The Internet of Things:

Big Data from Smart, Connected Products and Services

Registration is open!

The internet enabled the web to cause a great surge in productivity, empower the individual, usher in new business models, and disrupt countless industries and professions.

Next, the emerging era of smart, connected products and services will experience the same, again enabled by the internet. Devices and software will generate data by monitoring and interacting with their environments and themselves, and these data will enable new classes of services for both consumers and enterprises. Predictions reach the many trillions of dollars in contributions to world economies.

Think Big Data meets the Internet of Things.
