About the talk
Organizations planning to implement IoT and advanced analytics often fail to capture the envisioned value of these initiatives. This is rooted in 1) not rigorously identifying and quantifying up-front all of the potential value levers, and 2) failing to carefully operationally validate the ability to capture each pocket of value. This talk will share a detailed case study of how a multi-billion dollar industrial and residential services company drove hyper-growth and profitability through an IoT/data strategy, applying a methodical approach in transforming a traditional asset intensive company with a blue-collar workforce into a modern, digital data-driven company. We will share how to address the challenge of not just delivering the right insights to the right people at the right time, but also making the critical cultural, behavioral and mind shift changes that enabled extended leadership and operational teams to harness the power of data.

Do you know clearly set and so some of the expectations are never really know clarified so that becomes kind of out of the gate that the big issue. Also. We feel like a lot of digital initiatives
have a narrow perspective maybe Folks up to go sideload function or something. So it really never gets on track what happened back that shitt? Additionally, we feel like a lot of digital initiatives are done inconsistent with actually how companies operate so when you try to drive using adoption that becomes a challenge, I think that's generally the case for a lot of IT projects. And also we still see to a large extent really a fixed fix planning fixed mindset type of approach. Where are you really lacked the ability for the interest to discover,
