Day 1 - 13 November 2019
Application of IoT – Enterprise: Chair’s Welcome and Opening Remarks
Here from a senior industry analyst on the current landscape of IoT-enabled enterprise solutions and how this is set to change.
Increased End-to-End Visibility and Asset Management using the IoT
The supply chain industry has been revolutionised with the introduction of the IoT which provides detailed insight into every process as within this industry, even the smallest inefficiency can cost time and money. This talk will look at how end-to-end control and true asset management can be integrated into every business and how this technology is moving forward
Panel: Smart Logistics and the Connected Fleet
- What is key when looking for the kind of IoT solution to fit your businesses asset management needs?
- Business without borders – how partnerships within this industry can enable an effective connectivity network to enable this enhanced technology
- What benefits does IoT provide for fleet services; from traceable cargo to time efficiency
- Looking to the future, how will this technology develop from predictive to proactive?
Remote monitoring solutions for the smart enterprise
Remote monitoring provides an advantage to enterprises that was once never possible – The use of smart equipment and sensors provides businesses with numerous options in terms of what they wish to monitor, including asset performance and response rate to machine issues/ failures. This system allows for the remote analysis of the enterprise like never before. This talk will expand on these key points and look deeper at how remote monitoring is helping businesses have an unparalleled insight into their enterprise.
Barriers to adoption – what are the biggest challenges?
There are numerous barriers for companies to integrate IoT technology into their established systems, examples of this include use of highly granular data, data protection and security, connection standards and products sold. In an industry that’s trying to develop and implement new technology, tensions from established operators are paramount, as new business models turn in favour of innovative technology and are data heavy. What is the solution to this divide and can IoT platforms help operators adopt and implement the new technology into their legacy equipment?
The smart workplace of the future
In the future, working places will not be confined to offices, with IoT and connected technologies allowing more of us to work remotely. Which technologies will have the most impact here? What is holding this movement out of the office back currently? Or will the concept of working change altogether, moving towards sharing and gig economies and outcome-based working?
The Potential of the Connected Fleet to transform Business Models
What are the real advantages of the connected fleet? This talk will look at the insights that are gained from the introduction of IoT enabled Fleet management systems. In addition, it will focus on how the industry is evolving right from insurance companies using a pay per use model to the sharing economy within the automotive sector.
Smart Grids and Distributed Energy Supplies
- Discussing the benefits of IoT applied energy technology on managing energy usage, cost efficiency, increase resiliency and environmental sustainability
- What are the benefits of implementing smart grids for distributed energy resources such as those generating, storing and using energy? What role does supply and demand play within smart and micro-grids and how are these demands managed?
- Using smart grids to track and automate distribution of energy across these resources and increase operational efficiency
- How can smart grids help improve the safety of power distribution – Predictive maintenance and beyond
Panel: Smart Buildings & Lighting
- What changes a building from being simply connected to smart automation?
- How smart buildings and smart lighting lead to better energy efficiency
- Office buildings spend 29% of it’s operating costs on energy, exceeding upwards of $30,000, while households spend roughly $1,945. Can smart lighting reduce costs and provide insights for a more sustainable future?
- Beyond buildings, how smart lighting is used for smart cities and other markets
Smart Sensors for Buildings – Utilising the Data
- Buildings are talking to us – Utilising the real-time data can help businesses progress in digitalisation, efficiency, facility management and cost
- The benefits of large-scale networking within buildings
- How sensors can be used to detect issues/ changes in processes ahead of these becoming problems
- It’s not a one size fits all rule – standalone devices vs integrated infrastructure appliances
- Is the upfront cost worth it or is money spent elsewhere more beneficial?
Utility Management from Building Automation
Building managers and construction companies are aiming to move with the development of new technology, but old systems still in place are making this complicated. Many buildings currently host traditional water, power and heating and ventilation systems and collect data manually, therefore not providing connected results and are not able to share this data. This session will focus on solutions to gain inter-connectivity of digital and legacy equipment and building management systems (BMS). What automation will work for you and how to make informed decisions based on the data collected.
