Proving the Business Case for the Internet of Things


Edge Hardware for IoT

September 19, 2019

Increased computing power at the network’s edge is bringing myriad advantages, making predictive maintenance and AI tenable for remote, industrial applications. According to some studies, more than half of IoT Adopters expect to be analyzing complex data sets at the edge in the next three years. Advances in hardware are driving development, and this session will cover the breadth of the edge, from intelligent actuators/sensors, through data aggregation, into edge IT pre-processing.

IoT Software Backbone Integration for IoT Platforms

October 24, 2019

Integrating IoT deployments with backbone systems for ERP and CRM is empowering for factory-floor and supply-chain managers, as well as service organizations. Benefits range from predictive maintenance to automated use of social data. This session will highlight practical advice about getting connected, avoiding expensive integration programming, making intelligent choices about data, and of course, security.

IoT Connectivity for Smart Asset-Tracking

December 5, 2019

Experts say that the future of manufacturing is intelligent asset-tracking, and advances in supporting real-time data analytics, advances in indoor positioning and mapping, and AI are making this a reality today. Roughly one third of all IMC Adopter Members are involved in supply chains in one way or other, and this session will focus on use-cases for asset tracking in various industries that take advantage of the latest technologies.

Using IoT Data at the Edge, Where it's Needed


McKinsey & Co. have estimated that only 1% of IoT data ever actually gets used. One solution to this is to avoid so-called "data lakes" architectures where pools of unused data are collected, and instead opting for distributed intelligence at the network's edge. This session will look at the latest advances in machine-learning for IoT applications, emphasizing auto-correction and predictive analysis.

IoT Software: Basic Components of the Platform


As the number of software options for deploying connecting devices multiplies, those platforms offer more than simply connectivity management. This session will look at the basic components of an end-to-end software platform, including the basic database, connectivity, device management, rule-based process management, analytics, and other tools software brings to bear.

Satellite Connectivity Poised for an IoT Breakout?


Satellite connectivity for IoT/M2M deployments has long been a pillar of the ecosystem, especially in applications where truly ubiquitous coverage and reliability outweighed most cost concerns. However, new service offerings that integrate satellite connectivity, nanosatellite networks that lower costs, and new antennae technology are all combining to expand the footprint of satellite in the IoT sector.

Wearables Affect Healthcare, Retail, Smart Homes, Agribiz, More


Advances in integrated circuits and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are making wearable technology more functional every day. Already broadly used for consumer wellness, new wearable technology will allow for medical-grade reporting, location-based marketing services, and home systems integration - this session will cover the likely trends.
