How Every Business can win with IoT, Real Time Data, and Agile Development
Connecticut Chapter, National Association of Corporate Directors
January 10, 2019
The rapidly growing availability of new data sources from the Internet of Things (IoT) is creating tremendous pressure on companies of all sizes to become “real-time enterprises” in order to compete effectively. And while “every company is a technology company", that doesn't mean that every company can invest in culture change, collaborative practices, and emerging technologies like major technology businesses.

While businesses of all sizes must improve their customer experiences, grow by developing digitally enabled products and services, and enable a data-driven organization, smaller and medium sized organizations have to be more creative and selective on how to develop applications, how to invest in analytics, and where to innovate with the Internet of Things and other emerging technologies.

Hear from "CIO-turned-digital guru" Isaac Sacolick, President of StarCIO and author of the Amazon bestseller Driving Digital on the culture, practices, and technologies that will enable every business to win in this disruptive, rapidly-changing environment.
