The lighting industry is in transition from a hardware only industry to a full solution and services industry. With the growing availability of all kinds of data on the one hand, and flexible lighting systems (with sensors and controls) on the other there are many opportunities for new business with services in lighting. It also creates opportunities for new professions, such as in the design of lighting services and in the development of software applications for smart solutions: professions that are new and require different skills than the traditional ones in the hardware related industry.
