The Internet of Things (IoT) is radically changing the manufacturing business model, opening up new opportunities toward a service oriented business model for manufacturers.

According to the recently published Vodafone IoT Barometer, an annual study of how IoT is transforming business, the proportion of companies adopting IoT has more than doubled from 12% in 2013 to 29% in 2017. In addition, the percentage of companies with more than 50,000 connected devices active has doubled in the last 12 months. Many of your competitors are already devoting as many resources to IoT as they do to other high profile technologies, such as mobile, cloud and analytics.

Join us as we will highlight key findings from the Vodafone IoT Barometer and explain how IoT technologies can enable your company to deploy new solutions and services. We will demonstrate that IoT can not only reduce your costs but also enhance your customer experiences and deliver new business values.

While companies can take advantage of IoT technology for business transformation, IoT deployment on a global scale can be very complex. Learn how to plan and execute global IoT deployment smoothly. You will also hear real-world customer examples of businesses that are taking advantage of IoT technology today.
