  • If you've always wanted to know how to make money with data and how to design digital service offerings, don't miss Madeleine and Christian's opening keynote. In just 10 minutes, they'll give you a glimpse into the exciting world of monetizing data and present the potential of different service variants - from purely digital service to "Equipment as a Service." But this is just the beginning! This speech serves as an introduction to a series of successive workshops taking place on the Gather.Town online platform. In these workshops, you can dive deep and learn how to transform your service area and achieve a financial return. And the best part? Participation is free of charge! So, join us and start your digital transformation journey now!


    One term meets many different views of what digital services actually are. Whether privately or professionally, as a provider or as a consumer, and depending on the role in the company, we understand digital services to mean something different. In the next 30 minutes, Christian will present three generic categories into which digital service offerings can be pragmatically and efficiently classified from a business perspective. These three categories form the basis of your decision about which of the three workshops is ultimately the right one for you.

    FROM THE INITIAL IDEA TO DIGITAL SERVICE Do you have an idea for monetizing IoT data that you want to develop into a digital service offering? Or maybe no idea for monetization yet, but you've already collected a lot of IoT data? Then join us for Workshop #1. Now is the moment to unleash your ideas and develop great services. Christian explains how digital service offerings are created and what to look out for in the first phase as a product manager or business developer. This is clearly about one thing: you're dwelling on a lot of IoT data and you want to make money with it. Here we'll talk about how IoT data can be turned into a digital business model where you can offer your customers >>knowledge<< .

  • WORKSHOP 2 60 Min

    THE DUET - MONETIZING DIGITAL KNOWLEDGE & ANALOG SKILLS Customers Often want more than just to buy information from you: they want you to do tasks for them, and to do so in a contractually agreed manner. In return, your service organization becomes an internal customer of your digital services and a beneficiary of your collected knowledge from IoT data. Discover how you can transform your service operations to perform tasks more efficiently than ever using digital services. Learn how to make money with hybrid services - the combination of digital knowledge and analog actions.

  • WORKSHOP 3 60 Min

    Are you ready to take your IoT initiative to the next level? Are you ready to take your IoT initiative to the next level? Our third workshop, in collaboration with "Findustrial," is designed for those who are tackling the pinnacle of digital business models – Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS). You're already generating knowledge from IoT data, have established digital services, and your service organization efficiently fulfills contracts. Now, it's time for the machine itself to become the service. In doing so, you're seeking the right financing options. In this workshop, we will detail how you can utilize financing options to turn your machine into a subscription, billing it monthly based on the collected IoT usage data. Not only is this sustainable in the context of the circular economy, but it's also economically appealing.
