Join us for the 2015 IoT World Forum opening in Dubai as we celebrate our awakening to a new world of opportunities made possible by the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things: The Vision and New Directions Ahead
Etisalat Group CEO Ahmad Julfar will address the possibilities for the connected world that IoT provides and what is required for realizing the potential of technology for future generations. He will explore the digital transformation of society in the context of developments in the MENA region and what this means for government, business, communities, and individuals. Additionally, he will outline the work that Etisalat Group is already doing and the critical role telcos play in the value chain.
On the 50 th anniversary of Moore’s Law, we are poised to see the next stage of what has arguably been the most consequential prediction of modern technology. In 1965, Gordon Moore understood that the integrated circuit would usher in the era of modern computing. Today we are seeing the Internet of Things not only expand the possibilities of computing, but fundamentally redefine it. Much has already been written about how the Internet of Things will fuel a new economy of connected devices, analytics, and automation. But Intel’s Doug Davis, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Internet of Things Solution Group, believes the consequences are game - changing for almost every part of the economy. “The Internet of Things has the capacity to solve the gre atest social and business challenges of our time,” says Davis. “This is far bigger than making a dumb device smart.”
Davis has been instrumental in driving Intel’s success in the embedded processors over the past 20 years. Today he leads a worldwide organization responsible for applying Intel Architecture to a broad spectrum of market segments, including industrial automation, retail, aerospace, automotive, and other intelligent systems applications.
In his talk, Davis will argue that the ability to create smart buildings, connected machinery, or even intelligent cars is only part of what we should expect from the Internet of Things. Because of the enormous amount of real-time, actual information we can produce, it is reasonable to start thinking about how smart and connected systems can tackle the management of booming urban centers, address the needs of millions of baby boomers with aging parents, or create agricultural systems that feed the world’s escalating population.
Finally, Davis will highlight some real use cases where Intel technology is enabling Cisco IoT solutions
Leading in the Connected Era
How Digital Disruption and IoT are Redefining Financial Services
Join us for Day 2 of the 2015 IoT World Forum in Dubai as we activate the Internet of Things and discuss best practices, deployment models, and roadmaps for delivering unprecedented value
The industrial world is changing. We are at an inflection point for achieving rapid value creation through the connected enterprise. It is now possible to transform high volumes of real-time data from industrial operations into actionable insights for plantwide optimization. A scalable implementation of industrial IoT technologies enhances this transformation with smart connected assets and tools such as real-time analytics, all working together as part of an integrated control and information system. When technologies are built on a validated reference architecture and technologies such as IP-based networks, cloud, mobility, and scalable compute, it is possible to achieve transparent convergence between OT systems and enterprise IT systems. This keynote will highlight applications of industrial IoT technologies to enhance the connected enterprise.
What is a web of systems (WoS)? How does it differ from the Internet of Things? And what possibilities, business opportunities, and perspectives are revealed if the WoS is the springboard for the development of an entire communications ecosystem for industry? These questions will be addressed by Professor Siegfried Russwurm, CTO and member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, in his keynote entitled “A Web of Systems for a Digital World,” which will highlight one of the most innovative Siemens projects of recent years.
The Internet of Things is the ultimate change agent challenging us to find new ways to work, produce, do business, and live. Our customers are demanding systems that allows their teams and processes to connect and interoperate in ways like never before. When operational, financial, energy, and sustainability teams collaborate, enterprises and communities are finding game-changing drivers for safety, reliability, efficiency, and sustainability. But as IT and OT companies come together to implement these systems, major hurdles in the ways we compute, control, collaborate and architect systems must be addressed. In this presentation we will discuss the lessons learned from years of experience on the vanguard of boundary-crossing interoperability through Sch neider Electric’s EcoStruxure approach, the innovations we have developed explicitly to support IoT implementations, and the direct results seen from real-world case studies where these barriers have been overcome to deliver new levels of efficiency.
A major source of scale advantage and cost savings is being derived from a new wave of industrial-strength applications and asset performance management services that harness streams of performance data generated by machines connected to one another, and people, in the cloud. GE’s strategic decision to focus on software and analytics-based services will drive its digital transformation to become a top 10 software company by 2020. Mr. Ruh will explore the growing importance of the industrial Internet, service transformation, new business models, and the effects each will have on industry in the decade ahead.
Join us for Day 3 of the 2015 IoT World Forum in Dubai as we accelerate the Internet of Things and discuss revolutionary innovations, new services and products, and disruptive business models.
Urbanization and fast adaptation of new technologies are trends that are rapidly influencing the world today. These trends continue to emphasize the relevance of sustainable solutions that will help meet societal demands around basic needs, security, and productivity. 3M is using its scientific and technical capabilities to innovate products and solutions in diverse markets to address some of the challenges of urbanization. Our solutions include energy management, traffic optimization, enhanced worker safety, robust infrastructure, and increased security for individuals and communities. Combining available digital technology capabilities with the products and domain knowledge of the physical world, 3M is uniquely positioned to serve its customers and society.
