09:20AM - Day 1
- What are the newest innovations within IoT software, hardware and platforms and how are they impacting the current market?
- What will companies have to do to still be viable in a 2022 IoT marketplace?
- Predictions for which sectors will see growth in the next 5 years and which ones will fall by the wayside?
- Role of other disruptive tech like AI, machine learning and blockchain to IoT.
Solo: IoT Hardware – Sensors, Batteries and Actuators
The building block of any IoT network is the ‘thing’ within the internet of things, that generates or actions the data. This talk will address what the fundamental aspects of choosing the correct IoT hardware are, variables such as OS and remote management options and what effect this decision can have throughout the IoT value chain.
Legacy development approaches and tools simply aren’t built to handle the enormous flow of real-time, event-driven, data streams generated by IoT devices, existing systems, and people.
Chief Product and Marketing Officer
10:30AM - Day 1
In this session, learn how the revolution in event-driven application platforms enable innovative companies to develop, deploy and run real-time enterprise applications – enabled by the IoT – with dramatically reduced time-to-market, significantly lowered development and maintenance costs, and maximised agility in the face of requirements for continuous innovation and digital transformation.
Platform selection for your IoT project?
- There are over 400 IoT platforms available in the current market of every size and shape, how do you choose between this bewildering array?
- Who should you talk to before making this decision?
- What is the main difference between the big players offerings and smaller more specialised management systems?
- Discussion of the key considerations when choosing a platform; provisioning and authentication, configuration and control, monitoring and diagnostics and software updates and maintenance.
- Bottom up vs top down approaches in selection.
Case Study: BSI
Business Development Director – IoT

Testing in the IoT ecosystem
- What new approaches need to be taken to testing software and hardware within the IoT environment?
- How to move testing outside of the laboratory.
- What actually needs to be tested? Connectivity, security, safety and reliability.
- Discussion of real world examples of testing IoT devices and platforms, potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.
(Cross-)Platformitization and the Role of Software in IoT
Senior Vice President, Strategy
The Qt Company
01:00PM - Day 1
Qt is the faster, smarter way to create innovative devices, modern UIs & applications for multiple screens. Cross-platform software development at its best
Panel: Scalability and Interoperability – what drives insights?
- What or who is going to be the big disruptor within the current interoperability market?
- What are ways to enable interoperability to scale from device-to-device and application-to-application all the way to system-to-system, infrastructure-to-infrastructure, sector-to-sector, region-to-region, and above for a truly global IoT?
- Issues with scalability in data modelling for the IoT; maintaining data quality whilst keeping analytics cost effective and timely.
- Importance of structures in scalability – the need for simple but dynamic structures to enable real time data analytics.
Case Study: Massive IoT from the service provider perspective
Chief IoT Officer and VP Digital Innovation
02:50PM - Day 1
10:00AM - Day 1
The increasing number of connected devices means that there is an increasing need for networks that can cover massive amounts of connections per cell, at low cost and using low power. Using LTE-m or NB-IoT, several Telco’s are entering this market, but what are the advantages and disadvantages of this type of technology over other LPWA networks like LoRa? And how does being an established Telco help you connect with customers in this crowded market. Finally, we will discuss the future of LTE-m and NB-IoT with the introduction of 5G IoT networks looming.
Finding the Signal in the Noise – Thermal Sensors Role in Making Smarter Buildings, Grids, Vehicles and More
03:20PM - Day 1
In this session, Seek Thermal’s Tim LeBeau delves into the world of thermal sensors and how access to real-time radiometric temperatures of machines, grids, motors, conveyor belts, even trains or trucks, will re-define predictive and preventive maintenance through real-time, clean and cost-effective data.
What are thermal sensors? How do they work? How are they different from the way temperatures have been traditionally monitored? Just as importantly, how do they talk to software to ultimately monitor and predict the health of elements, in real-time, in the Industrial Internet of Things?
