Inside the Internet of Things at AppSphere 2016

I always look forward to seeing what’s in store for emerging technology at AppSphere. It’s been an exciting year already for all things connected, from wearables and sensors, to the enterprise ecosystem around the Internet of Things–and it’s only growing. Today, every opportunity around the Internet of Things represents the potential for exponential growth. In IDC’s Global IoT Decision Maker Survey, research found that 31.4% of companies are already working with an Internet of Things initiative, with an emphasis on cloud computing and analytics, and an additional 43% said they are looking to deploy their projects in the next year. The potential value of IoT is clear now; over 55% of those surveyed believed that an investment in IoT and emerging technology would give them market leverage.

It’s clear the value of the Internet of Things is growing with opportunity, and it’s critical for businesses adopting its technology to secure the right solutions to deliver the ideal experience to their customers. This year at AppSphere, we’re getting the best resources to share best practices, technical deep dives, and hands-on education to deliver everything you need to know on making the most of the IoT landscape in your enterprise.

Take a look at some of these sessions, and even more on the AppSphere session catalog you’ll have the chance to see live in a few weeks!

The Internet of Things in the Enterprise: Why your Monitoring Strategy Should Include Connected Devices

Amazon Echo and Google Nest have changed our lives as consumers. As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, it can disrupt traditional business models. When connected devices start communicating with applications, the end user experience can be severely impacted. This talk highlights some of the unique challenges that monitoring millions of IoT devices will bring. It also emphasizes the features of a good IoT-ready performance monitoring solution.

Since IoT initiatives are new for many businesses, many have not completely explored what supporting them will mean to their monitoring strategies. Coping with the new ways users interact with applications across multiple platforms represents a unique challenge. In order to tackle the IoT obstacles, it’s increasingly necessary to develop a monitoring strategy that considers connected devices.

  • How connected devices impact the bottom line of your business
  • Why connected devices need a monitoring strategy
  • Best practices for monitoring connected devices

You already know about all the ways the IoT influences the user experience, but with about 43% of companies adopting IoT by the end of 2016, you may need to face the challenges of monitoring those user experiences sooner than you think. Join us for this session on Tuesday, November 15 at 2:30 PM.

Customer-Centric Transformation in the IoT Age: A Panel of Enterprise Innovators

Join us for a lively panel discussion with technology leaders from major global brands on how cloud, mobile, and connected applications are fundamentally changing their engagement with customers.

This panel will explore the new trends in IoT from leaders in the field and demonstrate how a customer-centric approach is necessary to navigate the technology trends. Not until recently were we able to hail an Uber or control the thermostat of our homes with just the sound of our voice. Technology companies are setting the tone of how users expect to interact with applications, so businesses need to keep up with the trends or risk being left behind. Come join innovators in IoT and get their perspective on how being customer-centric in their design has allowed them to capitalize on IoT trends. You can find this session on Tuesday, November 15 at 3:40 PM.

Stay tuned! We’re bringing you more sneak peeks on these sessions and even more in the weeks to AppSphere. In the meantime, make sure you’ve registered–spots are filling fast!

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
