IoT Symposium 2014

The M2M/IoT revolution isn’t coming. It’s already here

Watch the key notes

Did you know that more than 31.000* new devices became connected in the Nordic countries yesterday? Machines are talking to each other, and the number of connections is growing with every minute. For example, Anticimex, Swedens leading pest control and hygiene company, is now using TeliaSonera M2M solutions to monitor mouse traps and thereby lower the use of pesticides.

Karl Bjurström, Head of Digital Strategy and Transformation, Capgemini Consulting Swefi Capgemini Consulting conducted an extensive research of IoT products and services of over 100 leading companies across North America and Europe. We see that many companies struggle to unleash the potential value from IoT services, and are not prepared with the key capabilities to succeed. IoT leads to a separation of physical/HW products, and services on-top enabled by IoT. Barriers to entry gets lowered and news agile entrants will try to capture the new value. If traditional companies don’t transform, they will end up in a commodity position and loose the customer ownership and intimacy.

Johan Falk, Head of Intel IoT Ignition Centre Stockholm, Intel Corporation IoT/ICT will be essential in transforming cities and business towards increased efficiency, customer and people value and achieving key sustainability objectives. This will be enabled by a horizontal, secure IT approach breaking the silos. Success will be achieved by agile and close collaboration between end-users, solution providers and technology providers. Intel and partners will provide a showcase.
