Connected Support in the Connected World
Every provider of a product or service understands the critical role of post-sale support, but what’s less well understood is how dramatically the nature of that support has shifted when it comes to the IoT. It ain’t the same ol’, same ol’, and it’s no longer about sitting by the phone waiting for something to break and then fixing it This distinguished group of panelists will tackle tough questions about supporting the Internet of Things, such as: How do you seamlessly support both customers and field operations? What’s the role of self-support in the connected world? How does the IoT make it easier to use “contextual intelligence” in supporting customers? How are concerns about privacy and security likely to impact our ability to connect to a customer’s devices and systems?

Home Automation: What’s Cool Beyond the Thermostat?
While the thermostat gets a lot of attention, the reality is home automation has an incredible amount of gadgets to manage, from refrigerators to doorbells. The question then is not what can be managed, but how can we manage everything? It’s not about the IoT device it’s about getting control over entire house no matter where you are. Your proximity and your ability to remotely manage blend together to create the home of the future. Are these capabilities transcending into the office building of the future and the way we work today?

IoT & Autos: What are We Looking for Assistance or Autonomy?
IBM Watson IoT
The Automakers, and the Smart Phone Industry all see opportunity when it comes to a new generation of vehicles. Where are the opportunities and what are the realities the automakers have to face. Is the legacy of manufacturing an advantage or an obstacle to success? Does software rule, even when dealing with thousands of parts.

Managing an IoT Business is difficult. Is there a way to Simplify It?
Every IoT Enterprise / Service Provider is talking about how to increase serviceability and manageability to stay ahead of the competition, diversify connectivity suppliers and reduce costs, all of which lead to massive supply chain complexities. Deploying Business Intelligence solutions to solve these issues is mission-critical, but expensive and timely to implement, but new Over the Top providers are emerging and promise quick results while providing deep insight into your business. This session will explore those options that solve the complexities around IoT Connectivity and reduce the costs associated with them.

Testbed Use Case 1: Industrial Digital Thread, Asset Efficiency and the Manufacturing Machine
Field engineers and service teams often lack the data and digital insights needed to assess and troubleshoot problems in their large industrial assets. The root cause is usually hidden in design, manufacturing processes, supply chain logistics or production planning. But without the right data and digital insights, it's hard for QA engineers to pinpoint the root cause of problem.
The Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) testbed drives efficiency, speed, and flexibility through digitization and automation of manufacturing processes and procedures. This test bed case study focuses on a service engineer that observes a component that is wearing and degrading at an unexpected rate. Leveraging the IDT Testbed, she identifies the correlation between that part’s field performance data and its associated manufacturing machine, operations, and quality validation data when it was produced. Through this insight, she identifies the cause and selects a work scope to repair the part.

Three Software Stacks Required for IoT Architectures
The LAMP (Linux/Apache HTTP Server/MySQL/PHP) stack has dominated web infrastructures, in the IoT it is believed a similar open source stack will dominate IoT deployments. This presentation will look at the new technology requirements and architectures required for IoT solutions. It will identify three stacks of software required by any IoT solution, and finally present how open source communities, such as the Eclipse IoT community, are already supplying the critical software technology needed by IoT solution providers.
