IoT Business Fundamentals Workshop

This full-day workshop consists of two parts. In the morning, we cover IoT technology from a value-centric perspective. This view prioritizes value creation and more fully explains the interconnectivity and dependencies between IoT system components. In the afternoon, we cover IoT business. This begins with how IoT deepens the customer relationship and then moves into the core of business: value creation and how to monetize that value using IoT business models. After finishing this workshop, students will understand the fundamentals needed to start developing their company’s IoT technology and strategy.
