APAC IoT vSummit:
Tapping IoT for Post-Crisis Business Resilience

Management consultancy McKinsey predicts that, by 2025, the overall economic impact of the IoT could reach US$11.1 trillion, surpassing mobile Internet, automation of knowledge work and cloud technology.

The pandemic has seen businesses reset goal posts from growth to survival. But moving forward a key strategy is rebuilding business models focused on resilience, without losing the need to be agile and dynamic.

While IoT is already playing an enable role in industry, in business, in people’s live today, the extent to which it will transform how businesses operate.

In the near-term organisations will need to focus on integrating a resilience-centric strategy into the supply chain, adopting a dynamic workplace skewed towards outcomes, and perhaps future-proofing OT-IT architecture.

The above presents a conundrum for the C-suite and operations coming out of the economic slump brought about by COVID-19. How do we re-architect our infrastructure to support a dynamic business model, being mindful to current investments, and conscious of what IoT can help realize when brought together with technologies by 5G, cobots, edge computing, augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence – all orchestrated under the banner of digital transformation. 

Welcome to Tapping IoT for Post-Crisis Business Resilience – where we bring together technology trends, business innovations and transformation made possible with IoT. Organised by CXOCIETY and FutureIoT the conference creates an open platform for industry practitioners to discuss, debate share experiences, expertise and insight, and come to a consensus on how best to use these technologies to create meaningful outcomes for organisations in both private and public sectors of Asia-Pacific.

Join us as we leave the world of concepts and theories and delve into the realities of converging technologies with real problems. We will tackle among a whole slew of real-world issues:

  • How IoT supports an experience-as-a-service ecosystem
  • Securing the connected ecosystem – from the factory to the home/person
  • Integrating 5G into the IoT architecture
  • Supercharging the supply chain with IoT – the right way
  • From connected devices to connected services – how to re-architect your use of IoT
