Get ready to reinvent with mobile, IoT and cognitive

Share this post:

This week in Barcelona, Spain, there will be more than 100,000 people gathering to attend GSMA’s Mobile World Congress 2017 from February 27 to March 2, 2017. The Watson IoT Team will be there to track down the IoT news and insights from world class organizations.

Mobile, IoT, and cognitive

Cognitive computing is not a thing of the future, but a transformative force for business reinvention right now. By 2025, Machina Research estimates that public and private enterprises will be spending over US$1 Trillion on IoT. As the volume of services, data and opportunities continue to expand, enabling technologies and platforms will need to surface and be widely adopted to create an IoT ecosystem across industry sectors.

Enabling IoT solutions should aim to facilitate synergies between use cases to create economies of scale, providing security for the technology and users, and identifying the core network technology that will uphold and meet demand. Interoperability is the first step towards creating IoT ecosystems that cut across use cases and industry sectors, but security has to be a primary focus.
