 Title of presentation:
Technology inspiring a connected life –
the internet of things and services


 Name of presenter:
Stefan Ferber

Director Partner Networks and Communities
Bosch Software Innovations GmbH

 Abstract:
Predicted by technology evangelists and market researchers as well, the Internet of Things and
Services will have large impact on us, society, and systems. In the coming years, more and more
intelligent systems will be able to use the internet to communicate automatically with each other. In
2020 the resulting Internet of Things and Services will interconnect more than 50 billion components
– from tiny sensors, smart phones, PCs, to high performance computers. At Bosch Software
Innovations, the Internet of Things & Services, Web 3.0, m2m, or cyber physical systems are much
more than just buzzwords. It is a chance and a challenge to bring the internet and physical world
closer to each other.
We understand the Internet of Things & Services along four dimensions:
Internet Technology:
The internet and its technology are vivid drivers offering an established platform for interconnecting
billion things – from tiny sensors, smart phones, PCs, to high performance computers. Open Source
communities scale and accelerate the technology development and the implementation of open
standards. Therefore, business moves to system and software platforms in the internet.
Business Innovation:
Weaving smart things, enterprises, and people leads to innovation in services and business models.
The spirit of internet business models is turning up in traditional product business (e.g. pay-per-use
for car sharing).
Market Disruptions:
Different industries meet the first time as the Internet of Things & Services crosscuts some of today’s
Bosch Software Innovations
separate markets (e.g. Electric Vehicle Roaming with Energy and Mobility companies). The players
of these markets compete and cooperate in new segments leading to business ecosystems that are
linked to social communities (e.g. Google+) and open source communities (e.g. Eclipse).
Peoples Competencies:
Software and system competencies linked to deep domain knowledge and enlightened with creativity
are the core for innovation in technology and business.
Many applications in different domains will be coming up and connected: Mobility, Energy, Building,
Industry, and Health. This all leads to a real connected life.
