LPWA technologies enable low power communications over a large area, typically at low bit rates. With billions of sensors capturing data from the physical world, there’s growing need to transmit data from remote locations that are not connected to power sources. The family of LPWA technologies including LoRa, NB-IOT, and others are perfectly suited to support new use cases in agriculture, transportation, smart spaces, supply chain, manufacturing and many other areas.
The reality is that there is not one solution but rather a variety of low-power, wide area network technologies that take many shapes and forms. It follows that there are various criteria that need to be considered before a business should invest into a LPWA structure.
We take a critical look at the current market landscape, providing deep industry insights by experienced technologists who will share first-hand use cases and offer thought-provoking insights into how this technology is transforming connected industry.
We will be taking a look at:
- The current market landscape

Ed Maguire, Principal Partner, Momenta Partners & Rick Bullotta, Technologist and Founder of ThingWorx and LighthammerRecorded: Jul 23 201960 mins
Rick Bullotta founded two companies that have been pivotal in the development of Connected Industry: Lighthammer (acquired by SAP in 2005) and Thingworx (acquired by PTC in 2014) and he is now an adviser to Microsoft Azure IoT. Rick is a passionate advocate of new technologies and innovation, and enjoys the disclaimer that “80% is fact and 20% is BS - and I don’t know which is which”.
Our conversation explores his personal background in industrial technology, and how the insights gained from his experiences at Wonderware helped shape the vision for the companies he started. Exploring the genesis of Lighthammer and Thingworx, the discussion touches on why blue-collar tasks benefit from an IT-driven “multiplier effect”, how innovation comes from empowered customers, and how simple visibility can kick-start profound changes in industrial businesses. Other topics covered include the market landscape around IoT platforms, potential of AI and machine learning, the possibilities and pitfalls around blockchain and the future of Connected Industry.
Areas of particular interest in technology include meta-sensing technologies around drones and robotics, simplifying the last foot of connectivity, 5G technologies and a company called Waveio.ai that seeks create events and alerting without relying on audio.

This is the third of our series of webinars on issues facing fleet managers and the fuel sector in the UK. During this session, we will provide an update on current UK fuel prices and possible future cost and usage trends.
These regular webinars are becoming an established and popular online event in the fleet industry, because Allstar Business Solutions has insight that few other fleet businesses can match.
Fuel cost control and management is a vital element of running a fleet, and our fuel cards enable more than 50,000 UK businesses to keep 1.5 million drivers on the road, giving us granular-level data about vehicles, drivers, prices and other influencing factors. This information provides us with unparalleled knowledge about fleet management, which you could then be using in your own business.
The British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) will also be joining us to talk about the wider industry issues they are involved with, both on the ground and in the corridors of power: fuel policies and duty, the future of BIK taxation, the effects of Ultra Low Emission Zones on businesses and the transition to electric and mobility solutions.
Joining our Chief Operating Officer, Paul Holland, for this thought-provoking, informative webinar will be ex-Fleet News and Fleet World journalist Steve Moody, and Toby Poston, BVRLA Director of Communications and External Relations.

Learn development best practices for embedding analytics in your application
More and more employees (not just data analysts or C-level execs) are expected to make data-driven decisions, yet only 20–25% of workers have access to business intelligence (BI) products. But when asked, your end users don’t want to use a “BI tool”—another interface to learn, another login—they want easily accessible answers. Instead of offering a standalone dashboard, the new trend is to embed analytics into applications that are already used every day.
This workshop series features a brand-new demo application—created by TIBCO Jaspersoft and projekt202—that illustrates and teaches you how to create answer-generating applications of your own. Over the course of 4 webinars, we will introduce you to the what and the why of data as a feature applications and how you can build your own.
Data as a Feature webinar sessions:
1)Build answer-generating apps that users love: Learn best practices for making data valuable to your application users
2)Getting started: How to set up your data as a feature project
3)Your data in your app: Best practices for embedding interactive reports and visualizations in your app
4)Managing the experience + ad hoc reporting: Handling security, multi-tenancy, and self-service reporting for your data as a feature app

Edge computing has the potential to impact the data infrastructure of the IoT, but what are the benefits and risks of moving away from the cloud? Edge computing comes with a suite of considerations that need to be carefully considered prior to adoption that we'll explore in turn.
This webinar will cover:
- The current state of fog and intelligent edge computing
- What are the benefits/risks of moving away from the cloud?
- What does this mean for cloud computing, data infrastructure and data analytics?
- What are the best use cases of edge computing and what are its limitations?
- Forecasts on future applications
James Martin, Crime and Security Advisor, BRC & Giles Taylor, Head of Data & Cyber Security, Data Services, Lloyds BankRecorded: Jun 26 201956 mins
In a world of increasing digitalisation, where homes, businesses and wider infrastructure are more connected than ever, the impact associated with cyber-attacks is growing.
Cyber threat to business should be taken seriously, The BRC Crime Survey 2019 reported that between 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018 the combined cost of spending on crime prevention and losses from crime to the industry was £1.9 billion, and although retailers are spending 17% more on cybersecurity than last year, nearly 80% of the retailers surveyed have seen an increase in the number of attacks and/or breaches.
BRC and Lloyds are coming together to support BRC members to understand and manage their financial exposure to potential cyber-attacks.
This webinar will discuss the evolution of the cyber threat and will help prepare retailers on the steps they can take not only to prepare but how to both respond and recover financially and operationally from an attack.

Digital twins are virtual representations of physical systems. The current interest in them is fueled by the convergence of IoT, machine learning and big data technology. As process complexity increases, they are becoming key to efficient operations and high product yields.
There is now a demand for ‘wide-and-big data’ analytic solutions that detect associations between product quality metrics and thousands to millions of process variables. These cutting edge solutions can support root-cause and predictive analyses. Further, the results must be available close to "real-time" to enable useful process interventions — for example to identify subtle equipment changes, process shift or drift, or to predict and remedy substandard yield for a lot in the line.
This webinar focuses on the implementation of a semiconductor manufacturing digital twin for yield that detects associations between product quality metrics and up to millions of predictor process.
What you will see via demos and learn about:
-How hybrid big-data plus in-memory systems are being utilized to address the various new analytic and IT-architecture problems associated with this challenge
-How to combine large-scale distributed analytics capabilities with comprehensive server- and in-memory-based advanced analytics
-How to deliver actionable interactive results through intelligent visualizations.
Consumers today expect their purchases to be delivered when and where they want them. By providing up-to-date, available delivery options at the point of purchase, retailers are able to build brand differentiation and loyalty with targeted and personalised delivery choices.
In this webinar, we will highlight the importance of providing flexible and varied customer delivery options, and look at MetaPack’s new Delivery Options Benchmark report, which gives insight into the range of delivery options provided by 52 global retailers and brands in the UK, US, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.
