Michel Taride, President, Hertz International, said: "It is a big pleasure for us to celebrate the 15th anniversary of our partnership with KrisFlyer, Singapore Airlines' frequent flyer program. Hertz's innovative rental car services offered at approximately 10,090 locations around the world together with KrisFlyer's benefits and rewards make this partnership a strong benefit for customers.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
