Live demos at the show

As part of the Deloitte stand (D571), Deloitte showcased a number of exciting demos including:

  • Patient 360
    Deloitte Patient 360 is an IoT-based demo experience journey that focuses on empowering patients, providers, payers, and the pharmaceutical industry. Specifically, it can deliver better patient experiences by providing data and analysis to drive better outcomes and productivity in the healthcare marketplace.
  • Store 360 (Retail Sales / includes EngageMe) 
    Retail 3600 is a custom solution built to provide an omni-channel shopping experience to customers via a mobile app (EngageMe) and in-store inventory management capabilities to retailers via a web app (Store 3600), giving customers the experience they desire while helping retailers meet their goals of increased sales and operational efficiency.
  • Predictive Maintenance 
    Uses latest techniques in IoT and machine learning to predict maintenance needs of machines. Eliminates the machine health guesswork and move beyond regularly scheduled, reactive maintenances.
  • IoT-Enabled Foosball Table 
    Connected Foosball is a concept developed by Deloitte Digital to explore the potential of the IoT with enterprise scale platforms. This demo shows how data can be quickly (and cheaply) collected from physical environments and combined with that collected from digital touchpoints to enhance customer insight, improve business processes, and deliver a tailored experience.

    During a match, the table uses embedded sensors to capture events as they occur and sends this information to the Salesforce cloud to track metrics for registered players and teams. The data tracked by Salesforce and a Raspberry Pi inside the table is used by the Adobe marketing cloud to deliver a companion application via AEM screens in real time, providing the players with live reactions to events on the table. The Adobe campaign product is also deployed to use the Salesforce data to target registered players with automated tweets and emails, providing live score updates, reminders to play, and a roundup of the day’s action. 
  • Hack-A-Lightbulb
    During IoT Solutions Barcelona the Dutch Cyber Risk team will present a light bulb controlled by a remote power control unit. Using a special recording device (the HackRF), we record the signals a remote sends to this unit: ON and OFF. The recording device clones these signals and is able to control the light bulb without any help from the remote. Such a recording device can also be used in different situations.

    Think about the paradigm—Did we hack a remote power control unit or did we enable it for internet connectivity?
  • Connected Homes
    Deloitte Digital have developed a “Connected Lounge” environment to help organizations think about their vision for Connected Homes. It is a physical environment where visitors can see the technologies in action, including motion sensors, robot hoovers, connected lighting, smart thermostats, and connected plant sensors. The technology is supported by a solution architecture which brings disparate technologies together and a “proof of concept” mobile app, receiving and acting on the data provided by the connected devices. All this is driven by a set of customer personas and journeys, exploring the value to different groups. 

    The Deloitte Connected Lounge can help organizations to think about how best to deliver value for their customers and for the business, while addressing the challenges they will face.
