Overcoming complexity – the race to deliver scalable, secure IoT

Overcoming complexity – the race to deliver scalable, secure IoT

It is now a well-publicized fact that the IoT predictions from several years ago have completely missed their mark, and arguably are the biggest technology prediction miss in history. Complexity caused by siloed technology stacks and a fragmented mobile network landscape are heralded as the key reasons that have held IoT back.

Today, we are on the brink of a revolution as ‘physical’ businesses transform their models with the power of IoT, offering connected, personalized, data-driven experiences and services on scalable cloud infrastructure. But to enable this, change needs to happen to cut through the noise, improve interoperability with open standards and give IoT a better chance at success.

Join this fireside chat to hear views and insights from a panel of experts from AWS, Thales, Eseye and IoT analyst firm Transforma Insights.

Together they’ll examine the challenges, discuss the importance of partnerships and highlight emerging solutions that rapidly help customers overcome complexity, improve interoperability and deliver IoT successfully in the field.

By attending you will learn:

  • The impact of a globally fragmented mobile network landscape
  • Why technology interoperability and scalability is a key to success
  • What solutions are available to simplify IoT deployments and create a zero-touch experience, straight out of the box
  • Examples of where device-to-cloud simplification really works

Duration: 60 min.
