Businesses must prepare for the convergence of two of the most transformative trends in technology – open source and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The IoT, put simply, involves using devices to collect, transmit, and analyse data. It has tremendous potential to transform industries from healthcare to automotive. However it will be open source technologies that provides the basis for the proliferation of the IoT. Open source will provide greater transparency and innovation to emerging IoT products and services. At the same time open source will help enterprises produce these products at lower costs, while helping to ensure high quality code.
As a result of this convergence of open source and the IoT, tomorrow we will hold a webinar to discuss what this means for technology leaders. During the webinar we will discuss:
- Why the IoT will rely on open source software
- Different open source approaches to the IoT
- Case studies of open source IoT
- How you can contribute to the open source community
So join our webinar tomorrow, Tuesday 11 August, at 4pm EST! We look forward to seeing you there!
