IoT Proof of Value Accelerator: 5 Day Solution Design

Telstra Limited

Proving the business value of IoT using the power of Azure IoT.

Telstra Purple's Azure IoT proof-of-value (PoV) accelerator is a 5-day solution design engagement that helps organisations who are at the beginning of their Azure IoT journey and need a rapid and cost-effective way to prove the value of an IoT solution. Understanding and proving the business value of an IoT solution to build a business case for executive approval and sponsorship can be a challenge for technology leaders who lack internal capability considering the broad range of technologies involved in an IoT solution. Working out the fit-for-purpose sensors, connectivity options, Azure IoT platform know-how and visualisation options can be challenging both operationally and commercially just to build a business case.

At Telstra Purple, we design and implement a wide range of IoT solutions for our customers across various industries in Australia. Being the technology services arm of Telstra, our consultants and engineers work with a large pool of IoT device vendors, specialist IoT platform vendors and specialist communications technology providers to help our customers achieve their business outcomes with IoT as an enabler. All this backed by our strategic partnership with Microsoft and powered by Australia's largest and fastest IoT network from Telstra. This engagement gives organisations the opportunity to tap into this enormous brains-trust to achieve their IoT objectives without the need for a huge investment in proving business value before scaling.
