IoT/AI – The next big thing.


Use of IoT and AI is continuously increasing. Driven by new technologies in data transmission, sensor technology, the cloud and applications, demand and interest among businesses is soaring. Some people say that IoT/AI will see the dawn of a new industrial revolution.

IoT is now being used pretty much everywhere with buzzwords like Smart Home, Smart City, Smart Retail, Industry 4.0, Smart Health Care, Digital Supply Chain and Smart Factory all the norm in some industries, but uses and benefits differ depending on the segment.

There is enormous potential behind IoT, which is why decision-makers are analysing how the technology could be implemented in their own companies.
Bechtle Schweiz AG is responding to this development by expanding its portfolio of services.

The principles of IoT.

The principle behind IoT/AI is that real things and information about a location or state are transmitted using suitable technology into the cloud.

The data is saved in the cloud where it can be accessed for further processing. Then, at application level, the data generated by IoT is either used as a basis for monitoring and alarms or even to generate predictions. But that’s not the end of the story. The use of machine learning, combining IoT with ERP or CRM systems, and leveraging IoT-generated data as a component of blockchain projects is on the rise.

For many customers, two main arguments for IoT are better, location-agnostic transparency and faster, event-based processes, from which many use cases can be derived.

The idea is simple, but most customers don’t have any ideas about how they can benefit from this technology. Even those customers, who already have some experience of IoT, are faced with considerable challenges and often feel overwhelmed with the implementation.

The challenge of IoT.


IoT Life Cycle.

Companies not only have to tackle the technical side, but also organisational aspects. When the business demands something, IT has to react.

Inter-disciplinary expertise in sensor technology, edge processing, wireless technology and the cloud is required and in may cases IoT technology is uncharted territory for IT departments.

At the end of the day, IoT solutions have to be integrated into existing IT landscapes and security guaranteed. Furthermore, using IoT means getting to grips with each stage of the IoT lifecycle.
