Internet of Things

// noun

EN (IoT) After the well-known 1st, 2nd and 3rd, we have now reached our 4th Industrial Revolution. This new revolution will change the world with smart connected objects that monitor, control, analyse and optimise several aspects of our lives. These connected objects are part of a large network of objects and services, called the Internet of Things (IoT). In other words, this growing number of Internet-enabled devices can network and communicate with each other and with other web-enabled gadgets, making it possible to produce new information, and thus becoming an integral part of the Internet. By being connected, companies and organisations can add more value for their customers and grow their business! So what are you waiting for? Get connected!


NL Na de befaamde Eerste, Tweede en Derde, zijn we nu aangekomen aan de Vierde Industriële Revolutie. Deze nieuwe revolutie gaat de wereld veranderen aan de hand van slimme connected objects die verschillende aspecten van ons leven monitoren, controleren, analyseren en optimaliseren. Connected objects maken deel uit van een groot netwerk van voorwerpen en diensten, genaamd het Internet der Dingen, ofte Internet of Things (IoT). Dit groeiend aantal geconnecteerde of slimme apparaten kan met elkaar communiceren. Dit opent een hele doos nieuwe informatie (big data) waar we door middel van analytics belangrijke inzichten uit kunnen destilleren. En je weet wat ze zeggen, meten is weten en kennis is macht. Door mee op de IoT-kar te springen, kunnen bedrijven en organisaties meerwaarde bieden aan hun consumenten terwijl ze hun bedrijf doen bloeien! Waar wacht je nog op? Ga en verbind u!


What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).

So, you just talked to a developer and didn’t understand any of the words he/she used? If those words aren’t in our lexicon yet, we’ll translate them to human language for you.
