Connecting your business: practical steps to new revenue streams with IoT
Venue: Devonshire Club
Organisations all over the world are looking to use new and existing endpoints to create revolutionary business processes and realise cost savings or revenue from IoT projects. As such, it is more important than ever for these projects to succeed and progress from the sandbox and into production, without a hitch.
There are three best practice principals at the foundation of all successful IoT projects: rapid deployment, open and connected architecture, and a secure, compliant environment.
Rapid deployment of IoT projects depends on connecting to ‘things’ quickly and securely, then gathering usable data to make decisions. There are multiple protocols and standards to conform to, so an open environment that can conform to several industry standards is key. And with the opportunity to connect an ever-increasing number of end points, it’s important that your environment is secure by design.
Join us to explore these ideas and discover how to connect your business and create new revenue streams. Hear from IoT evangelist Anthony Sayers on why each of these principals is important; discuss with your industry peers how to better monetise your own IoT initiatives; and learn how other organisations have succeeded in scaling their IoT pilots to proven business processes.
