Categories: Lectures & Seminars

The Britt Technology Impact Series begins its look at embedded technology and constant consumer connectivity — what we’re calling the Internet of You — with a snapshot of a 21st century company. Smart technology is transforming enterprises by bringing connectivity to once-isolated systems and devices. In this new enterprise, machines talk to each other and react to information as conditions merit. The arrival of smart tech to what had been internet-free precincts is not just changing how enterprises operate but also the goods they produce and the services they provide. Companies are weaving internet-connected devices into everything from shoes to egg cartons to diapers. The result is a far more complex web of connections among companies, devices, products and consumers. Christopher Mines, SVP of Business Technology Futures at Forrester Research Inc., will serve as cartographer for this tantalizing new landscape.
