Internet of Things (IoT)

The digital revolution has already demolished conventional business models, creating a new competitive environment. ABeam Consulting has developed a diverse range of solutions based on industry and business process knowledge and experience gained from IoT implementation and operation, case studies, manufacturing industry transformation and supply chain refinement. We apply those solutions to help companies grappling with digital-related problems apply digital technology to transform their businesses.

IoT Utilization to Achieve a Digital Value Chain

In the digital age, every business process is affected by digitalization, requiring new business process transformation. ABeam Consulting defines the digitization of all business processes (the whole value chain) as the “digital value chain.” We work to achieve by IoT implementation.

Approach to IoT Utilization

Approaches to IoT utilization are diverse, varying by industry and business field. By improving visibility in the production workplace, added value can be provided to expand sales. Data links to other business fields can generate new services. And business models that transform monetization methods and enable deployment of new business operations can emerge. There is also an urgent need for organizational and corporate decision-making, which individual departments find difficult, but can be achieved through IoT utilization.

Operational Scenarios & Scope of Implementation for IoT Utilization

By clarifying the IoT operational scenario and scope of implementation for each industry and business field, and each IoT project objective, we can establish concrete details for a given IoT effort for successful execution.
