CAPTIVATING KEYNOTE MESSAGE

What the heck is ‘Smart Space’ and am I behind the IoT curve?

Sean Grimm
Subject Matter Expert and Evangelist, Hitachi IoT Solutions

The terms “smart space” and “IoT” are the buzzwords of this past decade. Most organizations understand they need to become “smarter," but what does that really mean? Most organizations have adopted some form of IoT strategy to make them smarter but what constitutes IoT? In this opening keynote we will explore the evolution of smart strategies into actual smart spaces that impact your organization. We will eliminate the nebulous IoT vernacular and share how you can harness the existing hardware and sensors already deployed in your organization to better leverage the data being gathered from these assets. As an industry expert in smart spaces, video intelligence and IoT, Sean Grimm will deliver an opening keynote address sure to be both informational, as well as dynamic.
