PANEL – MONETIZATION OF IOT AND HOW IOT DATA AND ANALYTICS PLAY SUBSTANTIAL ROLES IN THIS EMERGING AND DISRUPTIVE SPACE

A session at IoT Slam® 2016 Second International Internet of Things Conference (Virtual Event)

Thursday 28th April, 2016

3:20pm to 4:00pm

“Data has increasingly become an expanding asset of importance within enterprises. With the growing number of connected devices and sources of data in the Internet of Things, ways in which to manage, process and generate both internal and external value from this data exhaust remains a priority for enterprises. In some cases, the speed with which this data is analyzed is the critical, value-add component (for example, fraud analytics); in others, it is the added insight through advanced analytics which yields higher value (for example predictive maintenance); and in other cases, it is the volume and aggregation of data which provide the most meaningful insights (for example, single and unified views of real-time and historical data for customer 360 insights). The opportunities are significant, and yet one thing remains equally true; data management and processing in IoT requires change.”

Key themes to be discussed:

Edge vs core (cloud) storage, processing and management
Impact on real-time analytics and latency
Impact on communication networks and requirements
Security aspects of peer-to-peer communications
Potentials for attacks on data
Geo-distribution
Direct support for mobility
Bandwidth demands
