Africa’s premier CIO gathering will be taking a new step in 2019

Identifying the ROI in IoT

More than half of IoT professionals believe that quantifying and identifying a profitable use case for IoT is more important than the lack of available infrastructure or the need for improved device security. With billions of devices soon to be connected, the push towards IoT won’t be a mandatory one and the organisations that are able to pull the trigger fastest with strategic clarity and a clearly defined ROI map will be the ones to come out on top. This session will look at the diversity of the IoT landscape, how to extract value from the single largest asset that IoT produces - the data – and how to tie this all together in a strategy that maximises the return on investment in what will be a mandatory industry shift


Exploiting the digital convergence driven by IoT

A look at the anatomical deconstruction of the Internet of Things makes clear one very sizable benefit of the technology as a whole – its immense and pervasive reach into society. This reach provides the opportunity to curate incalculable amounts of data from billions of sources simultaneously. The very nature of this structure has triggered a digital convergence of three of the most exciting and innovative technologies at present. Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence have the ability to secure this massive system of physical data points whilst artificial Intelligence provides an effective and scalable platform for intelligent interaction and engagement between the billions of devices and the human ecosystem in which it operates. This session will cover the most intriguing opportunities and potential moonshot applications of these three convergent super-technologies
