Si2’s Nick Frank gave the keynote presentation at eWON’s FlexThink Developer Conference in Birmingham on 25th May 2016. eWON are the global leader in smart IoT enabled router technology for connecting too machines and industrial assets. Organised with their local agent MAC-Solutions, this conference brought  the latest thinking in the IoT to the UK developer community. Nick talked about his experiences as part of Growth Stages in developing the MAC ecosystem for remote services and then went on to review how leading companies are turning to Service Thinking,  in order to use the IoT and remote technologies to drive business growth.

What was clear from this conference is that while there still is a lot of hype and froth about the IoT, it is only through these hands on forums, where real experts talk to their colleagues about the practicalities of implementation, can progress be made in bringing great ideas to reality.
