SlideshowIoT: Living in the Material World
Scott Ferguson

As the Internet of Things moves into the mainstream, connected devices are changing the way people interact with the world and with technology. However, what will that world look like when more IoT devices come online? A Las Vegas showroom floor holds some answers.

At Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Discover user conference this week, the company showed off how it's using IoT to create new products in several different fields, including manufacturing, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIot), video, smart cities and healthcare.

IoT, along with hybrid cloud and edge computing, is one of several areas that HPE is expanding to, and all three are connected. As devices collect more and more data, this information is being stored in the cloud. However, many companies want to analyze and then use the data faster, so much of that is happening on the edge and not in the full data center.

Gartner predicts that spending on endpoints and services will total $2 trillion.

How much IoT will change the world is still unknown, but the demos that HPE laid out offered a glimpse of how connected and smart devices are encroaching and where the industry's thinking is headed.

Check out some of our images from the showroom floor, as well as our coverage of the Discover show, and then let us know what you think in the comments section.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
