IDC projects that the market for connected objects will be worth $7 trillion by 2020 – and in view of this, Sopra Steria, a European IT consultancy firm, has launched a comprehensive solution that provides general support for connected objects.
The company’s offering facilitates digital transformation in order to boost growth and ensure implementation of agile business models. Guillaume Roy, IoT digital practice director at Sopra Steria, said: “With the launch of IoT Line, a first in the area of the Internet of Things, our aim is to accelerate our clients' project production cycles to less than 12 months.”
IoT Line comprises three parts – consulting, technology and rollout. Consulting concerns deployment of adapted business models, training and support during periods of transformation. Technology covers expertise – in embedded intelligence, sensors, connectivity, platforms – along with other features such as mobility, the cloud, data management and cybersecurity. Rollout concerns expertise across the IoT value chain, from design to launch.
Sopra Steria already possesses a track record of enhancing processes for important industrial accounts in areas such as cost reduction, improved security, improved maintenance, risk prevention and quality at work. The company looks to function as an IoT integrator, connecting facets such as business model, technological bricks and arrangement of participants in collaboration within the national ecosystem, which includes start-ups, technology suppliers, software publishers, research centres, schools, universities and regional Sopra Steria teams.
