Webinar: The Power of Context – Making IoT Relevant and Practical

April 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


You’ve likely heard the basic premise behind the Internet of Things (IoT) and may even have your own projects in the works. But, do you know what separates data overload from data insight? It’s context. And, it’s easy to lose.

Listen to a panel of industry experts discuss how to walk the fine line between “data chaos” and data which is relevant, consumable, and can be turned into very practical applications.  Learn how to tell the difference between “so what?” reports and “code red!” triggers which demand fast action—or even automated responses.

Make sure your IoT project truly drives results.

Key takeaways

  • How to effectively contextualize data for business decisions
  • Tips for collecting and consuming data effectively
  • The importance of cloud deployment’s elasticity in storing contextual data
  • How condition-based monitoring can trigger a maintenance call
  • Steps to prioritizing practical applications of IOT and projecting the ROI
