IoT Solutions World Congress: Showcasing the potential of the connected world

Worldwide IoT and Industrial Digital Strategist, IBM

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is creating an opportunity to connect nearly everything, which will generate huge amounts of data. Most predictors estimate there will be billions of devices collecting, processing and sharing information within the next few years.

Experts say that connecting the unconnected in the next decade will generate trillions of dollars. The IoT is opening up a new world of possibilities for society as well as creating myriad business prospects for the IT industry.

But how can organizations capitalize on all of this potential? Are there ways to uncover the actual needs of different vertical markets, and contact key players and decision-makers in each industrial sector? How can companies offer profitable, effective and efficient technological solutions, and transform the opportunities provided by the IoT into real business results?

This is why IBM is a Diamond sponsor at the IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona on September 16–18. This gathering of IoT leaders will discuss, showcase and brainstorm the latest IoT solutions that are driving business opportunities that were previously unimaginable. Cloud-based application and intelligent device development, operational analytics for facilities and energy, and condition-based and predictive maintenance are some of the key solutions being featured.

If you're interested in being part of this forward-thinking conference, you can register here. If you're already planning on attending, we hope you'll come visit us. Our keynote presentation is on September 16 at 9:30 AM, so please check it out if you’re there. We’ll be on the showcase floor and would love to chat with you about what we're doing or hear your ideas. Even if you can't make it to Barcelona, you can follow @IBMIoT as we'll be live-streaming the talk through Periscope.
