  • Wider Team had a verifiable 2022

    Wider Team had a verifiable 2022

    Our small band of strategy consultants gave back to our professional communities in 2022. Here’s the recap of our digital identity, ethics, manufacturing, and supply chain talks, papers, standards work, and workshops.

  • Your IoT Trust Gap (and how to close it)

    Your IoT Trust Gap (and how to close it)

    Most devices today still lack strong identity. This is dangerous in healthcare as IoMT and medtech explode. This Wider Team research note expands on this with quotes from experts.

  • Six months goes fast: December’s Predictions

    End-of-year predictions are fun. But the last six months were as surprising as the six before. How did we do?

  • Wider’s High Assurance Digital Identity Maturity Model

    Wider’s High Assurance Digital Identity Maturity Model

    High Assurance Digital Identity for #IoT (and #IoMT) doesn’t just happen. You have to build distinctive competence within your enterprise and without. This is our first draft.

  • High Assurance Digital Identity in Healthcare

    High Assurance Digital Identity in Healthcare

    We know we need High Assurance Digital Identity. But we don’t know what this is, exactly. However, to realize the full potential of Internet of Things (IoT) investment we must approach the Identity of Things (IDoT) differently than what we are accustomed to for the identity of persons. We believe the true value of IoT […]

  • Quick and Dirty Maturity Modeling

    Quick and Dirty Maturity Modeling

    Would you like to be better? To be great with your Identity of Things? Wider Team talked with experts and friends about this for the last year. We grouped kinds of competencies and capabilities. And we’ve even seen some “walk before you run” dependencies. So, maturity models, right?   Specifics about our model are another post. […]

  • Why is IoT arriving slower in some industries? Identity and other blockers

    Our team talks with many digital identity and IoT professionals each week. One of our Michaels remarked that diffusion of innovation and propagation of both IoT and digital identity seems uneven. Three examples of uneven IoT and Identity of Things adoption…   🏭 Medical device factories IDoT is already pervasive within high assurance settings such as […]

  • In 2021, CV19 will still fuel healthcare’s digital transformation

    Epic and Cerner will jump on the covid-fueled telehealth bandwagon, awkwardly. But their hunger to control every digital touch point will reach into remote monitoring, telehealth, and consumer devices, and each connected e-health device outside a healthcare facility. Healthcare IT doesn’t want to manage vast fleets of unmanageable devices. WiderPoV: But being part of patient lives between encounters […]

  • In 2021, #IoMT and #IDoT #cybercrime grows 137pct

    In 2021, #IoMT and #IDoT #cybercrime grows 137pct

    WiderPoV: Sutton’s Law: Spending on connected medical things created more attack surfaces, and more attractive ones. One of the safest bets we made. We’re not sorry we made it. HADI helps defend your things and the downstream lives. More Wider predictions.

  • In 2021, more #edge #AI in pharma, healthcare

    In 2021, more #edge #AI in pharma, healthcare

    Most AI is cloud deployed, like most software. But academia and industry are pulling pattern recognition and other ML behavior into clinical devices, and into the EdgeOps services that care for and authenticate them. Read more about TinyML, machine learning for devices with little memory, power, storage, or connectivity. WiderPoV: “With great power comes great responsibility.” Trusting […]

  • In 2021, healthcare IoT interop more vital than features

    In 2021, healthcare IoT interop more vital than features

    Ecosystems live on open standards. IIoT identity networks? Moreso. In 2021, proprietary healthcare identity will exclude you from many of the biggest buying decisions.

  • In 2021, health facilities managers lead #IIoT spending growth

    In 2021, health facilities managers lead #IIoT spending growth

    While a lot of healthcare #IoT spend goes to smart beds and smarter robot arms, a surprisingly large chunk is going into the plant itself. Smarter buildings with safer HVAC can and do save lives. And cash flow. New hospitals, clinics, and ambulances are easy. Retrofitting with smarter heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is slower, costlier, & harder to install, but will protect more patients. Systems that can afford it will invest ahead of the next contagion. WiderPoV: This is a labor safety issue.
