If you are one of the over 10,000 attendees coming to VMworld 2017 Barcelona, you are probably experiencing VMworld so-much-to-do-and-so-little-time syndrome.  We have a suggestion to help you find the most interesting sessions and increase up your strategic value to your organization: dive deep into the Internet of Things (IoT).

Why IoT?

Organizations of all sizes are seizing IoT as a way to be more competitive by optimizing operations and to increase revenues with new connected products and services.  87% of companies with over $10M in revenues are either using IoT or planning to in the next year.  As a matter of fact, IDC predicts the worldwide installed base of IoT endpoints to grow from 12.1 billion at the end of 2015 to more than 30 billion in 2020.

Successful IoT initiatives require IT and operations technology (OT) departments to work together and in many cases, IT departments are spearheading the initiatives.  But, because IoT is so new, many IT organizations lack the expertise to take a leadership role which can result in IoT initiatives failing to have the security, data management tools and infrastructure capacity they need to succeed.  Here’s where you can play a critical role for your organization.

Attending these VMworld IoT sessions will give you the expertise your organization needs about the technical infrastructure tools that are critical to successful IoT initiatives:

IoT Sessions

Spotlight – VMware IoT Strategy and Road Map, and How Customers Are Adopting IoT

Smart Hospital Transformation Improves Operations and Outcomes

It is widely recognized that the healthcare industry is rife with inefficiencies that result in increased costs and unnecessary mistakes in the delivery of patient care. The smart hospital of the future is enabled with an IoT and RTLS infrastructure and backed by a robust analytics platform that delivers real-world insights about the healthcare facility in real time. Armed with a comprehensive view of patients, staff and equipment, hospital administrators can quickly identify operational bottlenecks and define a path to reducing inefficiencies that waste time, increase costs and lead to poorer health outcomes. Join leading operational intelligence solutions provider VizExplorer and Enterprise IT leader VMware along with key partners who are building the smart hospital of the future.

Enabling the Edge with Hyper-converged IoT Infrastructure

The data center is moving to the factory, hospital, retail store, oil rig… and beyond. Why are companies realizing the importance of real-time analytics not leaving the place in which it used to make decisions? Come learn why companies have chosen Hyper converged infrastructure for IoT that stays close to the ‘edge’ where devices reside. Learn the risk of sending ALL your real-time data to the cloud and the importance of the hybrid approach when it comes to IoT. An IoT implementation takes a vast amount of time to cobble together, deploy, integrate and configure all the necessary components. Imagine a hyper-converged infrastructure to speed up deployment, reduce latency and risk, and implement IoT faster and easier. Come learn how VMware is enabling customers at the edge with a hyper-converged IoT infrastructure.
