Q4: Which Industries do you think will be the most impacted by Internet of Things? #IOT #IFA2014
Paul Brody
One key hypothesis we have is that asset-intensive industries will be among the frist
Veena Pureswaran
Industries that have low levels of IT penetration
Paul Brody
starting with items like automotive, warehousing, and capital equipment
Veena Pureswaran
Industries that have not typically lent themselves well to digitization
Paul Brody
We have lots of ideas about industries that are sensitive to the price of risk and credit as well, like insurance, banking, and consumer credit
Veena Pureswaran
Industries like agriculture, transportation and logistics etc
Andrey Galitskiy
@pbrody I vote for this! Huge infrastructures (like oilfields) need a lot of control.
Paul Brody
Big infrastructure is a key target because so much of it is poorly utilized.
Paul Brody
We use cars only 9% of the day.
Veena Pureswaran
We are building an economic model to understand industry transformation by the IoT. Stay tuned for this next phase of our study!
Andrey Galitskiy
Another candidate - intelligent transportation systems - where really "real time" decision making is necessary.
Paul Brody
We only use offices about 50 hours a week - but there are 168 hours every week
Paul Brody
We think that 50 hours = 100% utilization of offices, it doesn't. It's under 33%.
Veena Pureswaran
in the newly released study ibm.biz/devicedemocr... we identify the key vectors of industry disruption...give it a read and share!

Scaling the IoT from billions to hundreds of billions of devices means executives must rethink the technology strategy, at its foundation.
Chester Karwatowski
Health Care must learn to apply #IOT with appropriate alerts and analytics
Suresh Subbanarahari
Energy and Utility is another one. One can check on Gartner report "Hype Cycle for the Internet of Things, 2014"
Chester Karwatowski
Hoping #IOT can have social impact to ensure and respond for food, water and safety ...and not just cool useless information.
Chester Karwatowski
Eventually I will want to have some services that are private...for my business, enterprise IT organization or personal life...but they need to be self service! defined by me
Paul Brody
Sure, but can you do all the programming needed? IFTTT is great, but I need more than If and then
Paul Brody
I think I need if then else and or...
Sumabala Nair
Agree. I wouldn't be comfortable not knowing who is doing what with information gleaned from my devices and behavioral patterns.
Chester Karwatowski
Our mobile phones and mobile apps are in the #IOT today...and they provide lots information... we provide that for free services
Veena Pureswaran
In our new paper ibm.biz/devicedemocr... users and devices are in control of their own privacy

Scaling the IoT from billions to hundreds of billions of devices means executives must rethink the technology strategy, at its foundation.
Chester Karwatowski
@pbrody I can't do all of the programming but there needs to be a continuum of services from self service to full services. No one person can define all of the innovations possible in the #IOT. Think #IFTTT and #Zapier, etc..for self service...
Gurvinder Ahluwalia
Software cannot "eat the world" unless it becomes essentially invisible to consumer and easier to developers.
IBM_Electronics
Q7: Making billions of devices smart seems to imply environmental problems, like increased e-waste. How will #IoT soutions address such challenges? #IFA2014
Paul Brody
Our piles of e-waste are coming from short device life cycles, as we go into #iot, we're headed for much longer lived items.
Paul Brody
Perhaps software changes will allow new features instead of having to replace whole items
Paul Brody
Devices that are good at servicing themselves may live on longer
Sumabala Nair
cradle-to-cradle - efficient life cycle management of devices. Why not make them own their recycling?
Paul Brody
And recycling laws are getting tougher too, so companies are doing a better job of making recyclable products
Andrey Galitskiy
The problem will come, for sure. Can be resolved by proper whole system informational flow design: to decide which information has to sent and when.
Veena Pureswaran
Yep mart products that recycle themselves
Gurvinder Ahluwalia
#IoT layers value on top of physical devices.
Andrey Galitskiy
Also hierarchical design can help. some information shall be processed at lover levels, not by distributing everything and everywhere.
Rami Ahola
Do you see recycling driven by consumer pull or regulatory push?
sanjay b panikkar
With an IoT barter economy, the possibility of bartering my used electronic products for my neighbor's. My old connected lawn mower for some storage in the neighbor's bicycle
sanjay b panikkar
well not necessarily electronics products, but things!
Veena Pureswaran
These same IoT devices can help us optimize and utilize energy much more effectively
Chester Karwatowski
A class of #IOT devices could have reusable designs like SIM cards or memory cards today... pull it out and reuse.
IBM_Electronics
Q5: What are thoughts on the after sales service scenario in an emerging #IoT world? Esp. given the many startups in this space. #ifa2014
Paul Brody
It's very high value, but it's not yet a reason to trade in.
Andrey Galitskiy
Flexibility and personalization. Services need to be easily adjustable to the personal needs.
Paul Brody
It's the largest incremental value case, but many devices are so reliable today, it's not going to drive the take-off
sanjay b panikkar
IMO, some of this is already happening: Emergence of alternative support centers – communities of users – working in tandem or separately from manufacturers. overall a good thing for consumers
Andrey Galitskiy
Devices are reliable, but they can not change so quickly as customer wants. Adjusting software is easier, and we can invent new ways of processing information coming from devices.
Sumabala Nair
@psanjay13 It is important that the end user gets to decide how much of 'support' he requires. The decision should rest with him, rather that someone choosing what support, when and how; and what is the tradeoff.
Veena Pureswaran
Devices will be largely capable of servicing themselves
Sumabala Nair
Tying in to the e-waste question: print the part you want rather than go out and buy a new device. Your device can tell you what needs replacing and point you to the specs. Maybe even talk to your 3d printer and get it printed!
IBM_Electronics
Q3: Is #IoT success going to be about who comes out with the better, smarter devices and UX or a battle between #cloud service providers?
Paul Brody
I firmly believe it will be about the better device not the cloud UI.
Paul Brody
Great devices create value on their own.
Sumabala Nair
@pbrody And would become better, more effective players in the bigger IoT ecosystem.
Andrey Galitskiy
from my experience - it should be rather "turn key solution" - combination of great devices + real time analytic placed on cloud + business model which creates a value for customers
Gurvinder Ahluwalia
Its about the knitting across devices. The cloud is an equal citizen in the IoT ecosystem. #IFA2014 @IBMCloud
Gurvinder Ahluwalia
...the knitting for user experience.
Veena Pureswaran
IoT success will be about building products with functional value, enable new markets and value, and are secure, low cost and scalable.
Veena Pureswaran

Chester Karwatowski
@guriahluwalia I agree that it will be about my value from these #IOT devices...and how one devices allows an appropriate reaction/action
