Presentation Abstract

We’ve had lots of great business speakers over the last eight months so for this meeting I thought I would tie things together in more of an educational format. This presentation will cover part of the full day workshop I am conducting at, Internet of Things World at Moscone Center, a couple of weeks later: We will cover the following subjects:

  • The business basics of IoT
  • What is an IoT business?
  • The changing customer relationship (if time permits)
  • Value generation
  • IoT business models

Hope to see you there, Bruce
