IoT: Hype or Helpful? Exploring the future of business opportunities
Thu 27 July 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
So what is all this hype about the Internet of Things? Is it really the next phase of the Internet, will it really transform our lives, is it really worth £322 billion to the UK Economy by 2020?
For the more seasoned of us, are we at the peak of IoT gimmicky products and hype? Has the bubble now burst and will application after application become viable and then valuable?
Join us on the 27th July for a joint IX Liverpool and Sensor City event, presented by Prof. Matt Wilson from Telecoms Cloud and you’ll discover how the Internet of Things could affect society, the workplace and your home, and learn what (if any) opportunities could arise out of it.
By the end of this event, you should learn about:
• The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that the Internet of Things will bring to us
• The business and technological opportunities of IoT and how you can take advantage, from any industry you are in
• How to prepare yourself, your home, business or school for what change IoT will bring about
• How you can take advantage of IoT in your product or service, gain competitive advantages, provide a better customer service and/or usher in a new wave of efficiency into your organisation
Places are limited, please book early!
