FOCUS ON IOT AND MOBILITY
Among the fastest technological evolutions and certainly the most remarkable of last years, the Internet of Objects (IoT) and Mobility – in every sense – will catch modern decision makers’ attention for sure. Indeed, it is clear that connected and mobile objects’ omnipresence represents a major challenge for organizations since their infrastructures and ICT networks are now opening to new types of systems and applications, with unknown constraints until then in terms of performance, reliability, disponibilty and security in particular. Because who says IoT inescapably thinks of widely spread and permanently connected platforms.
And if you consider, as an IT manager or as a company boss, that IoT is in no way a forward-looking technology that you should be interested in from now on, you should know that according to the market research firm Gartner, the 2017 inventory revealed nothing less than 8.4 billions of connected objects in the world, a rise of 31 % compared to 2016. And by 2020, IoT will represent no fewer than 20.4 billions of connected objects, that is to say a market evaluated to 2.000 billions of dollars. And if IoT applications will be largely mainstream, fields like industry, transports, public sector (intelligent cities, etc.) and health will be also widely impacted.
To apprehend those evolutions and understand those technologies’ big stakes, Mark-Com Event offers on May 31st 2018 in Namur Expo, in parallel of the 2018 ICT Infrastructure trade show, an event exclusively dedicated to IoT and Mobility. This event builds up on 2017 ICT Infrastructure Forum in May 2017 in Palais des Congrès of Namur and on 2017 Security Forum that took place in the end of last October in Château Bayard of Dhuy (Namur).
François Vajda, organizer : « Users will come to get informations on last developments, technological evolution and market supply. Visitors will have the possibility of meeting the main suppliers and exchange their practical experiences with them as much as with other colleagues. And, who knows, build new commercial contacts and engage new business relations. »
In parallel of this event, the 2018 ICT Infrastructure trade show, exclusively dedicated to Data Center, Cloud and Security themes, will also stand in Namur Expo.
