Semicon west monetizing the internet of things


Published on

Everyone wants the Internet of Things to be huge, but so far, nobody has cracked the code. In this presentation, I argue that our failure to focus on driving ROI from assets and creating real value for consumers and enterprises is at fault and suggest some ways we can do better.

  1. Monetizing The Internet Of Things: A Convenient How Not To Guide Paul R Brody Prepared for Semicon West July 2015
  2. The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed. William Gibson
  3. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Images creative commons, flickr We started making devices digital because they’re cheaper that way VS 3
  4. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Image from, Panasonic The result was a world of smart things that weren’t especially clever at all 4
  5. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Things have kept getting smarter, but we don’t seem to be very happy with how they’re turning out. 5 ➡ Lots of smart appliances now available ➡ Very few stand-out success stories
  6. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Three substantial problems have delayed the arrival of a more useful Internet of Things 6 Failing the jobs to be done test No meaningful ROI No credible level of security or privacy
  7. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP The biggest failure in the Internet has been the failure to focus and improve upon the “job to be done” by the device 7 Features of a new $1,700 “Smart” Washing Machine: •Start, stop, and check status remotely •Notification when laundry cycle is complete •Assign tasks to other family members •Remind you to do the washing
  8. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP ROI is important, and costs are too high while returns are far too low to justify replacing existing capital equipment 8 Case Examples: ROI on Smart Sensor Use Cases $0 $75 $150 $225 $300 Maintenance Energy Tag Cost Return Maintenance • 5% annual chance of mechanical problem • Average truck roll costs $100, 1.5 per repair • Smart systems eliminate some repairs and reduce average truck rolls total to 1.0/repair • $25 tag cost on BOM, 10% annual ROI Energy • $250 for a smart thermostat at home • Average of $141/year in savings reported for Nest thermostat users • 56% annual ROI on average
  9. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP As for security and privacy: it’s a disaster and there are no participants left who have any credibility in this space 9 •Security is an after- thought in most smart product design today •The foundations of many of these designs are dated to begin with •Feature bloat adds bugs and security risks.

  13. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP It’s now cheaper to make things smart than it is to make them stupid. 13 Powerful System on Chip costs are dropping so quickly, they are converging with traditional embedded chip costs: Non-Recurring Engineering Cost for Customized Embedded Chips Shift to SOC with software customization here Illustrative: As SOCs drop in price, customization will shift to software, not hardware Time + + + + Embedded Unit Cost Average Embedded Cost Average SOC Cost At higher end of the market, this shift has already started: These high powered SOC chips can run the full Block-Chain stack including doing transaction processing (mining).

  15. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Alongside the revolution in hardware, a revolution in software is brewing at the same time: BitCoin 15 Secure Transparent Open
  16. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP BitCoin is the re-invention of the most basic workload in the world of modern computing: transaction processing. 16 The Block Chain CICS in 1966
  17. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP As a transaction processing engines go, the BlockChain is a terrible design and horribly inefficient. 17 Slow Redundant Wasteful
  18. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Why use the Block Chain? In a word: trust. 
 You don’t need it. 18
  19. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP The core functionality of BitCoin, known as the BlockChain is now being re-purposed into all kinds of applications. 19 Application Development Environments Marketplace Infrastructure Systems of Record Distributed Social Networks
  20. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Modern Era At the intersection of these two trends is a new world order. 20 Expensive Computing Post-Modern Era Free Computing High Trust Environment Centralized Internet Low Trust Environment Distributed Internet
  21. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP There are two key take-aways from the intersection of these technologies 21 1 No business case is required to make devices smart 2 The Cloud applications required to integrate & manage these devices are, if properly architected, free
  22. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP Smart devices will connect assets to marketplaces and help us make better use of what we’ve already got. 22 Typical Productive Asset Utilization Levels 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% Law nm ow er D ishw asher C ar O ffice Taxi Airplane 60% 50% 20% 4%4%1% In commercial real estate alone, the opportunity is enormous: 50% Properties used IoT systems to allocate and manage space instead of long term leases.

  25. © 2015 Ernst & Young LLP The rise of IoT will very likely upset the balance in the semiconductor industry 25 Era of embedded computing is over. The new data center is everywhere. Security through transparency. Entirely new customer base. Life cycles are going to get longer.
