IoT, Analytics, Big Data and Cognitive/AI Computing Conference

The ABCs of the Digital Twin

December 14, Wyndham Grand Levent, Istanbul

Big Data, Analytics and IoT (BDA & IoT) are the pillars of IDC's 3rd Platform, a set of business-transforming technologies and applications that also includes cloud services, mobility, and social business. IDC’s holistic, global view of Big Data and analytics includes engagement with hundreds of end users, vendors, consultants and academics through surveys, conferences, and interviews.

IDC Türkiye’s Big Data and IoT conference will provide insight into the latest trends, and technologies, and provide guidance to business and technology executives on which key factors to consider in their strategic planning when allocating resources for IoT & Big Data initiatives and business plans.

About the Conference

While many traditional industry players are looking at BDA and cognitive systems to drive operational efficiencies that will help them reduce their overall cost structure and provide quick ROI, the more progressive companies are starting to utilize these solutions to aggressively enter adjacent industries and market segments. These digital “disruptors” are finding ways to leverage the 3rd Platform technologies – mobile, cloud, analytics and social – as a platform to quickly develop and deploy cognitive systems and BDA solutions that are dramatically changing the way traditional businesses models function.

This event will help delegates to address the following questions:

  • How can organization successfully deploy BDA and cognitive systems which can actually bring benefits to top and bottom line?
  • What are the opportunities that cognitive systems and BDA present?
  • What use/business cases are driving the market today? And which will drive the market in the future?
  • What are the technological and organizational challenges companies will face?
  • What are the solutions vendors provide the technologies and skilled resources to address the major challenges?
  • Which vendors, enterprises and governments are leading the way and what are they doing to drive this success?
  • What steps your organization should take to embark on this journey.

The Rise of The Digital Twin

According to IDC, revenue growth from information-based products will be double that of the rest of the product / service portfolio for one-third of A1000 companies by the end of 2019. The implications are that Asia Pacific organizations need to start leveraging the next-gen technology that is available today in order to: remain competitive; digitally transform; and mitigate risks from disruptive new-comers.

IDC predictions also indicate that by 2019, successful IoT efforts will merge streaming analytics with machine learning trained data lakes, marts, and content stores, accelerated by discrete or integrated processors. Not only can organizations become more efficient in their processes; they will also be able to elevate to the next level, delivering new innovations, products and services. IDC's Cognitive Computing conference will separate the hype from reality; particularly in the area of Cognitive / AI. Discover the next-gen technologies that are already here today, and how they are providing the catalyst for organizations to leap frog ahead of the competition. Technology investment cannot be blind - understanding and extracting the business value is essential for this journey.

Join us at the event to understand and visualize the concept of the digital twin - how it applies to all industry verticals, and how underlying new technologies such as Analytics, APIs, Big Data, Cognitive/AI and IoT converge as the nucleus of an organization becoming fully digitally aware.
