Our theme for CaseIT 2015 will be Internet of Things: Challenges of the Future
Imagine this - the world at your the tip of your fingers. Devices, systems, and services all connecting seamlessly to give you the data you need, when you need it. The Internet of Things will give us the opportunity to change the way we live and work, but like many opportunities, it also presents many challenges.
Anything we can dream of - from mobile devices, transportation, infrastructure, and much more - will all be connected to the Internet. We are all partaking in the Internet of Things in our daily lives, sometimes without even knowing. According to Gartner, there will be nearly 26 billion devices on the Internet of Things by 2020. The challenges stemming from connecting and supporting all these devices create challenges for all organizations, no matter what size. In addition, by equipping everything to be seamlessly and continuously connected to the Internet, there will be an infinite amount of data collected. Being able to process this big data into information will give us greater efficiency and effectiveness in everything that we do
The Internet of Things will connect all aspects of our lives and help us reach our full potential. Join us in exploring the challenges and possibilities of the Internet of Things at CaseIT 2015.
