Clear vision

Hanan Darwish, president of Schneider Electric for the Gulf region and Pakistan, points out that the UAE is making great progress in adopting new technologies such as the Internet of Things compared to all countries of the world, as it is necessary to use these technologies in the UAE, and a clear vision for leadership. inspires companies and individuals. Institutions review the benefits of the Internet of Things and explain their importance to individuals and use them
On the steps that can be taken to develop the infrastructure and systems to enable the use of IoT technologies in many different services or sectors, Darwish says: There are these two parts to this response, the first of which includes the projects and the existing structure (Brown Field). ), in which case you need to convince the developer behind these projects. Invest in the development of existing infrastructure or buildings or transportation systems in modern technologies such as the Internet of Things, while the other part relates to projects or new buildings (Green Field), in which case the main goal of developers is to reduce costs as much as possible. It benefits from projects, and therefore must be an innovative approach to convince them to use modern technologies like the Internet of Things in these new projects we are doing at Schneider Electric.

All sectors

"IoT technologies are primarily targeted at all sectors, but we have noticed in the UAE that there are a number of industry-leading sectors such as oil and gas, service facilities, construction and factories," she added.
In the oil and gas sector, ADNOC, which has partnered with Schneider Electric, is introducing a system called Panorama Project to manage all of its subsidiaries and manage assets and operations through a single gateway. In the utility sector, each sector is responsible for producing its own energy, whether from wind, solar, nuclear or other energy sources. Here we find a tendency to use modern technologies such as the Internet of Things to control power generation and consumption in these sectors, leading to higher efficiency. In two Energy works in these sectors.
In the construction sector there is a growing trend in the UAE towards the use of modern technologies, including the Internet of Things, and there are 500 new buildings in the UAE that are currently implementing these technologies because of the benefits such as higher levels of security, which provides for example, in case of fire in the building, and the ability to analyze energy consumption data to achieve higher efficiency and lower energy consumption. In the manufacturing sector there are several factories in the UAE that use IoT technology to measure the efficiency of machines. used in manufacturing in relation to energy consumption, and measuring time. Crashes or downtime, as well as using IoT generated reports to make more accurate decisions.

Increase rationalization rates

On the aspects of life that will change in the UAE due to IoT technologies over the next few years, Darwish says: We can give an example here of consuming electricity and water. When the government delivers electricity and water subsidies, individuals do not feel the need to save or rationalize the consumption of these resources. Modern mobile applications to monitor energy consumption, and alert these users to high electricity consumption, for example in one of the house's installations, or for example when using air conditioning in winter or when the house is empty of people, which contributes to Goodyear behavior of the population, especially with existing legislation in the state, which is pushing for the adoption of greener or environmentally friendly buildings, an area in which modern technologies such as the Internet play a big role.

Robust communication network

Ahmed Odeh, Managing Director of VMware Middle East and North Africa, said the digital transformation of UAE leadership places the country among the most important countries in the adoption of the Internet of Things, and the advanced telecommunications infrastructure is critical.

A strong telecommunication network is needed to enable widespread adoption of the Internet of Things, serving telecommunications technologies such as high-speed 5G mobile networks, virtual networks, narrowband Internet (LTE) and LoRa networks, meeting the requirements, Odeh said. Urgent and non-urgent IoT technology. Security is another key pillar to consider when adopting the IoT. Institutions should consider protecting new sources of information, decision-making, and IoT communications between IoT devices, gateways, data centers, and survey information.
We will see significant transformation in many sectors such as government and public sector, energy, oil and gas, telecommunications, transport and communications and manufacturing. IoT and analytics, along with cloud computing, will be the backbone of more efficient, affordable terminal computing and more detailed data. Information and details provided by peripheral computing are needed in millisecond decisions, such as self-driving vehicle decisions that move through busy city streets.

$ 171 billion in 2018

According to Odeh, according to a recent industry report, spending on IoT technology in EMEA reached $ 171 billion in 2018. To maximize the profitability of IoT, organizations in the UAE will seek to link technologies such as blockchain and AI.
