The promise of an Internet of Things has become the reality the connected product. Today there are more things connected to the Internet than there are people on the planet. Awesome, right? In a word, no. We have billions of Internet-connected things, but very few of them connect to each other and even fewer connect to us. That’s a problem. We all want something more. We want an Internet of Everything where every thing is connected and every thing connects. Where things that were silent have a voice. Where APIs compete with dials and buttons for control. Where people compose amazing experiences from the world of things around them. Opportunity is knocking, the question is: Are we ready to open the door and let it in? If we do, we will create unprecedented social and economic opportunity for people, businesses, and communities. In this panel, three dynamic business leaders will discuss the impact of connecting everything on their business and business models, the real challenge of building connected products, and their thoughts on the reality of the open source solution.
