Connected products are becoming active participants in IoT ecosystems, creating both opportunity and complexity. As “things” interact and transact with each other in IoT ecosystems, there is less predictability and control. By virtue of their connection and ecosystem involvement, products involve more contributors and stakeholders than ever before. Engineering and development work is shifting to dispersed teams with different cadences, cultures, and agendas. Much of the design and engineering of an IoT system includes IT application development that may have previously not been considered as part of the development effort. This is forcing both IT and engineering to be more agile, and to rely upon continuous engineering capabilities such as systems engineering to help manage complexity.
In this keynote, learn about how IBM is investing in new and improved continuous engineering capabilities to help clients not only work more rapidly and effectively, but to generate business results from an investment in engineering for the IoT. We’ll also take an inside look at how two clients, Nationwide and Thomas Jefferson University, are improving their ability to respond more quickly to IoT opportunities.
