June 29, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “The International Energy Agency expects global energy demand to increase by 37% by 2040…utility companies are finding solutions thanks to the Internet of Things” (Andrew Meola). Yes! IoT is rescuing struggling Utilities. How? By enhancing renewable energy from solar and wind, boosting energy efficiencies with smart grids, smart meters, and home automation systems, and giving Utilities data to analyze and improve operations. The experts speak. Anil Parekh, Accenture: “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road” (Stewart Brand). Tom Raftery, SAP: “When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole” (Tesla). Ken Pierce, SAP: “It is not the strongest of species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one that is most adaptable to change” (Leon Megginson). Join us for IoT for Utilities: Run Smart!
