Frost & Sullivan’s Senior Partner Dorman Followwill explains: "The question is: how can we enable companies to transform through exciting connectivity platforms? We will be presenting specific case studies from traditional global companies that are transforming themselves from the inside out. These companies are starting with their individual contributors, and from there driving transformation through their employee teams, business units and the entire enterprise."

Outside of our homes and work lies huge commercial opportunity. Connected city – with a market potential of nearly $400 billion – will be driven by connected consumer services for mobility, governance, education, and banking and financial services. eServices to Citizens, such as ePayments, eExchange, eSharing, etc, will empower citizens with real-time access to personal data and related services. Smart governance and education services will transform our access to information and learning.
