Post Event

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a global industry phenomenon, which is the intelligent networked connections between people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable to fuel faster innovation, improve customer experiences and satisfaction, and automate business processes. At the annual Cisco Internet of Things World Forums (IoTWF) held previously at Barcelona (2013) and Chicago (2014); 2,300 delegates, 44 sponsors and more than 200 speakers globally, came together to accelerate the market adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) by sharing best practices and innovations.

This year on 24 March 2015, we will leverage the same mission to host a regional IoT Forum in Singapore, where Senior Delegates from Oil & Gas, Utilities and Manufacturing Companies from ASEAN and Japan will get together to discuss opportunities, as companies are looking into the flexibility, scalability, security, availability, and connectivity that the IoT is demanding.


Cisco predicts that the value creation at stake will be $14.4 trillion for companies and industries worldwide over the next 10 years (2013-2022), with Manufacturing contributing to 25% of this value creation.

The development and adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is a critical element of smarter manufacturing. Though manufacturing companies have been implementing sensors and computerized automation for decades, the sensors - Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and PC-based controllers and management systems are largely disconnected from IT and operational systems. These systems are organized in a hierarchical fashion within individual data silos and often lack connections to internal systems. There are several reasons for this legacy structure, including significant security issues, to differ from the open, highly connected IP network structures that play such a large role in the value propositions of IoT. While the transition to more open network architectures and data sharing of IoT poses challenges in manufacturing and industrial markets, the combination of IoT, Big Data, and M2M optimization will bring profound opportunities.

Topic: Business Model Innovation: Introduction to Implementation
Introduction to the talk

In the smart phone business, how did Nokia overtake Motorola, Apple overtake Nokia, Samsung overtake Apple and now the Chinese manufacturer such as XiaoMi coming out of the blue to steal the market share of Samsung? Then lately, we see the comeback of Apple with the iPhone 6. Less than twenty years ago, these internet and technology companies were unknowns - Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Alibaba, Samsung etc. Today, the market capitalisation of these companies are even higher than many established traditional companies.

How did all these companies suddenly mushroom from nowhere to become global leaders within such a short time? It is the use of business model innovation. The critical success factor is not merely what business model innovations to adopt but also the right strategies and tactics as well as swift executions. This talk will reveal the secrets behind the successful introduction and implementation of business model innovation of many of these companies. And how the small companies can overtake the big.

Cisco projects $880 million annual benefit for a typical Oil and Gas company in ASEAN region. The oil and gas industry has been working toward the digital oil field of the future, with the goal of being able to monitor and manage in real time all operational activities along the entire oil value chain. With a standard IP networking solution, companies can now begin to implement this vision by focusing on the “first mile,” which is where the oil wells and other assets of the exploration and production (E&P) companies are.

Cisco projects $21 million worth of value creation in the electric utility sector just in ASEAN region alone. To tap this value, Utilities would need to transform. Transition means change, and change is often perceived as a smooth evolution of the current situation. We believe the Utility industry transition is by far more substantial than most industry players are ready to acknowledge. As a consequence, strategic moves need to be more fundamental than simply adapting the business and operating model of today. Considering the case of a (distribution) grid operator, we provide examples for new value-creation opportunities and survival strategies for Utilities in order to open to bolder moves in the market.

Remember the dotcom bubble? It started with the emergence of the World Wide Web and ended with the collapse of many web-based companies that had reached excessive valuation. Along the way, this era generated massive innovation, economic growth, and wealth for a lucky few. It also restructured a number of industries, including telecommunications, retail, and entertainment. It built the foundation for the connected world we live in today. Companies such as Google and Facebook and the dominance of social media would not have been possible without the dotcom bubble. The smart grid has now been around for a few years and offers real possibility for sustainability-minded utilities but has yet to generate the level of innovation or economic activity of the dotcom era. Has it been more hot air than substance, and, more important, how can we drive more economic opportunities? What parallels can we draw from the dotcom era that can help us?

First Generation AMI systems did two things very well, measured and communicated. While this was a great achievement for the technology of 2010, neither the networks nor the devices were "smart" by today's standards. Technology advances over the past serveral years now offer utilities the ability to unleash more value from their smart metering investment, making it the cornerstone of a truly smart grid. Topics covered will include developing truly ubiquitous "go-anywhere" networks, and the business possibilities enabled by edge computing within the architecture of the Internet of Things.
