WORKSHOP: Be an Internet of Things (IoT) Superstar

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Don’t get left behind as companies around the world create competitive advantage by gathering valuable data through IoT connected devices!

Have an IoT device with your morning cappuccino? Starbucks is now installing IoT sensors in their coffee machines to gather information and securely share it. Need to monitor the location, speed, gas mileage, tire pressure, weight, outside temperature and other data regarding your fleet of trucks? Trucking companies are doing this now with IoT sensors. Want to monitor your patients who are at risk for heart attacks or diabetes? A new generation of connected wearables allow healthcare providers to do just that.

In this workshop, you will get hands on experience in setting up your IBM i to connect with and gather data from IoT devices. We will show you what software you need and how to start building the programs that will allow you to gather and process data. We will talk about the kinds of sensors you can use to gather data and the kinds of data you can collect. You can then use your imagination to initiate IoT adoption and drive competitive advantage for your company through the use of IoT data.
