Day 1

29 November 2017

Developing for the IoT

“What’s the best way to build “Internet of Things software” that could do anything from control home appliances remotely, to inform an aero-engine manufacturer that one of its engines somewhere in the world needs servicing, to gather meteorological data from sensors to produce a weather forecast? What skills are needed to do so? Where do you even begin?” – CIO.com
Day One of the Developing for the IoT agenda will explore the evolving technology available to developers looking to create IoT products and software. Reviewing platforms and frameworks for development, hardware and connectivity options and also the tools needed to create products and applications for the IoT.

View Full Info

Connected devices are becoming increasingly complex often supporting multiple wireless protocols and sensors. Testing these systems can be time-consuming and costly without the right knowledge, expertise and tools. What testing is required to verify that the product meets industry standards and government regulations? How does testing differ for non-cellular compared to cellular devices? What specific design and test challenges are you likely to encounter when bringing an IoT device to market? Product testing is considered a major barrier to launching new products and many companies do not have the necessary expertise, especially in wireless testing. How do we for example ensure that a device complies with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi standards?

View IoT Reality Check: Starting and Scaling the Journey

View Full Info

In the last few years, IoT hype has been overwhelming. We’ve been inundated by technology messages and predictions about billions of connected devices and trillions of dollars of economic opportunity. While all true, IoT is not really about those things. It is about front-line people and processes using IoT technology to create new business outcomes. It is about the journey of thousands of organizations already leveraging IoT to optimize their operations, introduce disruptive business models and discover new revenue streams.

In this talk, the speaker provides a proven step-by-step guide for organizations in most any industry to start and scale their own IoT journey. Drawing on his recent New York Times Best Seller, “Building the Internet of Things,” the author and Cisco executive shares eight key ingredients for any successful IoT implementation, four fast paths to payback, several business case studies, common deployment mistakes, and practical best practices. He will get past the hype and illustrate how to capture the full value of IoT today.
