This Workshop aims to identify business models that could leverage the sustainable development of cities, fields, industries and communities.
The implementation of IoT solutions should be seen as a funding not as a cost. Its implementation is expected to bring efficiency in the provision of services by public and private entities. Solutions should be used when they have savings and only then there will be sustainability in the applications and a gain in relation to the whole society.
IoT is at the top of expectations. It ranks as a possible promoter of efficiency processes. Solutions around world are arising to promise to revolutionize our lives and the way we relate to the environment we live in. Dumpsters, sidewalks, streetlights, traffic lights, all receive the smart adjective. Some cities promote a show of diverse technologies. On the other hand, these solutions are pilots or concepts that have not yet proven their sustainability.
Implementation challenges are given:
· How to move from concept to reality?
· How to make these solutions viable economically?
· Do they bring sensitive returns to the citizen?
· Do they improve processes so as to generate savings to the public manager or the private sector?
· How to ensure security and privacy without impact on the financial viability of the solution?
Considering sustainability as the quality of a system to remain viable in activity over its lifetime, we cannot leave the show of new technologies, but it's time to embrace what is economically feasible and the solutions that could be sensitive to citizens.
