Big Data and Analytics: In M2M

April 17, 2014

The M2M SIG Presents…



Big Data and Analytics:

In M2M

There has been a lot of talk about the potential of Big Data applied to the Internet of Things. The technology has matured to the point where remote sensors and devices generate tons of Internet data, often in real time, and millions of connected customers eagerly seek valuable health, security, and financial information.  In order to seize related business opportunities, IOT business leaders must deftly identify potential for delivering value and deliver solutions that will reduce massive amounts of streamed data to knowledge.  This panel will discuss ways that M2M analytics can help connect the dots between big data and mass markets, what various companies are doing in this space, what gets most traction and what gets funded. We will also look into new business models that are emerging in this field.
