Imago Techmedia announces launch of Connected World Expo – The Internet of Things

- Imago Techmedia launches new event focused on smart thinking for the Internet of Things -

London, Monday 3 March: Imago TechMedia, the specialist technology event organiser, has unveiled a ground-breaking new event, Connected World Expo - the Internet of Things. It will run from 21-22 April 2015 at London Olympia and will be co-located with Connected Business Expo, the leading communication and collaboration technology event.

Connected World Expo is set to be a pioneering B2B exhibition for the next generation of smart technologies and services to support the Internet of Things (IoT), and will showcase the current state of the market and its likely future direction.

A major theme of the event will be the significant benefits that IoT will bring to end-user companies from a wide variety of industry sectors over the coming years. It's about more than just the proliferation of smart devices: attendees will get the chance to learn about the full range of technologies required to capitalise on the opportunities this game-changing trend will deliver from the sophisticated networks, systems and software needed to collect and store the data that smart devices transmit, to the tools needed to analyse it and to turn it into actionable intelligence.

Vertical market sessions will discuss innovations, strategies and best practice that enable business advantage from next generation technology, software, and services for Smart cities, Smart commerce, Smart healthcare, Smart vehicles and Smart Industry; while expert technology sessions will focus on the next generation choices for devices, platforms, infrastructure and applications in the IoT space. Connected World Expo will allow attendees to meet with leading suppliers of the technologies that underpin IoT, as well as gain a deeper understanding of its potential, through a wealth of case studies and practical demonstrations.

"This is an incredibly exciting time for the technology industry as we shift from the internet of people to the internet of things. Smart devices are everywhere - from manufacturing plants and oil rigs to hospitals and offices" says Duncan Kirk, chief operating officer, Imago Techmedia.

"No industry sector will be untouched by this trend - although organisations in the insurance, utilities and manufacturing sectors will be among the first to start realising its potential. Connected World Expo will enable attendees to explore the potential impact that a new world of M2M interactions will have on their own market sector and to learn how they can benefit from the opportunities, such as improved productivity, efficiency and growth, that the Internet of Things will deliver."

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, will discuss how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He will discuss how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
