Can IoT make money?
Wide area, low power communications coupled with the advent of technologies such as iSim and edge processing afford consumer brands the ability to add intelligent connectivity to their products giving customers a robust and transparent experience. But do brands really need to do this and can it help with the rapid changes in retail? From the perspective of premium brands, we discuss how IoT coupled with traditional business methods can drive exciting new business model thinking to solve some of today’s challenges.

Jennifer Didoni, Head of Cloud Portfolio, Vodafone
This talk will cover how the convergence of cloud and networks is opening up new possibilities to solve problems where #millisecondsmatter. The centre of gravity of data is moving to the edge, and Vodafone is launching edge computing services that combine the best of both worlds – low latency, highly responsive compute with the agility, flexibility and pay per use consumptions models of public cloud.
