Please find below the details regarding the first webinar on Business Models in IoT.
This EPI-webinar with the title “Open Source Business Models in IoT“ is co-organised with IoT-European Platform Initiative, the Eclipse Foundation and supported by Bosch Innovations.
Date: 16th of September 2016 // 10am (CEST)
Summary: With more than 360 IoT platforms available, IoT providers and new services are overwhelmed with choices: Which platform should I choose? Will it survive the next 3-5 years? Which added costs are to expect?
Open Source Software (OSS) approach provides an alternative to more and more decision makers. But why? And what is behind it?
- Why do more and more organisations chose OSS to build or share their solutions?
- What are the myths, what are the facts, what are the hoaxes on OSS?
- What are the criteria used by an organisation to adopt or implement an OSS solution?
- What kind of business model can be built if a part or all the code is open sourced? What kind of license should be adopted?
During this seminar we will answer to these questions in the context of the IoT.
