Making the Case for Agile IoT Development

The Internet of Things (IoT) offers huge potential economic impact across sectors (especially in a post-COVID world). However, Gartner estimates that 75% of IoT projects today take twice as long as planned. The industry is in need of agile development and processes — but that’s easier said than done. How can organizations make it happen?

In this keynote presentation, you will:

  • Learn the top five most common reasons IoT projects fail
  • See an honest comparison of Waterfall vs. Agile for IoT
  • Discover 10 major steps to completing an Agile IoT project successfully
