IoT Innovation: Localising Global Devices

IoT is a global business in which devices are typically manufactured in one country and end up in another, yet they must be able to connect everywhere.

Gartner indicates three main obstacles facing enterprises looking for global connectivity solutions:

  • ‘Using global SIM is not an option in some countries due to total or partial permanent roaming restrictions’
  • ‘Security is the No.1 consideration’
  • ‘Local regulatory issues where data needs to remain in the country’

 

Join Rony Cohen, Founder & Head of Strategy and Business Development at floLIVE, in a session describing how floLIVE overcomes each of these challenges against traditional connectivity solutions

IoT Innovation: Vantiq

The pressures to become a ‘real-time business’ are building, driven by rapid advances in IoT, machine learning, augmented reality, robotics, and mobility (to name a few). Your people can and must drive agility and innovation. They can do so only if you enable them to work collaboratively with ‘machines’—the systems that are increasingly at the heart of your organization.

According to Gartner, so-called ‘event-driven applications’ ingest the real-time data streaming from your systems, devices, and people regarding the events constantly happening in and around your company, partners, and customers. Continuously sensing, analyzing, and acting on these event data streams enables the right action, at the right time, at the right place.

In this session, Mark Munro, Director International Pre-Sales of application development platform company VANTIQ, will describe how it is now possible to quickly create truly digitally transformative applications with event-driven architecture (EDA).

Navigating Security for Industry 4.0

As Industry 4.0 takes off, it’s clear that data, devices and services will transform processes. However, as we place more connected devices into the production line and processes become more autonomous, there is a growing concern around security.

Whether you’re creating devices, or buying devices to deploy in your production line, there are simple steps you should consider or complete regarding security. PSA Certified offers 10 security goals which align with some of the most influential government guidelines and regulations worldwide. By implementing these goals, devices are built with a solid foundation for security and protect against common hacks. PSA Certified certification allows manufacturers to communicate the trustworthiness of their device, and procurement teams to easily identify products adhering to best practices. This means that devices are less likely to cause your business problems in the future.

In this talk we’ll cover the growing concern around security, how you can conform to worldwide regulations (such as NIST, the Californian State Law and ETSI) and how the PSA Certified program simplifies security – no matter your job title.
