As the prospect of 20 billion connected devices in four years' time looks more and more like fiction, we ask "what happened to the IoT?" Confirmed speakers are Paul Green, Iotic Labs; Usman Haque, thingful; Nick Hunn, WiFore; Henk Koopmans & Luis Barreto, Neul; Kudzai Mungate, Skanska; Antony Rix, 8power and Tracey Hopkins, Everynet.


The prospect of a massively connected world that lives on data has driven vast innovation in platforms, new communication standards such as LPWAN and NB-IoT, data analytics, sensors and cloud technologies. But instead of a brave new world, most deployments and revenue remain in vertical M2M style applications. Is the IoT too all-encompassing a concept, which has diverted attention from where the real business models reside, or do we just need to wait a few more years for some more elements of technology to fall into place? Join our expert speakers to hear their perspectives on where the IoT is going, why it is taking longer than expected and where the real business models are to be found.

Confirmed speakers for this event include:

The Connected Devices SIG is championed by Paul Green of Iotic Labs, Nick Hunn of WiFore, Antony Rix of 8power and Tim Whittaker of Cambridge Consultants
