IoT at CeBIT 201726 October/ 2016
Everyone is talking about the Internet of Things. When it comes to its actual implementation, however, many companies are still looking for the right strategy. At CeBIT 2017, we are therefore creating an IoT world for both exhibitors and trade visitors, which enables you to benefit from establishing contact with potential partners and customers.
The market research firm Gartner predicts that by 2020, 21 billion devices will be connected to the Internet. Cisco even anticipates an increase to 50 billion devices. Either way, the Internet of Things has the potential to fundamentally transform entire industries by changing business models and processes for numerous companies.
Manufacturers link their physical products with Internet-based back-end services, and Internet companies expand their service portfolio by combining sensor data with physical objects. As a result, new providers occupy the market with innovative IoT offerings that cleverly combine physical products and Internet-based services. This leads to new data-driven business models. Nevertheless, change always comes with uncertainty too. The display "Internet of Things" at CeBIT provides you orientation.
IoT ecosystems at the focus of the presentation
With the "Internet of Things" area, we are creating a dedicated IoT area for CeBIT exhibitors and visitors. The focus is on components and technologies of complex IoT ecosystems. In addition, we are making the Internet of Things come alive with exciting end-to-end solutions from vertical markets.
Among others, these include:
- Smart Home
Valuable contacts with partners and potential customers
Today's increasing level of interconnectedness makes partnerships between different companies more important than ever. CeBIT therefore gives you access to experienced businesses and potential partners for your next IoT project. Compared to 2016, the IoT Summit will be considerably expanded to guarantee an in-depth transfer of knowledge as part of this high-profile forum.
Furthermore, the IoT pavilion is regarded as the first stop for visitors. It is situated directly next to the areas of M2M, telematics and connectivity, creating important synergies. In this central location companies of all sizes can present their expertise, analyse visitor requirements and establish promising relationships.
