Emerging IoT Trends Topic of Third Thursday Connections

March 4, 2020, Fort Wayne, Ind. — Emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technology has the potential to transform our world. Technology alone does not solve problems. It requires collective efforts, collaborative culture, willingness to embrace change, and intent. This will be the focus of conversation at the Third Thursday Connections event on March 19, 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The NIIC in Fort Wayne, Ind. Anyone interested in attending is welcome.

Jason Pennington, Executive Director, Indiana IoT Lab, is the featured speaker. “We must move beyond the buzzwords, acronyms, and hype to connect ideas and people to embrace change with intention,” said Pennington. Key topics for the event include customer-centric outcomes and IoT applications; and rewards and challenges of an IoT startup.
