The business impact of IoT

Transforming the world with IoT

171012 Io T 1 Medium

The internet of things (IoT) is one of the more recent buzzwords in ICT, so obviously we at ADM want to inform our members & partners on the what, the where and the how. This session gave us just that.

Hans Tubbax from the Thomas More Hogeschool first shared his views on the more theoretical and technical aspects, then 7 companies presented cases from their business environments.

The examples from many different industries touched on advantages of IoT for both suppliers and customers: connecting "everything" to the internet can deliver interesting data for companies who deploy applications. These data can be used to indicate the customer's wishes and expectations and can help to incrementally improve customer experience, both in B2B and B2C scenarios. Another way of using the collected data lies in identifying the state of connected devices and their need for corrective or preventive maintenance. This in turn helps in setting up new business scenarios, where a customer does not own a tool or piece of equipment, but instead purchases a service.

This session was the first of three IoT sessions this year. If you want to learn more on IoT & how it can help your business grow then be sure to subscribe to the second (Creating IoT Product-Service-Systems) and third IoT session (IoT in practice). 

Relive the session!
