Developing and implementing IoT solutions can seem like a daunting task and often expose new challenges when deploying a point-based solution approach. During this fireside chat centered around a recent success story, learn how implementing a platform-based strategy can not only extend rigid vertical applications, but serve as a flexible and open foundation for solving common challenges around interoperability, scalability, and standardization to achieve a system of systems methodology. Executives from Microsoft, SAS and Town of Cary will demonstrate how a local municipality was able to accelerate innovation and time to value, while implementing an underlying infrastructure that will scale with future requirements.
