“If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!”
— Brendan O’Brien, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, Aria Systems –
As IoT becomes more of a reality at many enterprises in Africa, learning more about the technologies and processes of IoT can position you as a top resource for your customers.
IoT is changing and transforming everything from business to life across the world. Imaginations are boundless and opportunities are infinite.
SOME OF THE BIG QUESTIONS ARE:
Is Africa ready for this disruptive technology?
How the blockchain technology is becoming an integral part of IoT.
How and to what extent will IoT "tame" Big Data?
Security and privacy are among the main concerns among enterprises – how should they guard against these risks?
Lack of standardisation, a hindrance to the adoption of the IoT; how far has related Government bodies, the GSMA and other governing bodies gone in coming up with a regulatory framework?
How can enterprises best cash in on the many new business opportunities and revenue streams that have emerged as a result of this technology?
We are excited to announce the 2 nd Edition of the Internet of Things Africa Summit & Smart Expo (IoTAS 2017) where we answer these questions and more. The IoTAS 2017 platform which is set for 24 – 25 May 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa, will discuss local, regional and global state if the industry with its progress, challenges and outlook.
