On September 29th, 2016, the 3rd international “Internet of Things” exhibition and conference will take place in the World Trade Center, Moscow. Shortly before the event, one of the speakers, Dmitry Moiseev from Tibbo Systems, gave an interview exclusively for our media service. Dmitry shared his expert opinion on IoT evolution and told us about IoT implementation possibilities.
Interviewer: Internet of Things Conference (IoT) Speaker: Dmitry Moiseev (D.M.)
IoT: What is IoT for Tibbo and you in particular: the next stage of Internet development, new economics concept, or a marketing tool?
D.M.: The Internet of Things concept is too broad to include it into a single category. In fact, it’s the result of evolving technologies for collecting, transmitting, and analyzing data (not the result of the Internet development in its traditional meaning), irrespective of whether these technologies are a part of the Internet. We at Tibbo Systems look at it from the practical point of view. We got used to M2M communications and are broadly using them for designing IoT solutions now. Marketing nowadays converts a plain thing into a hot item. I also believe that the IoT traction came from such successful marketing activities.
IoT: What prospects does IoT bring to both global industry leaders and Russian startups?
D.M.: The world is globalizing now, and this process is speeding up at an incredibly fast pace. Large companies, which are somehow bound up with IoT, are trying to take part in its development. The Internet of Things allows aggregating various technologies, suppliers, and diverse services into a single solution. It brings in new business models and marketplaces. IoT is also a brilliant chance for startups.
IoT: Where can IoT be implemented and how will it influence our everyday life?
D.M.: IoT has proved to be useful in a wide variety of economic sectors: medicine, energetics, production, agriculture, transport, finance, and even household. At present, the effect of employing IoT is not so traceable, though in the future this technology will help us to treat the environment more carefully, cut production costs, enhance quality and quantity of provided services, as well as control all processes more accurately.
IoT: How is IoT evolving in the agriculture field? Can you give an example of IoT technologies implemented in this industry?
D.M.: In the Russian past, agriculture was always treated as a field absorbing the latest technologies with a delay. However, now this sector is experiencing the tech boom, and considering the shortage of farming land, we must use the current resources as effectively as possible. The IoT can assist in organizing all production stages from soil and seed preparation and planting to harvesting, storage, and processing. Our company has successfully implemented a number of such projects. The most interesting one, in my opinion, is raw materials state monitoring system deployed together with our partner, Rusagro Company. Rusagro took the lead in implementing game-changing technologies in agriculture, so we built the system allowing real-time raw materials state monitoring, as well as event forecasting.
International Tibbo holding sets the pace in hardware and software solutions, including IoT technologies for process automation, IT infrastructure monitoring, remote control, and data center supervision. Tibbo Systems specializes in developing the unique AggreGate IoT Integration Platform and is now an official sponsor of the annual “Internet of Things” conference dedicated to the leading-edge IoT developments.
