Delivering on the vision for an Internet of Everything and Everyone depends upon the ability to manage and process vast amounts of data; this means turning Big Data into Smart Information. However the realization of this vision is based on existing systems and infrastructure which contains known weaknesses. This seminar will describe the vision for the Internet of Everything and Everyone and the benefits that this could bring together with the security and privacy risks and how these risks are balanced by the rewards.

Overview

The emerging technologies of cloud computing, big data and the internet of things provide new opportunities for organizations to be more agile and to connect with their customer, partners and associates in different ways. While these new technologies bring benefits they also bring risks and the challenge is to balance risk with reward. This seminar will provide the insights from the leading analyst firm KuppingerCole on how to achieve this balance.

Cloud Computing can change the way in which IT is paid for and increase flexibility for IT to respond to changing customer demands. However it is also easy to become locked in to a particular cloud service, to have to pay more than you expect and to be liable for more than you think. This seminar will lead you through the ways in which organizations are using the cloud successfully and provide a roadmap to help you avoid the pitfalls.

The IoT (Internet of Things) is more an internet of everything and everyone. Behind every “thing” there is a person; this may be a customer, a partner or an associate. For this reason KuppingerCole calls it the IoEE (Internet of Everything and Everyone). The information provided by the things make it possible for you to get closer to your customers, partners and associate to deliver better services to them and to provide better support.
