The first in a two-part series.
Remember the first time you saw someone speak to their watch or the first time you saw a self-driving car? Of course, because you knew it was important as it was happening.
However, it’s the LAST time you see something that takes the prize. The power of innovation doesn’t lie in the firsts, but the lasts.
I know this sounds backwards, but stick with me.
True progress is about the lasts. It’s about the last time you have to drive yourself, the last time there is a traffic jam, the last time a patient doesn’t receive the necessary care in a timely manner because the equipment cannot be found, and the last time you wonder if your customers’ dwell statistics accurately measure the intent to purchase.
This world of lasts is created by what is already around us, observing and recording. Sensors are creating incredible amounts of data from mobile devices, health trackers, home thermostats, car computers, WiFi networks, and so much more. We depend on these sensors for the ability to understand the NOW in order to improve the TOMORROW.
Imagine. The last time you’ll be on the lower end of the curve because you don’t have insights to your data. The last time you’ll ever wonder if you can follow the customer journey as they enter your retail mall or store. The last time you’ll have to purchase a specialized RFID tag to track assets and monitor multiple dashboards to see everything at once. The last time your analysts will wonder if their statistical assumptions are correct because just how correct is the data they’re collecting?
The Internet of Things is now more and more prolific and the deeper you look at what we are doing at Sysorex, the more obvious this becomes. With precise data through AirPatrol and real-time analytics with LightMiner, we are able to provide the information you’ve never seen before on your customer base and your operations. This information will change your strategy and allow you to jump the curve to become more successful in the future.
It’s about the world of lasts so we can open up the firsts of tomorrow.

Forward Looking Statements

While management has based any forward-looking statements included in this blog on its current expectations, the information on which such expectations were based may change. These forward-looking statements rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of the control of Sysorex and its subsidiaries, which could cause actual results to materially differ from such statements. Such risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to, the fluctuation of global economic conditions, the performance of management and employees, the company’s ability to obtain financing, competition, general economic conditions and other factors that are detailed in the company’s periodic and current reports available for review at www.sec.gov. Furthermore, we operate in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment where new and unanticipated risks may arise.
