The IoT is a hot topic, and it's high on the agenda for many businesses and organisations. But working out a strategy can be challenging. To help our customers find out about the benefits of IoT technologies, we hosted an event at the Science Museum in London for 50 of our corporate and public sector customers.
The theme was 'the Internet of Things 'how to turn big ideas into business advantage’. We wanted to show that we have the expertise, skills and knowledge ' through our network, partners, tools and people ' to help customers on their digital transformation journey.
Keynote speaker, Ben Hammersley, writer and futurologist, gave a speech about the pace of disruption, how the IoT is forcing us to change the way we work, and the opportunity this gives us to find better ways of working.
Customers also heard from other members of our expert panel, like Colm O’Neill, Managing Director, Major Business & Public Sector; Tom Baker, CIO Major Corporate; and Guillaume Sampic, IoT Strategy Director - all from BT - plus Jon Webb-Peploe, Portfolio and Service Creation Manager, Cisco.
During the Q&A session, we invited customers to ask the panel questions and exchange ideas. We wrapped up the event with a reception where customers had the chance to meet and talk to our experts.
