IoT is, by nature, disruptive. It is impacting businesses across sectors and increasing the focus on delivering production-ready connectivity. HARMAN’s Sanjay Dhawan will discuss why 2018 will be the year enterprise truly embraces IoT as a reality and faces the need establish an IoT strategy that flourishes within the constructs of the fluid connected economy. Within this discussion, he will address how:
o It is crucial to understand the user journey for both customers and employees. IoT shifts constantly, so a stable understanding of what drives users will illuminate the path to relaying the value of your business/product in a way they will understand. If enterprise doesn’t translate data in a user friendly manner, the value of your IoT investment is lost.
o Instating a comprehensive IoT strategy will fundamentally alter your business. In order to reap the full benefits of IoT for their organization, enterprise leaders must understand the scope of a technology’s application, what deploying the corresponding IoT ecosystem will cost and the timeline until the organization can generate a return on investment.
o IoT’s value is greater than the pool of data it collects. It is the way the enterprise distributes this data that will impact internal and external successes. Analytics need to be communicated simply and clearly, and these communications need to happen in a timely fashion, or businesses won't be able to access the value IoT can bring.

Multi-modal transportation is a current topic of discussion in the IoT and Smart Cities world. Innovation is key to drive change when it comes to transportation planning and execution. This panel of experts in logistics, operations, robotics and manufacturing bring together a model that will revolutionize the way people get around in their cities. By partnering, these companies have developed an innovative and scalable solution utilizing neighborhood electric vehicles to connect people to public transportation as well as getting accurate positioning system in place (Smart Roads). By adding such a service, communities can change their attitudes about using their cars on a daily basis, reducing carbon emissions, traffic congestion and driving economic re-development in transit or food deserts.
Creating the next generation of Public Services in Housing, Health, Transportation, Environment, Education
Starting with People (People’s portal, events, involvement etc)
Workshops (Harmonizing, policies, processes, politicians, people)
Strategic Board (Formal (CEO’s, Ministers, Directors) and Informal ordinary people + Tech companies + Education Sector + Private Sector)
Working Group (Combining the above of formal and informal to create working pilot projects that are scalable solutions across UK, Europe and the World).
Journey Book (Creation of a Handbook of next generation of public services) an easy pick up guide to creating best service delivery practice for 2025 onwards.
Our pilots starting in 2018 – Signing of 3 franchises with different cities to begin the above implementation (those signing will join live via Skype from Europe and UK)
Creation of services that are designed by multi-stakeholders (as per Strategic Board above both formal and informal)
Lower costs and greater efficiencies using Digital Technologies to improve the quality of life for all
Creating Social Change at all levels to bring everyone forward together
Using technology to support delivery of next generation of public services better
Our examples of these
Housing (demonstration of our Housing portal showing how to bring Housing Communities together to tackle safety, security, loneliness, creating opportunities, improving health and well-being, creating stronger communities). Thus reducing costs on Municipal and Health authorities, creating greater empowerment at local level and in turn creating improvement of quality of life for all.

IIOT and Industry 4.0 come with many benefits, but also exposes the critical and sensitive industrial control systems. In this session we will review top ICS security challenges and discuss what can be done to protect these networks against cyber attacks, malicious insiders and human error.
Where does the data come from that helps make decisions to run a company’s operations? The automation system. A smart manufacturing approach needs a robust Industrial IoT architecture that provides the integration of smart devices, the control platform, design and operational software on a single secure network. Rockwell Automation is helping customers lower the barrier of entry for digital transformation initiatives with a connected enterprise. Leveraging information throughout operations is creating new value streams. Today customers can leverage contemporary cloud and analytic platforms to digitize their enterprise. Modern approaches break through boundaries not considered before, allowing innovative new approaches to productivity and new markets.
