The Connect Compute Blog is my contribution to keeping the rapidly developing IoT community together and up to date. It’s an informal personal ad hoc summary of my most recent findings, views and thoughts. I do my best to make reasonably frequent updates and try my best to answer to comments and keep it alive. It’s based on what to the best of my knowledge are facts and my intent is only to contribute not damage. I am primarily using the excellent Stock Free Images www.stockfreeimages.com for photos. I am also writing the “Internet of Everything Chronicle” (about 1000 subscribers) aiming at decision makers who want to stay tuned, and I am writing books, articles and reports from time to time.

    A white paper by Oracle you might be interested in on M2M drivers and solution requirements.

    The findings are quite fascinating and thought provoking, excellent content for blogs and articles on the future of M2M.
