IoT is part of what some are calling the fourth industrial revolution; changing the way we live and work.
For organizations, IoT provides opportunities to increase ROI by decreasing costs and increasing returns in existing operations; while delivering value and new services to citizens.
During this Meetup we will explore some of the ways IoT is being used across industries today, with a focus on public sector. You will hear about newly available technologies and technology patterns that are enabling the next generation of organizational transformations.
Additionally, we will also feature IoT demos and preview the new Azure Government documentation program.
