To do this, having precisely identified the customer journey of your digital customer allows you a complete approach, for which tools such as the customer journey map is key.

7. FINTECH

It is a nascent industry in which companies use technology to provide financial services in an efficient, agile, comfortable and reliable way. They aim to expand bank penetration.

8. DATA ANALYSIS

It is the process by which raw data is analyzed in order to answer questions and reach practical conclusions that support an organization’s decision-making. Using predictive models and AI tools, we can run simulations that are based on real scenarios and information. Thanks to this, we obtain data on contexts that would be difficult, very expensive or impossible to test in physical environments. Big data is big money. 

9. SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

Software development is generally considered part of the agile family of approaches, and is often used in combination with one or more other methods. Software on a smart device can also be upgraded to include better connectivity. In addition to its development, there is likely to be more outsourcing also. 

10. ADVANCED MANUFACTURING OR INDUSTRY 4.0

It refers to a new business model in which the interconnection of integrated ICT systems both with each other and with the internet is key. The adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and the training of personnel will be the greatest opportunities that industries, companies and governments will have in the next decade. Therefore, 2022 represents the next step to embrace technological transformation as an indispensable element for competitiveness, resilience, and development.

Beyond 2022: The Future of IoT Device Management

Article | May 17, 2022

Understanding the Impact of IoT Device Management The Internet of Things (IoT) industry is growing exponentially, with the potential to become limitless. The current range of existing and potential Internet of Things devices is in itself quite enormous. This also gives businesses an opportunity to pay more attention to the newest technologies. In ascenario with rapidly increasing numbers of devices, manual management of devices becomes close to impossible, laced with human errors. Moreover, keeping an eye on hundreds of devices one by one to make sure they work the way they should is not an easy task to undertake. Businesses at the outset of IoT adoption are most often unaware of why they require a device management platform.This is precisely why a device management platform is so crucial.It can effectively connect toall of theconnected devices and get the required information from them in the right way. An effective device management platform can turn out to be the vital aspect that will define the success of any small or large IoT implementation project. Such a platform would ideally allow organizations to manage their internet-connected devices remotely. "If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!" — Brendan O'Brien, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, Aria Systems. Why Do Organizations Need an IoT Device Management Platform? An effective IoT device management platform offers simplified provisioning, centralized management, and real-time insights into all existing devices and integrations to help organizations stay on top of their deployment. Device management platforms help you keep a check on the growing number of devices while keeping errors at bay, with your growing number of connected devices. It would ensure that you have a clear dashboard and an alerting system as an effective supporting system. In addition, getting involved with IoT device management platforms can also help you in a number of other ways. It acceleratestime-to-market and helps reduce costs The management platform enables secure device on and offboarding It also streamlines network monitoring and troubleshooting IoT simplifies deployment and management of downstream applications It mitigates security risks Evaluating the Future of IoT Device Management It is predicted that the world will have more than 100 billion IoT-connected devices by 2050. The future potential of the IoT is limitless, and the potential is not about enabling billions of devices together but leveraging the enormous volumes of actionable data thatcan automate diverse business processes. Critical Aspects of the IoT's Future The critical aspects of IoT predictionsare fast impacting several categories all across the globe, ranging from consumer to industrial. IoT Companies and a Circular Economy IoT firms are assisting in the development of a future with less waste, more energy efficiency, and increased personal autonomy. A connected device system, on the other hand, must be feedback-rich and responsive, and activities must be linked via data in order to be sustainable. Ways to achieve a responsive and actionable system include: Extending the use cycle with predictive maintenance. Increasing utilization and reducing unplanned downtime. Looping the asset for reuse, remanufacture, or recycle. Common Billing and Revenue Challenges We are currently moving toward a future where everything from cars to household machines and home security will be sold by manufacturers as subscription services. This will result in organizations selling IoT subscriptions looking for new ways to managebilling and revenue for their business model. Service diversity Data monetization Complex stakeholder network Cost management Cohesive IoT Deployment Strategy for the C-suite With the future of IoTon its way to becoming the most disruptive innovation and compelling technology that will facilitate better services to customers, from a support perspective, being connected remotely with customers' devices offers considerable advantages to service organizations. However, this is also not a new concept; earlier, large organizations and data storage companies were remotely connected to their client systems using dedicated telecommunications links before the commercialization of the internet. Using the estimates of the exponential rise in connected devices, the IoT offers a wide array of opportunities to effectively improve the industry, such as: Consumer activity tracking includes in-store applications that assess traffic flow and purchase choices. Manufacturing, storage, distribution, and retail operations have been optimized to increase productivity and reduce waste. Energy, inventory, and fleet assets are all used more efficiently. Improved situational awareness, such as vehicle warning systems Enhanced decision-making, such as medical equipment that notifies doctorswhen a patient's health changes. Self-parking and self-driving automobiles are examples of autonomous systems. An interesting case study with Michelin showed that they were adding sensors to tires to better understand wear over time. This data is important for clients to know when to rotate or replace tires which saves them money and enhances safety. However, this also implies Michelin can move away from selling tires and instead lease them. Because sensor data will teach the corporation how to maintain the tires, Michelin now has a new economic incentive to have tires last as long as feasible. IoT device management plays a crucial role in effectively accumulating and processing data from all the widely distributed IoT sensors. Conclusion As more sectors discover the advantages linked machines can bring to their operations, IoT enterprises have a bright future ahead of them. Newer services are steadily being pushed out on top of IoT infrastructure in industries ranging from healthcare to retail, telecommunications, and even finance.
