What hasn’t been said about the Internet of Things lately. It’s the next big thing, it opens up new business opportunities, it’s changing our daily life. But honestly, only a few of us believe it. Most of us are perfectly happy to patiently wait and see what happens. But now the IoT really has gotten serious – no, not to see, but to taste: Tchibo now offers networked coffee machines.
Individual data management – for coffee…
When it comes to Germans’ favorite caffeine drink, there is no uniform opinion on how to prepare it. Pure black, with milk and sugar or with creamy milk froth – individual preparations have no limits. This is where Tchibo comes in. You-Rista from Tchibo’s Qbo brand looks like any other coffee machine with a capsule system. But then you notice square capsules instead of the usual round ones. Only at second glance does the real highlight shine forth: it connects to the Internet through WiFi and is controlled by an app. In addition to some pre-defined variants, the Qbo app also offers you all your own creations of coffee, milk and milk froth – no matter which You-Rista machine you have on your WiFi connection.
This kind of networking for individual coffee enjoyment is enabled by the possibility of cloud-based profiles. Through the use of cloud sync in data management, Tchibo offers users the option to directly receive updates, news and their own coffee recipes via cloud services. This type of flexible data management requires high data availability as well as the compliance and storage of data according to German data protection guidelines. Full service IT providers can offer decisive individualized product solutions with this kind of data management.
… and with a company network
An individual, data-centric approach to data management from a single source can already be utilized by companies today. Full IT service providers offer individual solutions for the management of their own data landscape, from a hybrid cloud to managed services and colocation systems. Offered services should be individualized and adapted to the needs of the customer. In our age of digitization and networking, value-adding storage, processing and transmission of data has become decisive for success.
These requirements should be taken into account by IT decision-makers when choosing the right IT service provider. Flexibility, modularity and comprehensive data networking are best provided to companies from a single source. DARZ offers the necessary infrastructure and managed services to realize this. In this way, we are able to do for company data what Tchibo does with coffee data, providing the technical basis for individual solutions for sustainable data management. We refine company data with sustainable and individualized IT consulting. So your individualized coffee can be enjoyed in peace.
