IoTNext

The objective of the annual conference IoTNext is to bring the entire Internet of Things (IoT) community together to debate and deliberate on the current developments on the ground and share what to expect in near future, converseand consider the upcoming technologies and business trends, connect with global counterparts and showcase the most innovative startups from India.IoTNext started in 2015 and  is now the most premier IoT conference in India with a significant global participation.

In IoTNext 2019, we step back from just the hyper-connected IoT world and see the confluence of multiple technologies that are starting to merge together creating a world of enchanted immersive experience where data holds the key!

IoT is making the physical/real world digital while AR/VR is making the digital world accessible to us in the real world, creating a confluence with ‘Digital Twin’ and an ‘Enchanted Reality’. Both are being fed by enormous amount of data which is getting crunched and analyzed at the edge and on the cloud. AI and ML is pushing the limits of data aggregation while data ownership, trust and privacy are questioning the same. The traditional concepts of a product have morphed beyond immediate gratification and gross margins to an immersive experience, continuous improvements with future revenue streams. Building partnerships with new business models is being experimented with debates and discussions on data ownership, data privacy, data security and date governance.

IoTNext 2019 is expected to see more than 1200 delegates, 25 plus exhibitors, 50+ start-ups including several high-profile policy makers. 

“IoTMatrix is a new word we are coining to cover the emerging connected, ambient, intelligent phygital (i.e.., physical+digital) world. IoT is making the Physical or the Real-World Digital. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are making the Digital world accessible to us in the real world, both creating a confluence, or an ‘Enchanted Reality’ ” - Arvind Tiwary on IoT Matrix
