Episode 113

I don’t want to be accused of being a hammer but if you think about it, IoT is the tech behind digital transformation. If your definition of IoT doesn’t include data science like mine does, then the technologies at hand are IoT and analytics and AI. Industrie four-zero addresses this tech as well as the political, environmental, corporate and academic issues that pave the way.

Episode 112

By definition an ecosystem brings together multiple products in order to deliver an outcome. However, today’s IoT standards don’t go far enough enable different products to work together. Another layer is needed to ensure ecosystem products speak the same language.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with David McCall about the Open Connectivity Foundation and the codebase they provide to enable smart home products from different vendors to talk to each other – exactly what you need for any ecosystem...

No one company is big enough to provide an end-to-end industrial Internet of Things solution. Realizing this the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) was founded to bring together different solutions from different vendors to address different use cases. The end game however is not technology, but business – to understand what is needed to put together solutions that not only work well, but sell well.

Episode 99

In my view, delivering outcomes is IoT’s killer app. It requires the IoT platform, its technical underpinning, and the IoT ecosystem, its business underpinning, to come together in just the right way.

The first is an overview of outcomes, also one of the major drivers of every IoT strategy. Then a digital transformation lesson on marketing and finally, an important methodology that should always be employed when starting an IoT offering – Design-Sell-Build ...




Episode 98

Business is all about creating value and then monetizing it; and it’s no different in IoT. For companies to succeed in IoT, both value creation and value monetization must be mastered.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I share with you three lessons from the ICIP Business course. The first, an overview of the value creation framework, that walks through the four types of value creation in IoT. The next lesson is on one of the five classes of business models used in IoT – the Service business model. And the third lesson is an overview of risk management – the business counterpart to cybersecurity. This episode is a lot shorter than last week’s but packs a big punch ...




Episode 91

The thing about the GDPR, whether we like it or not, is that it’s forcing us to do the right things when it comes to sensitive data in IoT. While there’s certainly a burden to bear, following its regulations on subject’s rights is a guide book on the right way to handle consumer privacy. So use its introduction as a reason to catapult this part of your business forward.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Chris Perram about the first steps to compliance and how to take them ...




Episode 90

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is coming – whether we like it or not. Before you dismiss it as a European thing, take a second look, because on May 25, 2018, data privacy is going to change worldwide and forever. The EU is stepping up and leading the world in defining the future of data privacy.
Listen to this podcast (or read the transcript), where I speak with Rosie Burbidge about the GDPR, why it’s consequential and why it’s going to affect you ...
