Jaa

The Industrial Internet Consortium ® (IIC™), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), announced that it is presenting an IoT Energy & Efficiency Forum to highlight IIC members’ activities in the energy sector as well as the efficiencies brought about by IIoT. The event will take place at the Nokia Campus and Executive Experience Center (EEC) in Espoo, Finland, along with local partner, Business Finland. IIC member DIMECC is the event’s Gold Sponsor.

The forum is focused on four areas of IIoT and energy: (1) energy and utilities; (2) energy efficiency; (3) smart mobility; and (4) smart cities. Keynote topics include, “Role of Digitalization in the Energy and Industrial Revolutions,” and “How to Achieve a Truly Digital Plant / Refinery.”

“New digital technologies like blockchain, AI and new business models of platform economy will shake the foundations of the energy industry, as well as any other industry. Consumers will only pay for what they use and can sell what’s left over to other consumers. The role of a traditional energy company will turn into something totally different. Business Finland provides innovation funding, networks and export services for radical ideas and turning them into commercial global products and services. We attract international players and private investments and accelerate new digital ecosystem building – in Finland. This country is the best place to co-develop and innovate for the digital era,” says Business Finland’s Executive Director of Digital Transformation of Finnish industries Pekka Sivonen.

“IIoT is one of the main technology drivers behind new applications in the energy industry,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, IIC. “Energy efficiency is an asset all countries must develop to ensure safe, trustworthy, reliable and sustainable energy systems. Disruptive technologies are changing business models. IoT technology embedded within city infrastructure continues to change the way energy, water, lighting, heating, ventilation, maintenance and security are supplied.”

“We are delighted to host the IIC and its members at the Nokia Executive Experience Center in Espoo. We believe that as an industry we can accelerate the IoT across geographies and technologies. Through dialogue, sharing ideas and innovation we can create more sustainable, productive, and energy efficient solutions for our connected world,” said Bhaskar Gorti, president of Nokia Software.

The forum will offer presentations, case studies and technology demonstrations designed to help accelerate the adoption of the industrial internet and includes two panels: “Smart Cities, Energy Efficient Solutions,” and “Security, Data Analytics & Connectivity in the Energy Sector.”

The forum features executive speakers and panelists (in the order of the program):

Lenovo Data Center Group Delivers Broad Edge Computing Portfolio, Expands Investments in IoT22.2.2019 16:13:00Tiedote

Next week at MWC Barcelona, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will showcase continued investments in its solutions supporting IoT and edge computing as part of its IoT growth plan over the next few years. Building on the momentum of its fifth consecutive quarter of profit growth, Lenovo DCG is building a portfolio that takes infrastructure to where the data is, whether that be in the traditional data center, in the cloud or increasingly, at the edge. Today, around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. This migration is driving increased concerns around data privacy, security and regulations coupled with challenges of latency, bandwidth and downtime. Lenovo is addressing these challenges by creating a broad portfolio of edge computing offerings that address the different ways that customers want to deploy edge computing solutions for IoT use cases.
