Smart Things are the 3rd Wave of the 3rd Wave
Connected Smart Things and Devices are capturing more information every day now at an exponential rate.
Hardware used to mean Dumb.
Products as a Service is now real.
This wave is transforming the Value Chain.
Is Value Created? Who owns the data?
Wearables, Implants, Sensors and Smartphones
Drive Exponential Growth of Things Connected to the Internet.
10 Years Ago computers were the primary interface to the internet. Soon enough “everything” will be connected to the Internet. These things and devices Monitor, Control, Optimize and Autonomize existing ways of doing things and create disruption in the value chain and our lives.
This disruption can be both good and bad.
We explore how to utilize these new technologies to increase competitive advantage in industry. We also seek to ensure socially responsible utilization and avoid the worst case scenario’s of the loss of privacy and security. We discuss the potential for unintended consequences. Companies can now push updates and pull data from your devices without interacting with you. What data do you own? What do they have the right to sell? In a Smart City can the government build its own profile of metadata of you?
What happens in your Personal Cloud stays in your Personal Cloud!!
OR DOES IT?
We Focus on the Key Technological Drivers of Change in the Smart City.
Our Value is in the Business Models, Technological, Architectures and Action Plans we
Identify, Nurture, and Disseminate.
