5.6 Summary

The healthcare model that is used in this chapter details M2M, M2P, and P2P interactions. It models every aspect of patient monitoring from basic vital signs to dispatching healthcare professionals to treat patients.

Descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics help shape how a business functions.

Modelling the potential IoE solution identifies the changes in the organisation’s processes. organisations identify the areas that are best served by re-engineering processes using a flowchart. A flowchart uses symbols to represent workflows and decisions.

A network topology is a kind of map. There are two types of network topologies, physical and logical. The physical topology displays the layout and location of all of the devices that comprise the network. The logical topology represents the way data flows through the network.

To prototype ideas for the IoE, it helps to have design skills, electrical skills, physical/mechanical skills (work with your hands to put things together), programming skills, and to understand how TCP/IP works.

Programming is critical to the IoE. There are many other free resources that can help you get started with programming. Three of the most popular platforms are Arduino, Raspberry PI, and Beaglebone. Check with your local government, schools, and chamber of commerce for information about workshops, classes, and expert advice.

The Cisco Networking Academy helps individuals prepare for industry-recognised certifications and entry-level information and communication technology (ICT) careers in virtually every type of industry. The internet of everything is creating demand for a broad spectrum of IT jobs, and creating opportunities for exciting new jobs in emerging fields.
