Real-world IoT: IoT in practice
From implementing mission critical IoT to trailblazing detection-as-service, our industry speaker brings 20+ years of experience in IT to redefine how businesses operate and to reimagine how products and services can be delivered.

With IoT, the line between IT and “the business” has become quite blurry, as it represents the collision and intersection of Information Technology and Operational Technology. This increases the role and value of IT but also magnifies the importance and need for strong IT leadership. Now more than ever, IT leaders face a plethora of opportunities, challenges, solutions, platforms, and partners. Connectivity has become ubiquitous, and there is no shortage of data. Cloud platform providers offer low-risk consumption-based opportunities to accelerate powerful solutions that weren’t previously possible. Navigating this landscape can be daunting, so how can your organization more effectively utilize IoT to solve real world problems?

Nonintrusive Sensors
When did it become normal for our personal data to automatically become the property of others? Why have we returned to a “server” model of information exchange for many of our data services, where “someone else” is responsible for data security and service availability? As an alternative, nonintrusive sensors could offer several potential advantages, including central installation with the ability to monitor the aggregate behavior of a collection of devices. The behavior of individual devices could be diaggregated, and the data from these sensors would be inherently collated. This talk will review three different examples of nonintrusive sensors and will examine approaches for deploying and coordinating the operation of these sensors to secure data, minimize the need for communication bandwidth, and ensure the presentation of actionable information for enhancing system operation.
