ABOUT THE TOPIC: IoT & Business
In this meetup we will focus on the business side of IoT Solutions and Apps... it's about Business models and commerce systems for IoT Businesses.
It’s in the FitBit you use to track your activity. It’s in the Nest thermostat that automatically regulates your home’s temperature. It’s in LG’s new Smart ThinQ™ fridge that tracks grocery lists and meal plans, and more. Companies in various industries are gearing up for the next generation of connectivity.
So, if the Internet of Things is the future of business, what does it take to sell it?
This talk explores how businesses need to adapt their business models and commerce systems to take the full advantage of the new world of smart devices, They can achieve success by adding services, using flexible pricing models, utilizing usage data for understanding customers’ needs, building affiliate programs with cross-sell in mind, and seeing each device as an advertising platform.
