We’re delighted to welcome the technology cluster leader ARM to the conference. ARM have come to dominate smartphone chip design in recent years after founding under 25 years ago in Cambridge. They are attacking server and IOT segments and also have interests in investment at the conference.

Dr Amyas Philips  of ARM IOT, covers maintaining leadership in a rapidly developing market with equally rapid technology evolution is a growing multidisciplinary challenge for both small and multinational enterprises.

Session Synopsis
Technology providers are rapidly maturing their various IoT platforms, all offering to solve the engineering problems of transitioning your business to being data-driven, so that you can focus on what you do best: energy generation, storage and distribution.  It’s de rigueur to acknowledge that exploiting data is as big a challenge as getting it in the first place – and to leave it at that.  Instead of doing that, I will look at the challenge from a digitising business’ point of view and show that the problem can be collapsed into a few key technology and business model decision points, with the options available at each.

Dr Amyas Philips will work with a colleague from IBM to deliver a fascinating technology session on 19 June.

ARM will deliver the Keynote at the start of 20 June and ARM’s ventures colleagues will give a short investment landscape talk also on 20 June.

3 weeks to go to this event and it will be very interesting and timely indeed, one not to miss!
