Delivering Tactical and Targeted IoT Investments Across The Business – Ensuring Sustainable and Profitable IoT

The perennial problems associated with the IoT (security, high fragmentation of ecosystem, breath of protocols and standards) are framing newer challenges associated with the capabilities of a business’ current cloud architectures, edge architectures, and even the CPU capability of the hardware used. And that’s without considering the myriad data regulation, protection and privacy issues which will invariably arise down the line.

For business and technology leaders with a finite budget, but many IoT investment options, this can cause headaches around where to invest next, and whether to double-down on existing IoT investments. This session is designed as a deep dive for these leaders who need to deliver ROI from technology implementations, but are unsure where to invest next.

IT/OT Integration: The Keys to Unlocking ROI Promised by The IoT

The benefits of IT/OT integration are clear. Whether that be more efficient workflows, enhanced security, or simply reduced operating costs. However, besides the obvious challenges associated with integrating various legacy and connected technologies together, there Is also a huge problem bringing together the business functions (IT and OT) and arriving at a solution which is sensible and amenable to both parties.

This session discusses a case study where this has been made possible – examining both the technology implementation choices, through to the business change that was ignited across the different business functions.

Panel Discussion: Will We Ever Arrive at a Decentralized, Democratic IoT? Or is It Time for Business Leaders to Pick a Platform and Show Their Cards?

The internet is, by its nature, open source. A widely available, single platform, with an abundance of information. And whilst the IoT is, in many respects, intended to mirror this, the reality is very different for the Internet of Things.

Open source is, admittedly, making movements, but there are still many complaints about the quality and sustainability of open standards, platforms, and software.

This session is for leaders who are part of the discussion around whether their company should treat vendor lock-in, interoperability challenges (etc) as part of the game, or whether they should avoid making a solid bet until the platform – and broader IoT – market matures further.
