How can the data you collect from your products improve your services and revenues?

Listen to Andreas Cedborg, Product Manager @ Spotify and David Furendal, Founder @ Daresay sharing their insights – on youtube

As a leading design house for connected products, our solutions generate and collect valuable data. And we want of course our customers to get a better business when using that data. But how can that be done? We asked our friends Andreas and David if they wanted to give us some examples and tell us some of what they have learned. The result became a 90-minute webinar with open mics.

Spotify collects and analyses how we all listen to and share music and audio on their platform to understand how they should continue the evolution towards an even better user experience for us and a better business for Spotify. They evaluate how limited groups of users interact with test versions and how we all behave on the release application. How is all that insight used and taken care of?

Daresay, the digital agency founded by David has worked with customers in the process of transforming product sales to service sales, based on insights gained by collecting data from users’ behaviours. Using understandings gained from not only what the users say they do but also from what they do have resulted in several successful projects.

Connecting the Dots is a series of seminars WSI offers to customers and friends, addressing business, technology and human aspects of successful product and service development in a connected world.

Connecting the Dots events are about to learn, share and meet. Therefore we run this event as close to an IRL event as possible – everyone in the session could see each other with names and faces and we used use of breakout rooms for sharing thoughts and reflections after each speaker. The event took place on May 28, 2020.

Andreas and David’s talks are available on WSI’s youtube channel (“like, comment and subscribe”).

User interaction via delicate and elegant user interfaces on battery-powered devices can create a competitive edge for your product. But they might also create battery lifetime headache. Regardless if you are designing a device controlled via a graphical interface or a voice-controlled device, power consumption might become an unforeseen problem during product development and integration.

In WSI’s series on low power design, we have now come to part 2. This time we’ll focus on the design aspects of user interfaces. In this 30 minutes webinar, our CTO Håkan Ohlgren will share experiences and design advice gained from being active in a wide range of industrial sectors including mobile, medical and industrial.

The webinar was held May 8th 2020 and will be available on WSI’s Youtube channel in a while.

Starting on April 17th, we started a series of system design webinars focusing on lop power design.

IoT and Industrial IoT is happening now and the number of connected devices is exploding. The function of the connected device (e.g. a sensor) might be very straight forward. But the wide range of connectivity solutions put high demands on the system designer to select the right solution. Among many different parameters, low power consumption has almost become synonymous with IoT. In times where many system integrators build battery-powered solutions, making a low power device might become hard. This series of seminars aims to give an overview of some critical areas and parameters that must be considered while making a low power IoT system.

The first webinar in the series cover both system, HW and FW aspects of making a Low Power IoT device.

The first webinar was presented by our CTO Håkab Ohlgren and hosted by our R&D Manager Lars Wattsgård. Our video guru Hamed Rafi saw to that everything run smoothly. It was held Friday, April 17th and is now available on Youtube (link)

The second webinar, Low Power design – User Interfaces will be held May 8th.
