Gartner Emerging Technology Analysis: Software Licensing & Entitlement Management is the Key to Monetizing the Internet of Things

The Key to Monetizing the Internet of Things
Simply selling more device units will not result in the massive spike in profits manufacturers are hoping for as they make a play to compete in the Internet of Things (IoT). This is the conclusion of the new Gartner Emerging Technology Analysis Report, Software Licensing & Entitlement Management is the Key to Monetizing the Internet of Things.

According to the report, manufacturers will have to reinvent their business models to profit from the Internet of Things. In addition to selling more Internet-connected devices, businesses will also have to figure out how to make money from the software they develop that flexibly configures their devices and powers functionality - and they'll also have to leverage software licensing and entitlement management as the mechanism to capture those additional revenues.

More Products, More Services, More Revenue
- Less Costs

Licensing and entitlement management technology serves as the key mechanism that enables manufacturers to protect and monetize the embedded intellectual property running as software on these connected devices or the external software applications associated with them.

Read this report for other key findings and recommendations, including:

- Defining the Internet of Things
- Applying licensing to the Internet of Things
- Licensing and entitlement management-components, models and meters
- Licensing lifecycle management and the relationship of entitlement management to licensing
- Usage-based licensing models
- Technology adoption and impact
- Actions to take now and within the next 12-18 months

Enhancing Mobile Development with Klocwork Checkers for Android

Over half of all smartphones sold today use Android, and it's a popular choice for embedded systems. Developers in various parts of the Android stack have unique security and error detection needs - areas where static code analysis can help. While many analysis tools fail to understand the Android stack, Klocwork has a knowledge base of every function call in the platform, helping developers produce more secure code with fewer defects. This white paper explains these checkers using real code examples.

Challenging Some the Myths About Static Code Analysis

5/20/2014 5:07:07 PM
Static code analysis is the analysis of whole-program source code without actually executing the program. It has many benefits - fewer defects, faster delivery times, better standards compliance - but a number of interpretations and misconceptions about the technology have emerged over time. This white paper addresses some of the myths associated with SCA and provides examples of how it provides you, the developer, with real value.

Fleet and Asset Management: Transforming Logistics with Machine-to-Machine Communications

M2M has already had a massive impact in the global transportation sector. It's becoming a mainstay of transport operations where freight needs to be delivered rapidly and safely. It's helping logistics companies manage global fleets to ensure that consignments arrive in optimum condition. M2M has taken tracking to a new and much more sophisticated level, creating new possibilities for companies wishing to track freight and vehicles.

With competitive pressures intensifying and the pace of innovation accelerating, recognizing key trends, understanding their implications and, where appropriate, responding decisively is essential to remain successful.

This paper describes our thinking relating to understanding the impact of the connected revolution. If you are interested in topics such as the growth of the Internet of things and machine-to-machine (M2M), the opportunity it represents for businesses and the requirements for success, then you will find this of interest.

Defend Against Injection-based Attacks
Klocwork
1/7/2014 4:52:28 PM
It goes without saying that as software becomes more prevalent in our daily activities, it becomes imperative that we implement that software in the most secure manner possible.

Software is everywhere and touches everything we do - from the computers we work on to life-saving insulin pumps and pacemakers. Software controls and manages the embedded systems that provide us with electricity, water, natural gas, transportation, communications, and more. Increasingly, all these devices and systems are connected to each other behind the scenes, resulting in a growing "network effect".

Couple this with end-users that expect devices to work properly and don't want to think about the technical ramifications of the software being used and we begin to realize how important it is to write code that is resistant to malicious attack.

This first in a series of white papers explores the most common security vulnerabilities currently plaguing the software development industry, and presents different ways in which Static Code Analysis, or SCA, can detect them. When you download "Defend Against Injection Based Attacks" you will learn:

- A detailed description of the weakness
- How each weakness presents itself to the end user and the developer
- An explanation of the mitigation strategies to help resolve each issue

3 Must Follow Guidelines for Mitigating M2M Software Security Risks
Klocwork
12/2/2013 10:27:58 AM
Everywhere we turn today, we find software embedded in our lives – from our smart phones and cars to the planes we fly in and the life saving equipment in hospitals. As all these systems continue to evolve and become more connected to each other and to the internet, the risks associated with unsecured code grow too. And not always from malicious hacking attempts; faulty code in many of these applications can present significant security risks.

Download the “Three Must-Follow Guidelines for Mitigating M2M Software Security Risks” whitepaper from Klocwork and learn why embedded software teams need to follow just a few critical guidelines to protect their systems, including:

• Why address security early, and how to take defensive measures against security threats
• How and why to build security in at the development stage
• How to protect systems against unauthorized changes and malware attacks

M2M Adoption Barometer

Specialist B2B research firm Circle Research surveyed 327 executives involved in setting M2M strategy for their organisations which operated in five key industries - automotive, energy & utilities, manufacturing, transport & logistics and retail - across Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas. Our findings make one thing very clear: every organisation is treading its own path on the road to M2M, from initial strategy to final implementation. Some have already arrived; others are just starting out. But there are some clear trends in how the technology and its adoption are evolving.

M2M for business security : Connect and extend your site and asset security

6/19/2013 11:35:27 AM
Security is an industry in flux. While in many cases the core activities and tools haven't changed - CCTV for monitoring and alarms for perimeter protection, for instance - technology has evolved rapidly, creating new possibilities for securing businesses and their assets against theft, fire and other risks. Machine to machine (M2M) communications in particular has enabled a step change in functionality in three security applications: alarm systems, CCTV and asset tracking. This paper is specifically aimed at manufacturers and distributors of security equipment, but will also be relevant for enterprises with significant or specific in-house security needs.
