Part 1 - "Blue"
The first component, “Blue” stands for “The Blue Economy”. The Blue Economy.org defines this as ZERI´s philosophy in action. This is where the best for health and the environment is cheapest and the necessities for life are free thanks to a local system of production and consumption that works with what you have.
Wikipedia defines The Blue Economy as a concept. In a book entitled The Blue Economy: 10 years – 100 Innovations – 100 million jobs by Gunter Pauli, the ultimate aim that a Blue Economy business model will shift society from scarcity to abundance “with what is locally available”, by tackling issues that cause environmental and related problems in new ways.
Moss.org.au defines The Blue Economy that ENABLES IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH for virtually every part of the Economy. It is also shaping a new way to do business with zero waste, and represents a sustainable and competitive business framework – based on innovations that offer investors and society economic, social and environmental benefits.
By harnessing the power of the IoT and data analytics, the Blue Economy can indeed become a reality. By innovation both through technologies as well as the approach to service delivery, huge and positive impacts to the corporate bottom line can be achieved while at the same time delivering a better place for our families, societies and our planet all at the same time.
Part 2 - "IoT" The Internet of Things
Wikipedia defines the Internet of Things (IoT) as the network of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.
Forbes defines The Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.
