The digital and data revolutions are transforming market after market, as Marc Andreessen memorably stated, software is ‘eating the world’. These changes are unlocking new ways of creating value and new business models such as the emerging MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service).
The significance of this new service model is its ability to source and manage services as packages based on the consumer’s exact needs. The distinguishing factor for a successful or failing MaaS model is dictated by the intuition of the user experience and how seamlessly it caters to individual end users. As housing providers seek SMART and feasible alternatives for modernising existing housing supply, demand for housing typologies to accommodate each stage of the lifecycle, and the NHS’s push on preventative health and keeping the wider population independent and mobile in their own homes, what is the road map ahead? Can the UK align MaaS and the evolution of housing, how and what are the pitfalls or innovations needed to support the transition?
As part of Connected Places Catapult’s Housing Innovation Week, this event will explore the MaaS and Housing space in a series of short, provocative presentations followed by a panel discussion.
- James Datson, Principal Technologist, Mobility-as-a-Service – Connected Places Catapult
- Fiona Jenkins, Associate at Steer
- Indy Johar, Co-founder & Executive Director of Dark Matter Labs.
- Richard Dilks – Chief Executive for CoMo UK
