“IoT has been called the next big technology revolution, and this Forum is a great opportunity to examine it closely.”
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
Technology innovators and business executives from across market sectors will gather in Dallas, TX, April 21-22, for the Internet of Things (IoT) Global Innovation Forum 2015 (http://www.iotglobalforum.com). Through a series of in-depth presentations and panel sessions, 30+ expert speakers will closely examine the IoT business model, latest technology advances, and success strategies for businesses of all varieties within the emerging Internet of Things ecosphere.
The Internet of Everything is poised to transform the way companies do business, reach their customers, manufacture goods, and create new markets. The Forum in Dallas will examine key applications of IoT technology, including Big Data analytics, operational efficiency, cost savings, energy management, industrial facilities control, cyber security, and effective customer interactions.
According to Gartner Group, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020, generating a staggering amount of data and stimulating tremendous business opportunity for companies across a range of sectors, both industrial and consumer. Indeed, International Data Corp., a research firm specializing in consumer technology, estimates that Internet-connected devices (not including computers, tablets and smartphones) will generate nearly $9 trillion worldwide by 2020.
“This event is a great opportunity for companies to understand the potential of IoT, both for existing business and new market markets,” says Daniel Coran, editor of the Smart Grid Observer and program manager of the IoT Global Innovation Forum. “Companies need to plan now for how this technology revolution will affect them.”
Presenting organizations include Cisco, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank, SAP, Moore Insights & Strategy, Alcatel-Lucent, Silver Spring Networks, ARM, Silicon Labs, NXP Semiconductors, Blue Pillar, EnTouch Controls, WigWag, Bayshore Networks, Schlage, iDevices, Lucid, Daintree Networks, and many others.
Kip Compton, Vice President, IoT Systems & Software Group at Cisco, will deliver the Forum’s opening keynote presentation. Noting that less than one percent of "things" in the physical world are connected to the Internet, Mr. Compton will discuss the incredible opportunity to “connect the unconnected” and what needs to happen next in order to deliver the benefits of IoT on a more massive scale.
Other topics to be addressed at the Forum include: defining the IoT business model, driving IT/OT convergence, sensing-as-a-service, the real-world value of Big Data and IoT, new requirements for building the IoT, smart building advances and applications, securing IoT infrastructures, how to achieve bottom-line opportunities afforded by the emerging IoT, and more.
“Advances in sensor technology, analytics, and communication networks are taking things to a new level,” Coran adds. “IoT has been called the next big technology revolution, and this Forum is a great opportunity to examine at it closely.”
