It’s a recurring fact that heavy industry relies on proven aging solutions and often disregards « new and hyped » technologies.  Over the past few years, IoT was considered promising in this field because it is relying on something, people that live in constrained environment know: hardware. Using this familiarity IoT entered industries by the R&D doors,...

A typical proof of concept usually covers technical feasibility of the concept within a context.  The definition of the PoC would be as trivial as the naivety of the proposer. Rarely enough the definition of the PoC is comprehensive enough to include reliability, cost, scale, security, quality of data, etc. Some other times even the...

It’s become difficult to determine the limits of privacy in an age of ever-increasing technology. We are all aware of the tug of war going on between social media companies, such as Facebook, and its users and society in general in an attempt to determine who, and under what conditions, access to users’ private information...

‘Innosportlab de Tongelreep’ uses technology to research and train professional swimmers. A research is being done on how to get the technology out of a lab and reach every swimmer. For instance, by using wearables! Bob – a colleague at Sogeti and a guest today on IoTFriday informs us about the difficulty of bringing technology...

The digital age brings more than only paper to mobile conversion. Processes are improved by digital, collecting data, using models and being predictive. Testing is a reactive activity. To become predictive we need 5 steps to create roadmap. A new book is released on the 1st of June 2018 in Utrecht, The Netherlands: “Testing in...

The simple wearables to track fitness activities are common ground nowadays. In fact shares of leading companies in this area are going down at the moment. Maybe the market is satisfied, or maybe we don’t believe in fitness trackers any more? I speak for myself that my fitness tracker goes almost unnoticed and works quite...

Systems fail, they cascade onto the next and a next. Chaos! The sheer magnitude of combinations that could go wrong and impact each other screams for the use of AI in predicting failure. Chaos prevented. Teaching an AI system to recognise faults no easy task. Domain experts are needed to show what is right and...
