Internet of Things (IoT)

Turning what you have into new intelligence

They are out there already—millions of phones with GPS, trucks with telematics, pumps and pipes with sensors that measure temperature, pressure, and volume. So what’s all the hype about the IoT?

IoT, the Internet of Things, is changing the way things, people, businesses, and organizations connect, work, and learn, and react. It is enabling new models of business and new interactions between people, between devices, and between people and devices.

Driven by the lowering costs of sensors, storage, and computing technologies and the prevalence of smart devices and wireless networks, IoT offers unprecedented opportunity for intelligence and will make a profound impact on our social, political, and economic systems. It will play an increasingly important role in our everyday lives and allow the exchange of information, improvement of services and operations, and delivery of more of what we need when we need it.

  • Connected retail increases customer interaction and improves customer satisfaction.
  • Connected schools improve student safety and provide matriculation to track progress, attendance, participation, engagement and more to promote success.
  • Connected municipalities can optimize traffic patterns and development with a city-wide WIFI mesh that shares information with cameras, traffic lights, and other sensors.
  • Connected exploration, production and services converges OT and IoT to eliminate the distance between remote sites and the board room and deliver real-time data to the experts and decision-makers who need it.
  • Connected fleets improve customer service via more efficient routes and improved driving skills that lead to lower cost and faster service.
  • Connected routes increase sales and reduce loss and shrinkage with IP cameras or RFID and barcode systems that tie directly into back office systems.
  • Connected manufacturing converges OT and IoT to streamline processes and improve the bottom line.


Turnkey Solutions that Leverage Existing Infrastructure

Figuring out what you have and what you need to achieve the full potential of IoT requires a unique and powerful partner like GDT.

The GDT IoT team knows technology—networks, data centers, beacons, smartphones, access points and applications, analytics, data warehousing and data storage. Focusing on turnkey IoT solutions, we understand how to leverage existing infrastructure and integrate with a secure ecosystem that collects data from diverse and unrelated sources and enables the analysis of real-time data that leads to actionable intelligence.

On the forefront of the IoT evolution, GDT is spearheading City of the Future initiative in various cities as many communites and entertainment hubs are investing in massive revitalization projects. Alongside industry leaders like Cisco, SAP, Intel, LG-MRI, AXIS and many more, GDT will soon change the way we interact with cities – and the way our cities interact with us.

The GDT Digital Business team has the multi-vendor expertise to deliver vendor-agnostic solutions. We partner with innovators and leaders in business and technology with a goal of providing thought and action leadership that educates our clients on potential impacts and benefits.

That being said, our teams treat technology as a means, not the end. Our greatest value is not in delivering devices for our customer to use, but that we use the latest devices, applications and infrastructures to deliver outcomes that drive innovation and success for the long run.

Take advantage of the IoT evolution

In our own backyard, we’re on the verge of demonstrating the seemingly boundless array of possibilities that exists within the framework of the IoT evolution. Specializing in turnkey delivery, GDT can help you take advantage of opportunities for efficiency and interaction, to make you more relevant in the short-term and more profitable in the long-run.
