Southeast Asia’s leading Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) thought leaders will be gathering in Jakarta, in August, to discuss the opportunities and challenges of IoT/M2M in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Among the leading thinkers are Telkomsel President Director, Ririek Adriansyah, and Mr. Bambang Heru Tjahjono, Director General for ICT Applications at Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology. They will be speaking at the Asia IoT Business Platform.


According to IDC, IoT in Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) is set to explode from 3.1 billion to 8.6 billion devices, growing a market of US$250 billion to US$583 billion between 2015 and 2020. Southeast Asia, with a population of over 620 million, a growing consumer class, rapidly improving communications infrastructure and capital dense cities will play a crucial role in driving this growth. Indonesia will play a leading role in SEA’s growth, with the region’s largest, and the world’s fourth largest population.


Zaf Coelho, Project Director of Asia IoT Business Platform said, “Indonesia offers tremendous opportunities in terms of the scale and usage of IoT/M2M solutions, leveraging technology through key enterprise and policy decision making, leading the entire ASEAN region’s transformation. For example, Peugeot Citroen will discuss the potential of smart connected cars, while Trafiksverket will be discussing IoT-powered road use management systems to combat traffic congestion respectively, a huge problem in Jakarta and other SEA cities.”


Asia IoT Business Platform Jakarta will showcase the value and economic impact of IoT/M2M solutions, including improving private and public sector enterprise productivity, and harnessing ICT and networks to alleviate problems in dense capital cities. Focused on local telecommunication companies, businesses and enterprises, as well as end-users across relevant verticals, Asia IoT Business Platform will see major Indonesian telecommunications operators present: Telkomsel, PT Indosat, XL Axiata. Solution providers present will include ADLink, Axiros, Microsoft, N’osairis, nTels, NTT Communications, Oracle, PwC and WebNMS.


“This is a platform where Southeast Asia’s leading technology decision makers convene, impacting how ASEAN will drive the uptake of smart technology solutions to alleviate business challenges and societal problems, with a tangible impact on productivity and technology growth,” added Zaf.
