We’re in this IoT thing together


It will be years, perhaps decades, before we fully realize how the Internet of Things (IoT) changed our lives for the better. By then, we won’t be calling it the Internet of Things, or IoT, anymore, and some of us will wax nostalgic as we reflect on the good ol’ analog days.

If we look at where we’re at with IoT today, we’re still in the early stages — and, yes, we still have a long way to go. No one — not a person, company, industry, and/or nation — has cracked this IoT nut, but together, we’re figuring it out.

One lesson we’ve learned so far is that if you’re going to embark on an IoT journey, don’t go it alone. IoT is not a department-level effort; it’s a whole-company effort. And it’s not just your company. Most companies with successful IoT implementations under their belt tout the importance of building out a strong IoT partner ecosystem, including technology vendors, system integrators and consultants.

But don’t take my word for it. Check out the upcoming #SASchat and IoT Slam® Live event below and learn how others are tackling some of the same IoT issues you may be facing. Remember: We’re in this together.

Come #SASchat with us

Join us on June 13 at noon ET (4 p.m. GMT) for #SASchat, an online Twitter conversation, as we explore how the IoT is transforming the way we do business, both professionally and personally. Topics will include:

  1. How do AI and IoT work together?
  2. Do companies need to set up an IoT partner ecosystem to be successful?
  3. Predictive maintenance and asset performance are key IoT drivers. Do you see the IoT moving the needle in new ways?
  4. Where do you see IoT impacting healthcare?
  5. How has IoT impacted your life, professionally and/or personally?

The second IoT Slam® Live event will be in Raleigh, NC, June 21-22,  to further advance the dialogue around the Internet of Things and its impact on cognitive computing, edge computing, artificial intelligence, platforms, big data, analytics and more.

I’m the Director of Emerging Technologies on the SAS Best Practices team, a thought leadership organization at SAS. While hot topics like smart homes and self-driving cars keep me giddy, my current focus is on the Internet of Things, blockchain, big data and privacy – the hype, the reality and the journey. I jumped on the technology fast track 30 years ago, starting with Digital Equipment Corporation. Yes, this was before the internet was born and the sci-fi of yesterday became the reality of today.
