Announcing the October B2B IT Forum on the Internet of Things
Industry analysts have predicted 26 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020, creating a several trillion dollar market in Internet of Things (IoT) goods and services. With claims that this sector could usher in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s important to look beyond the hype and better define the opportunities and challenges presented by IoT.
The widespread emergence of the Internet of Things will take time, but as more objects gain intelligence through embedded sensors and processors, we are getting closer to realizing the full potential of this technology. As we head down this path, there are many questions confronting us. Is the network infrastructure suitable for IoT? Who owns the data generated by smart objects in our home? Do we trust the IoT to play a role in critical infrastructure (Do we have security ready to protect those assets)? What’s realistic for the Internet of Things in 2014 and beyond?
Our next B2B IT Forum on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 will outline the current state of the IoT market and will discuss the near-term opportunities for innovative companies to embrace IoT across various industry segments.
Along with our co-hosts INEX Advisors, we will examine several case studies that uncover IoT’s applications, business models and monetization, and data policy and privacy.
As with previous Forums, we expect a sold out crowd, and require that you register ahead of time.
