Organisations all over the world are looking to use new and existing endpoints to create revolutionary business processes and realise cost savings or revenue from IoT projects. Therefore, it is more important than ever for these projects to succeed and progress from the sandbox and into production, without a hitch. In this presentation, we’ll look at these three principals, and how Siemens have succeeded with their IoT program.

Rapid deployment, open and connected architecture and a secure, compliant environment, are the three best practice principals at the foundation of all successful IoT projects.

In this presentation we will explore:

  • How Siemens Mindsphere have developed a successful IoT platform for their customers
  • Why each of these 3 principals is important
  • How the combination of these principals can help monetize your IoT initiatives

  • Fully embracing connected technologies can enable industries to optimize productivity and meet global challenges. A prime example of where this has happened is within agriculture.
  • Agriculture is leveraging IoT across an interconnected system of many different products – from GPS to mobile apps to sensors to self-driving – to optimize decision-making and elevate every stage of farming from planting to harvest, maximizing time, costs, labor and efficiency.
  • Pushing technology even further, the agriculture industry is now embracing AI and ML to optimize the quality of each individual seed’s growth and maximizing resources.
  • As a result, farmers are finding new ways to make good farms even better and meet their own business goals as they grow enough food to meet global demand from a growing population that the Global Harvest Initiative predicts will reach nearly 10 billion by 2050.
  • This session will bring to life this journey and show how other industries can learn from the agriculture industry.

View Case Study: Industrial Innovation in Medical Gases

View Full Info

Linde Healthcare launched a new digital valve for hospital gas cylinders. The valve informed clinicians the amount of time that a cylinder had left to deliver gas. Rather than using a new cylinder in case it ran out, the existing inventory could be used more efficiently. Customers were somewhat sceptical of the full value, until… This case study shows how a lean start-up approach can be used to identify incremental business value within an Industrial healthcare environment, and deliver a tracking and monitoring solution customers value.

4 Takeaway Bullet Points (these describe what the visitor will learn from attending the session):

  • In the Internet of Things, technology is rarely the challenge
  • Drive innovation by business value, not by technology
  • Assess business value by working with real users
  • Develop iteratively and incrementally – lean innovation!

The IoT hype has been deafening – billions of connected devices, petabytes of generated data, trillions of economic opportunity ahead.  All true, of course, but in reality the business value of IoT has been incremental so far. By connecting devices with each other and networks, industry has improved processes, cut costs, and gained notable efficiencies. However, this is just the low-hanging fruit – IoT’s full potential to transform businesses has yet to be realized.  Until now.

In this keynote, the New York Times bestselling author, IoT pioneer and Cisco innovation executive will explain how industry can leapfrog from incremental to transformational business value through the convergence of today’s newest IoT technologies. When combined with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Fog Computing (distributed cloud), Blockchain, and Analytics, IoT can deliver new value propositions, revenue streams, and business models. These technologies are empowering IoT to reach its long-predicted tipping point.

The speaker has more than two decades of experience co-developing connected solutions with partners and customers in a wide variety of markets. He will provide not only a visionary picture of IoT’s current and future state, but also pragmatic guidelines on how to jumpstart your IoT journey and reach your loftiest goals. He will draw heavily on his just-released, “Building the Internet of Things – a Project Workbook,” a companion to his bestseller of the same name, revealing step-by-step action plans for IoT success.
