The international contingent was particularly strong with turnout from across the western world and further afield, including: Ireland, Belgium, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, Israel, China, UAE, Qatar, United States, Nigeria and India.

Fergus Bird, Group Event Manager, UBM Live, said:

"The calibre of the event is truly remarkable. We are delighted to host this annual hub for FM buyers and sellers. Alongside this, we have buzzing seminar theatres that focus on best practice and numerous gritty debates with the opinion makers and trend setters of the industry. We see the big boys meeting and doing business but it is also commonplace for SMEs to sell to MNCs at Facilities Show! It is an inspiring event to attend."

Mitie, the strategic outsourcing company, was the show partner for the 2nd year running. They were joined by other TFMs and major suppliers including - Vinci, Norland, PHS Group, Interserve, Bellrock and Helistrat - who brought much gravitas to the show. One hugely successful new feature of this year's exhibition was a hosted "Meet the Buyer" which involved companies who were exhibiting at the event having face time with senior procurement executives from the TFM companies. There was also a panel debate featuring Martyn Freeman, MD, Mitie facilities management, Gareth Rhys Williams, CEO, PHS Group, Martin Holt, CEO, Bellrock, Tony Sanders, Managing Director, Commercial Division, Interserve, which was one of the most heavily attended of the event.  

In more good news, notwithstanding the move from NEC Birmingham to ExCeL London this year, Facilities Show maintained a good spread of visitors from across the country. Another benefit of the new venue was the co-location of the show with other events within the Protection & Management series covering security, fire, safety & health, energy & environment and service management. In total, over 1700 companies exhibited across the series and 40,000 people attended the ExCeL over the three days in June. Facilities managers attending heralded this one-stop shop for all their needs, a true rarity for the diverse needs of the FM.  

Facilities Show 2015 will take place Jun 16-18 at London ExCeL. For more information, visit: http://www.facilitiesshow.com

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
