The client had limited or inefficient integration of its data sources, which made it difficult to see patients through a longitudinal lens. The client was, however, uniquely positioned to leverage the expansive patient data contained within its network of care, and set out to do so in 2012. Specifically, they wanted to improve the outcomes of patients with Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) through improved care management with goals of reducing readmission rates, better managing patient cholesterol levels, and better managing patient blood pressure. Specifically, the regional healthcare provider was interested in implementing a machine learning platform, that quickly automates complex analytical processes and integrates powerful information into existing applications and portals.

Many large manufacturers in and outside Japan are competing for larger market share in the same space, expecting a growing demand for projectors in the areas of entertainment, which requires glamor and strong visual performance as well as digital signage that can attract people’s attention. “It is becoming more and more difficult to differentiate ourselves with stand-alone hardware products,” says Kazuyuki Kitagawa, Director of Service & Support at Panasonic AVC Networks. “In order for Panasonic to grow market share and overall business, it is essential for us to develop solutions that deliver significant added value.” Panasonic believes projection failure and quality deterioration should never happen. This is what and has driven them to make their projectors IoT-enabled. More specifically, Panasonic has developed a system that collects data from projectors, visualizes detailed operational statuses, and predicts issues and address them before failure occurs. Their projectors are embedded with a variety of sensors that measure power supply, voltage, video input/ output signals, intake/exhaust air temperatures, cooling fan operations, and light bulb operating time. These sensors have been used to make the projector more intelligent, automatically suspending operation when the temperature rises excessively, and automatically switching light bulbs. Although this was a great first step, Panasonic projectors were still not equipped with any capability to send the data over a network.

IOTATOI is a division of Power Agent Systems that has developed an edge server called the Universal Monitoring System (UMS). IOTATOI is using UMS as an edge tier data collector to monitor backup battery arrays in manufacturing, mines, and chemical plants. This experience with battery backups led IOTATOI to expand the system to any condition that can be monitored by sensors such as vibration, heat, temperature, and flow. IOTATOI found they needed to move from their original middleware to something that would allow greater scalability and to also present information in a much broader way allowing them to dynamically look at the information and perform benchmarking analysis, feeding the data into analytics engines and creating a much more actionable view.

Devicify required a means to quickly build "connected IoT apps” without building a connected applications platform themselves, an expensive and time consuming option.There is a need for Devicify's Connected Products Management (CPM) product to create agile development environments for both technical and business users within a given company. Johnson notes that speeding up the software development process is critical, but the larger value is in combining this with agility in adapting processes that support new business services. Johnson suggests that the resulting new strategic differentiators are what will drive business transformation within the IoT space.Business users and customers stand to gain tremendously from the effective use of Devicify CPM because the technical users are able to easily and quickly develop the software needed to create full end to end solutions. Devicify specifically engaged with ThingWorx so that these technical users could easily connect the edge devices and end points established by the connected products themselves to the business processes and applications they fed into to create the innovative business services that ultimately serve as strategic business differentiators.

An Advanced Design Project toward IoT was open to a handful ofundergraduate students in TU Darmstadt from various backgrounds. The team’s goal was to develop an IoT solution by semester’s end.Based on their personal experience and the survey results—which told them 85% of people had forgotten to pack something important on a trip—they decided to apply the IoT to the world of travel. Armed with ThingWorx and PTC University eLearning Libraries, they began to develop the project idea and scope.
