Introduction to the workshop detailing objectives, plan of action and outcomes
Presentations on IoT methods and solutions to help build a common understanding and background in IoT among the participants
Exploring IoT hardware and software that align with the use cases discussed in the previous point
Hands-on activity to develop the proof of concepts that can later serve as a foundation for the proof of value development and leather full-scale implementation
Introduction to data analytics tools and visualization that will help develop the proof of value.
Discussions on how the prototype developed will integrate with existing business processes and tools. Go back to prototype building and repeat if necessary
Gathering feedback from the users on whether the prototype is useful and if it helps meet the necessary business outcomes
The developed PoV is presented to the stakeholders and a feasibility analysis is done
Discussion on the next steps for full-scale implementation, including a roadmap for its development and deployment
At both an individual and a business level, there are several benefits offered by an IoT workshop, where you will learn to design, implement and experiment with IoT until you gain mastery over how it works.
They say, ‘practice what you preach’. In an IoT workshop, you will learn how to practically implement IoT, observe its working and modify it to achieve desired results.
The participants in an IoT workshop are setting up IoT networks in real places, possibly within the business itself, and they will learn the nuances of how these interconnected devices communicate with each other and how they can solve business problems using them while developing the proof of value.
As the consultants begin implementing hardware and software in an IoT solution and establish gateways to facilitate communication, the business can also investigate the vendors and the solutions to use for a full-scale implementation, if they are already well-versed in IoT
When the business and the consultants work together to develop a proof of value, the business can estimate the costs of a full-scale implementation and whether the whole endeavor makes sense or not.
We learn by doing, but in doing we also become more creative. The IoT workshop will serve as an outlet for the employee’s creativity and innovation. They can experiment with the latest technologies that together with IoT will help bolster their innovative capabilities.
Workshops allow people to collaborate with one another, and help form multi-disciplinary teams. It also allows people to network with each other and with experts in the IoT sector and learn a lot from them, getting better at what they are doing too.
Benefit from our 19 years of IoT experience. We conduct IoT workshops that address your specific business use cases.
A wide range of applications are enabled, reducing costs, enhancing efficiency and improving overall operations. Let us look at some industrial use cases now.
Precision farming is now a very popular buzzword in agriculture. It involves the use of technology such as IoT to revolutionize various aspects of agriculture, beginning with planting and ending with harvesting. For instance, IoT provides real-time soil monitoring, helping to observe the nutrient content, PH and other properties of the soil over time, helping in its preservation and effective use for farming. IoT workshops can also train learners on how to use GPS-fitted tractors and other equipment, operating them remotely through IoT, allowing to reduce labor use in farming and making farmers more independent.
Monitoring of machine health is made possible with IoT. By attaching IoT sensors to machinery in Internet of Things workshops, it is possible to identify any limitations which may be caused by an actual malfunctioning of parts. This allows learners to then intervene and set things right before an actual failure. It can help with maintenance too by continuously monitoring the functioning and in turn reduce any downtime that may result from failure. IoT workshops in manufacturing also help manufacturers identify factors that affect product yield and quality. The manufacturing process can then be suitably modified to achieve more favorable outcomes.
Fleet management is another advantage of IoT. IoT workshops help train transport companies on how to track vehicles in real-time using GPS and telematics devices, allowing the optimizing of routes and their own delivery or pickup schedules. IoT workshops can also help train transport companies track driver behavior, helping to track speeding and rash driving, and corrective measures can be taken to maintain safety. In addition, training in the concept of geofencing allows to fix boundaries around any asset, which helps trigger an alarm if an asset crosses these boundaries, stopping any theft or unauthorized usage before it happens.
Internet of Things workshops provide hands-on experience to learners and enable them to manage smart grids more effectively. They also learn how to conduct energy consumption monitoring, another crucial aspect of any business and something which businesses spend a lot of money perfecting so that they can cut costs and achieve sustainability goals. IoT workshops also help train people in how to distribute the energy effectively, ensuring that every place gets an adequate amount of energy as per their needs.
IoT sensors can track the movement of customers within a store, allowing them to understand what options the customer considers before the final purchase, the exact route they take to purchase and what products they like or dislike. This can allow retail stores to provide a more personalized shopping experience to each customer. In other words, it takes the guesswork out of retail. A seamless checkout process can also be enabled, which allows customers to scan the products, pay and then exit the process without having to go through a cashier.
IoT workshops also demonstrate to businesses in healthcare how remote patient monitoring can help collect patient data such as vital signs to help treat complications. IoT workshops can also train healthcare businesses to gauge medical adherence of patients in a patient support program, helping to introduce nurses or other helping factors to ensure it. An IoT workshop can also train a healthcare provider on how to add sensors to various parts of the body in the elderly to prevent falls and other accidents before they happen.
