Back in 2010 some organisations were predicting 50 billion connected devices by 2020. We’re nowhere close to that. But does that mean IoT is doing badly? And how can you put a figure on the market opportunity for you? In this session, Matt Hatton, one of the world’s most experienced forecasters of the IoT opportunity, will discuss the quantitative aspects of the IoT. Should we be doing better, where and how? And how do we predict what the market opportunity might be? Are analyst numbers believable and are they any better than you could calculate on the back of an envelope in 5 minutes?
