The Internet of Things Will Change Your Business: What's Your Plan?

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents the convergence of mobile, cloud, big data, and analytics. To leverage the IoT and reinvent themselves, businesses have to grapple with the complexities of managing big data, multiple devices, platforms, and connections. Connected devices that form the genesis of the IoT are getting smarter. They are evolving our physical world into a new kind of interconnected information system, driving a new wave of data, and creating unprecedented business value by driving new revenue services for those who embrace the opportunity.

The IoT is uniquely transformative and has the potential to reinvent everything from supply chains to the customer experience. It will help companies apply data-driven insights and use machine-to-machine technology to diagnose and solve problems—closer to the edge device and without human intervention. The question is how do you quickly pinpoint the innovations and opportunities that will help your company use IoT data to reinvent your business for the digital age?

Registration for the IoT Summit is now at capacity.

Session Highlights:

  • The IoT revolution: productive or disruptive?
  • IoT at work: perspectives on driving success
  • Oracle's vision for a secure IoT from the edge to the enterprise: insights into a holistic solution

Who Should Attend:

  • CEOs/CIOs/CTOs of organizations planning or delivering IoT and M2M strategies or initiatives
  • EVPs/SVPs/VPs heading IoT and M2M groups within organizations or who are in charge of large-scale projects requiring intelligent devices, data collection, management, and analysis, and the storage and extraction of business intelligence data


Tuesday, September 30

8:00 a.m.–8:30 a.m.

Executive Welcome and Keynote
Scott Armour, Group Vice President, Java Business, Oracle

Experts agree that the Internet of Things will be disruptive to business and society, and in a bigger way than what we have seen from major shifts such as mobile devices and social media. According to a recent Business Insider survey, only 15 percent of companies have solutions that will help them take advantage of the Internet of Things.

The IoT is a game-changer that can transform business and deliver the opportunity to create new revenue models and drive profound change no matter what markets are being served—from automotive to utilities, from building control to healthcare. Do you have a plan? Will you be a leader, a follower, or an outlier when it comes to the IoT? Join this new information superhighway of device–generated data and leverage it to differentiate your business.

8:30 a.m.–9:00 a.m.

Intelligence on the Edge of the Nervous System
Sebastian Seung, Princeton Neuroscience Institute

Your retina is a part of your brain that grew out to your embryonic eye. Your retina not only senses light, but contains intricate neural circuits that perform the first steps of visual perception. Bringing computations close to the data enables fast behavioral responses and efficiently utilizes the bandwidth of the optic nerve. Think of the human eye as nature's IoT and how efficiency and speed are increased by moving intelligence to the edge. Retinal circuitry is being mapped by the new field of connectomics. You can help by joining EyeWire, an online community of "citizen neuroscientists" who trace the "wires" of the retina by playing a game that resembles a 3D coloring book.

9:00 a.m.–9:30 a.m.

Transforming Business: Edge to Enterprise
Peter Utzschneider, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle

The Internet of Things poses a huge opportunity to fundamentally change your business. But in order to do so you must adopt a new way of managing a variety of complex and quickly changing data in order to achieve business differentiation. A robust and scalable infrastructure is needed that is always on and can handle massive amounts of data, transforming it for immediate business value. These end-to-end requirements include greater device flexibility, comprehensive security, and device cloud analytics. Couple that with a purpose-built enterprise solution that incorporates business intelligence, big data, and analytics to help enable decisions faster than ever before, even in the cloud. Take a closer look at Oracle's transformative IoT platform built specifically to meet customer and market requirements.

9:30 a.m..–10:00 a.m.


10:00 a.m.–10:30 a.m.
