Session 1:

Defining IoT Success in terms of Operational Outcomes

Speakers: Steve Perlberg, Sr Manager IoT Partnership, Verizon Wireless
David Stephenson, President, Stephenson Strategies
Joel Young, SVP & CTO, Digi International

Gathering data from the network's edge can produce outcomes as simple as generating a work order, or as complex as measuring customer satisfaction. In this session, solutions providers to the IoT sector will discuss general types of outcomes to assess before deploying connected technology, including:

  • Measuring only - reporting on ambient or device conditions
  • Event-Based Alarms - alerts and reports on exceptions
  • Command/Control - actuating from a remote location
  • Predictive Analysis - projecting performance failure

  • Design/Development - creating software without deploying devices
  • Testing/Debugging - simulation environments to test apps at scale
  • Deployment - accommodating remote commissioning and provisioning
  • Management - analyzing data for decision-making
