’s entrance lobby also features mia’s latest updates and guests shared experiences.Although there are snacks and breakfast options available within the hotel, mi-pad’s owners made a conscious decision to keep F&B services to a minimum to encourage guests to savour the town’s renowned eateries.But if they prefer to order-in or BYO, the hotel’s best kept secret is its huge rooftop terrace with an outdoor fireplace, plentiful seating and wraparound 270-degree views of Lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains.The terrace is exclusively available to guests and is the perfect spot to enjoy an outdoor dining experience or luscious wine with some of the best views in town.To unlock the key to the full mi-pad experience, book online at www.mipadhotels.com Source = MIPAD Holdings Ltdlast_img read more

The Fate of Fannie and Freddie

first_imgThe Fate of Fannie and Freddie in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News December 21, 2018 1,122 Views Sharecenter_img Committee Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac Ginnie Mae HOUSING housing finance reforms HPC Jeb Hensarling MBA NAFCU NAR National Association of Home Builders NLIHC NTF Securitization USMI 2018-12-21 Radhika Ojha On Friday, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing to discuss and assess the impact of the Bipartisan Housing Finance Reform Act of 2018 (discussion draft) that was released for public comment in September.Two panels consisting of leaders from the government and housing industry discussed the impact of this draft on the housing finance market and the need for Congress to address comprehensive housing finance reform during this hearing. The testimonies included how the discussion draft could facilitate a sustainable housing finance system.Starting off the proceedings, House Financial Committee Chairman, Jeb Hensarling said, “On September 6, my colleagues across the aisle, Mr. Delaney of Maryland and Mr. Himes of Connecticut, and I released publicly a discussion draft of a Bipartisan Housing Finance Reform Act 2018, which offers a bipartisan path forward to fix our housing finance system through a grand bargain,” Hensarling said. “Our legislation will repeal the GSE charters permanently ending their monopoly and transition to a system that allows qualified mortgages backed by an improved private credit enhancing with regulated diversified capital resources to access the explicit full government securitization guarantee provided by Ginnie Mae.”Thanking the witnesses, Hensarling said that he wanted to hear their feedback on how to improve this discussion draft.In his testimony on the first panel at the hearing, Edward DeMarco, President of the Housing Policy Council (HPC) said that the discussion draft “moved the debate over housing finance reform forward in several key aspects.” DeMarco was the  Senior Deputy Director and COO at the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) when the GSEs were placed under its conservatorship 10 years ago and later lead it as Acting Director.Saying that the HPC supported this bill, DeMarco touched upon components that needed additional consideration and revision as well as a few areas of concern.Calling for the inclusion of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) into the bill, DeMarco said, “The omission of FHA introduces troublesome incentives that could create added loan volume and risk for FHA. We believe that any housing finance reform proposal should fully envision and embrace complementary rules and requirements for both conventional conforming and government-backed mortgages, to ensure a balanced continuum of financing options for all consumers aspiring to homeownership as well as equitable treatment and fair competition for all industry stakeholders.”In her testimony, Diane Yentel, President and CEO of National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) discussed the country’s severe shortage of affordable homes for the lost income people and the opportunity that housing finance reform presented to expand the National Housing Trust Fund (NTF) to help alleviate the crisis. “The foundation of any housing finance system must be to ensure decent, affordable homes for both homeowners and renters, including households with the lowest incomes,” Yentel said.Speaking on behalf of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Vince Malta, the President-Elect of the association said, “NAR strongly supports many of the discussion draft’s provisions and believes the foundation for the future housing finance system much include an explicit government guarantee, regulatory flexibility, strong and reasonable regulatory authority, use of the Common Securitization Platform, and establishing a cash window.”Looking at the bill from a lender’s perspective, Robert Broeksmit, President and CEO of the MBA told the committee that the association believed that robust competition in the secondary market promoted a highly competitive primary market, which in turn, “provides borrowers with greater choice at affordable prices. Additionally, the draft includes numerous provisions that prohibit discrimination on lender size or business model, which we agree is of paramount importance.”Jerry Howard, CEO of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) told the committee that NAHB believed many regulatory reforms undertaken at the GSEs under the direction of the FHFA had strengthened the safety and soundness of the housing finance system and needed to ultimately be codified in legislation. “NAHB appreciates that the Act has incorporated several components of these reforms, including access for small lenders, the use of the common securitization platform, and pricing parity across lenders,” Howard said.According to Don Calcaterra Jr. President, Local Lending Group Loans and VP, Community Home Lender Association,  the bill provided many good provisions from a small lender’s perspective. However, he asked for more protections for small lenders to be included in it.Representing the National Association of Federally-insured Credit Unions (NAFCU), Rick Stafford, President and CEO, Tower Federal Credit Union told the committee that there were a number of positive aspects about the bill. “Still, the current system works for credit unions and we urge you to move cautiously with any reforms. As you consider housing finance reform, we urge you to adhere to the credit union principles outlined in my testimony,” he said.During her testimony, Lindsey Johnson, President U.S. Mortgage Insurers (USMI) said, “We believe using Ginnie Mae is a sensible means to create a system that puts consumers and taxpayers’ interests first. As Congress considers the viability of allowing Ginnie Mae to guaranty conventional loans, USMI thinks a good first step would be to consider a pilot program within Ginnie Mae to substitute loan-level private credit enhancements for insurance provided by a federal agency.”Representing an economist’s view on the bill, Alex J. Pollock, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Financial Markets, R Street Institute said that the draft advanced the development of fundamental housing finance reform to move towards a system with greater private capital at risk, more competition, and a robust risk distribution to achieve sustainable home finance for Americans.However, Dr, Norbert J. Michel, Director, Center for Data Analysis, The Heritage Foundation said that if policymakers want to make housing more affordable, they should push for an open, vibrant, competitive market, without heavy regulation and government guarantees.To read the detailed testimonies and the memorandum of the bill, click here.last_img read more

Could a Group of 5 Playoff be on the way Maybe

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix College football’s national championship will be awarded over the next two weeks and, for the 32nd consecutive season, the FBS mid-majors are not a part of the process. The last program from outside a major conference to claim a FBS national championship was BYU way back in 1984. Before that? Army in 1946.Programs from the Group of 5 — the American, MAC, Mountain West, Conference USA and Sun Belt conferences, plus independents Army, BYU, Massachusetts and (beginning in 2018) New Mexico State — are playing a different game than the Power 5, whether they admit it or not. The BCS was kinder to the mid-majors — TCU, then a member of the Mountain West, finished the 2009 season ranked No. 4 and finished No. 3 in 2010 — but the College Football Playoff has pushed the Group of 5 even further away from the focal point.In 19 individual sets of rankings to date, no Group of 5 team has climbed higher than No. 13, as Memphis did for one week in the 2015 season. This year’s Western Michigan squad, unbeaten and with two wins over Big Ten opponents, is the highest-ranked Group of 5 champion in the 3-year history of the system — and they’re No. 15. Under the current system, Group of 5 teams are playing for their respective conference’s championships and a greater “championship” of winning a New Year’s Six bowl game over a Power 5 opponent — which, to be fair, the Group of 5 has done in each of the first two years of the system, as No. 20 Boise State beat Arizona in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl and No. 18 Houston upended Florida State in the 2015 Peach Bowl.ESPN’s Brett McMurphy has a story today about the “growing” number of Group of 5 officials that would support a Group of 5-specific playoff. It’s unclear exactly how many commissioners and ADs are for or against the idea, given that McMurphy quoted five officials and three of them were against it. Northern Illinois AD Sean Frazier, a strong proponent of the idea, was one of the few willing to go on record. “Every division of college football has a national championship — Power 5, FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA — every division, that is, except the Group of 5,” Frazier told ESPN.The decision to create a Group of 5 playoff would fall to those respective commissioners — it was the Power 5 commissioners who created the College Football Playoff — and one has come out strongly against the idea. “The answer is an emphatic no,” American commissioner Mike Aresco told ESPN. “We compete for national championships like anyone else in FBS, including the Power 5, and have no interest in any kind of separate championship.”Aresco and his like-minded peers may be swayed from that position if the money was big enough, and McMurphy wrote that, “NBC, CBS and ESPN have interest in televising a Group of 5 playoff, an industry source said.” What that support means, though, remains unclear.The Group of 5 playoff is currently in its embryonic, bar-room debate, “wouldn’t it be cool if…?” stage, so details of how a hypothetical Group of 5 playoff would work still need work. Would, say, this year’s Western Michigan team drop out of the Cotton Bowl to play in the Group of 5 playoff, or would the event continue without them while the Broncos remained in the Cotton Bowl. The Group of 5 contract with the CFP runs through 2025, so how easy would it be to break out of that?Regardless, there’s no question a Group of 5 playoff would be a success. The best teams at that level play at a tremendously high level — as their 7-2 record against Power 5 teams in BCS/CFP bowls can attest.But still the glass ceiling for mid-majors exists, and a Group of 5-specific playoff would provide an opportunity to showcase the football at that level as a worthy brand of football in and of itself, rather than a counter-argument to a question against Power 5 dominance that will never be answered. The bowl system gave us two such games in the past dozen years to prove a Group of 5 playoff would work — the 2004 Liberty Bowl that saw No. 10 Louisville (then a C-USA member) beat No. 9 Boise State in a 44-40 thriller and the 2010 Fiesta Bowl, a 17-10 win by No. 6 Boise State over No. 4 TCU. Both games sold out their respective venues, and the Fiesta Bowl drew an 8.2 TV rating.A hypothetical playoff of, say, Western Michigan versus Western Kentucky and Temple against San Diego State would be a fantastic celebration of Group of 5 football. Let’s hope it happens.last_img read more
