Session 1Defining IoT Success in terms of Operational Outcomes


  • 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

  • Joe Braga, Head of Product & Solutions Marketing, Telit
  • Dan McDuffie, Principal, IoT Strategies
  • Norman Miglietta, Director, Group Marketing, KORE
  • Steve Roberts, Chief Technology Officer, KE2 Therm Solutions

Developers are expected to deliver IoT solutions quickly without compromising performance or security, while enterprise users often expect systems that can operate for many years while accommodating upgrades without excessive maintenance. This session will feature a deep-dive discussion of some of the basic concepts developers and users need to consider, including:

  • 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
  • Decommissioning – allowing for the secure removal of devices?
