We normally ask delegates who register for BLN events what questions they’d like to get answered on the day and what problems they’re trying to solve. It’s not a very scientific poll but this time it’s generated some interesting responses. The biggest theme so far is from people trying to pin down a definition:
- ‘I need to understand the landscape’
- ‘Get beyond the hype and really understand the use cases’
- ‘Clarify IoT in my head’
- ‘Discovering more clues on the scope of the “IoT” concept’
Beyond that, nearly as many people are looking to identify partners: it seems some of the opportunities here are too big for one business to deal with on their own:
- ‘find partners for great IoT projects’
- ‘Develop our ecosystem’
And a third, significant, portion of questions are those talking about funding, where to get it and how to make themselves attractive to investors. Surely a good sign.
If you’d like to put your questions to the panels at IoT13, you can find more information on the event at the microsite here.
