Southeast Asia's Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) thought leaders will convene next month for the Asia IoT Business Platform to discuss the opportunities and challenges of IoT and M2M in Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
To be held in Jakarta, some of the listed speakers include Ririek Adriansyah, Telkomsel President Director; and Bambang Heru Tjahjono, Director General for ICT Applications at Indonesia's Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.
Targeted at local telecommunication companies, businesses and enterprises, as well as end-users across relevant verticals, this event will showcase the value and economic impact of IoT and M2M solutions, including improving private and public sector enterprise productivity, and harnessing ICT and networks to alleviate problems in dense capital cities.
For instance, Peugeot Citroen will discuss the potential of smart connected cars, while Trafiksverket will be discussing IoT-powered road use management systems to combat traffic congestion respectively, which is a huge problem in Jakarta and other SEA cities.
"Indonesia offers tremendous opportunities in terms of the scale and usage of IoT and M2M solutions, leveraging technology through key enterprise and policy decision making, leading the entire ASEAN region's transformation," said Zaf Coelho, Project Director of Asia IoT Business Platform said.
"This is a platform where Southeast Asia's leading technology decision makers convene, impacting how ASEAN will drive the uptake of smart technology solutions to alleviate business challenges and societal problems, with a tangible impact on productivity and technology growth," he added.
