THE INTERNET OF THINGS – LIVING IN AN ALWAYS CONNECTED WORLD

Not a day goes by without reading breathless headlines predicting the magnitude and the future impact of the Internet of Things (IoT).  The IoT promises a brave new world in which all devices communicate with one another seamlessly, offering unpresented efficiency, productivity, innovation, convenience and well-being.

THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION AND MOBILITY

In this keynote Joe we will not only reveal the current state of cutting-edge mobility technology and explore the factors that will drive their adoption, but he will also look at the disruptive technical and legal considerations that might get in the way of the vision and building trust with key stakeholders: consumers, regulators, insurers and investors.

THE OUTCOME ECONOMY

Welcome to the “outcome economy” — where companies create value not just by selling products and services, but by delivering complete solutions that produce quantifiable business outcomes. Buyers in the outcome economy aren’t looking to buy products, but rather an iron-clad guarantee of an outcome.

INNOVATION IN AN ALWAYS CONNECTED WORLD

The Internet of Things (IoT) offers an exciting vision in which practically all devices are connected and communicate with one another seamlessly. In the future, most products will perform their intended task in the physical world, but, thanks the IoT, will also have a “digital twin” operating in the cloud and “experiencing” the lifecycle of the product.

The Outcome Economy

Everything and everyone is becoming interconnected. The Internet of Things is transforming the ways in which new value is being created in practically every business and every workplace in the Industrial IoT, roles must change and rules are meant to be broken. This is where the value is. This is the new opportunity.

This book looks beyond the simple concept of connectivity to delve into the specific ways in which new value is being created, and how that will alter the most basic economics of how we live, work, and play.

The book offers a concrete understanding of how the Industrial Internet of Things is transforming business models by taking the quantum leap from companies that make promises about products to companies that promise outcomes; a collaborative and interconnected world in which success hinges on how well you can integrate your organization as part of a complex ecosystem that will align itself around outcomes and innovation.
