Getting to Net Zero

Getting to Net Zero with the Industrial Internet of Things and Digital Twins

Watch Rob Tiffany’s session at the IoT in Oil and Gas Conference 2022 in Houston.

If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it, or improve it.” This variation on a famous quote by management guru Peter Drucker has been a driving force in managing people and processes in the most successful companies over the last century. When it comes to everything else, you need IoT to measure it and digital twins to manage and improve it. The drive toward net-zero emissions is an all-hands-on-deck imperative requiring new levels of innovation throughout the oil and gas industry.

IoT Day Slam 21: Securing IoT Data at the Edge

Security concerns are listed as one of the top blockers to IoT adoption and devices continue to be the weakest link in the IoT ecosystem.

Most customers are relying on IoT #data platforms to provide some level of protection. IoT device management platforms are underutilized with many legacy devices incapable of being patched or updated. In this session, I describe a different method of delivering IoT security that leverages networks and edge computing.

Techonomy: Automation In Telecommunications Transformation

At CDX Accelerate, Sam Lakkundi & Rob Tiffany took a deep dive into a number of topics ranging from Hyperautomation, the current state of IoT, 5G, and the autonomous Digital enterprise.

Applications at the Edge with The Hive

Our friends Gartner predict that by 2025, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge.

It is important for everyone to understand what kind of applications are more critical that require access to real-time data to unlock the insights for significant business benefits. Check out this insightful, on-demand video where Edge Computing leaders Robert High, ShiSh Shridhar, Sastry Malladi, Philippe Cases and I take you on an Edge Application deep-dive.

IoT Solutions World Congress: Using Connected Intelligence To Create a More Sustainable World

Our expert panel explored how connected intelligence solutions could positively impact and transform communities and countries in need.

Join Stephanie Atkinson, Bill Schmarzo, Rob Tiffany and host Scott MacKenzie for an enlightening discussion on how we might create a more sustainable world through connected solutions.

IoT Solutions World Congress: Disposable Identity and Digital Twins

With the world rapidly shifting from analog to digital, innovators representing the Next Generation Internet initiative convened at Digital Summit 2020 to discuss moving from centralized identities to decentralization.

Join Petros Kavassalis (UAEGAN), Rob Tiffany (Ericsson), Gael Blondelle (Eclipse Foundation), Michele Nati (IOTA), and moderator Rob van Kranenburg for an engaging discussion.

Capacity Europe: IoT – Finding its feet in a 5G world

Increased demand from consumers and enterprises and the availability of more affordable devices, is driving the adoption of 5G and the Internet of Things IoT.

As 5G rollouts begin in earnest, its impact on IoT will be gradual. As IoT truly discovers its position within the telecoms space, and adoption incrementally increases, the experts try to establish its long term value proposition.

IoT Slam 2020 Session: Tackling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with IoT and Analytics

To achieve the SDG goals, I believe thoughtfully capturing data about the world around us will make the invisible, visible. The unknown will become known. The remote, will become local.

It all starts with connecting people, machines, and environmental systems to facilitate communication and the sharing of knowledge. Our ability to digitize and analyze the planet and its ecosystems will help us solve the world’s most challenging problems and achieve many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Moab Foundation is committed to doing its part by building a sustainable earth using connected intelligence.

ZEDEDA: Digital Twin and AR/VR

At the ZEDEDA Transform 2020 event, I was joined by Richard Soley from OMGEdward Wood from Dispersive Networks, Inc., and Mike Pantaleano from Rockwell Automation where we discussed key Digital Twin considerations and use cases ranging from IIoT to AR to VR.

Important insights that we’re happy to share with everyone. What made it even better was that I was connected into this virtual event from my happy place, Moab, Utah.

IoT Beyond the Hype with Leaders from the Industry

Back in 2015, McKinsey & Company estimated the IoT market had the potential to create between $4 – $11 trillion in value. Today’s perspective shows us we are dramatically short of those predictions.

Wienke Giezeman, CEO and Co-Founder @ The Things Industries, moderates this panel of IoT leaders to find out what went wrong and where we go from here. Panelists include:

  • Ferry Grijpink, Snr. Partner @ McKinsey & Company
  • Rob Tiffany, VP & Head of IoT Strategy @ Ericsson | Exec Director @ Moab Foundation
  • Sam George, Corporate Vice President of Azure IoT @ Microsoft
  • Alistair Fulton, General Manager, Wireless (LoRa) & Sensing Business @ Semtech
  • Pilgrim Beart, CEO @ DevicePilot
  • Wilfried Dron, CEO @ Wisebatt

MIT Connected Things 2020

I was honored to speak at the MIT Connected Things 2020 virtual conference. The event brought together industry leaders from Ericsson IoT, Forrester, MIT, Vizio, and many more to discuss the convergence of IoT and AI.

We weren’t at the MIT Media Lab this time around, so we did a virtual WFH Edition. I delivered a keynote on how Digital Twins live at the intersection of IoT and AI. I hope you enjoy it.

The Anatomy Of A Digital Twin

IoT Day Slam 2020: The Anatomy of a Digital Twin

Digital Twins provide a digital representation of physical objects such as people, machines, and environmental systems. Due to their capabilities, digital twins are often found at the heart of many IoT platforms.

Rob peels back the onion on this powerful technology to show you what they can do and how they can deliver value to your organization.
