AllThingsTalk Cloudplatform B2B


After a first Living Lab project in 2014 for the B2C market, AllThingsTalk (ATT) wants to investigate the possibilities of Internet of Things (IoT) for the B2B market. Today, the idea is to convert the existing ATT solution to a B2B cloud platform for businesses.

Companies that develop products or solutions can now develop smart services and devices with this cloud platform, enabling them to roll out a connected business. Since the companies using the ATT platform will maintain the ownership of their customers, ATT will have to work in a B2B2C model and subsequently adapt the solution based on the needs and expectations of those companies and end-users.

In this Living Lab project, MICT will gain insights in:

  • IoT related topics such as data ownership, trust, identity management, data privacy and data security by means of an environmental scan
  • Potential B2B customer and competitors by means of extended desk research
  • The needs and wants of potential end-users and stakeholders of the cloud platform by means of in-depth interviews
  • Real-life experiences with the IoT platform by means of a field trial

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/01/2015 – 31/12/2015.
