IoT technology decisions can be challenging – the ecosystem is vast and encompasses a wide array of technologies and vendors. 

As enterprises ramp up their deployments, some clear preferences are coming into focus.

  • Where is IT primarily deploying IoT compute, storage and analytics, from the edge out to the cloud? 
  • What infrastructure approach is predominate: SaaS, PaaS or IaaS? 
  • What advanced technologies matter most for IoT: AI? Digital twin? VR/AR? Etc… 
  • Who makes IoT technology decisions, IT or OT? And how can they best work together? 
  • What are the key technologies – and most in-use vendors –in critical IoT technology areas, including:
  • Storage, compute, security, connectivity, applications and more 

Explore the answers to these and other critical enterprise IoT questions by learning the real-world choices IT decision-makers are making and apply those solutions to your organization today.




Benchmarking Enterprise Application Security

Benchmarking Enterprise Application Security

Wednesday, March 18, 2020
11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Software – really code – is still eating the world, but prominent breaches against web applications show us that not all that code is being created with a consideration towards security. You’ve heard the term DevSecOps bandied about, but what does that mean in a practical sense, what’s really shifting around application security?  

Join Daniel Kennedy, Research Director for Information Security at 451 Research, for a discussion drawing on three years of peer market intelligence around application security tool usage within enterprises, contextualized by personal experience. 

What challenges emerge as security and development work together in a new paradigm, and how can the needs of each be met?
