Envisioning an Internet of Things Data Marketplace - Industrial Internet Consortium

As the Industrial Internet matures beyond its incubation phase, the next phase, which is, monetization, is poised to come from avenues like an IoT data marketplace. An IoT data marketplace will allow secure and an ‘owner controlled’ exchange of sensor data (or sensor data combined with other data sources) between interested entities. The intent will be to create specialized services based on advanced insights, delivering significant value to the buyers of this data. Let us look at a few scenarios: Emergence Of A Utility Big Data Market Place. The Utility big data market place will act as a place for bringing together disparate sets of data from different entities like generators, transmitters, distributors, retailers, market, operators, regulators and customers; and integrate them to derive required intelligence as and when required.

Producers won’t show up without Consumers and vice versa. One of the models that I’d proposed, that works especially well for startups like ShopKick is to build the value proposition in such a manner that your producers bring in the consumers. Another way of building a two-sided marketplace is to do it the other way round: Focus on the consumers and leverage their interest to bring in the producers.
