Modern products seamlessly integrate into digital ecosystems and value chains.
In this process of integration, the potential for value creation and customer benefits increasingly shifts from the physical device to digital services.
Manufacturers must exploit these opportunities with their own services, otherwise they risk marginalization by dominant platform providers.
In this scenario, companies often face the question:
What is the smartest way to connect my smart products worldwide?
Utilizing the Internet of Things enables device manufacturers to transform themselves into providers of smart products and digital services.
This progressive way of thinking allows manufacturers with national and worldwide distribution networks to design business models that create long-term competitive advantages.
Two main challenges need to be addressed:
To enable productivity and operational efficiency, Internet of Things solutions are being adopted at increasing rates. Not only built on a foundation of reliability and security but also easy to connect and manage at scale.
Smart Devices entail higher complexity and more demanding requirements for Lifecycle management and therefore require a more profound IoT infrastructure.
Most crucial – update functionality!
Both challenges, Product Discovery for new services as well as establishing a profound IoT infrastructure usually have a tightening frame – in time, in budget, in quality.
None of it must be neglected, but as a manufacturer you must concentrate on creating the competitive advantage.
Nevertheless, the basic infrastructure is the fundament for success and more than a necessary chore.
