Internet of Things (IoT)
Big Data
Artificial Intelligence
4th Industrial Revolution

The chances are that you’ve heard these phrases and that these major technological advances are going to revolutionise our lives and the way we do business. But what are they?

Internet of Things (IoT) involves connecting ordinary objects to a network, either ‘Smart’ objects with built in connectivity or normal objects enhanced with IoT devices. This gives you the ability to monitor, measure and track whatever you need to. The Big Data generated can be analysed and used by Artificial Intelligence in many different ways to better understand and improve your business.

This is the 4th Industrial Revolution.

This Seminar will introduce you to these concepts and their impact on global business. In addition:

  • We will explore the variety of devices and systems available and what they can do.
  • We will take you through the practicalities of the technology and how to design, manage and deploy an IoT network in your business.
  • We will discuss how to evaluate pros and cons of potential systems.
  • We will work through the importance of identifying and focusing on key operational aspects to ensure you source the correct technological solutions to fit your need.

This Seminar will ensure you have the knowledge and tools to master the changing technological landscape and revolutionise your business.
