Adapting subscription services to the industrial market to improve customer engagement and solutions

Marcellus Buchheit, President and CEO of Wibu-Systems USA, spoke with Scott MacKenzie, host of the Industrial Talk podcast, at the Q1 meeting of the Object Management Group in Reston, VA, USA. Marcellus offered interesting insights into subscription-based services, drawing a parallel between consumer-based subscriptions like those presented for products at the Consumer Electronics Show and similar business models in the industrial and medical world. For example, Marcellus pointed out the advantages of a subscription service for an expensive medical device, which allows the healthcare provider to avoid the heavy upfront costs of the system and pay only on a monthly basis or a usage basis. He also noted that it is advantageous for both parties to maintain ongoing engagement to keep the system up and running as it should for the service provider while continuing the revenue stream for the manufacturer.

Social entrepreneurial commitment: "It is not enough just to pay taxes"

While heavily involved in pioneering technology innovations, Wibu-Systems and its founders who have been managing the company since its inception almost 35 years ago, stand up for traditional values, i.e. children as the best investment in the collective future, education as the key foundation of any human development, cultivating arts to build rounded personalities, respect for the environment, and giving back to local communities. As Oliver Winzenried, CEO of WIBU-SYSTEMS AG explains to Heise, these are the major company tenets that result in impactful campaigns, such as those led in cooperation with Kinderhilfe Lateinamerika e.V. to support safer childhood, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to promote R&D activities and sustainable concepts, the Canisiushausverein to foster local volunteering actions, and the University of Music Karlsruhe. With the most recent venture, the House of IT Security, the company is entering a new stage where it shares its technology and business skills with startups.

Proactive actions to ensuring trustworthiness with your digital transformation strategy

Watch this video podcast of Marcellus Buchheit, Wibu-Systems USA’s president and CEO, and Scott Mackenzie, host of the popular IndustrialTalk podcast series, that was recorded live at the Q4 2022 Industry IoT Consortium meeting held in Austin, TX. Marcellus is the co-chair of the IIC’s Trustworthiness Working Group, dedicated to exploring the five aspects of trustworthiness – safety, security, privacy, reliability, and resilience – relevant to IIoT and the IIC's vision of an IIoT ecosystem. In this episode, Marcellus sheds some light on how trust and trustworthiness are crucial elements to ascertain confidence in the proper operation of industrial systems, particularly those that can have detrimental safety and environmental impact on people and society at large if mishandled. The risks and negative consequences are even greater with increasingly networked and connected industries.

Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast

The IIoT Spotlight Podcast shines a light on Industrial IoT solutions that are impacting businesses today. Every episode they interview an expert about a specific IoT use case. Their goal is to provide insight into the planning and implementation of IIoT systems, from new business models to technology architecture selection to data ownership and security.

The IIoT Spotlight is produced by IoT ONE, an information platform that provides market insight, partner development, and go-to-market support for technology providers, end users, and investors.

Erik Walenza, CEO of IoT ONE, recently interviewed Oliver Winzenried, our CEO and founder. Their talk covered so many aspects that it had to be split into three separate episodes:

IIoT Security - An Interview with WIBU's Oliver Winzenried

In part one, Oliver shares the mission of the company, the areas in which Wibu-Systems is excelling, and how its technology fits into the industrial digital transformation. The recent spate of cyberattacks, including the Wannacry ransomware attack that crippled countless institutions worldwide, has put cybersecurity at the top of people’s minds. Wibu-Systems’ technology fits the game and provides ready-to-use solutions for the green and brown field alike.

IIoT Security - An Interview with WIBU's Oliver Winzenried

In part two, Oliver goes on to explain how cybersecurity cannot be compartmentalized in any market vertical, but is agnostic for any industrial and technological sector. In the B2B space, there is still a lot of delay in terms of expectations and the adoption of the new technologies because of ROI and security concerns. That’s where a security-by-design approach and feature-realized business models, not just for consumers, but also for industrial applications, have the potential to fuel a license-based economy.
