THE Asia IoT Business Platform series will be returning to Southeast Asia for the fourth consecutive year. The programmes, which are organised by Industry Platform Pte. Ltd, will take place in major cities across the region, including Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Jakarta, in July and August.
The programmes will continue to facilitate the digital transformation of enterprises and organisations in Southeast Asia. It will also have an additional focus on addressing challenges and issues that organisations face in adopting and implementing Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The programmes will involve Government officials, senior business leaders in the IoT and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sectors, as well as local enterprises that are looking to explore business growth and improved business efficiency with IoT.
A recent annual survey conducted by Asia IoT Business Platform on local enterprises in ASEAN shows that more than 70% of local enterprises and organisations are currently in the process of exploring or finding possible IoT solutions to be deployed or implemented. However, only 7% of them report benefitting from any IoT implementation. Yet, this is still an improvement from last year where only 4% reported benefitting from their IoT implementation. These enterprises and organisations cite cost, legacy systems, and complexity as the top three concerns in adopting IoT.
The Asia IoT Business Platform series across ASEAN will feature a line-up of speakers comprising IT leaders from local enterprises such as Sampoerna Strategic (Indonesia), Garuda Indonesia, Bank of Thailand, Charoen Pokphand (Thailand), Petronas (Malaysia), Tenaga Nasional Bhd (Malaysia), Philippine Ports Authority, Metro Cebu Development and Coordinating Board (Philippines), and many more.
