Session Abstract:

The promise of IoT is almost at its peak. Enterprises are very excited, but IoT Adoption is still in its infancy. Business use cases are key to accelerate adoption of IoT within the enterprise, where business can justify hard savings, use-cases with dramatic processes improvement, and new Business models with tremendous competitive advantage. We see many enterprises that are down this path with pilots and early implementations, combining and integrating existing systems with new IoT technologies. In this journey, Manageability, Security and Scalability are essential foundational capabilities necessary to realize the value of IoT in the enterprise. Attend this session to learn how to shape your IoT Use cases, and map your (existing) big data, analytics, security and management capabilities to ensure the successful introduction & validation. Different IoT scenarios impact your on-premises and in-cloud architectures differently. Using these three qualities as your guiding principles, you will uncover an entirely new way to think about IoT in your enterprise and realize the full business potential of IoT.
