The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad term being used to cover technologies that give network connectivity to everyday objects, from wearable computers to common products. What’s behind all the excitement about the Internet of Things? How will companies benefit from IoT technologies? What will be the impact on consumers? What strategies should companies use to take advantage of IoT technologies, and which technologies will dominate the IoT? This virtual event will feature case studies from early adopters. Learn from industry experts, market leaders and analysts who will share their insights about overcoming technical, user and governmental challenges, and how to create effective business models using the power of the Internet of Things.

Creating Business Value by Enabling the Internet of Things

Radio frequency identification and RF sensors are one way in which companies can link things—assets, products, inventories and environments—to the internet. Learn how RFID technologies are being added to products to enhance their functionality by connecting them to the internet, and how RFID and sensors are being employed to make environments smarter and more responsive. In addition, hear what strategies leading-edge companies are employing to take advantage of the emerging Internet of Things.

The Journey from Industrial RFID to The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

It’s time for RFID to grow up. A provocative statement about an industry whose products have already experienced a lifetime’s worth of evolution. However, the IIoT is changing the game when it comes to asset management, real-time location and connected devices for industry. Asset information is increasingly available real-time and it’s more than just simple identification. It’s intelligence, right down to the individual asset level. More than simply where an asset is – how long has it been there, where does it needs to go, when is its next service/replacement? A 360° feedback loop where end users receive asset status and then send instruction back is essential. How will RFID get to the next level? What product features will enable true asset-level intelligence? What is the price impact as these evolve? How will other hardware and software technologies affect this growth? Join us to discuss these and more about how RFID must “grow up” and grow into the IIoT.

Enterprise Sensor Integration: Your Gateway to the Industrial IoT

The Internet of Things is fueling a fourth Industrial Revolution, and with it comes significant interoperability challenges for industries. This presentation will show you how Boeing subsidiary Tapestry Solutions has addressed the interoperability challenges with its Enterprise Sensor Integration (ESI) technology. ESI is an innovative, sensor-agnostic platform that ensures interoperability across all brands, manufacturers and ERP systems. Cloud-based and affordable, ESI interfaces with major RFID vendors, as well as sensor-based solutions from Oracle, SAP and other industry leaders. ESI has global enterprise scalability that ensures total asset visibility of parts, equipment and processes, anywhere in the world. Tapestry rolled out ESI at 50 Boeing plants, where the system seamlessly connects more than 100 sensor technologies. ESI saved Boeing more than $100 million during its first year alone and continues to generate savings each year by improving productivity, reducing inventory costs and increasing supply chain visibility.
