It was 1918 – World War I had just ended and the Spanish Flu epidemic was raging across Central Florida. In Orlando, a dedicated group of doctors and community members joined together to raise a 50-bed, non-air-conditioned hospital to care for the sick. Orange General Hospital opened with the mission of providing top-level care for all community members, and has done just that for the past 95 years.
While the mission for the organization hasn’t changed, Orange General Hospital has grown to become Orlando Health – one of Central Florida’s most comprehensive, not-for-profit hospital systems composed of six wholly-owned hospitals and two partnership hospitals. The 2,000-plus bed system serves nearly 2 million residents and includes Orlando Regional Medical Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, and the Arnold Palmer Medical Center, which consists of Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Winnie Palmer Hospital for Woman & Babies. As a not-for-profit organization, Orlando Health’s top priority is the welfare of the community, and all excess revenues are used to benefit the community.

It’s summertime. For most people, the warmer temps and holiday weekends are the perfect excuse for a vacation. But have you ever traveled to an amusement park or exotic destination only to wait in line for hours for the hottest ride or trendiest restaurant? Or perhaps your coolness factor would skyrocket if you didn’t have to keep track of ticket stubs, receipts and maps? Well, the ups and downs of amusement park experiences may be able to be saved for the roller coasters. Could the Internet of Everything be changing how we experience…experiences?
Just recently, I stumbled across an article on All Things D by Bonnie Cha titled, Tomorrowland Today: Disney MagicBand Unlocks New Guest Experience for Park Goers. The article highlights new technology that Disney World Resort in Orlando has been using in trial phases and hopes to have broad implementation soon. The technology, called MagicBand, is a connected band (bracelet) designed to be an all-in-one device connecting park goers to everything through Radio Frequency technology. Visitors will be able to access the theme park and hotel rooms, purchase food and souvenirs and add extra options via My Disney Experience website.

Join the conversation with @DaveTheFuturist #IoE2023
It’s probably no surprise to you that my favorite part of Cisco Live is discussing future technology. This year, there are so many ways the Internet of Everything (IoE) is connecting people, process, data and things.
For example, we are looking at a world where our clothes, our glasses, even the pills we swallow, will be connected. In the business arena, IoE enables new processes and creates new value. The data we consume and create is providing new insights. And we are connecting things at record rates. Today there are about 10 billion things connected to the Internet, a little more than one for each person on the planet. By 2023, there will be five times as many—50 billion things—connected. And there is $14.4 trillion of potential economic “value at stake” for global private-sector businesses over the next decade, as a result of the emergence of the Internet of Everything.

When you think about the technology transitions that have happened in just the past 20 years and the number of connections that have been enabled, it’s truly mind boggling. The world wide web was just in its infancy in 1993. The first smartphone was introduced less than 10 years ago, and by 2012, that number had grown to one billion. Today, we have more than 10 billion connected devices. As the number of things connected to the network increases – from data, voice, video, and smart devices to new breeds of applications – the opportunities for new business value increase exponentially. The potential value at stake across private industries alone is estimated to exceed $14.4 trillion by 2022.

Last week I went to one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco…. Swan Oyster. It’s an old school “dive” with the authentic rustic ambience you would expect from a 100 year old SF oyster bar. I waited in line for 2 HOURS for four reasons……well 3.8 reasons. First, you can’t find fresher oysters anywhere, second; the smoked salmon on rye melts in your mouth and the 3.8th reason…. well, my mother in law loves it (that deserves more weight than 1 reason, so I gave 1.8)
So, why I’m a being a food critic at an event dedicated to IT, industrial and manufacturing professionals. Well, I know you are constantly analyzing reasons to make the right decisions whether for your family, business or career. Even if they’re as mundane as determining if you should stand in line for 2 hours with you dear mother in law for a dozen oysters and a generous helping of smoked salmon on rye. So, I thought I would give you $14.4 Trillion (reasons!!!) to visit the IoT Pavilion (booth #1558) June 23-27 at Cisco Live in Orlando this year.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) will create opportunities to capture $14.4 trillion of value between 2013 – 2022. Of which, $3.88 trillion (reasons!!) worth of value can be obtained from manufacturing and industrial industries. That’s $3.88 trillion (reasons!!) of cost savings and revenue generation that can be realized by taking advantage of the IoE revolution!!!
What is IoE anyway? Is it like the Y2000 hype…. absolutely not.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) connects people, processes, data, and things (IoT) to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before creating new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity. IoE will be a disruptive force that radically transforms they way we create, build, deliver and experience every product and service we use today.
Every manufacturer will need to connect existing devices to the Internet for control monitoring, and intelligent decision analysis. Previously unconnected devices will become smart objects and sensors connected seamlessly and securely throughout the enterprise. Applications that haven’t been identified will be created and enabled to drive operational excellence, improved asset utilization, supply chain agility, innovation, workforce productivity and increased customer satisfaction and acquisition.
The $14.4 trillion (reasons!!!) dwindle fairly quickly over time. Manufacturers and industrial producers do not have long to develop and deploy the infrastructure required to take ADVANTAGE of the IoE revolution. The challenge is that many of the things (IoT) deployed in industrial environments were built for very specific purposes, and due to lack of standards were developed with their own proprietary protocols.
These approaches and strategies produce highly complex and costly infrastructures that do not scale or provide the flexibility to capture the $14.4 trillion value form IoE.
But there’s good news…….
