Data will then travel less linearly – things on the ‘edge’ form mesh networks and can make their own automated decisions, meanwhile the new big data ‘cloud’ automatically transports your preferences with you as you move, so any environment you are in is tailored to your needs without the need for you to do anything. But where and how, in the scale of hype to reality, can the Internet of Things profit suppliers and users today? What are the pragmatic steps needed to enable the Internet of Things and widespread deployment of wireless sensor networks that are feasible and based on an ROI and not the hope someone else will pay for this?

The Pragmatic Internet of Things Event This IDTechEx event on April  28th and 29th, 2015 in Berlin addresses the opportunity for the Internet of Things. It does not cover hype and unrealistic dreams but addresses the business models, case studies, actions, profitability and missing gaps. There will be examples within key market verticals and we appraise the new enabling technologies coming onstream. It will help you assess your business strategy and timing, the technical, consumer and governmental challenges, new business models and opportunities. Hosted by IDTechEx, a 14 year old market research firm on the topic, this event offers a platform to gain insight, informed analysis and to meet new partners through the conference, tradeshow, masterclasses and networking sessions.
