Learn how to make the most of your data at the IoT Platform Academy, part of the IBM IoT Exchange, a must-attend IoT event.

In every industry there are the visionary leaders. The inventors. The challengers. The game-changers. Those who drag their competitors out of complacency and into remedial action. These innovative organizations are making huge strides in efficiency, productivity, cost reduction and customer engagement. And IBM is proud to help them succeed in their transformation journeys. We’ve invited several of these high-performing clients and partners to join us at IBM® IoT Exchange in April to share the secrets of their success. In advance of their presentations, we can tell you that all of them – no matter what their industry – had one important thing in common: they all were focused on optimizing their efficiency and improving customer experience by taking advantage of IoT connectivity and analytics.

You’ve collected the data. Now what?

It’s well established that data can be captured from a myriad of sources, depending upon the organization, industry and discipline. For example, it can come from existing sources such as web and sales activity reports, production statistics, and consumer behavior research. It can come from third parties like weather forecasters and regulatory bodies. And now, thanks to the advent of IoT, important data can be obtained from machine and device sensors remotely situated throughout the world. By connecting and collecting this great wealth of data securely in the cloud, organizations can begin their transformation.

Change minds, change course by capitalizing on IoT data with AI

As our clients will tell you, the most critical phase of their transformation, the one that completely changed their mindset, was the application of analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to their vast stores of data. Building on the IBM Watson® IoT Platform to unlock important insights, this strategic maneuver helped them add tremendous value to their organization.

And here’s the best part: you can do it, too. You can start small and then scale up as you get a few successes under your belt. Join us at the IBM IoT Exchange to hear how others have done this already.
