Hello All, Merry Christmas to everyone. My advisory team shared with me some results which i thought we can summarize and add to the blogs for everyone. Based on our projects in Advisory Services around Smart Services in 2007, we feel the M2M/Smart Services Landscape has revenue potential around following areas for vendors to capitalize on. Here is a food for thought. Issue we see is everyone claims to do every thing and then don't get even 1 thing right. Hence, its critical that the vendors introduce self imposed constraints on what they are really good in the value creation model (refer to image) and focus on those areas only and for remainder create an innovative eco-system via collaboration/partnerships which is relies on Interdependence vs. Independence. There is money for everyone...if done right including the end users!!

Hello friends, I wanted to get back to blogging world and share perspective on advantange of standards adoption, a lesson from Energy Vertical. Energy started 7 years back with Witsml ( WellSite Information Transfer Mark up language) a standard way for variety of applications to speak with each other. 7 years down the road, the Witsml standard is being widely adopted and showing results never imagined before. Why Witsml acceptance happened? As big operator companies (users) took the lead to form governance body to make Witsml a standard. Today, i see in many new industries standards are more being promoted by vendors vs. users. Users can drive adoption much faster than vendors, thats my 2 cents. In oil and gas 7 yrs really mean 7 months to 1 yr in other verticals ( as generally speaking Energy industry moves at slower pace). Lets talk about Witsml. Witsml is enabling many applications exchange relevant subsets of data amongst vendors/users and other 3 parties merging humans/technology/workflows. This is a big step change than how oil and gas companies have operated in the past. The above is leading to enhanced decision making, 2-6% increase in reservoir recovery, up to 25% reduction in opex, upto 12% increase in production rate and much more. There is a lesson here for everyone...if users push standards adoptions, the time scale of mass adoption can be much quicker..any comments?

I was asked a very intriguing question today during one of the meetings which i wanted to pose to the entire community.
We hear a lot about M2M/smart services being billions of dollar market in 2011. However, what is actual market share today and the market share split amongst M2M vendors? Any ideas?
Peggy, Mike i am guessing you may have answers to this?
Cheers and looking forward to some feedback

I am delighted to announce release of Megs portal version1.5 which allows our clients to monitor both fixed and mobile assets now.
Fixed assets like pipes/tanks/compressors/buildings etc.
Mobile assets like commercial trucks/fleets.
We are currently offering this service as a "Managed Service " to minimize our client headaches. Our clients say to us all the time, we want a soluton with zero maintenance, zero headaches and that keep our assets (mobile/fixed) up and running all the time. Hence we came up with solution to enable that. The software not only allows client to monitor any asset type, but also makes your mobile workforce more productive with its Workflow module. To learn more please call us on 713 622 1082 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our 1st major user of this product is one of world's largest mine, where we are monitoring their fixed facilities and mobile assets (CAT trucks) and here are some comments from mine executives.
"We love this system, its helped us go away from having silos of disparate applications for different asset types which dont talk to each other, to now having one solution which I can view anywhere, anytime", Mine Manager
"Earlier our trucks will sit at the hopper and we would not be aware why?, now we know instantly if our trucks are sitting at hopper via live real time videos from MEGS1.5, compare that to weight of coal in the facility real time and we can instantly take action, I see huge potential with this system" Operations Manager
"This system can pull data from any of our legacy facility system we installed years ago, so easily and present nicely in one simple web view, we never imagined that was possible" Mine IT Manager
Stay tuned for another major product launch we will be doing early October Kanak3.0 which has some major companies already lining to place orders. This product will help our client bridge the gap between asset teams/workflow/technology instantly.

Its been busy times so have been out of world of blogging. Interestingly today i couldnt stop myself from sharing a huge gap we are noticing on why M2M/Smart Services etc. projects are not catching on like fire....we recently are working with 2 of world's largest companies in this area and i noticed a pattern: a) There is serious lack of skill shortage to transition from products to solutions offerings. b)Sales to commercialization process for new innovative solutions is completely missing or being assumed same as traditional product oriented. c) XXXXXX waiting to hear what your valuable thoughts.

It was my 1st experience at M2M united 2007. It was a well organized event with roughly 200+ participants. Thought participants were predominantly from M2M vendor community i believe it was good as it was one of its kind event to meet so many competition/partners 1st time face to face.
Day 1, I listened to some speakers in Business/Operations track and they attracted less attention than the Technology tracks. I wasnt very surprised as typically vendor community is hungry for whats next. As I mingled and talked to many peers there was a general frustration/confusion amongst many on what M2M is, why we have mixed signals in education market ( some calling it Smart Services, some M2M , how, why etc. etc..) I was impressed at the analogy drawn by Yankee group team , that M2M community is like European union vs. USA...one union but different thinking...which made sense.
Day 2 was another exciting day, very good topics covered/addressed. I was hoping Deloitte/Accenture during their presentation will throw some light being vendor agnostic but their presentations were very generic like others and didnt communicate any huge take aways for M2M vendors. I started to notice all case studies had a very common theme, actionable data/actionable information vs. monitoring....which was good...The presentations by capitalist group like Investment banks shows the market potential is enormous and no matter what you call it, its happening....Highlight of day was award ceremony and it was wicked..Mike/peggy should consider calling it M2M hollywood :) it was amazingly conducted, red carpet, big TV screen, black tie event...wow, very impressive !!
Areas of Improvement: I think M2M united is a great community and Peggy/Mike and their team put a phenomenal show at this large scale. i encourage them to do an event with Harbor or other research groups to get a good balance of end users/vendors. I saw lack of audience participation which should be encouraged as General discussion sessions vs. Ques/Answers after ppt. I absolutely believe the commercial aspect should be thrown away from these presentations and focus should be value. Some presenters used M2M united as a platform to showcase sales pitches which wasn't prudent in the track sessions. Some topics and their presenters were wrong match but i guess when you organize an event at this large scale it can happen. It will be nice to see next yr more forums/discussions with variety of users and less track sessions topics as it can get very challenging to match speakers to session topics. I hope to see 50:50 mix of end users/vendors in upcoming years.
