Internet of Things (#IoT) based integrated use cases need to solve business problems

September 15th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

A recent Forbes article “Don’t underestimate the impact of Internet of Things” did a great job explaining the benefits of IoT. Many people think IoT is also about any consumer device that connects to the internet. Basic consumer devices are simple to understand but IoT is larger and needs to be especially to achieve the growth analysts expect.

The critical element is use cases that integrate devices into a complete solution. The thing that gets me excited about IoT is the fact that it crosses all industries and can integrate everything around us together. Sensors that monitor how we walk, the temperature inside a building, maintenance of medical devices all can be converted into a complete system. The Forbes article gives a few of these use cases and links to even more. Understanding what use cases are useful and which aren’t is critical.

Last week another Forbes article “Putting Business First in the Internet of Things” came out highlighting the need to put business first when building IoT solutions. The article makes the point that the Internet grew rapidly because it allowed people worldwide to connect much more easily but you still needed relevant scenarios for people to want to connect.

#IoT is having the same effect on devices. The trick here will be making the solutions that occur be relevant to the end business needs. The article states “Our customers in the IoT market do not buy components“ confirms De La Mora of Cisco, “they buy solutions tied to business outcomes and results.” The issue is the solutions are quite complex and many times not even envisioned by the producer of the original product.

So to achieve this result many companies are simply building IoT networking platforms to allow partners to develop their own solutions to offer to consumers.

In both articles one of the key points was figuring out a way to monetize the solution is important to keep investment on IoT into the future and achieve a good return on investment (#ROI).

Without monetization how do you know the effort was worth the expense and whether to keep the development effort going? The typical solution mentioned is charging based on usage, i.e. data that passes through a network or time spent using software. There are many business models which can be helpful depending on the specific solution being provided.

September 15th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Cognizant will buy the health care software company TriZetto for $2.7 billion in cash.

Privately held TriZetto Corp. is based in Englewood, Colorado. The company and its 3,700 workers will join Cognizant’s existing health care information technology business, the company said Monday.

The information technology consulting and outsourcing company is expecting the acquisition to significantly accelerate its market position. Health care currently makes up about 26 percent of Cognizant’s revenue.

Company President Gordon Coburn said that the deal will provide an opportunity to integrate across traditional IT services; high-growth businesses such as management consulting, business process services and IT infrastructure services and emerging delivery models.

The Teaneck company plans to finance the transaction with available cash and debt. It is expected to close in the fourth quarter and immediately add to earnings.

Shares of Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. rose $1.33, or 3 percent, to $46.09 in premarket trading.

MORS Software 2014 Liquidity Risk Management Survey highlights the regulatory pressure upon banks to complete implementation of intra-day monitoring

September 15th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

MORS Software today published the results of the Annual Liquidity Risk Management Survey it completed in July 2014. The survey results show that regulatory pressure is the foremost driver for banks to complete their intra-day liquidity risk projects and that these are still a work in progress.

Key findings of the survey:

Regulatory compliance ranks first in importance as a motivation for completing implementation of intra-day liquidity risk monitoring, ahead of cost effectiveness and internal steering
Development of intra-day liquidity risk monitoring takes time, and remains a work in progress at the majority of banks
Regulatory pressure is also the primary driver for stress testing

The MORS Software 2014 Liquidity Risk Management Survey was conducted between 7 May and 10 July, 2014. Eighty-one banking professionals participated from the UK, Continental Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Australia. A total of twenty-six countries were represented.

The reporting requirements of the Basel III framework for intra-day liquidity monitoring tools enter into force on 1st January 2015, alongside those of the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR). The majority of banks surveyed now rank regulatory compliance as the foremost driver for completion of their intra-day liquidity risk projects, in contrast to previous surveys, which found that business benefits, such as efficient use of liquidity and reduction of related costs ranked higher in importance than regulatory concerns. The regulatory pressure that the survey now reveals is consistent with the finding that the majority of banks surveyed had not yet completed their intra-day liquidity risk projects as of the summer of 2014.

“The survey findings illustrate the current situation of banks,” explains Mika Mustakallio, MORS Software CEO. “Achieving regulatory compliance is a top priority, and is becoming increasingly urgent as we approach year-end. However, banks do also recognise and appreciate the business benefits generated by effective intra-day liquidity risk monitoring, such as cost effectiveness and improved internal steering. Once regulatory demands are met, the importance of forecasting and the need to actively manage and steer the metrics will emerge.”
