Creating a vendor neutral strategy for IoT implementations has been a goal for many companies. We have had advocates for protocols, platforms, radio signals and vertical markets, many of these solutions represent advances for IoT. As IoT hits critical mass, the opportunities go beyond the specific and to the applications where the ecosystem is ready to take advantage of the robust interfaces to the Internet of Things and make interoperability a reality.

Keynote Presentation by CEO Advisory Partners: Knowing Makes You Smart…Doing Makes You Successful!
K-02
Henry Mittelman
Founder
CEO Advisory Partners, LLC
If you’re like most people you have been trained from childhood, on through your education and business experiences, that the more knowledge you have the more successful you will be. Well, that’s a MYTH. From my thirty years of business experience, I can tell you that I’ve seen hundreds of really smart knowledgeable business leaders fail miserably. Knowledge and resources are a prerequisite for starting a business. However, more often than not, the successful business leaders were the ones who had the rare ability to maintain a razor-sharp focus on their goals, and accomplish the right things—the most important things—day after day after day. In this 30 minute Keynote, Henry Mittelman, a leading performance improvement expert, business coach/advisor, and best selling author, will share with you three simple ways to change the trajectory of your business. So whether you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, middle manager, or the CEO of a multimillion-dollar corporation, these three simple changes to the way you manage yourself and your business will work for you, and make you dramatically more effective.

K-03
Stephen Mellor
CTO
Industrial Internet Consortium
The fundamental technological trends presently are more connectivity across sectors and more capability to analyze large quantities of data cheaply. But no one knows where those technological trends will take us, so we need to prepare for change. To prepare for this evolution, we must have strategies in multiple areas, at least: Security for everything - Innovation and funding - Learning, deployment and competitiveness.

Augmenting Business Intelligence at the Edge
IIC-02
Michael O’Connell
Chief Analytics Officer
TIBCO Software
AI and machine learning are unlocking unprecedented business value from IIoT sensor data. The cycle of exploratory visual analytics, numerical encoding and embedded rules/models enables real-time surveillance and statistical process control. In combination with digital twins, this cycle supports understanding and fine tuning on software representations of physical assets. Combining sensor data with visual analytics tools lets operators see patterns of equipment productivity, degradation and stoppages. The embedding of numerical models encoding such patterns enables continuous surveillance, decision support and automated interventions when degradation is detected. Such technologies are augmenting business intelligence at the edge, driving operational efficiency and ROI.

Trustworthiness and Endpoint Security in the IIoT
IIC-03
Marcellus Buchheit
President and CEO
Wibu-Systems USA
Trustworthiness is a paradigm put forth by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium) to address the relationship of key system characteristics of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) component and systems. The IIC defines trustworthiness as the degree of confidence one has that a system performs as expected, characterized by the five key elements of safety, security, reliability, resilience and privacy in the face of environmental disruptions, human errors, system faults and attacks. Trustworthiness is a trait used for years to define the characteristics of both IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) systems. In IT, trustworthiness mainly addresses security, reliability, and privacy. On the other hand, trustworthiness in OT mainly addresses safety, reliability and resilience. Addressing the missing key system characteristics in both IT and OT systems and focusing on the relationship of the five key characteristics of the IIoT, trustworthiness paradigm will solve many IT/OT convergence problems, especially conflicts between safety, security, and privacy.

Jennifer Singh
Director, Applied Innovation
Thomson Reuters
The thirst for real-time sensor data is growing astronomically. Hedge Funds are trying to predict aggregate oil production; Consultants are trying to estimate retail sales; Economists are trying to quantify inflation – all ahead of the market. Knowledge workers see real-time sensor data as a key to uncovering signals and insights that were previously unattainable. This presents a huge monetization opportunity for IoT data generators, but also a challenge for those who don’t know how to engage the marketplace. Learn how Thomson Reuters is connecting the ecosystem between data generators and professional consumers, transforming raw data into advanced insights.

How the IIC's Connectivity Framework Guides IIoT Connectivity Selection
IIC-05
Rajive Joshi
Principal Solution Architect - Real-Time Innovations
Industrial Internet Consortium
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape today is a confusing mix of proprietary connectivity technologies and standards. Some are general purpose, some are mostly appropriate for enterprise applications and others are optimized for a narrow set of domain-specific use cases in vertically integrated systems. This confusion hinders the ability to share data that IIoT systems need. Architects need clarity on how to effectively share data between IIoT components and systems. To address this confusion, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) just released the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF). It is the result of years of work by many organizations and is the only extensive connectivity analysis by multiple experts from many companies at a major consortium. More importantly, it not only provides high-level design guidance, but also detailed, useful, tangible and practical guidance for those building IIoT solutions today. In this session, Dr. Rajive Joshi, co-chair of the IIC Connectivity Task Group will discuss the significance of the IICF in accelerating IoT development and will provide an analysis of current standards.

Keynote Presentation by Ingenu: The Genius of IoT - Getting to Smart Not Harder IoT Deployments.
K-07
Dr. Ted Myers
CTO
Ingenu
Technology is supposed to make our lives better. Technology packages up a lot of hard work into an easy to use package. We love to talk about Thomas Edison, Apple, and the other great innovators who put the hard work in to make what was hard, easy. But when it comes to the IoT, we don’t talk about our own innovators, the IoT device makers and what we do to enable them. These device makers do the hard work of combining the connectivity, the sensors, and the hardware into devices that makes our lives easier. Connectivity providers, like Ingenu, have an obligation to provide device makers with IoT connectivity that does the hard work on the wireless side, so they can do the hard work on the hardware side. If connectivity providers neglect their duty to provide true technology, then these innovators are hamstrung in how much simpler they can make our lives because they’ll be busy overcoming the connectivity’s shortcomings. The thing is, not every provider has done the hard work. In this presentation, we highlight some of these surprises and show that real technology brings true simplicity.
