jp_batraIoT – Adopt or Perish!
….and its impact on YOUR job or business!
JP Batra

Provocative as the topic is, it is also the reality of what is about to happen to many businesses, industries’ business models, and jobs due to IoT. It has the hidden latency, or potential power that will not be readily visible until it is too late for job functions, businesses that don’t keep tabs on this change, adopt it; or adapt to it. This is a change that many businesses may tend to ignore, especially the ones that are still expanding in their markets thinking all is well. Or they are oblivious to the impending change, or are too busy surviving to notice the oncoming tsunami of IoT driven changes and the disruption to existing business models! This is one management lesson not to be missed by anyone – whether you hold a job, or own a business!!

Come attend this presentation to understand how IoT is transforming everything. After this session, you will be prepared to deal with the oncoming changes and profit from it!
