16:40 17:25 Europe/Madrid OI-03 – Standards Essential Patents & the Internet of Things: Key Perspectives

Today, technical standards for interoperability and innovation represent key protocols (Ethernet, WiFi, LTE, etc.) that ensure compatibility and to promote competition. Moving forward these technical standards will underlie the development of an increasingly seamlessly internet-connected Internet of Things. As standards are developed, patented technologies are often contributed to the effort. "Standards essential patents" (SEPs) are patents covering technology implemented into a technical standard to the degree that an implementer of the technical standard must use the patent. Understanding SEP-related legal and policy issues is important to any organization that creates technology or provides products and services related to technical standard.  Join this session to learn about, and engage on, SEP licensing negotiation tactics, international perspectives on IP enforcement, emerging legal and policy developments across key venues, and the ultimate impact on IoT technology developers.

OI-05 The Internet of Humans: Why People Matter in IoT Transformations

Aymeric Sarrazin Siemens CEO, IoT Services
17:30 18:15 Europe/Madrid OI-05 The Internet of Humans: Why People Matter in IoT Transformations

27% of corporate IoT transformation projects are stuck in proof of concept limbo. What’s the solution? This session will explore insights from our latest industry pulse report, highlighting three different case studies connected by one crucial factor: the central role of people in the success and scaling of IoT transformation. An automotive OEM launched a 5-year rollout of an enterprise software solution intended to streamline productivity across the company. An international multichannel distribution company needed to develop, validate and realize a best-in-class mobile solution to support its technicians. A major food packaging company made a significant investment in its equipment, including state-of-the-art automation. But anticipated results remained elusive. What was missing? An IoT transformation plan that included people.

OI-06 – Acting for Food: Is blockchain technology an advantage for customers ?

12:05 12:50 Europe/Madrid OI-06 – Acting for Food: Is blockchain technology an advantage for customers ?

Carrefour was the first retailer in Europe to introduce Blockchain technology in food traceability. The retailer has been offering a new business usage of the blockchain to its customers since March 2018. Through a QRCode, the end-customer can retrieve all relevant information concerning Carrefour Quality Line chickens, eggs, oranges, milk, cheese, etc.  Accordingly, they may know the farmers that bred their specific chicken, the date of their eggs, the level of juice or sugar of their oranges, or see the cows or goats that produced milk.  This session will explore: why the project and why the use of blockchain? How the project was achieved and how it became an international program, and key lessons and next steps of the blockchain-based traceability journey.

15:30 16:15 Europe/Madrid OI-15 – Why Diversity & Inclusion Matter to Your Bottom Line.

Study after study has shown that diversity leads to more creative teams and increases a company’s bottom line. Nowadays, every organization that wants more creative, engaged, and innovative teams is investing in Diversity & Inclusion teams and initiatives. Yet while commitment to diversity has been on the rise, the yield of these commitments is still falling short of the mark. Diversity by itself creates chaos, whereas creating a culture of inclusion and belonging allows you to reap the benefits of having diverse teams. This can be a daunting task to take on, yet it can yield the highest return on your investment in your most valuable asset – your employees! Join us for a conversation about how diversity enables teams to outperform others and learn about ways to create inclusive environments that empower your teams to innovate and create at their best.

Worldwide spending on IoT will reach $745B this year with an expected 14.2B connected IoT devices in operation.  So, it’s no surprise that most every company in the world has IoT systems in place or is at least thinking about how they might be included as part of an overall enterprise strategy.  Most deployments will incorporate intelligence at the edge to pre-process collected data - expected to amount to more than 79 zettabytes by 2025, according to IDC. Join us as end-users on the frontline of enterprise initiatives voice their opinions on key areas in enterprise IoT deployments. The discussion will focus on what is technically effective and socially acceptable, including data ownership, privacy, regulatory compliance and even algorithmic bias – all important as new regulations take shape and laws put in place that dictate just who controls IoT devices and the data they generate.
