“The Trend of IoT and How It Will Transform The Next Generation Digital Business”


While many early adoption scenarios of the IoT are for consumer markets, the IoT devices and technologies originally designed for consumers will shift into a powerful force to determine an organization’s speed and level of success to become a digital business. In addition, while organizations span industries recognize the long term impact of the IoT, their attitudes to the IoT vary significantly by industry, company size, and region. In this session, we will discuss what are the key technology and service oriented building blocks that can enable enterprises quickly create self-adaptive, scalable, and reliable real-world IoT solutions and deploy business models that take advantage of the IoT.
