Recap: #connectivitysolutions Twitter chat, The Internet of Things and the enterprise

Updated 4:59 pm E.S.T. Today we hosted a Twitter chat on the topic of the Internet of Things and the enterprise. It was a fast-paced, forward-thinking and engaging chat, much like the topic being discussed! A special thanks goes out to our guest experts and Rogers for sponsoring the chat. Unfortunately an hour was too short to capture all the ideas bubbling around the business opportunities with IoT. Check below for a recap of the chat and tune into our webinar on Thursday, August 27, 1-2pm E.S.T on the results from the 2015 CanadianCIO Census! 

The Internet of Things is here and seamless connectivity has reached new levels for enterprises, connecting hundreds of possible devices. But have CIOs braced themselves for the impact of such a transformation to IT and the business? Having a solid IoT strategy, foolproof security measures and a means to organize the volumes of incoming data are just a few of the considerations to make, and its no easy task. Join us to discuss IoT and the business opportunities that come with it. This chat will be hosted by our @ITBusinessca account.

The chat will be held August 20, 12-1 PM EST, at the hashtag #connectivitysolutions. If this is your first time taking part in a Twitter chat, check out this video on how to join a twitter chat.
