Presented at Agile Day Twin Cities on the intersection of business, technology, and people as applied to Internet of Things initiatives.
ABSTRACT: The internet of things is disrupting nearly every industry. And as the last decade showed us, it takes a lot more than connectivity to win with IoT. This presentation takes a critical look at a product-first approach vs. a value-first approach for developing winning IoT solutions, and its corresponding implications for rolling out a successful corporate-wide digital transformation initiative.
