I want to make my existing products connected

The Challenge

You are a successful product company with an extensive, established customer base. You understand that embracing IoT and incorporating it into current and future products will bring extra value to your current customer base and attract new market segments. However, you do not have the in-house capacity to introduce IoT. 

The Solution

First off all, it’s important to remember that when making a non-connected product connected or “smart”, the technical complexity is tremendously increased. This is true not only when building the connected product, but even more when maintaining and upgrading it.

Step 1 – Defining the Scope

We use our IoT Framework to create an overview of the scope of the connected product you wish to develop. This framework outlines 5 areas for decision for each part of the technology stack. Working through these in a structured way ensures that you will make integrated decisions that consider every part of the technology stack and reach the most optimal solution. Using the framework as a checklist allows us to identify any oversight and consult you on how to fix it.

Step 2 – Turning the Scope into a High-level Technical Architecture and Development Roadmap

Once the scope of the project is defined, we will translate it into a technical, high-level architecture and roadmap. These documents will define the realization and milestones of your product and serve as a reference for measuring progress and success. In the section “How we work” we explain more about which processes we follow, which tools we use, and how communication and roles and responsibilities are set up. 

Step 3 - Development of the Product

We begin development in an agile way, according to the roadmap and high-level architecture. We tightly monitor and control the progress of the development, the costs, estimates for outstanding tasks, the risk management and decision and change management logs. Should it be required, this enables us to adjust our plans, scope, and priorities on short notice without losing sight of the original plan.
