Capturing Hidden Value from IoT and Advanced Analytics

Session Abstract:

Organizations planning to implement IoT and advanced analytics often fail to capture the envisioned value of these initiatives. This is rooted in 1) not rigorously identifying and quantifying up-front all of the potential value levers, and 2) failing to carefully operationally validate the ability to capture each pocket of value. This talk will share a detailed case study of how a multi-billion dollar industrial and residential services company drove hyper-growth and profitability through an IoT/data strategy, applying a methodical approach in transforming a traditional asset intensive company with a blue-collar workforce into a modern, digital data-driven company. We will share how to address the challenge of not just delivering the right insights to the right people at the right time, but also making the critical cultural, behavioral and mind shift changes that enabled extended leadership and operational teams to harness the power of data.
