Naked Approach is a research project building the hyperconnected world with the sensor revolution. Hyperconnectedness and sensors will radically change the way we perceive, act, do business and interact in the world. Demos Helsinki has published two scenarios about the hyperconnected planet until the year 2040. Download the book for free here.
Important: Something to do and somewhere to go to
Important – only you can help us: Fill in this questionnaire to help us map the new value creation methods (takes 2 minutes to answer). For this research, we are surveying companies about their goals and ways to develop their business through smart, connected processes, products and services. We will send you the research results after the analysis.
Important – you really should join in: 18th January, The Naked Approach Industry Seminar in Tampere. Come see what happens when nearables take shape in the world around us. How can your business benefit from them?
Inspiration: New Ways of Value Creation
There are at least 7 ways to create value in upcoming hyperconnected business environments. These 7 ways are Smarter products, Real-time directed resources, Efficiency of manufacturing, Energy savings, Data commercialization, X-as-a-Service models and Platforms. Below you’ll find some easily chewable additional information on all of these.
