How to prepare for the Internet of Everything

As the transition from IOT to IOE becomes more dramatic, Aglaia Kong says business leaders need to focus on the opportunities offered to their specific industry sector in order to shape, and ultimately to fully automate, user experiences.

“Once you get things connected together, you are naturally going to gather a lot of data and that’s when the transition happens from IOT to IOE.”

Once you get things connected together, you are naturally going to gather a lot of data and that’s when the transition happens from IOT to IOE, data analytics and then process automation, and then people experience.

So for business leader I think depending on the verticals they’re in, what they really need to be mindful about is what is coming, if you look at IOT or IOE, at the conceptual level, the architecture is the same.

However the true challenges of IOE really fall into three categories.

One is how do you connect things because each one of the things talk different protocols.

So the connectivity and how you connect sensors becomes very vertical specific; that’s kind of challenge number one.

Then challenge number two is the type of problem you are solving for that particular vertical is also very different.

The third thing is really it needs to be vertical specific is that the business model is very different for the type of vertical you go after, because the value proposition you bring to that vertical is different.

You know, the business model for manufacturing is clear. If you help them to prevent downtime.

However, the business model is not necessarily clear when you go talk to the city mayor because you keep saying “I’m going to make your people happy”. Great – but who’s going to pay, right, for the infrastructure?

So that’s why, you know, we always have to get down to the vertical specific depending on what industry they are in.
