“IoT”, Michael Dell said, “allows companies to use the vast amounts of data they generate to design better products, improve operations and customer experience”.

IRDG is delighted to continue our Smart Connected Devices (SCD) Series for members. In today’s Intelligence Age – the connected world, there’s an evolving ecosystem of smart, connected devices, machines and systems that interact and are changing our lives and businesses.

This impact stretches across all sectors of industry, and the opportunities, and needs, for innovation are many.

- Exploring the IoT phenomenon and what it could mean to IRDG members
- Looking at the imminent threats and opportunities businesses face and examine what will separate the winners from the losers in the connected world
- Highlighting new solutions that are changing the connectivity landscape
