Get a Head Start on the Future with the 2019 IoT Innovation Summit

by Ashish Syal, Chief Engineer
This October 23-24, the Sierra Wireless IoT Innovation Summit will take place in beautiful Paris, France, at the Novotel Paris Centre Tour Eiffel.

If you haven’t registered to attend yet, you might be saying to yourself: “Sounds intriguing – but what’s in it for me?”

We’re glad you asked.

The Innovation Summit brings together more than 350 Internet of Things (IoT) developers, architects, product managers, and executives from over 30 countries and gives them an opportunity to meet Sierra Wireless’ management team, network with like-minded individuals, and discover the latest IoT trends.

Do you want to learn how to build IoT proof of concepts or prototypes more quickly, especially by leveraging open source solutions? Do you want to find ways to decrease the pain points around IoT development? Do you want to get educated and empowered on how to succeed in this rapidly evolving space?

If so, the 2019 Innovation Summit is for you. 

A combination of keynotes, developer workshops, and breakout sessions promise something for everyone, whether you’re looking for education, inspiration, or a deep dive on Sierra Wireless’s products and solutions.

Discover, Connect, and Explore

Ready to discover? The theme of this year’s summit is “Distributed Computing from Assets to Cloud,” which means that attendees should expect to learn how Distributed Data Orchestration (DDO) can help them solve complex IoT problems and reduces time to market. As part of this, you will learn how the Octave™ data orchestration platform, the mangOH® open source hardware, and other Sierra Wireless offerings fit together to make DDO a reality.

(While “Distributed Computing from Assets to Cloud” may be the main theme, rest assured that it’s hardly the only area of focus – there will be more than more than 20 tech and ecosystem sessions from Sierra Wireless and our partners. For example, I will be giving a presentation why the IoT will drive the next phase of growth for companies with open-source business models.)

Ready to connect? You’ll have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the experts who build and support the IoT technologies you’re evaluating. Better yet, you can join guided discussions with other individuals who are facing the same IoT challenges you are, and connect with technical communities on new trends and shared interests. While networking with other developers and peers, you might even uncover potential business opportunities, in the form of a new customer or a new partnership. 

Ready to explore what’s possible? The finalists of the Mobile IoT Innovators Challenge 2019 contest will also be presenting at the summit, showcasing the innovation and entrepreneurship that early and later-stage startups are bringing to the mobile IoT space – and the grand prize innovator will be announced and awarded a $50,000 USD cash prize. In addition, we will have multiple IoT customer case studies showcasing Sierra Wireless customers who have used our products to tackle specific use cases across multiple industries.

Our goal is for attendees to leave the Innovation Summit inspired and enthused by the keynote presentations and talks; educated and empowered by multiple hands-on sessions, technical tracks, and tutorials; and ready to embrace the future, starting now.
