Data is the new oil. The Internet of Things (IoT) technology enables the usage of every data point to achieve growth goals and optimize business processes. But what is IoT? The IoT describes a concept or program where an object is able to transmit data over a network without the help of computers and human devices. 

The IoT works by using an argument from a compiled programming language algorithm. Each formed argument will create an interaction that will help the hardware or machine function, so it can work automatically without human assistance.

The IoT is an important part of this digital era. In 'The Future of Jobs Report 2020', the World Economic Forum estimated 85 million jobs will be replaced by machines that have artificial intelligence (AI) built-in by 2025. Besides, around 43.2% of businesses expect to reduce their workforce as a result of the implementation of breakthrough technology, including the Internet of Things (IoT).

At the same time, the deployment of automated machines and algorithms is expected to create 97 million new jobs with the necessary skills. Next question is, will your company be ready and able to change?

Indeed, growing your business through IoT is required. In Indonesia itself, there are a number of IoT solutions providers. But as the country’s largest telecom company, Telkom is here to lift your pain and perplexity in integrating IoT into your operations. With its end-to-end IoT solutions provider Antares, Telkom is ready to reinforce your business transformation via its two solutions namely the IoT platform and the IoT connectivity.

Antares will help to empower enterprises to optimize, grow, and transform their businesses with IoT solutions. This Indonesia’s leading IoT solutions provider provides three sub-products namely the Antares Platform, Antares Connectivity, and Antares Solution.
