Our keynote presenters on the day are Dells’s Pat O’Duffy, IoT Solution Architect and Ivan O’Connor, Head of IOT, Action Point Technology Group.

They will give an overview of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), the increased quantity of data being produced, how it’s processed and the benefit of analytics.

The presentation will also include a high-level overview of the IoT and how it’s being adopted in industry. Particular focus will be given to the different data points and the value of processing at the edge, in the cloud, and the key benefits made by analysing the data.

This will include an overview of Dell’s activity in this space.

The event will include a number of hands-on demonstrations and a tour of the facility.
