Speaker "Bill Franks" Details Back



The Analytics Of Things


The Internet of Things (IOT) has arrived and is growing rapidly in scope and influence. From industrial equipment, to personal tracking devices, to smart grid infrastructure, the number of connected devices is increasing exponentially. This means that the data generated by the IOT is growing exponentially as well. While there is a lot of value hidden in IOT data, there are many challenges in extracting that value through analytics. This talk will walk through some of the key issues that organizations will face as they attempt to analyze IOT data as well as some examples of IOT analytics today and those coming tomorrow. By the end of the talk, attendees will see why many are calling it The Analytics of Things (AOT) rather than the Internet of Things (IOT).
