VIRTUAL Fireside Chat: Embracing the Digital Transformation Journey (an industry approach)

  • Establishing a digital strategy – creating strong foundations and looking at the long-term strategy, not quick wins.
  • Technology evaluation and innovation – finding the right solution to your problem and avoiding the one size fits all approach.
  • Building adoption – moving from pilot to implementation.
  • Insights as the key to optimisation – building processes to evaluate data.
  • Closing the skills and learning gap – encouraging teams to embarrass the transformation.
  • Understanding that optimisation only comes from correct implementation.

VIRTUAL Keynote: Building a Fully Connected, Intelligent World

  • We are witnessing an unprecedented technological revolution happening before our eyes, faster than any other in history. We know it as the “Internet of Things (IoT)” which is a network of interconnected intelligent devices that will make our lives more efficient, safer, and more sustainable. A technology that is promised to change our lives for the better. It was further proved in the pandemic year 2020, where we witnessed how our dependency on technology has evolved from just smartphones to smart devices in every aspect of our daily lives.
  • This keynote focuses on how the world’s largest telecommunication leader, Huawei is driving this change in the IoT industry to make people’s day-to-day lives better and smarter. Huawei is making giant leaps in the IoT industry, by offering a smooth user experience and seamless connectivity among billions of connected devices. Huawei’s vision is to offer a secure, scalable, easy-to-use infrastructure, and most importantly make significant contributions to the open-source ecosystem.
  • Come join us for this keynote where Suhail will show you how Huawei is building a fully connected, intelligent world.

VIRTUAL: Simplifying IoT Connectivity Activation with the Power of eSIM

Do you want to simplify connectivity deployment for your IoT devices? Flexibly at the factory or in the field? Do you need to keep devices reliably connected for a decade or more?

IoT demand is driving an urgent need to simplify and speed the process of getting and keeping everything connected. However, deploying geographically diverse IoT installations, managing multiple product SKUs, and provisioning service with the best mobile network operator can be overwhelming.

This talk is about solving today’s challenges for IoT connectivity activation with the power of eSIM – and a little bit of ‘magic’.

Turn traditional methods of IoT device service provisioning and updating on its head and learn how to bring new levels of service digitisation, optimised logistics, efficient device installation, and network resilience to industrial IoT solutions.

VIRTUAL: Real-Time Device Tracking with Digital Twins

Real-time device tracking has become essential for today’s intelligent IoT devices. In numerous applications, including telematics, security, smart cities, and health care, real-time tracking quickly identifies emerging issues and boosts situational awareness. Unfortunately, most streaming analytics platforms perform limited analysis in real time and do not track individual devices.

This talk describes how software technology for in-memory computing can address this challenge. Using the digital twin model, this technology can independently track and analyze millions of IoT devices, provide feedback in milliseconds, and continuously visualize aggregated statistics every few seconds. The digital twin model enables fast processing of incoming telemetry by maintaining immediately accessible state information for each IoT device. It also simplifies application design with object-oriented techniques and enables transparent performance scaling.

Join us to learn about the next generation in streaming analytics for IoT using in-memory computing and digital twins.

VIRTUAL: IOT – Learnings from the Field

Recently, buzzwords like “Digital Twin,” “Industry 4.0,” “Industrial IoT,” and “Edge AI” have dominated the conversation around IoT and sensor data. Oftentimes we envision equipment-fixing drones, 4-D models of factories, and workers in Iron Man suits. At Palantir, we have a different view, and we’re excited to share it with you. Our exploration of IOT will cover the following topics:

  • How to avoid rebuilding commoditised solutions, instead building solutions that generate Alpha.
  • Why “good security” isn’t good enough.
  • Why starting small and growing with your organisation is optimal.
  • How to avoid building a point solution Frankenstein.
  • Why being predictive and proactive is more achievable than first thought.
