The Internet of Things: Making it Happen in Your Business

Dates: April 22, 2014

Smart homes, connected cars, and personal healthcare devices may grab the bulk of the headlines, but every business can benefit from the Internet of Things (IoT). Whether you want to add intelligence to factories, increase the efficiency of your shipping, advertise to new demographics, or simply deliver enterprise applications to the personal devices of your employees and/or customers, the IoT should be central to your IT strategy.

The sky is the limit, but getting from here to there is no simple task. Connecting endpoints to back-ends with the necessary speed, scale, and security takes planning, focus, and a clear understanding of the end goal. This webinar will map the spectrum of IoT use cases through current examples, help businesses find their place on that spectrum, and provide guidance on scoping and implementing the IoT in their businesses.
