Accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things



Can you ideate, build, and deploy digital solutions rapidly and cost-efficiently in Asia?

The Internet of Things increasingly impacts product competitiveness, operational efficiency, and business model evolution. However, few multinational companies have sufficient know-how in Asia to plan effective digitalization strategies. As a result, companies typically walk one of two paths. Either they attempt to copy-paste strategies from headquarters that were designed for fundamentally different markets. Or they proceed with business as usual. It is no surprise that local competitors are taking market share in many industries.

IoT ONE guides companies through the innovation process with a hands-on approach focused on execution, not corporate presentations. Our execution-focused approach helps you to go on the offensive rather than defensive, to solidify market leadership in your key markets.

We support the deployment of digital solutions in Asia in two ways:

  • Proof of Concept - Establish the feasibility of ideas and prioritize for further development.
  • Proof of Value - Establish business value to rapidly iterate and scale.

Challenge the Status Quo

Assess where current assumptions are out of alignment with market reality and re-align business objectives.

Execute and test ideas cost effectively to reduce risk of unexpected failure prior to heavy investment.

Build a Roadmap to Scale

Develop an execution roadmap to accelerate solution development, rollout, and value creation.

Ideate and Execute

Proof of Concept reduces risk of unexpected failure for a cost-effective and time-efficient innovation process to identify and prioritize scalable ideas.

IoT ONE's Proof of Concept aims to produce a partial realization of a specific solution to facilitate a go/no-go decision by demonstrating technical feasibility and/or user acceptance of key functionality. It is narrowly defined to remove uncertainty and risk in one or more areas, and is a key milestone on the way to producing a fully functional prototype. We recommend companies execute a POC early in the solution development process to avoid unnecessary waste of time and money.

IoT ONE works between headquarters and local management to develop practical idea-to-concept strategies suited for Asian markets. Common questions that we help companies address include:

  • How does technology adoption in Asian markets different from adoption in our home market?  
  • Which technologies are feasible in Asia?
  • Which market segments and needs can we serve in Asia?
  • Which countries are best situated for initial testing of new product solutions?

Proof of Value rapidly advances winning ideas and eliminates less promising ideas using a step-wise approach, seeking to establish a foundation to create business value instead of technical feasibility.

In past decades, multinationals thrived in Asian markets due to their maturity and technical superiority. The competence gap has since shrunk. Today, local competitors have the technology and volume to compete in many markets. They also have one key advantage - speed. 

Tomorrow's market leaders will be agile and fast. When value creation was driven by hardware, it was good to be slow but steady. Products had long development times and product life cycles. Once products were launched, it was expensive and challenging to modify them. When value creation is driven by software, development times shrink from years to months. More importantly, software can be updated regularly, in real time, without disrupting operations. In this era of data-driven value creation, speed wins. 

Digital technologies require rapid ideation, validation, and iteration to remain ahead of competitors. IoT ONE provides strategic and execution capabilities; we enable speed. You will have access to the full access to our internal and external resources to provide flexible project management capacity, deep domain insight, and an ecosystem of domain experts and technology providers. 

How can we help you take the offensive in an era of digital disruption?
