Transform Your Business Through IoT
We are entering the era of the connected business model. Potentially, any asset, person, product, process, or source of data can be connected, making a reality of the long forecast connected house, car, factory and ecosystem. Smaller and cheaper sensors-embedded technology in products like cars, oil wells, wearables, and business processes-will become the norm over the next decade. All this connectedness has the potential to radically change business models and the competitive landscape. Are you ready to capitalize on the transformational potential of IoT?

Stephanie Woerner, MIT CISR, will moderate the panel including:
