? We love technology,
but will it pay our bills?
It’s Big
So many devices and so much data…
It’s Noisy
So many opinions…
It’s Confusing
So many possible decisions…
Should we
wait?
How (where)
do we get
started?
Who can really
help us?
Do we need to
start over?
What
technology do
we need?

So, where do we start now?
With Sales of course!

Where to sell?
But, Sales deals with Realities:
What are the Big Data Realities
#1 How real is the level of Integration with IoT:
Example, although SaaS is hot, how many real Application workloads are in the Cloud
“Most people are perfectly happy with their application running on their server in the company”
And what about the desktops?
How many run in your cloud?
What other Big Data Realities
#1 Level of Integration with IoT:
Example, although SaaS is hot, how many real Application workloads are in the Cloud
“Most people are perfectly happy with their application running on their server in the company”
#2 Price Reduction & Standardization
The price of Cloud and Storage is coming down. Seriously down.
“Create a long-term partnership with your customer by explaining you’ll be helping him over time”
$35 per TB month…. We can currently produce at $2 to $3 per TB per month!
Where are Big Data Opportunities?
#3 Find Your Industries and its disruptors
- Utilities Smart metering and distribution
- Insurance Behavior tracking and biometrics for auto and life product lines
- Capital Goods Factory automation, autonomous mining
- Agriculture Yield improvement
- Pharma Clinical trial monitoring
- Healthcare Leveraging of human capital and clinical trials
- Medtech Patient monitoring
- Automotive Autonomous driving, connected cars
- Transport Smarter logistics
- Consumer Wearables, extending brands’ digital ecosystems
And many more
- Retail Improved supply chain management and smart marketing
- Leisure improving customer satisfaction and cost control
- …
What about the ecosystem?
Sales Start with Realities:
What are the IoT Realities
#1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something”
“Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App or a Logarithm
to switch off the light.”
Consider #1: Although prices decline and standardization continues of components
e.g. Bluetooth chips at <$1
e.g. Processor chips at <$2
e.g. Gyroscopes & accelerometers at <$1
But, when you need a multiple of 200Bn of these???
Consider #2: Previous wave of computing (Web 2.0: social/local/mobile – SoLoMo)
e.g. Foursquare, Google, Facebook, etc.
e.g. Uber, AirBnB,
What other IoT Realities?
#1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something”
“Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App to switch off the light.”
#2 Sustainability of IoT is with companies that can translate the connectivity into an “Ongoing Service.”
“Costs of servicing, replenishing or replacing can be rolled into a regular subscription payment”
This is where you make the difference:
Creating the IoT / Big Data Ecosystem
#1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something”
“Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App to switch off the light.”
#2 Sustainability of IoT is with companies that can translate the connectivity into an “Ongoing Service.”
“Costs of servicing, replenishing or replacing can be rolled into a regular subscription payment”
#3 Long-term, using data collected through a pervasive network of gadgets to make the world better
“So, technology will fade away from viewing (e.g. Apps, web interfaces). It’ll become invisible once it understands the user’s preferences”
Infrastructure and the value chain of the IoT industry still needs to be
assembled. We are far off the returns from the IoT to happen!!!
It is your job to create the unique Ecosystem to help you sell
IoT and Big Data Ecosystems are invented
as we speak. Sales processes are:
So, what to look for? Big businesses are created
at the boundaries and edges of the market
Find disruptors, innovators and entrepreneurs that help
you design the ecosystem, while they push the edges of
the economy and the markets.
Success in our world (Digital, Internet, Connectivity) is being driven by people that are willing to work at the edge
of the economy in order to hack the system:
• E.g. taxi-industry
• E.g. hotel-industry
But, don’t start hacking yourself… The trick is to find others to break the boundaries for you!
Become their trusted partner.
Examples: Who’s at the edge today?
Let’s break the Hotel monopoly to
offer better/alternative hospitality
Let’s break the Taxi monopoly to offer
better/alternative transportation
Brian Chesky Travis Kalanick
Who did break the boundaries:
Learn from Web 1.0 and 2.0 Successes
PAYPAL “Survived over Money Laundry” Russian Mob Money Transfers
GOOGLE “We don’t care about Copyright” F*** Copyright laws, but we do no evil.
YOUPORN “No more Paid Content” Wasn’t porn the money maker on the Internet?
EBAY “Let’s pay no VAT” a perfect platform to sell anything without paying any taxes.
SKYPE “Founders had built Kazaa first” let’s share music breaking all copyright laws.
SPOTIFY “Ownership of Music” What about the investment in your iTunes library?
FACEBOOK “Do we really care about your Privacy?” Is it a stolen the idea?
Companies that didn’t make it in the first wave. Ask yourself why? They didn’t execute at the
boundaries of the markets: Yahoo, PSINet, AltaVista, AOL, etc.
What about Interoute?
How is Interoute Breaking the Boundaries? Discuss this with your peers?
How can you work as an Entrepreneur at Interoute?
Ask yourself following question each day when talking to:
- your customers
- new prospects
- your colleagues
- your management
- your board of directors
- potential investors of your customers
Help your prospects and customers to break
boundaries and create new ecosystems.
Use your company (=your asset) for that.
How to think like an Entrepreneur?
“How can I bring new business “into” Interoute? Am I
able to earn enough money on top of the Interoute
infrastructure and company operation?”
But also, how do I benefit?
Bar discussion tonight:
World Economic Forum at Davos:
“More and more people work from virtual platforms instead at companies”
• Work is auctioned to contractors
• Salaries in Central Europe stagnate
• Deflation has hit us, will QE help
• Returns on capital, rise. A fact!
So, how can you be successful?
How to get started?
Hacking Success!
The Theory of Success
Success = Some Talent + Luck
Great Success = Some Talent + A Lot of Luck
Conclusion: With this Theoretical law You Know Nothing! What about you?
Danny Kahnemans law
Nobel price winner 2002
How to get started?
Hacking Success!
The Practical Approach to Success
Great Success =
Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor
Great Success =
Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor
The Lance-Factor is the only thing that counts!
Break the rules = Doping in cycling
Willpower = Train more than others
Focus = do one thing, Tour the France
Overcome defeat = Learn from mistakesYou
+ Kiss Frogs
(many)
+
Great Success =
Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor
I wish you Great Success!
+ +Avoid Stress:
‘It makes you Dumb”
Do more sports!
Train Willpower, it’s a muscle:
Routines of new meetings
Routines of prospection
Routines of re-visits
Say no, many times.
Climb up with a high ambition:
“But take many, many recoveries from
- Mistakes (don’t take doping)
- No’s (learn from defeat)
- Changes (evolution)
What do I do?
Invest in Growth.
I help Corporates, Governments and Individuals to setup Investment Funds for
Innovation, Technology and the Development of New Digital Entrepreneurs.
I invest as a business angel and collaborate with VC funds in various tech
startups. I support them with international business development and
technology marketing.
In 2015 I moved to Dubai.
Conclusion
Take-Aways:
1. Get actual on the state of technology and economy, its
realities and how to take advantage.
2. Don’t be naïve, the winner takes it all: look for people
that commit to break boundaries (for you).
3. Stay focused, but be patient. There is one certainty:
it’ll be seriously big and change is constant.
Thank you

  • 11. . . . Connecting The Real(-Time) Economy Business Level Big Data Consumer Level IoT & Web & Mobile Datacenters, Cloud, Storage, Software, Processes, Workloads, etc. IoT: sensors, wearables, IoT platforms Social & Search: tracking online giants Sales TrendsInfrastructure ? We love technology, but will it pay our bills?
  • 12. It’s Big So many devices and so much data… It’s Noisy So many opinions… It’s Confusing So many possible decisions… Should we wait? How (where) do we get started? Who can really help us? Do we need to start over? What technology do we need?
  • 13. . . . So, where do we start now? With Sales of course! Business Level Big Data Consumer Level IoT & Web & Mobile Datacenters, Cloud, Storage, Software, Processes, Workloads, etc. IoT: sensors, wearables, IoT platforms Social & Search: tracking big players Innovation Level Entrepreneurship Work Strategic: Investing, giant opportunity Be Operational: Pro-active in business development Sales TrendsInfrastructure Where to sell?
  • 14. But, Sales deals with Realities: What are the Big Data Realities #1 How real is the level of Integration with IoT: Example, although SaaS is hot, how many real Application workloads are in the Cloud “Most people are perfectly happy with their application running on their server in the company” And what about the desktops? How many run in your cloud?
  • 15. What other Big Data Realities #1 Level of Integration with IoT: Example, although SaaS is hot, how many real Application workloads are in the Cloud “Most people are perfectly happy with their application running on their server in the company” #2 Price Reduction & Standardization The price of Cloud and Storage is coming down. Seriously down. “Create a long-term partnership with your customer by explaining you’ll be helping him over time” $35 per TB month…. We can currently produce at $2 to $3 per TB per month!
  • 16. Where are Big Data Opportunities? #3 Find Your Industries and its disruptors - Utilities Smart metering and distribution - Insurance Behavior tracking and biometrics for auto and life product lines - Capital Goods Factory automation, autonomous mining - Agriculture Yield improvement - Pharma Clinical trial monitoring - Healthcare Leveraging of human capital and clinical trials - Medtech Patient monitoring - Automotive Autonomous driving, connected cars - Transport Smarter logistics - Consumer Wearables, extending brands’ digital ecosystems And many more - Retail Improved supply chain management and smart marketing - Leisure improving customer satisfaction and cost control - … What about the ecosystem?
  • 17. Sales Start with Realities: What are the IoT Realities #1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something” “Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App or a Logarithm to switch off the light.” Consider #1: Although prices decline and standardization continues of components e.g. Bluetooth chips at <$1 e.g. Processor chips at <$2 e.g. Gyroscopes & accelerometers at <$1 But, when you need a multiple of 200Bn of these??? Consider #2: Previous wave of computing (Web 2.0: social/local/mobile – SoLoMo) e.g. Foursquare, Google, Facebook, etc. e.g. Uber, AirBnB,
  • 18. What other IoT Realities? #1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something” “Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App to switch off the light.” #2 Sustainability of IoT is with companies that can translate the connectivity into an “Ongoing Service.” “Costs of servicing, replenishing or replacing can be rolled into a regular subscription payment”
  • 19. This is where you make the difference: Creating the IoT / Big Data Ecosystem #1 Difficult business models – No upfront money is being made with “Smart… something” “Most people are perfectly happy with the familiar analogue interface. You don’t need an App to switch off the light.” #2 Sustainability of IoT is with companies that can translate the connectivity into an “Ongoing Service.” “Costs of servicing, replenishing or replacing can be rolled into a regular subscription payment” #3 Long-term, using data collected through a pervasive network of gadgets to make the world better “So, technology will fade away from viewing (e.g. Apps, web interfaces). It’ll become invisible once it understands the user’s preferences” Infrastructure and the value chain of the IoT industry still needs to be assembled. We are far off the returns from the IoT to happen!!! It is your job to create the unique Ecosystem to help you sell
  • 20. IoT and Big Data Ecosystems are invented as we speak. Sales processes are:
  • 21. So, what to look for? Big businesses are created at the boundaries and edges of the market Find disruptors, innovators and entrepreneurs that help you design the ecosystem, while they push the edges of the economy and the markets. Success in our world (Digital, Internet, Connectivity) is being driven by people that are willing to work at the edge of the economy in order to hack the system: • E.g. taxi-industry • E.g. hotel-industry But, don’t start hacking yourself… The trick is to find others to break the boundaries for you! Become their trusted partner.
  • 22. Examples: Who’s at the edge today? Let’s break the Hotel monopoly to offer better/alternative hospitality Let’s break the Taxi monopoly to offer better/alternative transportation Brian Chesky Travis Kalanick
  • 23. Who did break the boundaries: Learn from Web 1.0 and 2.0 Successes PAYPAL “Survived over Money Laundry” Russian Mob Money Transfers GOOGLE “We don’t care about Copyright” F*** Copyright laws, but we do no evil. YOUPORN “No more Paid Content” Wasn’t porn the money maker on the Internet? EBAY “Let’s pay no VAT” a perfect platform to sell anything without paying any taxes. SKYPE “Founders had built Kazaa first” let’s share music breaking all copyright laws. SPOTIFY “Ownership of Music” What about the investment in your iTunes library? FACEBOOK “Do we really care about your Privacy?” Is it a stolen the idea? Companies that didn’t make it in the first wave. Ask yourself why? They didn’t execute at the boundaries of the markets: Yahoo, PSINet, AltaVista, AOL, etc.
  • 24. What about Interoute? How is Interoute Breaking the Boundaries? Discuss this with your peers? How can you work as an Entrepreneur at Interoute? Ask yourself following question each day when talking to: - your customers - new prospects - your colleagues - your management - your board of directors - potential investors of your customers
  • 25. Help your prospects and customers to break boundaries and create new ecosystems. Use your company (=your asset) for that. How to think like an Entrepreneur? “How can I bring new business “into” Interoute? Am I able to earn enough money on top of the Interoute infrastructure and company operation?” But also, how do I benefit?
  • 26. Bar discussion tonight: World Economic Forum at Davos: “More and more people work from virtual platforms instead at companies” • Work is auctioned to contractors • Salaries in Central Europe stagnate • Deflation has hit us, will QE help • Returns on capital, rise. A fact! So, how can you be successful?
  • 27. How to get started? Hacking Success! The Theory of Success Success = Some Talent + Luck Great Success = Some Talent + A Lot of Luck Conclusion: With this Theoretical law You Know Nothing! What about you? Danny Kahnemans law Nobel price winner 2002
  • 28. How to get started? Hacking Success! The Practical Approach to Success Great Success = Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor
  • 29. Great Success = Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor The Lance-Factor is the only thing that counts! Break the rules = Doping in cycling Willpower = Train more than others Focus = do one thing, Tour the France Overcome defeat = Learn from mistakesYou + Kiss Frogs (many) +
  • 30. Great Success = Some Talent + A Lot of Luck + Lance-Factor I wish you Great Success! + +Avoid Stress: ‘It makes you Dumb” Do more sports! Train Willpower, it’s a muscle: Routines of new meetings Routines of prospection Routines of re-visits Say no, many times. Climb up with a high ambition: “But take many, many recoveries from - Mistakes (don’t take doping) - No’s (learn from defeat) - Changes (evolution)
  • 31. What do I do? Invest in Growth. I help Corporates, Governments and Individuals to setup Investment Funds for Innovation, Technology and the Development of New Digital Entrepreneurs. I invest as a business angel and collaborate with VC funds in various tech startups. I support them with international business development and technology marketing. In 2015 I moved to Dubai.
  • 32. Conclusion Take-Aways: 1. Get actual on the state of technology and economy, its realities and how to take advantage. 2. Don’t be naïve, the winner takes it all: look for people that commit to break boundaries (for you). 3. Stay focused, but be patient. There is one certainty: it’ll be seriously big and change is constant.
