15:00-15:30 Internet Of Things Philosophy
Bas Boorsma , CISCO
 Our communities, cities, countries and companies are undergoing a process of digitization. This means that the core processes, services, products and how they they get produced and distributed are being challenged and get redefined at the most rudimentary level. At the heart of this revolution lies the Internet of Everything, the ultimate disrupter. What are the technology changes that are currently making their impact felt, and what new technological trends should we look out for? How is the Internet of Everything evolving across sectors and verticals? How does it impact our cities? What are the key challenges? How can we all prepare and best leverage the internet of everything and the underlying organizational principle, the Network Paradigm?
