Piers Hogarth-Scott, KPMG Australia's National IoT Practice Leader, interviews established and emerging players at the IoT Innovation Expo about the innovative solutions being applied to solve real world problems facing the power, water and utilities sector.
The Internet of Things (IoT) landscape continues to evolve at pace, unlocking opportunities to transform operational efficiency, automate processes, improve customer experience and deliver economic outcomes across multiple domains including ‘smart’ power, water and utilities. This emerging IoT technology ecosystem is both complex and fast-moving. Understanding the players and the relevant offerings in the market can prove challenging.
To help de-mystify this challenge, KPMG hosted an IoT Innovation Expo in our Sydney Innovation Lab featuring 20 exhibitors focused on ‘smart’ power, water and utilities, and an opening Ministerial Keynote by The Hon. Don Harwin MLC, NSW Minister for Resources, Minister for Energy and Utilities, Minister for the Arts, and Vice-President of the Executive Council, along with presentations from a number of industry leaders.
Overall, the event was designed to help accelerate the adoption of IoT by connecting the demand and supply ecosystem together to help shape new opportunities, foster best practice, increase confidence and propel the market.
In this video, Piers Hogarth-Scott speaks to presenters and exhibitors about the range of IoT innovations showcased which provided attendees the opportunity to go ‘hands-on’ to see real-life solutions in action. These emerging and established solution providers form an important part of the rich ecosystem enabling Australia to tap into the economic opportunity presented by IoT.
