Want to adopt IoT? Be ready for change management!

by

You are probably already convinced in the benefits you may reap by integrating an IoT solution for your business. You’ve probably already read and heard enough that IoT is the future – it saves costs, increases the revenue, optimized processes and opens a whole world of new possibilities.

It is now time to realize, however, that IoT does not only mean ‘new technologies’. It is a new way of making business, a new way of thinking.

One of the common problems faced by enthusiastic managers seeking IndigoVerge for IoT consultancy is: How to ‘sell’ that IoT vision to the other C-level managers and how to overcome the resistance to the changes it will bring?

Usually the biggest and most loudly spoken resistance comes from the most profitable departments in a company, those with good financial results. They have really low motivation for change, claiming that “If something is working well, there is no need to change it’’. At the same time, other departments fighting for a portion of the budget are pushing to have their new and better idea implemented.

What should be the management approach in such a situation?

Highlights from my IoT business session at the recent Sofia IoT Summit

by

I have recently announced my participation in the first Internet of Things summit in Bulgaria, organized by the Software University and Microsoft Bulgaria. My session on the ‘IoT adoption process from business perspective‘ was part of the IoT business line of sessions (there was a tech line as well).

My session – I am truly happy about that – got a good number of attendees and, judging by the post-session meetings and conversations, sharing my business experience in this domain did provoked a lot of interest.

Since some of my international contacts asked me about the event and were sorry they couldn’t attend, in this post I’ll be sharing some of the key points from my session. Truly hope those would help initiate a conversation on the topic.

Implementing smart IoT-based street lights – how smart is smart enough?

by

How smart should a smart IoT-based LED lighting be?
This was the key question we had to answer when we started work on a recent IoT consulting project – an IoT solution responsible for managing the street LED lighting. The result we were looking to achieve was, of course, increased efficiency and reduced energy and maintenance costs, considering the longer life and much reduced energy consumption of LED-based lighting.

During the discussions with our client, we put on the table three possible levels of optimizations. Each of those had to be evaluated based on costs and value added. All three optimizations had to be put into a financial model so we could figure out the financial reasoning behind each stage of the project.

IndigoVerge will participate in Internet of Things Bulgaria Summit 2016

by

IndigoVerge will participate in Internet of Things Bulgaria Summit 2016, a one-day event focused entirely on Internet of Things.

Ivan Dragoev, CEO of IndigoVerge has been invited as a speaker and will lead a 45 minute session with topic “Internet of Things adoption process from business perspective”. The event will take place on 29 September, at Software University, Sofia.

The event has two tracks – Tech and Business. Ivan Dragoev’s session is a part of the business track and will begin at 11:45. He will talk about his experience at IndigoVerge helping clients understand, plan and adopt IoT-based solutions. Adoption of a new technology is always risky and building solutions on top of Azure IoT Hub, Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Active Directory and Azure App Service can help to significantly reduce that risk, shorten the development cycle and reduce time and costs. Based on real world scenarios from IndigoVerge IoT consulting and development experience, this session will give managers an idea how to handle the IoT adoption process for their companies.

Hydrogen Vehicles vs. Electric Vehicles

by

VideoToday I watched a very interesting video about the efficiency and the environmental impact of both the Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicles (HFCV) and Electric Vehicles (EV). The presenter is Tony Seba – a Lecturer in Entrepreneurship, Disruption and Clean Energy at Stanford University. He managed to outline the main differences between both technologies in a very comprehensive and clear way.
