  • Expressing technology using business terms
    Expressing technology using business terms
    Andrew Bird, Chief Digital Officer & EA Visionary Recorded: Dec 11 2017 34 mins
    Technology is a tool, pure and simple. It’s part of a capability that along with people and processes that solves a business challenge.

    It's all very well having a great idea, but if you can't justify the benefit you may be unlikely to get the budget.

    The future of retail or how IoT technologies created a smart shopping experience
    Matthew Stead, Chief Architect, Oryzus Consulting Recorded: Jun 14 2017 21 mins

However, in the near future, specialists predict that these technologies will become a thing of the past and IoT will dominate the world.

    Join this webinar to discover how shopping centres will be transformed from a bricks and mortar purchasing experience to an open sourced market place.

    Allow Matthew to discuss how the market is changing, the challenges this will cause and the application of the advances in IoT technology which will drive a shopping revolution.
  • IoT and Blockchain. A match made in heaven?
    IoT and Blockchain. A match made in heaven?
    Andrew Bird : Chief Digital Officer & EA Visionary Recorded: Jun 13 2017 47 mins
    As devices become more intelligent, autonomous and self-aware. They will form part of a fractal universe in which they will deliver against unknown use cases. This will be at a scale and order of magnitude far more complex than perhaps humans could simplify. Yet we have merely scratched the surface.

    Block chain seeks to be the golden goose to the IoT security dilemma. Perhaps it’s the common thread to weave the people, homes, cities and governments together. Is block chain the new “Magna Carta” the new order to span the globe and standardise interop between devices?

    Join this webinar to discover how IoT and block chain will support each other’s victories and overcome the significant challenges ahead.

    Allow Andrew to share his insight as to how the market is changing, the challenges this will cause and the application of the advances in both IoT and block chain which will drive an even more connected future.
