The path to a new tomorrow

We are driving development in the right direction and at an increased pace. We address our clients based on four strong societal trends that we monitor, and where we are experts from a connected perspective.

Connected Industry

To ensure its long-term competitiveness, industry must embrace sustainability and digitalisation, two keywords in future corporate positioning. With our advisory services, we help companies with feasibility studies and implementation to position their services in the connected world.

Digitalisation affects not only the industrial charac­teristics of products, but also what business models are relevant. Connected industry is largely about servicification.

An important aspect for achieving success is that it often requires a fundamental shift in the perception of how to create value for the end customer. When a product is connected, allow­ing the collection and analysis of data, it becomes possible to optimise and streamline its use from a management perspective.

Individual contexts become connected contexts, where everything is optimised in systems rather than in an individual product. Key sustainability impacts include greater security and reduced energy consumption.

Connected Consumer

The spread of digitalisation changes the rela­tionship between companies and consumers. A company no longer sells a product, but rather a solution to a customer problem. What were previ­ously associated services could tomorrow become more profitable than the product itself.

Business models are changing, and companies need to adapt to existing trends such as social media and online commerce. But new trends like smart homes are also rapidly emerging. It is likely that different ecosystems of owners and participants will emerge.

For example, security solutions installed in homes could become ecosystems that can also be carriers of connected services from other suppliers, such as health monitoring or secure transfer of single-use codes for locked doors for home deliveries. Ikea, Apple and Google are examples of strong players that may take control of ecosystems in smart homes.

Cybercom is able to deliver the technical solutions for future ecosystems, and manage them in flexible cloud services.

Connected City

We assist your strategy to build a smarter and more sustainable society of tomorrow.

A hundred years ago there were only twelve cities in the world with a population greater than one million. Today there are over 500, and that number is growing. This brings greater problems of overload in areas such as energy, infrastruc­ture and waste management.

Digitalisation is quite simply essential to make better use of our resources, intelligently, sustainably, and in an ethically defensible way in urban life. Smart homes are the close perspective, and many smart homes create the building blocks of a smart city, with even more efficient functions. The city becomes a device, able to control how it uses energy most efficiently, to avoid traffic jams or manage electric driverless cars that communicate with each other and with their surroundings.

All this will also affect corporate business models and the relationships between the customer and industry, which the city must embrace and become a part of. We have an important role to play in this as an enabler, with the combination of our understanding of the connect­ed world and our technical expertise.

Connected Citizen

We help our clients to build safe and efficient ways to interact with and safeguard the interests of today's and tomorrow's growing, diverse and aging population.

Society faces a huge challenge in the expectations of its citizens for digitalisation, apps, communica­tion in many different channels, paperless forms, and the ability to easily interact with the communi­ty.

This places completely new demands on public authorities in terms of mind-set and the building of systems, not only for ease of use, but also for security, identity management, sustainability and compliance, which must all be managed from a totally new perspective.

One important trend is the aging population, with a rising dependency ratio. Should we use digitalised solutions such as health monitoring and automation? This is an interdiscipli­nary challenge with ethical, technological, political, economic, and business perspectives brought to the fore, and as advisors we must be able to handle every aspect.
