Agenda

  • 6.00pm - 7.00pm CMA AGM (agenda on Booking Site) New Committee Members needed!
    This will follow the normal BCS Specialist Group format for Governance reasons. You can arrive at 7.00pm for the presentations if you wish.
  • 7.00pm - 7.15pm Break for Networking and Coffee top-up.
  • 7.15pm -7.45pm Low Power Wireless connection to Your Business “Things”
    Duncan Purves, Director 2Insight Ltd,
    Duncan also Chairs the Thames Valley IoT Meetup group and will run through some of the 15 or more Wireless technologies becoming available for IoT use with Case study examples.
    Whilst many businesses have had Machine to Machine (M2M) technologies in particular areas of their businesses for many years, the number of new low power Wireless technologies is extending the reach of connectivity well beyond these early “Silo” applications. The number of available technologies for connecting with sensors, actuators and other “Things” in a business is daunting and Duncan will indicate where each might be appropriate for particular applications.
  • 7.45pm - 8.15pm 2+2=5 ... How to get more from your "Things..."
    Paul Green, Creative Director - Iotics Labs

Paul’s presentation will again give examples of how real world business change is being enabled by IoT Technology. How new Business propositions and services are being delivered. Their technology is the glue behind many of the fascinating examples shown in the press. Pauls Presentation will show how to start connecting the “things” and maybe the people in and around your Business and get more from them.
