SOUTH AFRICA - Media OutReach - 5 March 2020 - Over
the last few years, governments and organisations alike have had to facilitate
the explosion of emerging technologies -- such as AI, 5G and underpinning it
all, IoT. This global disruptor requires far more than simply the
infrastructure to support it -- to be used effectively, IoT will also rely on
innovative solutions to keep it secure and sustainable.
spending on IoT devices and services is set to reach $3.7 trillion by 2021
thanks to the expected 20.8 billion connected "things" used globally in 2020.
With these figures in mind, it's not difficult to imagine how organisations
will change, adapt and thrive in the future.
while there is a very real hype surrounding IOT, very few enterprises know how
to make the most of it. That's why Johannesburg is gearing up for the fourth
edition of the Internet of Things Forum
Africa (#IOTFA2020). The two-day conference is set to take place from 25 --
26 March 2020 at Emperors Palace,
Johannesburg, South Africa.
the theme, "Enabling Enterprise Transformation with IoT" IOTFA2020 will see hundreds of Africa's tech
heavyweights equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to plan and implement
successful IoT projects -- to get ahead
of the IoT curve by moving their IoT pilots from project phase into real-world
forum will also look into IoT, Ai and big data convergence, and building
sustainable ecosystems that can truly tap into the potential of this connected
