As the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and deployments continue to grow at a rapid rate, The IoT Community (Internet of Things Community) announced that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has joined its elite IoT ecosystem.
The IoT Community is the world’s largest community of its kind, consisting of business, CxO, and IoT professionals with a number that exceeds 23,000 members. Their objective is to focus on the adoption and the application of the IoT in commercial environments and overcoming a variety of challenges that stand in the way.
HPE, a global technology leader that is focused on the development of intelligent solutions that allow their customers to capture, analyze and act upon data in a seamless manner from the edge to the cloud, has joined the IoT Community ecosystem of the best IoT thought leaders.
With HPE on board, they will work in collaboration with the rest of the community to approach the barriers that hinder the IoT, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Intelligent Edge environments.
“We are delighted to welcome HPE to our IoT Community. HPE is on the cutting edge of innovation across IoT, IIoT, Edge, Cloud, and will be instrumental in community discussions. We look forward to their insights and expertise,” said David Hill, Executive Director of the IoT Community.
Also, of note is that Dr. Tom Bradicich, vice president, Hewlett Packard Fellow and global head of IoT and Edge, at Hewlett Packard Enterprise joins the IoT Community Board of Advisors, while also being named the Chairman of a newly formed Converged Edge Center of Excellence (CECoE), with goals of addressing the quickly developing needs of emerging technologies that depend on the IoT and Edge. This group will be focusing on the 3 Cs of an IoT solutions architecture – Connect, Compute, Control – and how they merge in processes, data, as well as physical integration. More information about this is to be unveiled by Dr. Bradicich at the IoT Slam X – Virtual Internet of Things event on December 11, 2019.
“Intelligent Edge and IoT solutions play key roles in advancing the way people live and work. Our new Converged Edge CoE affords the IoT Community a focus on the convergence and interaction between IT compute and storage systems, and Operational Technologies (OT) such as control systems, data acquisition, and industrial protocols,” said Dr. Bradicich. “I’m enthused to join the prestigious colleagues on the Advisory Board, who’ve demonstrated great purpose and a history of achievements in driving an IoT industry community. HPE will bring to bear our first-mover experiences with IoT and edge technology, customer deployments, and partner engagements, all for the benefit of the IoT Community.”
At this event, Dr. Tom Bradicich will join an elite lineup of thought leaders and executives to present the opening headline keynote, “My Personal IoT Journey – Pioneering Principles to Products to Profits,” in which he will be reviewing his pioneering “7 Principles of the IoT” and talk about how he used them to determine Hewlett Packard’s first corporate IoT strategy, to secure investment capital, and to launch over a dozen SW and HW product categories and the Intelligent Edge.
Dr. Bradicich will share his insights into real world customer deployments, use cases, and business cases, closing the keynote with his vision on the future for the IoT.
Bill Mortimer, IoT Community Advisory Board Chairman, said, “We are thrilled to welcome HPE to our IoT Community; we are honored to add an elite powerhouse in Dr. Tom Bradicich to our Board of Advisors. We are excited to build a best practice converged framework for Edge – in all of its forms under Dr. Tom's leadership as Chair of the newly formed Converged Edge CoE.”
