Data & Security

“As organizations step into IoT, they must understand the symbiotic relationship between it and big data. For IoT deployments to really make an impact, they must provide some sort of useful tool or service, while also collecting relevant data.” – ZDNet
Data has been described as the glue that holds the Internet of Things together. With a seemingly limitless numbers of connections, the Big Data generated has potential to streamline business processes, improve profit margins, and assist in customer retention and cost reduction. In these sessions we review how businesses can manage IoT generated Big Data for intelligent decision making. This track will delve into both consumer and business concerns over security which have arisen from the increasing connectivity brought about by IoT. With the application of IoT to an infinite number of devices, and the acceleration of the market, we will be exploring the new areas of technology which are responding to these perceived threats.
