Hyperscale and Microcare are the most important drivers for a digital economy. The focus is on digital services which are scalable while also filling in the job-to-be-done of consumers or business users in a customer-focused way. How do decision-makers look at this? Sirris spoke with Bart Steukers, Context Director at Agoria, a man with a heart for people and technology.

The lack of access to customer data should not be seen as a problem only pertaining to product manufacturers. Mainly for customers this results in several financial complications such as reactive instead of proactive maintenance, no access to future/novel product optimisations, and unavailability of customised services. The InsightProducts project supports companies to improve their product and service offering through qualitative product data acquisition and use in view of digital servitisation.

A quick look back to ‘IoT Tech Expo Europe 2019’ in Amsterdam.

The digital economy is driven by hyperscale and microcare. It is essential to offer scalable online services that take over tasks from consumers and/or business users, while also being user-friendly. We wondered how decision-makers looked at this. This is Anneleen Vens, Head of Digital Transformation at Renson speaking.

After three successful editions, a fourth edition of the ‘Fleet-based analytics for data-driven operation and maintenance optimisation’ seminar will take place on 24 September. The seminar focuses on the challenges of optimising the operation and maintenance of a fleet of machines by means of data-driven analytics and hybrid modelling strategies. In addition, a new mastercourse, ‘The opportunities and challenges of fleet-based analytics’, on 25 September will provide practical techniques for analysing fleets of machines.

To ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability in IoT systems, a number of security aspects need to be considered, in order to achieve security and privacy by design. In this second blog of a series we dig deeper in authentication and authorisation for IoT application.

Springer Nature has just published the first scientific book for which the content was entirely generated by a machine. It covers research into lithium-ion batteries.

The revenue model of digital servitisation, in which physical products are enriched with digital services, offers product builders a range of new possibilities, but also presents new challenges. On 25 June Sirris organises an inspiration workshop to provide companies that build physical products and want to explore the possibilities to take the step to smart, connected products with an overview of the inns and outs of digital servitisation and to give them the tools to get started.
