Is it a Smart Product, a Connected Product or an IoT Product?

Tuesday, Mar 14, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm          


We hear the terms smart product, connected product and IoT product used interchangeably all the time, but do these terms all mean the same thing?  The answer is a resounding NO!

Understanding the differences is key to understanding the Internet of Things, and to explaining why some IoT products fail, why even entire product categories fail, and yet others succeed – sometimes massively.  The x-factor in IoT is creating incremental value.

Attend this talk to take away a base understanding of what IoT is and what it’s capable of.  Also, check out Bruce’s The IoT Product Versus the Smart and Connected Product for a good foundational introduction to his talk.
