The Internet of Things (IoT) provides significant opportunities for companies to transform their competitive positions. In just a few years, all companies will create products and services that fit into a world of smart connected devices, services and ecosystems. By 2020 there will be over 50 billion devices, and the organizations that are prepared to handle the data volume along with the ability to process, analyze, and operationally exploit this data will be the winners in their respective markets. This session will provide insight into the Internet of Things and provide a strategic view of how organizations can best leverage the opportunity presented by IoT and how to exploit it for their advantage. Every industry sector, from financial services, retail, media, health care, telecom, agriculture, mining, transportation, utilities and government, will be impacted by IoT. Business and technology executives need to understand how IoT can transform their competitive dynamics, or they risk being left behind.
