‘Internet of Things’ or IoT is a key foundation of the Smart Nation in Singapore. IoT can enrich the digital landscape to improve quality of life and business efficiency. IoT provides the sensing and intelligence capability to monitor events of interest, process the events and take appropriate action – all of which can be done automatically. Knowledge of IoT and its enabling technologies, and how best to use them, will support organisations to achieve the vision of the Smart Nation. Organisations such as government ministries, MNCs and startups will benefit from knowing how best to envision and implement IoT solutions effectively to meet the needs of their users.

In order to utilise the capabilities of IoT within the Smart Nation, it is important to be able to envision suitable applications and to be equipped with knowledge of being able to use practices such as Service Design to conceptualise solutions to real world challenges in a user-centric manner.

The course will cover IoT’s enabling technologies and how they can be best utilised from an architectural viewpoint. The focus of the course is on envisioning suitable application of IoT technologies in a variety of ‘real world’ scenarios. The course covers cloud-based IoT services which provide functionality for building and operating IoT solutions in an efficient and scalable manner.

The course will demonstrate how IoT has been applied in different situations across the globe and highlight significant IoT initiatives in Singapore. Case studies and workshops will reinforce the learning and enable participants to envision how IoT can be utilised for their own use cases.
