IoT in Enterprise: Chair’s welcome and opening comments
Using Hololens to drive process optimization for Enterprise
A presentation from thyssenkrupp about how they are using Hololens and other wearable technologies to drive digital transformation within their business.
Keynote Panel: IoT Technologies in Enterprise
- Discussing the impact that integrating IoT technology from wearables to smart lighting has on an enterprise.
- Who are the main stakeholders affected, and what benefits can be leveraged by a business when integrating IoT?
- What blue sky IoT technology can you envision being utilised by enterprises in the future?
- Who are the leaders within this field, and what are they doing right?
- What regulatory and legal issues will enterprises incorporating IoT technologies have to consider in the future?
Accelerating IoT Adoption
- Whatever your industry, you’re likely to be under pressure to accelerate IoT programs that improve operational efficiency and offer new IoT-enabled products and services.
- A cloud-first IoT SaaS platform with pre-packaged solution accelerators can get you up and running quickly and easily, enabling fast time-to-market with reduced risk.
- But as your IoT programs become more sophisticated, you may have requirements that go beyond typical SaaS solutions – such as adding machine learning/AI or combining IoT analytics with business processes.
- This is where customer choice become critical. You need the freedom to choose between SaaS, PaaS or building your own IoT Platform as well as the freedom to deploy in the cloud, at the edge, on premises, or hybrid.
- In this keynote we will show you how you can realize this customer choice and successfully balance risk and innovation.
- We will also provide examples of businesses such as Deutsche Telekom, Gardner Denver, and ADAMOS that are already reaping the rewards of IoT through partnerships that provide not just technology but also IoT strategy, methodology and delivery expertise.

A presentation from Wireless Connectivity Specialist from General Motors, Dr Lakshmi Thanayankizil.
Optimizing energy usage in Enterprise using IoT technology
- Discussion of the driving motivations for commercial and industrial enterprises to engage smart energy technologies to manage their energy usage.
- How IoT applied to energy technologies like metering, distributed energy resources and smart grids are helping businesses manage energy usage, reduce costs, increase resiliency and environmental sustainability?
- How can the natural tension between optimizing the use of distributed energy resources for the benefit of the enterprise be balanced with the electricity grid through the use of Energy IoT technology?

Panel: Smart buildings and lighting
Chair of the Marketing Working Group
02:00PM - Day 2
Executive Vice President, Alliances and BD
02:00PM - Day 2
- What changes a building from simply being connected to being truly smart?
- Discussions around how to use smart buildings and lighting to improve energy efficiency – the role of smart grids and metering.
- Lighting represents close to 30 percent of a commercial building’s electric load — roughly 10 percent of a building’s operating costs. Can smart lighting reduce costs?
- What role can traditional facilities management companies play in this ecosystem?
Start-Up as a Service: Transforming IoT Innovation in Enterprise
Start-ups are disrupting the very pillars of industry. Workforce issues, entrenched methods, bureaucracy and internal politics have limited the effectiveness of leading businesses, leaving them vulnerable. Corporate leaders responded with implementing agile approaches and lean techniques, to little effect. As Clayton Christensen stated, the worst place to develop new models is from within your existing business model. SUaaS, or Start-Up as a Service, provides the solution.
There is no place this is more apparent than in the emerging IoT field. With SUaaS, entrepreneurs who cut their teeth at the world’s best startups and business accelerators bring a fresh approach to design thinking, product development, prototyping, and production. Embedded within the company, they create disruptive IoT solutions while ensuring not just speed and cost savings but most importantly new thinking. What SUaaS brings to the table is hands-on learning, intense collaboration and easy adaption to mass production and deployment.
Innovative Safety Solution: What happens when you combine existing technology to create a comprehensive safety planning solution?
- How can IoT help with safety planning?
- Integrating location sensors, connected pre-task planning forms and mobile solutions to visualize where the riskiest work is taking place, improve communication and reduce safety incidents related to poor task planning.
- Craft adoption- how do construction workers respond to location monitoring and paperless execution?
