What is The Moab Foundation?
The Moab Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2018 that uses Connected Intelligence technologies to help create a more sustainable planet by addressing the needs of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
What is Connected Intelligence?
Connected Intelligence represents the intersection of Networks, Mobility, Analytics, the Internet of Things, and Distributed Computing where Data is transformed into Value and Actions are taken on Insights.
What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals all about?
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect to leave no one behind and it’s important that we achieve each Goal by 2030.
How can Connected Intelligence help with UN Sustainable Development Goals?
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure,” is a simple but powerful quote from Peter Drucker. He elaborated further and said, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” W. Edwards Deming famously quoted, “In God we trust, all others must bring data.” We believe capturing data about the world around us will lead to the measurement, management, and improvement needed to help achieve many of the UN SDGs. The Internet of Things works with the other components of Connected Intelligence to make all this possible.
What is the Internet of Things?
The Internet of Things is a network of connected devices that collect and share data about themselves and the environment around them without human intervention.
At its most basic level, the Internet of Things allows you to remotely know, locate, control, measure, and improve things in near real-time. Imagine the problems you could solve if you knew the state of everything in your organization or environment and could reason over that knowledge. We think the Internet of Things has a big role to play in tackling many of the society’s biggest problems. We therefore created a simple, Connected Intelligence technology called Moab to lend a helping hand to the people and organizations working to make many of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals a reality. Moab is just one piece of the puzzle and we’ll need help from like-minded partners looking to improve our world with network, compute, storage, sensor, and analytics capabilities.
If you didn’t already guess, we’re inspired by the beauty of the Arches and Canyonlands national parks that surround the wonderful town of Moab, Utah.
