IoT Indonesia is held annually in Jakarta, Indonesia and brings together the telecommunications companies, government agencies and current/potential enterprise users of IoT. It represents the largest event in the annual calendar of Asia IoT Business Platform. The largest market in Southeast Asia, Indonesia is a country which offers immense potential for IoT development in several sectors.
This will be the fourth year running that the event will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia and will take place on 7 – 8 August 2017 at JW Marriott Jakarta.
With the world’s fourth largest population of 235 million and number of mobile subscriptions of 297 million, the market potential for IoT in Indonesia is massive. Looking at the various industries in Indonesia, by 2030, the automotive sector is estimated to have 46 million vehicles on the street; the utility sector will see 83 million homes for the 300-million population, while 57 million Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) will contribute to the economic growth.
This year’s edition of AIBP will focus on SMEs, which contribute 57.9% of the country’s GDP. Local SMEs are not only competing domestically, but also regionally. The potential to grow further lies in developing stronger internet skills and increasing broadband among the SME economy. Over one-third of Indonesian SMEs are offline, whose revenue could be boosted by acquiring Internet capabilities, which could increase Indonesia’s GDP growth by as much as 2% per annum.
While IoT has grown tremendously over the past few years – being heralded as the “fourth industrial revolution” that can change the way businesses and organisations operate, IoT adoption remains conservative. Concerns over cost effectiveness, interoperability and security loom over the decision-making process, creating the needs for businesses to seek thought leadership, use cases, and consultative strategic planning to better understand how to adopt IoT successfully. With this in mind, AIBP 2017 will also focus on concrete discussions between IoT solution providers and end users to address key challenges and pain points in implementing IoT in businesses.
Topics covered in the program include the use of IoT in public services, manufacturing, agriculture, transport and logistics, and many other verticals. Sustainability and efficiency are key themes in IoT conversations, especially in smart cities and productivity. From smart metering and smart grids that aim to improve energy consciousness and efficiency in supply and consumption to automation and monitoring, IoT continues to disrupt business operations positively to enhance corporate sustainability and efficiency.
This is a dynamic industry platform that should not be missed if you want to understand more about enterprise digital transformation and IoT in Indonesia, understand businesses’ needs and challenges in adopting IoT, and establish important connections that will benefit you and your organisation in many ways.
