By IoTEvolutionWorld News January 04, 2017

Worldwide technology leader and IoT pioneer brings innovative but practical point-of-view to Fort Lauderdale conference in February.

Trumbull, CT—January 4, 2017—TMC and Crossfire Media today announced Maciej Kranz, VP, Corporate Strategic Innovation Group at Cisco will present a keynote address at IoT Evolution Conference and Expo being held February 7-10, 2017 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. IoT Evolution Expo has evolved to become the leading educational and networking forum for the enterprise looking to understand how to develop and implement IoT solutions that drive measurable results and business transformation. The event will feature a robust exhibit floor, powerful keynotes, case studies, live demos, unique sessions, special events, networking opportunities and much more. Kranz will deliver his keynote on Thursday, February 9th at 10:00 AM.

“Today, organizations in every industry need to move past the hype and get started on their own IoT journeys,” said Kranz. “Tangible results from thousands of IoT projects are already boosting profits, competitiveness and productivity. This market transition has shifted from asking, ‘What is IoT?’ to asking, ‘How can we take practical steps to realize IoT’s vast opportunities?’ Now, it’s as much about boots on the ground as it is about connected devices.”

As Vice President of Cisco’s (NASDAQ: CSCO) Corporate Innovation Strategy Group and author of the New York Times Best Selling book, “Building the Internet of Things,” Kranz is an IoT pioneer who has worked with dozens of organizations across multiple industries on IoT implementations. In his keynote, he will present case studies that shape the first step-by-step framework on how organizations can identify and implement IoT projects. The speaker will reveal eight fundamental “ingredients for success” and four fast payback scenarios any organization can use to jumpstart their IoT journey.  

“Cisco, the networking giant, has historically leveraged the power of the Internet to help build the Enterprise of the Future. Maciej Kranz’ new book expands our understanding of the ways connected things and the data they unleash will deliver valuable new applications for the IoT-powered Enterprise,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, IoT Evolution. “I look forward to hearing the insights he shares with IoT Evolution Expo attendees.”
