IoT Solutions World Congress 2017

IoT Focus Team represents the IoT capacity of Deloitte Germany - Dr. Konstantin Dörr & Tobias Pascal Hess

With more than 13.000 visitors this year, the third edition of the Internet of Things Solutions World Congress (IoTSWC) in Barcelona is the world’s leading Industry IoT congress today. The IoT Germany Focus Team was able to raise the awareness of Deloitte Germany’s IoT capacity as well as to strengthen its international IoT ecosystem. 

At IoTSWC 2017, over 250 of the most innovative and influential IoT thinkers presented their insights on how IoT is affecting industries, such as Automotive, Energy & Resources, Public Transportation, Travel, Hospitality & Services or Life Sciences & Health Care.

Deloitte was once again a Diamond Sponsor of IoTSWC 2017 and showed a significant presence at the event. Deloitte Research Director, Mark Cotteleer led several keynote roundtables, e.g. “Industry 4.0 and the Future of Work,”, and “How Policy & Regulation Can Support the Advancement of IoT,” with our US Lead for Public Sector IoT, Rana Sen, on the panel. Other speakers at IoTSWC included such well-known personalities as the head of integration of NASA’s Orion Mission Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle or the founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, Jon Matonis.

In total, the IoT Capabilites of more than ten Deloitte member firms presented their insights within several interactive IoT Live Demos at an innovative rooftop exhibition booth and along many of our IoT Dax-30 partners on B2B- und B2C-IoT solutions.

Especially with the presentation of a Predictive Maintenance Demo, the German IoT Focus Team was able to underline the rapid development and economic importance of IoT within Manufacturing. In detail, the demo highlighted the interplay between data collection, data analysis as well as transfer and integration of ServiceNow as management tool.

Therefore, the top-level event offered the excellent opportunity to engage, network and highlight Deloitte Germany´s IoT expertise as a part of the World’s leading IoT experts.

Consequently, it is not surprising that we will be back in 2018. The congress will take place on October 16-18 in Barcelona with Google and Amazon as first confirmed sponsors.
