Sam Dillard
InfluxData, Senior Product Manager

The explosion of IoT devices and the time series data they generate has accelerated the demand for specialized IoT platforms. By 2025, there’s projected to be ~60 billion connected devices around the world. The hurdles for businesses to overcome in the next few years will be centered around collecting, munging, and storing it all from the many sources it comes from, how to manage that storage, and how to analyze it most efficiently.
In this session Sam Dillard will cover why a time series data platform should be used to meet IoT scale and interoperability needs. He will walk through the core concepts of time series databases, share use cases and give us an overview of the InfluxDB platform.

Twilio, Head of IoT

With so many existing and emerging wireless technologies - 5G, eSIM /eUICC, and NB-IoT, one of the key decisions you need to make as an IoT product builder is - Which of these technologies are right for your current IoT initiatives? There are many (almost an overwhelming amount of) considerations - cost, coverage, bandwidth, impact on battery life, module availability, operational overhead and the list goes on. And you have many industry players steering you one way or another. This session will give you the guidance you need on how to prioritize these considerations and ultimately make a decision that will ensure a successful product lifecycle.

Key takeaways:
Understand the pros and cons of wireless technologies
Learn how to map each to your existing product needs
Take home a decision making framework for IoT project success
