About the Event

Studies predict that between now and 2035, the world will have a trillion connected computers built into everything from food packaging to bridges and clothes. The Internet of Things is without a doubt changing the trajectory of consumer interactions and business. The pace of the growth and the drive to jump on board creates significant business and operational opportunities and challenges for companies that embrace digital transformation.
