Evolution from Big Data to Smart Data
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from big data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as "smart systems" provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. Paul Turner, technology evangelist for Cloudian, will address how and where we'll see smart data first make an impact.
How the Internet of Things Will Be Realized Through the Light Bulb
One of the biggest barriers for adoption of IOT in commercial and residential buildings is the cost of installing and maintaining new sensors inside existing buildings. By replacing existing lights with LED + Wireless Controls + New sensors, one can create a Smart Building by leveraging existing infrastructure that already exists inside all buildings. New use case includes energy management, occupancy optimization, and security. NGP as an investor in this space brings unique insights that we can share.

Please join Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, for an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
How Databases Can Stop Playing Catch-Up with the IoT
The IoT is upon us, but today's databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale.
Transforming Brick and Mortar Retail through IoT
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, we'll be looking at the transformation of the Retail customer experience in Brick and Mortar stores. Questions we'll address include: will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodology to bring new IoT solutions to market? Warning: this session will be interactive and involve current prototypes for discussion. Be prepared to go beyond theory and get into application.
The Business Case for IoT
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the "newest shiny object syndrome" is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity. Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools to creating feedback loops improving product design to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from disparate devices and applying data analytics and, ultimately, business logic to that data. Properly implemented (and I do mean properly), IoT can effectively deliver these business outcomes.
The Analytics Value Chain - The Key to Delivering Value in IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics tools incorporating predictive analytics, prescriptive analytics, and machine learning for rapid development and innovation to divine timely value out of IoT networks. In this technical session, Dr. Dale Skeen, Co-Founder & CTO of Vitria Technology, will introduce the concept of the analytics value chain with real-life case studies to show how customers across the industrial, enterprise, and consumer segments are creating significant business value by addressing timely outcomes.
IoT and the Rise of Hyper-Contextual Marketing
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn't exist in traditional PC or Mobile Web applications. This rich data, or "context", enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. We'll explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by tapping into this powerful aspect of the IoT. We'll also review some emerging techniques being used for hyper-contextual engagement in consumer IoT apps.
Service Providers Maintain Value Through IoT-Cloud Service Centric Use Cases
IoT is the next development of how the Internet is applied to the world. TAM for M2M/IoT is estimated at $19 trillion. The IoT device count in the billions but will not traverse the service providers' networks. Service providers and vendors are struggling to understand how to map the TAM dollars to real use cases, optimal technology approaches, and profitable business models. This session focuses on the Service Provider/Operator phase transformations that will occur. In Phase I Service Providers will focus primarily on building out their infrastructure virtualization. In Phase II Service Providers will focus on monetization or IoT business. IoT is the next development of how the Internet is applied to the world. TAM for M2M/IoT is estimated at $19 trillion.

Don't Quit, IoT Retrofit. An Open Cloud Services Platform to Solve Water Scarcity.
A producer of the first smartphones and tablets, presenter Lee M. Williams will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. Lee's presentation will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into our retrofit option that reverse engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
Critical Communications for IoT
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives isn't the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There's a huge opportunity for "industrial IoT" and "Smart Cities" to impact the world in the same capacity - especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action. This session will cover the opportunity for various industries like healthcare, manufacturing and government to enable two-way and multi-modal communications between devices and the "need-to-know" people during critical situations to reduce the impact of negative incidents, and even, save lives.

Containers & Microservices Expo to Be Colocated with @ThingsExpo Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.
Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
