Big Ships and Small Speedboats: How Companies Function and Grow

Executive insights from 1NCE CTO Younes Allaki Turning a big ship takes time. If a cargo vessel veers off in the wrong direction, bringing it back in line requires a complex sequence of procedures. By contrast, a speedboat glides nimbly atop the waves, able to reverse course all but instantaneously with a single pair of hands on the wheel. Like watercraft, companies separate into two groups. On the one hand, “big ships” wield substantial influence in their markets because of their large profits and high visibility. Their stability gains them consumer trust. Their history, as well as the depth of talent…

“Micro-Asset Tracking”: How new connectivity options are transforming the asset tracking landscape

Asset tracking is certainly one of the most well-established applications on the IoT market. So far, however, IoT solutions have mainly been used to monitor high valuable goods or critical supply chains. But as prices for sensors and other hardware elements continue to fall, companies are increasingly using them to track and trace less valuable objects such as cylinders or cable drums. But there’s still a big hurdle to overcome on the way to what I call ‘micro-asset tracking’ – and that’s the price of connectivity. Beware the TCO Especially in the transport and logistics sector there is…

Commonsense Connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Executive insights from 1NCE CSO Alexander Bufalino Numerous challenges lie along the path from the idea of the Internet of Things (IoT) to its reality at scale.

The First Sensible Route to IoT Connectivity

Executive insights from 1NCE CSO Alexander Bufalino The Internet of Things (IoT) relies on three pillars of technology: hardware, software and connectivity. Hardware provides the functionality to support IoT enablement and connectivity. Software computes and visualizes incoming data, making the information digestible. These two aspects of the IoT have existed in an optimized, industrial-grade, stable, high-quality, affordable form for decades. However, what continues to prevent the IoT from growing to its full potential stems from the way IoT devices have acquired their connectivity. Until now, IoT connectivity has originated from a slew of huge, powerful network operators whose main…
