Welcome to the Sogeti Internet of Things Knowledge Bank. We have gathered a series of publications to inspire you and your business.
Things: Internet of Business Opportunities deals with the THINGS tipping point. Connected things offer new opportunities to combat waste in the broadest sense of the term. This waste occurs among all parties: clients, suppliers, governmental bodies, service providers and the manufacturing industry. Applying digital things, sensors, actuators, apps and SMACT demands a certain mindset as well as concrete actions to optimize your process and event chains, and to translate surprising new opportunities into new products and services.
We are offering a look into the latest phase of the post PC era; where the fighting flares up for the new form factor, where the foundation is laid of new ways of communication between man and computer, where Bring Your Own Wearable Device (BYOWD) constitutes a challenge for organizations and the Systems of Engagement will develop their empathic ability to a high extent. In the next decade Personal Computing will become really personal: inside, on and around the person with attention for the context of the individual.
This third report focuses on how the fourth stage of the Industrial Revolution is upon us due to the far reaching integration of Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT). This creates completely new opportunities as a result of new combinations of mental, physical and mechanical work by interne, sensors and embedded systems.
In this report VINT explores how and how quickly new technologies will develop in the urban environment, from the perspective of the most-discussed concepts in the world of smart cities: Cities in a Box, Senseable Cities and Cities as a Platform.
The report provides an analysis of how this is already becoming a reality for retailers and presents what companies and organisations of all trades could learn from the on going convergence of bricks and clicks.
This report follows upon its successful fourfold series on the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet (of Things:IIoT). Both flavors are “two of a kind”, transforming the ways in which enterprises operate, collaborate and engage with customers. In this report, the focus is on Sogeti’s vision and client experience and opportunities in industrial and consumer markets, and everything in between: from turbines to toothbrushes.
This book gives you insight into testing an IoT solution. With a layered IoT model as basis, five clear steps are defined to implement the IoT test strategy for your solution. The book hands you the building blocks supported by examples in order to fulfil your IoT test strategy.
After Mobile, Big Data and the Internet of Things, Machine Intelligence (MI) is The Next Big Thing. Machine Intelligence is the accelerator of these predecessors. With an impending breakthrough of Machine Intelligence this report focuses the interesting question what change will Machine Intelligence bring? In a series of reports on MI, Sogeti’s trend watchers explore the potential impact, starting with a first report giving an executive introduction to Machine Intelligence.
During the F8 developers’ congress on 12 April 2016, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, disclosed that he was routinely using ‘bots’ – smart software applications – on Facebook Messenger. Apart from friends and family, we can now also use this platform to have conversations with artificial ‘friends’. Many people may still find it difficult to conceptualize ‘brand as a friend’, but the underlying idea is perfectly clear: Facebook aims to reap the fruits of the popularity of messaging by allowing bots to be implemented on the platform.
This third SogetiLabs report in a series of four on the topic of Machine Intelligence, addresses the fear of Artificial Intelligence and how organizations should handle it. We are on the threshold of an extraordinary development that makes the automation heart beat faster. Recent announcements by both Facebook and tech pioneer Elon Musk to build brain interfaces are great examples. But together with the expanding possibilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI), emotions run higher and higher. A new report from SogetiLabs 'The Frankenstein Factor: the Anatomy of Fear of AI' recommends taking these emotions seriously and pleads for a therapeutic approach. A focus on IT efficiency and effectiveness should be accompanied by a focus on human existence.
