Information Technology Peer Group Meeting 

Developing and Deploying IoT Solutions Throughout the Enterprise 
March 21, 2018 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
How can you make your enterprise IoT ready? 

IoT technologies are changing the world around us. The pace of change is rapidly evolving together with the technology and consumer adoption is growing equally fast. While manufacturing and industrial environments have adopted and used IoT technologies for a number of years, wide-scale adoption across enterprise campuses has been slow. IoT offers some remarkable efficient opportunities to transform and automate work across the enterprise. Low-cost sensors and computing platforms can collect and analyze data on a near real-time basis providing a level of operational visibility to the organization that could be extremely valuable. However, enabling these technologies, adopting, securing and implementing these solutions together with identifying the correct use cases where IoT can offer the best ROI is a challenging endeavor. The March IT peer group will address some of these challenges and issues by bringing together industry leaders and practitioners who are trying to adopt and implement IoT solutions across the enterprise.
