IoT & Industry 4.0 Online Conference & Exhibition– June 16th, 2020

In simple terms, the Internet of Things (IoT) covers all devices, ranging from basic sensors to smartphones and wearables, that are connected to the internet and which can ‘talk’ to each other. IoT allows devices to communicate not only within closed silos but across different networks, so creating a more connected IT environment.

Of course, IoT is a central facet of the digitisation of manufacturing, often referred to as the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) or the ‘digitally-networked society’. Businesses that are slow to embrace digitisation will be placed at a competitive disadvantage with shrinking returns and declining productivity.

The IoT & Industry 4.0 Conference & Exhibition is an online conference which is being held on June 16th 2020.The event will run live online from 10am GMT to 5pm GMT. The sessions will also be available for download by participants following the event.

The IoT & Industry 4.0 Conference & Exhibition will attempt to demystify and whole area of IoT and highlight its increasing use in industrial applications, to significantly improve efficiency, save both time and money while also reducing waste and increasing safety at work. The online conference will show how businesses of all sizes can improve the way they deliver products and services on a daily basis as well as identifying opportunities for growth.

IoT represents a major advancement on conventional SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, which are a common feature of factory floors. SCADA systems do not ‘talk’ to other systems such as sales, inventory, logistics and production.

The implementation of IoT software facilitates this wider use of the data collected through wider inter-connection. For example, using IoT could enable a production line, linked to sales, inventory and delivery to automatically reconfigure to produce small batches, when required.

The IoT & Industry 4.0 Conference & Exhibition is timely as the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way businesses have had to operate, and the crisis is expected to accelerate the adoption of new technologies and techniques within the workplace.

The online conference will provide participants with an insight into implementing successful programs, tailored to their specific needs, in order to drive business development and efficiencies. The Event will feature speakers from companies that are exemplary leaders in IoT & Industry 4.0, who can offer practical advice and expertise.
