MINNEAPOLIS -- June 15, 2017 -- Exosite, a leading provider in the Internet of Things (IoT) platform market, today announced that CTO Mark Benson will present at the 2017 IoT Slam Internet of Things Conference on June 22 at Research Triangle Park (R.T.P.), located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The event will focus on the rapidly changing landscape driven by the emergence of IoT and the resulting impact on cloud, big data, prescriptive analytics, autonomic computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain, smart cities, wearables, and much more.
Benson will present on “Building an Organizational IoT Competency: How to Prevent Disaster” at 10:30 a.m. in Room A. The presentation will focus on the fact that 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. Benson will present five key behaviors that successful organizations embrace when starting an IoT journey. He will also discuss how smart, connected products will redefine entire markets and the nature of competition over the coming decade. Finally, he will conclude with thoughts about how the key to long-term success is directly proportional to an organization’s ability to transform into a digital enterprise today.
