Pre-Keynote Briefing: IoT in Asia - The Calm Before the Storm
  • Charles Anderson - Founder, Charles Reed Anderson & Associates

The size and scale of the IoT opportunity in Asia Pacific is staggering. Not only is it home to 4.5 Billion people, but it also has an emerging middle class of nearly 1 Billion people. Why is this important? Because it means that opportunities abound. In Asia, we are not just leveraging the latest technologies and solutions to progress the advanced markets like Japan, Korea and Singapore, we also leverage proven technologies and solutions to help countries in emerging markets digitize their society and reach their full potential.

In this presentation we:

  • examine the latest industry trends to describe both the opportunities and challenges the IoT ecosystem faces when engaging with the region’s IoT decision makers,
  • explain how new business, operational and financial models are required to drive IoT adoption, and
  • provide “best practice” examples of how innovative, cross-industry collaborations can deliver digital transformation and business value.

Enabling Industrial IoT at Scale
  • Bernd Gross - SVP of IoT & Cloud, Software AG

Recent market research shows that whereas nearly 90 percent of executives surveyed feel the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is critical to their companies’ success, only 16 percent have a comprehensive IIoT roadmap. 

This presentation considers this gap by offering self-service IoT solutions to enable organizations to develop their own IoT applications and solutions, and reviews how to support customers, partners and suppliers through innovative, collaborative digital business models and “smart” IoT products and services.
