VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- If you see people walking around drinking from vases, blenders, watering cans and piggy banks this Thursday, do not be alarmed. Slurpee Canada has announced its first-ever Bring Your Own Cup Day promotion that'll take place this Thursday, March 20 at its 488 stores from B.C. to Ontario.

"We saw what a success the Bring Your Own Cup Day promotion was in Australia so we thought what better place to do this than in Canada where we sell more Slurpee drinks than anywhere else," says Raj Kapoor, Vice President and General Manager, 7-Eleven Canada.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
