Netherlands, Schiphol-Rijk, 27 October 2016 – IoT is a big deal, and creates new business opportunities for organizations all over the world. But how should they respond to this development? On October 26 2016, Yenlo launched their first book “Switch on your IoT” which will give you all the answers to get you started with IoT. The book is written as part of the Nyenrode MBA thesis of René Wiersma, Enterprise Architect at Yenlo and contains examples of IoT businesses based on a solid Business Canvas Model.
At the SkyLounge of the DoubleTree by Hilton in Amsterdam, accompanied by 60 relations, customers, relations and journalists, John Mathon
(co-author, co-founder of Tibco and VP Strategy of Yenlo) handed over the first copy to the author René Wiersma.
About the book
We looked into the requirements that are needed to develop a success formula for a business in IoT. What does the ultimate business model look like, how should businesses develop their software architecture, what challenges will they face and what competences do they need to overcome them?
The book is written with contributions of John Mathon, co-founder of TIBCO and currently Vice President of Strategy of Yenlo, Ruben van der Zwan, CEO and co-founder of Yenlo and Paul Fremantle, co-founder of WSO2 and currently doing a PHD in the Internet of Things at the University of Plymouth.
