Accelerating IoT outcomes: Analytics + Partnerships + Democratization

Session Abstract: IoT is forcing a fundamental rethinking of business and operational strategies. Whether your data are on-premises, in a public or private cloud, at the edge, or anywhere in-between – analytics needs to be there with it. And democratization — making data, analytics and AI available and accessible to everyone in the organization – is crucial to realizing value and ensuring Digital Transformation success. You can see the beginnings of this wave in citizen data scientists and citizen application developers who use visualization, low-code and no-code environments to build models and applications. While the quality and robustness of algorithms...

Location, Location, Location: The Power of the Edge

Session Abstract: Moving computing workloads to the edge can have surprising benefits that lead to entirely new ways of interacting with data. Take one classic edge exercise: bringing millions of time series records per second into a time series database from varied IoT data sources. High-performance time series databases require data to be inserted in order. Geographically decentralized networks then lead to significant delays in delivering data to the database. This delay is measured not just in milliseconds but seconds. The larger this window, the more data must be sorted before insertion into the database. This problem of windowing and...

Solving the Data (Meaning) Dilemma for IoT

Session Abstract: The IoT Community has made significant progress in developing competencies for data collection – but we haven’t quite figured out how to make all the data we collect useful at scale. This is partly because we have not implemented strong methods that provide us with a shared and trusted understanding of what the data means.  The “data dilemma” for IoT is a solvable problem.  Applying the principles of Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG) can significantly enhance the value from your investment in IoT connectivity.  The pathway forward is linked to mature data content standards that were developed specifically for this...

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.

How 5G Communications Supercharges Enterprise Gains from IoT and Sensor Networks

Session Abstract: As “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) said in Top Gun, “I feel the need — the need for speed!”. Today, smart factories are adopting 5G Private Networks. One of the biggest benefits it to fulfill firms that mimic “Maverick” — with today’s IoT sensor networks, firms can wait 20 milliseconds or more to see results from data analysis. 5G gives firms immediate — 1 millisecond — access to key variables. I will discuss how “knowledge synthesis” serves as a tool to understand the economics of IoT and how network effects within firms and between firms are likely to be...
