How can I modernise my infrastructure on a platform that will simplify the future?
Three HQ
6 November 2019

The Internet of Things conversation has moved well beyond sensors.

As a business courtesy, one lucky attendee won a Samsung Galaxy S10+ Device.

Now, enterprise is beginning to understand that IoT must be embedded as another architecture to fully realise its potential.

TechFire, in association with Three Ireland, explored how IoT can extend reach, provide insights and drive efficiencies when carefully integrated with existing architectures.

With insights and examples from the Arranmore project and customer experiences, the event will demonstrated how tomorrow’s enterprise will not only be sensor-enabled, but as a result, better informed and more insightful.

Through greater information gathering capabilities with an efficient architecture to aggregate, organise and analyse, and the application of analytics tools, Irish organisations can take business decision making to new levels.

This TechFire event took place on 6 November at Three HQ, Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, Dublin 2, as usual it was free to attend but registration was required. Make sure to sign up for updates on future TechFire events.
