Apr 28, 2016   |   Microsoft IoT

Curious how the Internet of Things (IoT) can transform your business? Then you’ll want to check out the second annual IoT Slam ’16, which kicks off today at 9 a.m. PDT. It’s a rare opportunity to hear from 50 world-class speakers and thought leaders on what IoT can do to impact your business today, and how some of the world’s most successful businesses have built IoT into their strategic planning.

We invite you to listen in to the all-star panel session “Plotforming IoT: What makes an IoT Platform Transformative” where Sam George, Microsoft director of Azure IoT, will be joined by industry veterans from Emerson, GE Current and IBM to talk about how to take your IoT beyond the basics, turning it into a true agent of business transformation. Sam will share his perspective on how businesses are using IoT to deliver return on investment (ROI) today and what they can expect from their IoT platform in the future. The panelists will respond to important questions, such as:

  • Where have you seen IoT spark true business transformation?
  • How does an IoT platform deliver ROI?
  • Which platform capabilities create the greatest customer innovation?

Expect candid talk about platform maturity and usability, and which factors might affect customer sales. You can find more session details here.
