Digital Innovation Day 2017

Clay was invited as technology leader to the digitalinnovationday.com sponsored by Telefónica. I joined this event on the 27th of September and was blown away by this well-organized event that offered new insights, valuable contacts, practical information and a lot more about the world of IoT!

Over 650 innovative thinkers joined the Digital Innovation Day at the Eisbach Studios in Munich and were provided with exiting new technological challenges like big data, challenges in sales and digitalization in retail.

The vision of the event: Let Internet of Things help people to connect with everything that really matter to them

We can all agree IoT is the future. It’s leading vertical industries to innovate and transform. Over 90% of companies now a days store IoT data and applications in the cloud.

An analysis of Telefónica shows that 60% of all organizations are using and implementing IoT services to their industry. 24% of IT budgets are allocated to IoT, and 63% of IoT adopters are seeing a significant return on investment.

The main event topics were::

Challenges in sales:
Companies need new sales models based on continuous change and evolvement of user needs and requirements in the digital world.

Digitalization in retail business (offline and online):
Whether it’s a supermarket, a shopping mall or a boutique; retail is digitalizing. Clay is already solving the challenge of handling keys, arranging deliveries, and letting suppliers or business partners in across all different locations. Businesses need to think how to create a personalized experience through online commerce and increase the level of knowledge of the customer.

Telefónica gave us insights on working with big data that left us thinking: Looking at the 48 million mobile connections and 5,3 billion events per day, cyber security is a huge topic, and not only for Telefónica!:

To sum up:
