Anda juga bisa menggunakan Linkedin sebagai media promosi e-book.

Harga e-book sendiri beragam, untuk e-book fiksi dengan halaman yang tidak banyak bisa berharga Rp 25.000 sampai Rp 50.000. Sedangkan untuk e-book non fiksi bisa lebih mahal karena proses pembuatannya lebih susah, yaitu bisa mencapai Rp 1.000.000 atau lebih.

Mengenal Design Thinking Lebih Dekat

design thinking

Design Thinking adalah proses pemecahan masalah kreatif yang berpusat pada manusia yang memberikan “bagaimana cara” untuk berpikir “di luar kotak”. Ini adalah proses lima langkah yang dibuat terkenal oleh David Kelley, pendiri IDEO dan Stanford Design School. Design Thinking memberikan prinsip dan strategi untuk memanfaatkan potensi kreatif Anda dan pemangku kepentingan Anda untuk memecahkan masalah yang paling sulit dan tantangan.

Design Thinking sangat cocok untuk masalah fuzzy, tidak terdefinisi, di mana tidak ada solusi yang jelas tampaknya berfungsi. Dikembangkan oleh Stanford d.school (School of Design), Design Thinking membuat pengajaran inovasi dan perubahan budaya organisasi dimungkinkan dengan memecahkan pemecahan masalah menjadi proses lima langkah:

Empati – Pertama, orang harus memahami orang-orang yang Anda rancang solusi. Masalah jarang sekali milik Anda sendiri; untuk merancang bagi pengguna akhir, seseorang harus membangun empati untuk siapa mereka dan apa yang penting bagi mereka.

Definisikan – Berdasarkan wawasan yang dikumpulkan, langkah ‘define’ berfokus pada secara eksplisit mengekspresikan masalah yang harus diatasi melalui usaha. Pernyataan masalah yang dibuat akan digunakan sebagai loncatan penghasil solusi yang memberikan fokus dan inspirasi.

Ideate – Pada langkah ketiga, Design Thinker fokus pada generasi ide. Di sinilah seseorang harus melangkah di luar solusi yang jelas dan meningkatkan potensi inovasi dari solusi yang ditetapkan dengan memanfaatkan perspektif kolektif dan kekuatan tim.

Prototype – Prototyping sangat penting untuk memindahkan ide-ide dari kepala seseorang dan ke dunia fisik. Pemecah masalah harus menguji dan memperbaiki solusi dengan pengguna tanpa menginvestasikan banyak waktu dan sumber daya di depan.

Test – Menguji dan menerima umpan balik adalah kesempatan untuk memperbaiki solusi dan membuatnya lebih baik. Langkah ini adalah kesempatan untuk memvalidasi empati tim melalui observasi dan keterlibatan – sering kali menghasilkan hasil yang tidak diharapkan.

Why a City Needs to Implement Smart City

smart city

Infographic : Smart Digital Life Architecture

Why a city needs an integrated smart city concept. One of the main reasons is because the human population is increasing sharply. Predicted, the world population in 2050 will touch 8.5 billion people, of whom 66% are women, and 34% are men.

In 2015 alone, the world’s population reached 6 billion people. Imagine, within a period of ten years, the population increased by 2.5 billion. WOW!

“Increased population encourages urbanization from village to city. The growth of urbanization within 64 years, from 1950-2014 reached 523%, “said Adhitya.

Increased urbanization of course gives birth to urban or urban problems. Starting from waste, education, transpotasi, socioeconomic, natural disasters caused by human activities, and health. All these problems can be found in the younger generation of cities in Indonesia, such as Jakarta.

“On the other hand, an increasingly modern and well-established society, has a myriad of expectations, such as a comfortable living environment and work, adequate public areas, easier travel, shopping experience, etc.”

Thus, continued Adhitya, the solution to meet expectations and minimize the impact of urbanization is to present the concept of smart city aka smart city. What is that?

Smart city is a concept that explores an intelligent city order that plays a role in facilitating the public to get information quickly and precisely. In addition, the concept of smart city is also presented as an answer for efficient management of resources.

“You could say, the concept of this smart city is the integration of information directly with urban communities,” said Adhitya.

Six Smartcity Services
In its development, there are six Smart City services that can be developed in a city, among others:

1. Smart Governance
Administration of public services based on information technology that interact government interaction with citizens and business sector, and decision-making based on real time data.

2. Smart Economy
E-business and e-commerce services that boost the economy of the people

3. Smart Mobility
Intelligent system implementation to support public transport, logistics, and convenience services for car, bicycle, and pedestrian users.

4. Smart Environment
Utilization of renewable energy sources, monitoring systems and pollution control, green building.

5. Smart People
The intelligent community because of the opportunities of education and the development of extensive skills with the application of systems and technology

6. Smart Living
Life pattern or lifestyle is smart, healthy, and safe, supported by good environmental quality dwelling.

Smartcity also includes supporting elements called smart environment, ranging from citizens, applications, services, infrastructure, industry, government, and regulation.

iBeacon and Internet of Things

Apple iBeacon, which was launched on 2013, was one of leap of the company in Internet of Things industry. Beside smartwatch, iBeacon will be one of devices that will support the development of Internet of Things. Some IoT Platform have added beacon in their service to ease developers manage the services.

iBeacon is based on Bluetooth low energy proximity sensing by transmitting a universally unique identifier picked up by a compatible app or operating system. The identifier and several bytes sent with it can be used to determine the device’s physical location, track customers, or trigger a location-based action on the device such as a check-in on social media or a push notification.

While typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a smart grid, and expanding to the areas such as smart cities.

iBeacon can be a simple step to start the deployment since it’s already using Bluetooth and people have been familiar with Bluetooth in their smartphone.

Top 3 Cloud Hosting Providers

Cloud Hosting Providers are mostly provide various features to help the developers managing the application they build. Cloud hosting is also termed as clustered hosting. It’s a hosting service that is delivered from a network of multiple and physically connected servers. There are many types of hosting available; cloud hosting is a new form of hosting. It enables the clients to host their websites in a more powerful, reliable, and scalable way. It is provided to customers through a system with multiple servers in addition to some virtual resources. In accordance to Virtualization, a cloud has the limitless processing power, and users have the ability to scale up and can add new servers. Cloud servers are tuned together to overcome problems like network fluctuations, traffic overload, server drop down, server crashes. The use of multiple server increases the processing power of the website rather depending upon a single server.

cloud-hosting-5

In addition to the concept of Mobile Cloud Computing server, it also means that the website will not experience any downtimes as it is the case with traditional server hosting. Cloud server hosting is extremely useful because it does not restrict people to the limit of application and hardware. The main advantage of cloud website hosting is the reliability that comes from the use of a group of servers rather than just relying on one. Even the space will be limited in traditional hosts that will slow down your site. However, with cloud server hosting, you will not encounter any of these problems because users will get extra power and resources and with this you can successfully run your business over the internet and enjoy unhindered connectivity.

Industrial Revolution of Internet of Things (IoT) and Its Impact on Fleet Management

iot-platform

Fleet Management Industry including trucking, forwarding, and package delivery is one of businesses that has been existed since the 80’s era. It was started with animals but now it’s growing and using technology.

In this industry, access and accuracy of the delivery is main value for the company.

Technology makes this industry grow better. Fleet management, more than a usual transportation, will get advantages of using connectivity and data from IoT Platform.

Fleet management works out of independent system of asset monitoring, route management, and maintenance report that are connected each other in this business.

Internet of Things Impact on Fleet Management

With new technology keeps coming in this digital era or what’s most popular now is Internet of Things.

IoT gives 3 impacts in Fleet Management Industry:

  1. Eficiency: For driver, asset monitoring, smart delivery, and real time access can help you make sure driver and vehicle operate optimaly. Saving works that needed paper or needed manual work from human.
  2. Low Cost Operational: For gas price, idle time, accident, and Disobeydience in majority of finance management. Controlling these functions with fleet management solution can help you reduce higher cost.
  3. Adding Value for Customers: Fleet management can quickly transfer data automatically from their vehicles. A real time solution is also provided while taking decision for their customers

We understand various technologies come giving many advantages and solutions. Just like RFID and NFC that’s usually used for fleet management solution.

But there’s a limit in RFID and NFC. Cubeacon comes giving a better solution. Using iBeacon technology, Cubeacon can be used as in many solutions for fleet management.

By using Cubeacon, we can turn your device online, easy to tracked in real time and connected to Internet. Cubeacon also has flexible reader access using smartphone, or using stand alone reader from Cubeacon.

Potential for Internet of Things Business

iot-platform

Right now, tons of sensors and devices are being applied to start a massive Internet of Things with IoT Platform Deployment around the world. People are building the internet of Things and ready for huge wave in the future.

So what can you actually do with Internet of Things today?

IBM Voice has stated one of major change to the world with Internet of Things. The only thing that keeps changing every year. Of course, weather.

Based on IBM Voice on Forbes, nothing and no one in this world isn’t affected by the weather. It changes everything. From you mood to the way you dress and from crops to flight plan. Sounds about right, yes? Weather gives influential impact to our life and the way we live it.

That’s the reason why it’s a great idea to combine Internet of Things with weather. The combination allows us to connect weather with other pieces of data to give us a richer source of information. It puts every piece of data into a new context and allows organizations to learn at an accelerated rate, transform how they run their businesses and benefit the lives of people.

Or take the connected car. Currently a GPS system helps get us from point A to point B in the fastest time possible, taking into account traffic patterns, road closing and other factors.

But what if weather was added to the equation? Now rather than just avoiding bumper-to-bumper traffic, drivers are alerted to approaching rainstorms, reported patches of black ice or sun glare. It’s information like this that helps eliminate potentially costly accidents and possible injury.

Even greater news for you all who already installed Thermostat in your home. Thermostat with Internet of Things can do greater job. We know that Thermostat can turn heat up and down when we need it or not, but by connecting in weather data, these devices could turn on the central air system automatically — based on suddenly clearing skies that have hit the area. Now when you get home on a 90-degree day, your house is at an ideal temperature.

IoT Platform Should be Your Next Startup Product

iot platform

Currently there are 22 Billion devices connected to the Internet by this year. It is not really a surprising number since a internet user itself reached by 3.2 Billion Internet User by 2015 worldwide. Increasing from 738 million on 2000.

How fast the internet user grow is the key to fast penetration to IoT product. For example is the first time Thermostat launched. It was a hype for people since it controls our home and help home owner to maintain their home condition. It gets to the market easier since it can be controlled through smartphone. Which is something that literally everybody has. So that’s the beginning of how so easy Internet of Things product hit the market since the Internet itself is in everybody’s hand.

Looking how fast Internet of Things grow, big tech company takes the chance in creating a platform where everyone can build their own IoT Product.

Amazon with their AWS IoT promises its developers to connect billion device in one platform, IBM Watson which allows developers build IoT for retail, home, vehicle and etc.

Everyone is building a platform to make IoT developers easily build their own product. The IoT market size reached USD 130.33 Billion in 2015 and forecast to be USD 883.55 Billion by 2022. A big market to start innovation.

If you are about to build your own IoT device, an IoT Platform is a good start. With the crowd IoT Market, the only way to make your IoT product hit the market faster is to cut down the development process. IoT Platform provides features that can help you out with the development process.

The features that are provided by IoT Platform are mostly are helping developers cut down development process such as connecting to multi devices, secure integration, data storage, and etc. The features apparently creates various IoT implementations.

One of many IoT platforms that provides IoT solution is Mesosfer. As a platform for developers to connect their IoT Devices, Mesosfer also provides service to help developers build Mobile Apps.

IoT product such as thermostat will require mobile apps to actually work. If IoT developers build in different platform for both solution, in Mesosfer they can build both solution in one platform.

Cutting off the development process and budget as well especially for startup before they start launching their product. Features provided in Mesosfer is quite similar with other IoT Platform and Mobile Backend as a Service to build mobile apps. Analytic is provided by Mesosfer to make sure developers keep updated about their application performance.

The IoT Platform market reached $298M by 2015 and forecast to become $1.6B by 2021. With a promising market, IoT Platform is a new field. Even other competitors are part of big tech company, they just launched their platform last year. So a chance for startup to be great IoT Platform is still available.

Build IoT Implementation using Tizen Backend as a Service

Tizen, a new OS developed by Intel and the Linux Foundation Samsung develops its own mobile operating system. 

Tizen OS is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and the GNU C Library implementing the Linux API, works on a wide range of devices. Tizen is said to be the next Samsung OS because Samsung wants to reduce its dependence on Android and Google 

tizen-apps

Tizen works in most devices we use daily such as smartphones, smartwatches, Blu-ray players, printers, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart cameras, smart TVs, PCs, and smart home appliances. Which is why it is a big chance for developers to build their own IoT devices with Tizen Mobile Backend App.

For developers, they can build various implementation of Internet of Things or application for Tizen OS. Tizen right now has started all the campaigns to gather developers building implementation for Tizen.

Not just an application, Tizen also works in many devices for Internet of Things implementation. IoT with a huge market can be promising for developers to start using Tizen.

There are two types of applications in Tizen, web and native. The web application is basically a website that is packed in the form of application. It is built using web technologies such as HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Web application is using Tizen Web Framework to interact with native subsystem.

Web application is using Web API, which became the standard structure of web applications with basic elements. Web API allows developers to build applications using web programming languages. Similar with web applications in general, Tizen Web API consists of index.html file as root application, as well as some directories to store the asset files such as CSS, JavaScript, images and sounds.

Native application development is using C programming language and able to access some native features in more specific details such as camera, GPS, and accelerometer directly. Native API provides a lot of interface with features that are commonly found in mobile devices, as well as optimizing of the limited resources.

Tizen strongly supports developers who build applications using HTML5. Even the official guidelines for developing applications using HTML5 on Tizen has been available since it is released. Different with Android, Google officially supports Android application development using Java. To develop Android apps using HTML5, you have to use a third-party developer.

Developing applications for Tizen can be achieved by using Tizen SDK. Tizen SDK consists of a set of tools for developing native applications and web. SDK released in developer.tizen.org consists of IDE, Emulators, code samples, and documentation. Tizen SDK can be used in Windows, Ubuntu Linux, and Mac OS X. IDE in Tizen SDK is actually Eclipse that has been customized to ease developers developing applications for Tizen. If you do not want to use Tizen IDE, we can still develop Tizen application as long as it follows Tizen terms and condition.

Tizen application can be applied to four categories of devices called “profiles”. The four category is mobile, wearable, in-vehicle infotainment and smart TV.
