Summary: Paul Taylor covers the nearing convergence of the virtual and physical worlds through the big IoT players such as GE, Cisco and Xively by LogMeIn.
“The promise of [the internet of things] has captured the imagination of consumers and businesses, alike,” says Chad Jones, vice-president of product management at Xively, a subsidiary of cloud-based software company LogMeIn.
He warns that the infrastructure needed to turn these ideas into reality will be “complex and requires significant, specialised [sic] expertise above and beyond devices and applications, and beyond the skills and resources of most businesses”.
Companies such as GE and Xively plan to provide cloud-based services that will allow businesses to openly collaborate and create products that others can share to hopefully overcome some of these difficulties.

Summary: Business Weekly’s Tony Quested reviews ARM and LogMeIn’s release of XIvely which will jump start the IoT revolution.
“The IoT enables a world where devices, data and places are interconnected with applications and users over the internet, transforming how people discover, interact and experience their world.”
“Developers and businesses will be able to focus on their own innovations rather than on infrastructure and platforms – triggering accelerated time-to-market as developers accelerate from prototyping to volume deployment, according to John Cornish, executive VP and general manager of ARM’s system design division.”

Summary: TelecomTV discusses LogMeIn and ARM’s joint partnership to promote LogMeIn’s Xively Cloud Services with an IoT starter kit.
“The technical smarts you must have to be a successful remote access service provider (LogMeIn’s original line of work) serendipitously become just what you need to orchestrate the secure connections for thousands (yes eventually billions) of connected things like sensors.”
“The result is Xively Cloud Services, Cosm’s platform promoted into an IoT Public Cloud with extra platform capabilities added and thus designed to scale up to service large numbers of devices and users across a broad geography.”

Summary: Gigaom’s David Meyer reviews LogMeIn’s launch of Xively Cloud Services that will allow inventors and developers to create next-generation connected devices, and its partnership with ARM.
“Well, those startups now have seriously heavyweight competition in the form of LogMeIn, the remote connectivity specialist, and ARM, the British firm whose low-power chip designs underpin the vast majority of mobile devices, and which is now competing with Intel to own the IoT space.”
“LogMeIn’s offering is already pretty mature for this space and, given the momentum rapidly building behind the IoT movement, its timing is exquisite.”
