Thank You for Attending

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way people live, businesses compete and government agencies operate. Billions of "things" are being connected to the Internet because the data they generate helps us live healthier and safer lives, run more profitable and innovative businesses, and govern more efficiently and responsively.

In federal government, it’s a foregone conclusion that every agency is a connected agency. Virtually all have deployed a wide array of devices and sensors that collect data on many aspects of their operations. The question, now, is how to turn that IoT data into opportunity.

For example, how can IoT provide defense organizations with more timely and accurate insight into the entire supply chain? How can a connected fleet lower the cost of vehicle operation and improve service? How can building sensors throughout facilities improve the efficiency and security of buildings? How can wearable devices or drones improve worker safety?

This event brought together thought-leaders from government and industry to discuss current and emerging IoT trends, the growing role of IoT as a platform for innovation in government, and key challenges and business drivers that agencies should consider.
