Successful IoT-driven transformations have a common theme: collaboration through partnerships. Whether it is developing plans for enhanced products or services, aligning IT with business and analytics, selecting the right future proofed technology, or running a comprehensive IoT integration and deployment program, most businesses cannot achieve the desired results, on time, within budget, using existing internal resources. Delivering on the promise of an end-to-end IoT enabled solution is challenging, as demonstrated by the 60 percent of IoT projects not achieving success in 2017. At Assess-IoT, successful IoT-based business transformations are achieved by bringing together the right expertise to minimize risk and maximize business outcomes. As a principal IoT solution partner, the firm delivers a unique combination of technical and business expertise that delivers superior planning and seamless execution of IoT deployments.
Assess-IoT’s premiere team of technical and business experts has a proven track record of delivering results. The team helps in identifying and understanding the clients’ needs. They ensure that the technical solutions are always aligned to identified desired business outcomes. Below is the conversation that we had with Peter Hunt, CEO of Assess- IoT to comprehend the firm’s unique strategy to establish a collaborative and comprehensive IoT plan and help its customers oversee its implementation.
On the challenges that companies face in the IoT solutions space.
In many companies, the IT function has been optimized to deliver enterprise-level applications, driven by a hosted data center, enabling them to automate governance and achieve optimized performance. Generally, most CIOs and their teams have not had a chance to develop the organizational, technical, and business integration skills that are essential to delivering successful IoT projects. This is especially true when it comes to real-time sensor data, low power networks, edge computing and analytics. This not only involves the development of new hardware, firmware, and software but also the integration and support of these subsystems when multiple suppliers are involved.
Assess-IoT is well prepared to help CIOs influence the roadmaps of new products and services and architect an optimal IoT solution, specify the behavior of each subsystem and plan for integration, where necessary, with other legacy systems. In addition, the firm can help deploy and maintain the solution, support in-house functions, and monitor the systems behavior for CIOs and business leaders while enhancing their ability to continue delivering on existing traditional IT metrics.
We are positioned to help client companies deliver on the business performance improvements promised by IoT-driven digital transformation
How is Assess-IoT planning to leverage upcoming trends?
At Assess-IoT, we see significant advances in all facets of IoT from sensors, wireless communications, software, analytics, etc. We expect the rate of innovation to continue to accelerate going forward. A 360-degree view of the entire IoT technology stack confirms that IoT systems are becoming increasingly complex. Tracking new trends and designing future-proof IoT solutions is often very challenging for companies. This is where Assess-IoT delivers value for its clients by leveraging their extensive experience and strategic partner relationships to take advantage of the latest advances in all dimensions of the IoT EcoSystem.
With a carefully selected development partner network, we are positioned to help client companies deliver on the business performance improvements promised by IoT-driven digital transformation. One major trend in the industry is to provide software platforms that allow IoT components to integrate quickly. However, there are many options and we are here to help clients make the right long-term choices.
Tell us about Assess-IoT’s focused and adaptable assessment methodology.
Assess-IoT’s engagement model is designed to adapt to the unique needs of every customer. We recognize that there will be differences in business needs, technology strategies, implementation timelines, and resource models. Our approach brings the best of breed IoT solutions together to meet the specific requirements of our clients. We do not use a “cookie cutter” model for IoT development assessments, rather we use our adaptable assessment methodology to tailor the engagement to precisely meet our customers needs.
Before launching Assess-IoT as a best-of-breed IoT consulting company in 2017, the team evaluated the most critical services needed and the best methods of developing customized solutions for these services. One dimension of our engagement is to evaluate the potential organization impacts of the IoT solution. Understanding that change management across the enterprise may be required depending on the specific solution. Many companies fail in their IoT efforts because they underestimate the complexity of the project and they don’t gain the full buy-in of the organization.
We are looking to help companies use technology to advance their businesses. Our team of experts has worked at the highest levels across the technology industry. Assess-IoT team members have senior level corporate experience as Line of Business Senior Executives, CIOs, CTOs, Sr. Fellows, and Senior Technology Directors. Our ability to adapt to different challenges is derived from the team’s extensive experience across a wide array of IoT technologies, business models, and organizational designs.
What lies in the future for Asses-IoT?
Assess-IoT will continue to build partnerships, not only for ideation and implementation but also for the integration and long-term maintenance of IoT deployments. We are developing a managed services capability to oversee field services, technology refreshes, and software updates. These systems are likely to be running in the field for five to ten years or longer and we intend to be the solution provider for this often-overlooked aspect of IoT programs.
