Nikolay Uskov to Reveal Internet of Things Business Value

22 September 2016
Nikolay Uskov, an Editor-in-Chief at Forbes Magazine, will moderate the IT Leader Forum 2016, which will cover one of the most thrilling IT topics of today - Internet of Things (IoT) - and will be held on October 18, 2016, at the International Multimedia Press Center of Russia Today International Information Agency (RIA Novosti).

Despite multiple talks on the reality of todays digital age, which seems to be so distant and vague for many people, business people still do not know what they should do to benefit from IoT technology. To find the answer, over 300 leaders, top managers from Russian and foreign companies, and IT market experts will attend the forum on October 18.

"Today, market players have begun to realize that their competitive edge depends on the prompt use of technology. The Internet of Things phenomenon seems to provide unlimited opportunities, delivering not just sensor-powered and remotely controlled smart sites, but also introducing a totally new approach to corporate management. I am confident that real-life case studies and the experience of leading experts from various industries will help us better understand how to start leveraging Internet of Things technology in order to boost income. Leading managers and business people attending the event will especially benefit from the focus on practical issues," said Nikolay Uskov.

During the discussion on how to use IoT technology to increase customer base, representatives of banks, telecom companies and retailers will share experiences of real-life IoT implementations and their vision on how to apply this technology in their economic segments, including opportunities for IoT monetization, winning new markets, and expanding business boundaries. In addition, they will also discuss how to prepare enterprise IT infrastructure for implementing technologies of the future.

As part of the 'IoT for Manufacturing: Complete Transformation or Smart Add-on?' session, attendees will discuss an IoT roadmap for Russia and the key personnel competences which are required in the new digital world.
A detailed agenda of the IT Leader Forum is available at the special Forum page.
