The Tinder of IoT: Proof of Value

All organisations approaching the adoption of IoT need to establish a clear “proof of value”. This goes beyond the traditional business case to ensure that all participants in the project have a credible understanding of IoT. The way in which you establish the right business relationships is just as important in IoT as great technology.

The Tinder of IoT: Proof of Value


Presenter: Renald Gallis, BP Ecosystem & Marketing


Description: Building proof of value is the final frontier in what some call the wild west of The Internet of Things (IoT).  The technology of the IoT is well established now and engineers can connect any system together to work functionally. However, many IoT pilot projects fail to make it through to mainstream adoption. In this presentation, Renald Gallis discusses how to develop “proof of value” to help take your idea from concept to commercial success.

Proof of value starts with the design process and building the business case, but has a much stronger focus on how to scale up design concepts into large scale industrial settings. Organisations looking to innovate their businesses, need to develop the maturity of their approach to IoT by understanding the technology, the options and compromises. Above all they need to foster strong relationships with large players to ensure the longevity of any solutions.

As a network operator, Thinxtra often find itself match-making business relationships between the many and disparate organisations the IoT space, a process it calls the Tinder of IoT – and the key to making these relationships work is to have a robust proof of value.

About the presenter: Renald Gallis has 25 years of senior management experience in different continents, leading teams from diverse departments and multi-cultural backgrounds. Over the past four years he has focused IoT/M2M markets including smart cities, smart industry and smart agriculture, including helping Thinxtra become a network operator building nationwide Internet of Things in Australia and New Zealand using Sigfox technology. 

When: 12pm (NSW time) 3 April 2018. The presentation will last 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes question time.
