About the speakers:

Arjen van de Wetering is a senior Consultant Internet of Things and Continuous Engineering at IBM. The Internet of Things is not some kind of hype, it is a direct result of the current state of technology. It helps companies to innovate their current business and develop new business models. Therefor we call the IoT disruptive. This makes it a very interesting area. As an IoT consultant I discuss the consequences of IoT, build demo's and proof of concepts and help customers and business partners explore and adopt innovative IoT solutions. Some of the projects that I am involved in are the Smart Infra Platform at the Port of Rotterdam, 3D Metal printing at RAMLAB and the Smart Cathodic Protection solution at Gemba.


Peter Westdorp is currently working for Johnson & Johnson and assigned to two global initiatives as program manager. For Data Integrity as well as Serialization he is leading a Community of Practice. In the serialization program which is covering all sectors like pharma, consumer and medical devices sector, the potential of applying IoT solutions is under investigation. These type of investigations also perfectly fits the work Peter is doing as member of the AMO core team within Altran. This core team is developing the AMO methodology to analyze a customers As-Is situation from a supply chain business perspective and to advise on a potential To-Be situation taking into account the strategic objectives defined by the customer and her shareholders wherein solutions like IoT might be a driver or an enabler to achieve these business objectives.
