    How IoT enables new customer-centric business models

    It's been nearly 10 years since Forrester ushered in “The Age of the Customer”. In this era, customers have been armed with more information than ever, and companies have responded by offering more customer-centric products and services.

    Without change management, IoT has no chance

    Change management is particularly important for IoT initiatives because the Internet of Things affects many different areas of the company— if not all of them. The more complex the project, the more departments that need to be involved and the more employees you need to include to ensure long-term success. In short: the complexity of change correlates with the requirements of…

    5 key success factors for an IoT project

    IoT projects fail for a variety of reasons. But we often don’t talk about why IoT projects succeed! That all changed at the Cumulocity IUG 2022 meeting as Philipp Mayer, Managing Director of codestryke, shared his IoT project experience with the audience on the positive note we’ve all been missing. It’s, therefore, critical to reiterate some of his points below…

    4 steps to IoT value

    For equipment makers, the value of building smart connected products is clear: IoT helps you gain insights into how your products are used, predict when maintenance is needed, and boost machine performance. You realize a great physical product is no longer enough—instead, ‘as-a-service’ business models help you stay closer to customers and gain a competitive advantage by creating new revenue…

    Three ways IoT helps manage remote assets

    Operating fine-tuned machines located in harsh, remote environments is not for the faint-hearted, but the Internet of Things (IoT) can make it easier. Wind power is a great example of this. Imagine giant turbines sitting offshore. Every day there are potential hazards – wind, waves, heat, cold. Hardware can be damaged, sensitive electronics destroyed, resulting in customers being deprived of…

    For successful edge IoT projects, buy-and-build

    A customer for a new IoT project said to me: “Jürgen, we know exactly what won’t work.” Obviously, his past experiences with IoT hadn’t always been positive. Unfortunately, he’s not alone. Many companies say that their IoT projects aren’t going as hoped or planned. This is unfortunate and, most of all, largely unnecessary. What’s going wrong with so many projects?…

    From the cloud to thin edge: Why an open approach helps

    As the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) grows, the rising number of connected devices and equipment generate an ever-accelerating amount of data – challenging centralized cloud computing strategies. The IIoT is a tremendous success story: Over half of all companies have already implemented or are in the process of realizing at least one IoT project. Most of them started with…

    Winning strategies for IIoT start-ups

    Start-ups clamoring to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) space are finding it a challenge to differentiate themselves in a market with hundreds of competitors entering the market every year. There’s good reason start-ups are flocking to IIoT; it is transformational across industries and enables new business models. IIoT reduces errors and downtime, supercharges efficiency, stops people from getting hurt…

    OEE: If you measure it, success will come

    Small- to mid-sized manufacturers and smart machine makers need a way to better measure overall equipment effectiveness without the expense and effort of expensive manufacturing execution systems (MES). According to Peter Drucker’s theory, measuring results is the only way to manage and improve your product. But of all the measurements, stats, KPIs and data that you can collect, only a portion of it is useful. So,…

    Can you prove ROI from your IoT projects?

    With Internet of Things (IoT) projects, proving return on investment (ROI) quickly is critical. And it is one of the hardest things to achieve. When surveyed by Beecham Research, 89% of 25,000 IoT adopters said that achieving ROI was a significant challenge and a huge 75% of all IoT projects were not considered successful.   At Software AG, we see more and more customers…
