In this talk, the Met Office will explain how it sees edge computing and IoT within that and how it is working to deliver the best combination of what cloud and the edge can deliver
The promise of IoT to connect devices in an intelligent network, where they communicate with each other and exchange data, is blighted by the reality of a highly fragmented IoT ecosystem.
Product owners find themselves needing to build relationships with multiple vendors in the value chain and themselves acting as a systems integrator to deliver an integrated solution.
All this is an unnecessary and unwanted diversion from the primary objective of delivering their own IoT enabled product.
If IoT is to scale rapidly then zero-touch end-to-end service provisioning is essential.This session will highlight some of the issues involved and advise on how to overcome them
Becoming a disruptor brand with durability
Buildingtrust through creating an intuitive, reliable and stress-free customer experience
Using technology to reshape individual’s relationship with their money; it’s all about the app

- Developing ‘Generation IoT’: Looking at the current education system andwhere the next disruptors will come from
- Creating a strategy for the futureand not the past
- Recruiting the right calibre of workforce who will make an impact
It is no secret that embracing diversity in the workplace is imperative and ensuring an inclusive and diverse culture in any business is a huge strength with proven financial rewards. McKinsey found that the more ethnically diverse a management team was, the better their financial returns turned out to be. Furthermore, Credit Suisse found that organizations with at least one female board member enjoyed both a higher return on equity, and net income growth than those without
This panel will bring together those driving diversity and inclusion within workplaces showcasing the real business rewards of adopting the optimal working environment to incorporate diversity and inclusion.

This session will discuss the future of the smart home and how security will become increasingly important as more information about the home can be procured from sensing devices, and how these new technologies can be used to secure both future and existing smart homes.
The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a great opportunity for organizations to break new ground with innovative products and solutions. It will also give consumers the ability to efficiently access goods and services in real-time at any desired location. However, this results in a new threat landscape and businesses must continue to ensure maximum protection for their assets and the data they hold. This session covers the need for security efforts to be focused and comprehensive when implementing an IoT strategy.
