6 ways to outperform the Competition with Connected Products

September 12, 2018

With more and more organizations using the Internet of Things (IoT) to connect devices, systems, physical objects, and data, how do you ensure that your investment in connected products really does give you an edge over the competition? It appears that, despite their promise, a vast majority of IoT projects are non-starters in that they...

IoT Device Interoperability- A Need to Accelerate Innovation

July 25, 2018

Typically, an IoT system or IoT Sensor Network communication is designed using one of the popular low level standard technology like Zigbee, Bluetooth Mesh, Z-wave, WiFi, etc for devices to collaborate with each other. This has made multiple devices bound to different protocol/technology over a period. One of the current IoT challenge is to add...

While IoT technology acceptance has been strong in some market sectors and for some uses, there are several issues that are preventing a more widespread deployment for some potential uses. For instance if the use of IoT in agriculture in-field deployments (for moisture and other remote sensing needs) then the problem of providing a suitable...

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...

Did you watch the google IO and got scared of what technology is becoming? Or maybe it is just the next step in AI and tech and should we learn to use it to our advantage. To create better interfaces, for communication between people and technology and for the technology to technology communication instead of...

When you need to update 10.000 devices one by one and by hand, you will go bankrupt. The time and costs involved are too great, let alone the damage your brand will sustain. With device management a lot more insight is gained in all your IoT devices. With good device management it is possible to...

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...
