Product Description

Workshop Overview

The IoT technology is revolutionizing the smart healthcare sector, energy sector, smart cities, smart transportation systems, smart security sectors and e-governance systems by taking connectivity, data mining and communication to the next level. It is predicted that by 2020, about 7.6 billion people will be interconnected via 50 billion devices which is a good indication of worldwide diffusion of things and data connected to the internet via IoT technology. According to business analysts, IoT technology will lead to an economic growth of 4.6 trillion dollars in the Global Public Sector by 2020. To analyze huge data, big data analytics is typically performed using integrated functions such as specialized software tools and applications for predictive analytics, data mining, text mining, data forecasting and data optimization.
Due to unlimited opportunities for IoT entrepreneurship and businesses, a huge number of small and medium sized business owners and entrepreneurs have already welcomed the gold rush for IOT worldwide. Also due to the emergence of enormous open source IoT and M2M platforms, the development of IOT systems is quite cost effective and worthy to start the IoT businesses. As a consequence of digitization, communities will be able to facilitate the management of data concerning health care and other services such as traffic and parking management, security, street lighting, water and waste management and more.
This IoT/M2M and Big Data for Smart Cities Solutions workshop is a must-attend for anyone involved in IoT businesses and standards, IoT business management/technology roadmap and planning, IoT standards development and data analysts. In this workshop, world renowned speakers will discuss about state-of-the-art IoT applications for smart cities, smart healthcare sector, smart grid, smart transportation systems, smart security systems and e-governance.
