Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study examines how an Information Technology consulting firm can act as an integrator for the Internet of Things. The aim is to contribute to a greater understanding of how the IoT-ecosystem looks and what roles an integrator can take in collaboration with partners. In order to create a deeper understanding of the topic a qualitative study was conducted with Softhouse's partners, customers, and themselves, in order to place them within the IoT-ecosystem. The study focused on examining how IoT solutions can be implemented in the forestry industry. The results show that Softhouse has a great potential to offer IoT solutions by a solid collaboration with partners. They should focus on becoming experts in data analysis through training and recruitment. Selection of partners for different projects depends on its size, complexity
and type. Through analysis and by using the business model Business Model Canvas it is possible to see which partners are most suitable for which type of project. This was applied to two such cases with clients in the forest industry; Södra Skog and APEA Mobile Security Solutions.
