MINNEAPOLIS -- June 22, 2017 -- Exosite, a leading provider in the Internet of Things (IoT) platform market, today announced that CTO Mark Benson will present at the 2017 Sensors Expo and Conference on June 28 at the McIrney Convention Center located in San Jose, California.
The Sensors Expo & Conference is the largest gathering of engineers and engineering professionals involved in sensors and sensing-related technologies. For over three decades, more than 6,000 professionals have gathered from across the nation and 40+ countries to explore today's sensor technologies and find the solutions to tomorrow's sensing challenges. Attendees come to Sensors Expo each year to find sensors to incorporate into their current projects, learn about the latest sensing technologies, and develop networking contacts within the industry.
Benson will present a keynote on June 28 from 9:15-10 a.m. on “The Organizational Psychology of the Internet of Things: How to Use Technology to Drive Behavioral Change.” The presentation will focus on the fact that smart connected products will redefine entire markets and the nature of competition over the coming decade. Benson will discuss how organizations attempting to build smart connected products across divisions, product portfolios, and markets are being faced with a stark reality: creating IoT projects is hard and building a long-term organizational competency around developing IoT projects with excellence is even harder. Based on real-world experience, this presentation covers five key behaviors that successful organizations exhibit along their digital transformation journey as they employ IoT technology solutions to drive behavioral change.
