Something I read earlier this year in a blog post by our Executive Director and CEO Dave Labuskes stuck with me. He talked about moving away from “commoditized technology” delivery and instead “enabling directional shift” for the customer. Indeed, today’s solution design is driven by user experience (UX) and not your technology portfolio. He goes on to ask, “How can you do that without training your staff to think like that?”
Your client wants you to manage their services remotely and securely…today. They want to harness the cloud, process big data and collaborate not just wirelessly but seamlessly. If you’re looking for a testament to the sharp developmental changes this industry has experienced and learn how to adequately respond to them, InfoComm 2015 is the place to do it.
We boosted the show education catalog by more than 40 original courses, sessions and workshops to address your latest technology needs. And at the show’s Opening Keynote you’ll even hear that the Internet of Things is now smack dab in the AV industry’s wheelhouse.
This year, the keynote takes the form of a thought-leadership panel moderated by The New York Times Lead Technology Writer/Reporter Nick Bilton (pictured, above).
Panelists will include (left to right):
- Fred Bargetzi, Chief Technology Officer, Crestron Electronics
- Ron Gazzola, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Electronics America
- Dr. I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer, Harman International
- Mike Walker, Director of Operations, Global Customer Experience Center, Cisco
On Tuesday, June 16, at 4:00 pm, hear the leaders speak about technologies and actionable ideas surrounding the Internet of Things and how you can harness your intellectual capital in this field. They will also share their views on the IoT growth potential, security and interoperability. Click here to learn more and register for the show.
And just so you get the most out of this free event, we want you take an active part in the panel. Share with us your burning questions about the impact of the Internet of Things on the AV industry and the role you can play in this shift. Post them in the Comments section below and maybe you’ll hear them answered at the Chapin Theater in the Orange County Convention Center by those who are in the know.
