IDC Announces New 'Internet of Things Roadshow' for Turkey
07 Jan 2016
Istanbul, November 18, 2015 – International Data Corporation (IDC) is delighted to announce that its 'Internet of Things Roadshow' will be visiting Turkey in December 2015, with events set to take place on December 8 and 10 in Ankara and Istanbul, respectively. Providing a perfect platform for Turkey's ICT community to discuss the latest goings on across the Internet of Things (IoT) landscape, the event will assess the progress that is being made at the local, regional, and global levels.
"The era of the Internet of Things is here, and the potential for the associated technologies to radically transform individual businesses and society as a whole is huge," says Nevin Cizmeciogullari, country manager at IDC Turkey. "With IoT, organizations can enhance their operations to gain real-time insights, improve their efficiencies, develop new business models, and deliver innovative services to customers, partners, and employees alike. However, the IoT industry is facing a number of challenges that are hindering its growth, such as skill shortages, a lack of standardization, and concerns around security and privacy, so there is a pressing need for all IoT stakeholders to gather together to plot a mutually beneficial path for future success."
Drawing on its most recent survey findings, IDC believes we are now entering a crucial period for educating the wider IoT ecosystem on its inherent benefits. "IDC's 'Global IoT Survey' indicates that IoT deployments are still in their early stages, with only one-third of planned endpoints already connected," says Cizmeciogullari. "As such, the next 18 months represent a critical window for vendors to implement strategies and position themselves as IoT thought leaders. In order to secure a key role in the future IoT arena, vendors should focus on building attractive capabilities around consulting and professional services, while simultaneously developing a broad IoT ecosystem of partners."
During the 'Internet of Things Roadshow', keynote speakers from Turkey's most innovative companies will share the lessons they have learned from their own IoT deployments, dissecting the challenges they encountered along the way and outlining the innovative solutions they used to overcome them. Industry experts from some of the world's leading IoT players will also be on hand to document the technological advancements being made across a wide variety of different domains.
Delegates will be drawn from across Turkey's vertical spectrum, with the government, transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas, banking, energy, retail, mining, and automotive sectors all set to be heavily represented. The conference will provide insights into a range of existing and emerging vertical-specific applications and will present attendees with a clear outlook on the trends that are set to shape IoT adoption in Turkey over the coming years, with a particular focus on the role of Big Data and new approaches to data processing and analytics.
