Research Director To Deliver Keynote at Event on Internet of
Will address the rise of machines in Machine-to-Machine
Needham, MA- 09-10-2013-The Object Management Group
(OMG®) is pleased to introduce Les Santiago, Research
Director of Semiconductors Research at the International
Data Corporation (IDC) as the keynote speaker at "The
Internet of Things - Navigating the Future of Information
Technology" event. The event will take place on
Wednesday, September 25th at the Hyatt Regency in New
Mr. Santiago's address will take place immediately after
a brief welcome introduction by OMG's Chairman and CEO, Dr.
Richard Soley at 9:00am EST. It will focus on
machine-to-machine (M2M) communication amongst intelligent
systems and traditional embedded systems alike.
"We believe that, in the near term, M2M will be used
to deliver process efficiencies, automation, and information
analysis," said Mr. Santiago. "Eventually, M2M
systems will transform businesses by delivering new
real-time business models, new revenue streams, and new
levels of customer service. In addition, we note that while
the standardization of connectivity technologies of systems
is a challenge given the number of connectivity technologies
and their respective backers, the standards debate around
platforms (especially service delivery platforms) will be
one of the key enablers or restrainers- depending on how it
plays out- of M2M growth."
The all-day Internet of Things event will focus on the
increasing number of networked devices that have appeared on
the market in recent years and will contribute to forming
the foundation of the Internet of Things. In particular, the
use of the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard will
be discussed. Case studies detailing DDS's uses in Smart
Cities, Smart Energy, and Transportation will provide a
basis as to the specification's capabilities in regards to
Internet of Things applications.
Registration fees for the event begin at $199 USD.
Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend.
