Brian Dalgetty on the Internet of Things–From Hype to Insight

by Jörgen Eriksson on July 8, 2015

bryan-ibmBrian Dalgetty is CMO for Internet of Things at IBM, and he gave a presentation yesterday at the European Innovation Academy titled “The Internet of Things – From Hype to Insight”. Mr Dalgetty is a veteran at IBM with 25 years of corporate experience and his main point was how insights from sensors and from everything becoming connected is disrupting and transforming industries.

The speech was especially interesting to compare with the views of another global corporate, Ericsson, about “The Networked Society Happening Right Now” which we published here on the Bearing Wave some weeks ago.
