about this event

There is a new class of clouds on the horizon that are built specifically to handle the big data generated from the Internet of Things (IoT). These IoT cloud’s integrate that flood of data with real-time analytics to gain greater insight to drive better customer relationships, gain more efficient operations, and improve security and risk management. While the IoT opportunity is boundless, companies must understand and overcome challenges including security, performance, scalability, and reliability.

Interdependence Day – Internet of ThingsUnderstanding the Interconnection of Data, Devices, and Organizations In Today’s Software Defined World is invitation-only and limited to 40 senior business and technology leaders from major organizations in the Greater Silicon Valley area. Roundtable members will benefit from a highly interactive format that allows every leader to exchange knowledge and experiences while networking over a two hour lunch.

we will cover the following questions

  • What is the current and future landscape of the IoT infrastructure ecosystem?
  • Why are industry leaders using IoT clouds to make big data more accessible?
  • What are the best examples of how industry leaders are using cloud infrastructure to maximize their IoT strategies?
  • How do you reduce the amount of latency between data and predictive analytic services, enabling real-time insights into real-world customer preferences and network loads?
  • How are innovative organizations using the hybrid-cloud model to avoid risks of the public internet?
  • How do you accelerate big data and IT infrastructures while reducing cost by leveraging the cloud?
