IoT Slam 2020 Virtual Internet of Things Conference Aug. 19, 2020

FRG Principal Dessa Glasser has been invited to share her expertise in data strategy, governance and operations to show how data can be organized and leveraged to create value in a panel discussion for the IoT Slam 2020 Virtual Internet of Things Conference planned for August 19.

The panel, “Solving the Data (meaning) Dilemma for IoT,” is expected to discuss how to make collected data useful at scale. Per the session abstract, ” The ‘data dilemma’ for IoT is a solvable problem.  Applying the principles of Enterprise Knowledge Graph (EKG) can significantly enhance the value from your investment in IoT connectivity.  The pathway forward is linked to mature data content standards that were developed specifically for this purpose.  In this session we will explore the principles of sustainability for IoT to ensure that data is always accessible (via unique, permanent and resolvable identifiers), meaningful (via machine-readable, self-describing ontologies), secure (via datapoint authorization and entitlement control), and has a well-defined provenance (via origin condition and source designation).”

Glasser joins Jacobus Geluk, Chief Technology Officer, and Michael Atkin, Director, Enterprise Knowledge Graph Foundation, Inc. on the panel, which will be moderated by Adam Drobot, Chairman of the Board, OpenTechWorks, Inc.

Information and registration details are available on the conference website.
