Workshop: Connectivity Conventions for Improved Sustainability of Multi-Vendor IoT Solutions

This workshop is the central element of the project “Connectivity conventions for improved sustainability of multi-vendor IoT solutions" by the Alexandra Institute and Aarhus University In collaboration with DigitalLead

At the workshop, front-runner municipalities within IoT and IoT-vendors, either participating in the project or interested in the agenda, meet to discuss the project material and further qualify the agenda.

The workshop is inspired by an earlier KL meeting "Internet of Things – Det gode indkøb og samarbejde" in June 2022, this time with a special focus on multi-vendor projects and sustainability over time. KL is also attending this session.

Alexandra Institute and Aarhus University will present the results so far, a new proposed method / framework with key principles, and facilitate a debate and session during which we can experiment with the approach on real or fictive cases to get feedback for further development. The full programme is below.

The output of the workshop will add substance to the project’s effort to make initial recommendations when it comes to multi-vendor IoT projects, especially for municipalities, which may be used for instance in future call for tenders (udbud).

This will include technical suggestions (e.g. around connectivity), architecture suggestions (e.g. a layered approach to more easily decouple and replace some elements of a large solution), and some organisational suggestions (e.g. responsibilities, ownership).

DigitalLead will facilitate interviews with interested participants during or after the workshop to gather further input.
