Resource Management: Waste Not Want IoT
Buddy Platform Inc
Whether the weather is the result of El Nino, Global Warming or the butterfly effect, the need to manage natural resources has never been greater. Yet the solutions have to be distributed intelligently. From earthquake monitoring to weather forecasting, the need to develop predictive and prescriptive resource management systems is on the forefront of IoT technology.

It’s all about the Phone: When IoT is all Software and You
Nokia Growth Partners
Some systems like Uber have no sensors other than the phone, but manage to be so contextual with positioning information in real time that services are immediate. This is a discussion of the how, when, where and why that phones are sufficient to be the end points for IoT services.

Usage Driven: IoT in the Shared Economy
Smart Texas Alliance
If you can measure it; you can charge for it! If you can partition it; you can share for it? IoT is a game changer for the shared economy where services like Uber, Lyft and ZipCar have been made possible. This panel discusses how the shared economy manages usage driven services.

Evaluating IoT Edge Device Protocols and How-tos of a Cloud Framework that Works
Networking embedded sensor systems is by no means a new concept, but connecting them to the cloud using IP-based technology is. From MQTT to CoAP, XMPP to DDS, each edge connectivity protocol has its strengths, weaknesses, and optimal use cases. But as important as careful protocol selection is, after evaluating the tradeoffs you need to get connected with a cloud framework that works.
In this hands-on workshop, learn about the costs and benefits of various IoT edge device protocols and how they impact device design. Then, using the lightweight MQTT protocol, connect an STMicroelectronics Discovery evaluation kit to the AWS IoT cloud and find out how to best utilize the service’s rules engines, visualization tools, analytics facilities, and other features to quickly build truly responsive, end-to-end IoT systems.

The Power in the Gateway: Solving Distribution
Whether the IoT implementation is brand new or servicing existing infrastructure, IoT gateways serve a vital role. Aggregating, distributing and securing are major functions of IoT gateways, but the role of an IoT gateway is even greater. Learn what requirements should guide the selection of IoT gateways when designing an IoT solution.

Remote Monitoring and Management
Trusted Computing Group
Controlling devices remotely is often talked about without discussing security. However maintaining access to systems creates opportunities for management policies to be enacted and enforced. This panel discusses how remote monitoring and management systems impact security solutions.
