Connected Utilities: A pragmatic business use case of IoT: past, present and future

Session Abstract:

In this session, I (and we) will inspect a pioneer vertical in IoT (Internet of Things). Utilities is one of the early IoT adopters. Vast power grid, regulatory requirements, customer service, financial stress – Utilities have never been scarce of pain points.

I will examine in detail how these and other complex problems were mitigated. The session will cover a practical approach for applying full stack IoT application: device, embedded software, communications, cloud platform and cloud solution.

Such systems generate petabytes of data. What is the use of data? I will demonstrate specific use cases for artificial intelligence in action at the edge and cloud.

Our session will include facts and figures and conclude with a futuristic view of where the industry will head.

Key Points:

1. Early stage IoT monetization ready business case.
2. How multifaceted, convoluted problems are overcome.
3. Implications of a full stack IoT application.
4. Application of big data and machine learning. Solve the problem, don’t overkill.
5. Challenges, upcoming innovation and forward looking sight.
