I should not be surprised, but during the last few weeks IoT has came up more than once. I did remember the term, but I did not realize the broad impact we are facing today and in the future. Therefore, I saw the need to expand my own knowledge and pass along some important points.

What Is the IoT?

The IoT links smart objects to the Internet. It can enable an exchange of data never available before, and bring users information in a more secure way.

Laplant Brothers

Line Goyette

One Laplante brother, Paul, arrived in 1978 in the family business founded by their father in 1955; the other, Marc, in 1987. It is often said that opposites attract. The brothers speak of complementarity. Together they evolve in a changing market, the strengths of each allowing them to adapt to these changes relatively smoothly. Their approach has never really changed. It was inherited from their father: respect and integrity first. The brothers say their father was known as a gentleman before becoming a businessman. It seems that Paul’s son, the third generation coming to join Laplante & Associés, also shares this philosophy.

Paul arrived at the company at the end of his university studies, just as he was about begin a career in production management. His father was experiencing health problems and asked him to join the company, which operated at that time from home. As for Marc, a similar scenario presented itself almost 10 years later at the end of his university studies in biology (he wanted to become a veterinarian). Asked to lend a hand after the company had just lost an employee, he never left. “Our integration was easy. We already knew everybody, they were part of our lives since our childhood,” explain the two brothers. “In our field, family ties and business links intersect often.”
