Recognising the opportunities of the IoT

Billions of machines, devices, components, sensors and actuators are already connected to the Internet today. The data and insights that can be derived from such connections offer tremendous opportunities for the most varied business models.

However, there is also a danger of becoming swallowed up by the limitless abundance of data generated by the IoT and Industry 4.0. To prevent this from happening, bbv’s experts work with you to identify the likely potential, develop the corresponding IoT strategy and implement this in collaboration with you – from the networking of IoT devices through to connection to the cloud.

Innovation workshops

From idea to business case. The innovation workshops provide a forum for us to develop business ideas with you relating to technological and methodological trend topics.

IoT innovation workshop

We convert ideas into reality

As a pioneer in the Swiss cloud and IoT market, bbv is the ideal partner when it comes to converting promising ideas into reality.

Our experts cover the full range in this respect: This includes connecting devices by means of device connectivity and system connectivity, machine-to-machine communication in a host of different environments, storing data in data lakes and evaluating telemetry data as well as predictive maintenance, edge computing and process automation.

Smart connections

The Internet of Things is a prime example of an interdisciplinary domain, where the proper mix of experience, process and mindset is much more than a sum of individual parts.

Using ingenious concepts, our experts take a collection of elements and combine them into a rounded whole. The recipe for success is the core expertise of our specialists who have the requisite knowledge of Microsoft Azure, Big Data, Edge Computing, IoT Security and Embedded Software Engineering to implement Internet-of-Things strategies professionally.
