What are the differences and relationships between DX and IoT? Introducing examples of DX companies that utilize IoT

I think there are people who don’t understand the differences and relationships between DX and IoT, and who want to use IoT to promote DX but don’t know which IoT to use.

IoT and DX have different meanings. In addition, there is a relationship that leads to the promotion of DX if IoT is used.

This time, we will introduce successful cases from the differences and relationships between DX and IoT, and tips for promoting DX with IoT.

Difference between DX and IoT

I will explain the meaning of each of DX and IoT.

What is DX

DX stands for DX Digital Transformation.

According to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, “Companies should respond to drastic changes in the business environment, utilize data and digital technology, and transform their products, services, and business models based on the needs of customers and society. To establish a competitive advantage by transforming the organization, processes, and corporate culture.”

DX is used in the sense that companies use the power of technology such as data and digital technology to gain an advantage and enrich customers and society .

What is IoT

IoT is an abbreviation for Internet of Things, a term that stands for the Internet of Things. IoT is a mechanism for acquiring data through networks and exchanging information with things that have not been connected to the Internet so far.

IoT in everyday life

The IoT that we see in our daily life includes the following.

A camera that lights up when a person approachesRefrigerator that can manage ingredients with a smartphoneA device that allows you to set the time to feed your pet with a smartphone and observe your pet with a camera

Relationship between DX and IoT

IoT is used as a means to promote DX. DX makes full use of digital technology to increase the market value and competitive advantage of products and services. IoT is also included in the “digital” of the means to promote DX.

How to promote DX using IoT

How can IoT be used to promote DX? Here are three ways to promote DX.

  1. Clarify the purpose of promoting DX
  2. Securing DX human resources
  3. Formulate measures for IoT

Clarify the purpose of promoting DX

First, let’s clarify the purpose of promoting DX.

What kind of benefits and effects do you want to obtain?Why do you want that benefit or effect?what do you needWhat are the challengeswhat do i need to solve

Let’s clarify the purpose of promoting DX in this way.

Securing DX human resources

In promoting DX, we need human resources involved in it. Collaboration between multiple departments is required, such as those who formulate management strategies to promote DX and those who create the means (digital) to promote it.

Formulate measures for IoT

Let’s decide the IoT to promote DX by referring to the types of IoT.

IoT type

  • location information

IoT devices equipped with GPS functions can be used for theft prevention and safety confirmation.

  • state grasp

It is IoT that grasps the state of things and people as data even if they are far away.

As for the state of things, you can see the temperature and humidity in the room and the speed of the machine. The human condition can be recorded in data such as heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, and sleep time.

  • operation

Sensors can be used to determine the location and status of objects, and the control system can be connected to the Internet to operate objects remotely.

  • communication

An IoT technology that enables the transmission and reception of data between remote objects.

Three examples of promoting DX using IoT

Here are three examples of using IoT to promote DX.

  1. A case of promoting DX using IoT in agriculture
  2. Example of promoting DX by utilizing IoT in medical care
  3. Example of promoting DX by utilizing IoT in retail

(1) A case of promoting DX using IoT in agriculture

A venture company that provides solutions for agriculture that utilizes plant science and technology. We provide agricultural IoT solutions such as “Agrinote”, a cloud-based farming management system that allows you to record farm work.

(2) A case of promoting DX by utilizing IoT in medical care

Sunstar Co., Ltd. detects movement with a toothbrush equipped with an acceleration sensor and acquires data on how to brush your teeth. The data is compared with the correct way of brushing by a professional dental hygienist, and you can see if you are brushing your teeth correctly.

(3) A case of promoting DX by utilizing IoT in retail

“Trial Company”, which operates supermarkets and drugstores mainly in Kyushu, has developed AI ( artificial intelligence )-equipped cameras to be installed in stores, and has introduced about 1,000 units to actual stores.

It is possible to analyze the inventory status of products, the movements and attributes of people, and it is advantageous for both the store side and the manufacturer side, such as optimizing the product lineup according to customer attributes, the timing of product replenishment, and the display of signage content. .

Let’s introduce IoT and promote DX

This time, we introduced how to promote DX using IoT from the differences and relationships between DX and IoT. IoT is just one means to promote DX. Let’s formulate IoT based on the purpose of promoting DX.
