Era of Platforms
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 1:30:00 PM PDT - 3:00:00 PM PDT
The IoT revolution has already begun to transform many of our markets from a ‘sale of goods’ economy to a ‘sale of goods and services’ economy, but many of today’s businesses are still governed by a “pipeline model.” Under IoT 2.0 – or The Platform Model – intelligent and connected platforms will emerge to enable new value chains based on a platform play, or an associated ecosystem play. This platform model will allow for other ecosystem players to add and complement with their own solutions, enabling greater scalability. With so many attempting to capitalize in the vast IoT opportunity, the system designers participating in these value chains will not all be traditional embedded designers. Instead, some will be experts in application development and software design who have imaginative ideas they need to get to market quickly. Ali Sebt, President of Renesas Electronics America, will discuss how entities can adapt their business models to take advantage of IoT 2.0, stay relevant and grow. He will highlight new Automotive and Embedded IoT platforms from Renesas as examples of how forward-thinking companies can best serve customers by providing system solutions that let them focus on efficiently designing unique IoT applications.
