Today, all types of organisations in many different sectors get confronted with the need for digital transformation. As was Goodplanet at the end of 2017. Together with Proximus they were able to take the first steps into the world of IoT to help them measure the impact of their activities.
Goodplanet is a non-profit organisation that is active in environmental education and sensitization for 20 years now. They work mainly with schools and companies to educated and sensitize them in different environmental fields. Their main topics are nature, food and circular economies.
In the organisation, several employees are managing projects from the office in Brussels. Other collaborators are active in the field to do coaching and raise awareness. “We reach about 500,000 people a year with our many different activities”, says Clément Magos, responsible for innovation and IT projects at Goodplanet.
SAP has an IoT platform within its rich portfolio that offers strong data analysis & reporting (e.g. with the leonardo solutions). The platform manages devices from multiple origins and consolidates sensor & meta data.
Proximus offers theMy Things API as part of the LoRa network. MyThings allows you to administrate the LoRa sensors (f.e. with decoding profiles and auto activation of sensors) and basic data sending. Proximus EnCo makes LoRa data integration possible in your own applications via easy scripting.
Therefore EnCo’s CloudEngine is extended with different modules and a pattern that allows you to integrate on both platforms. Of course, without loosing the flexibility and still matching the security requirements of both systems. To support this, we have added 2 modulesto CloudEngine that allows you to script your engine based on the input of data coming from MyThings.
