Unlocking the potential of IoT: Research Report Findings

Date:             Wednesday 20 October 2021

Time:             14:00


Earlier this year, North, along with partners CENSIS and R3-IoT commissioned research into the rollout and adoption of IoT by the public sector in Scotland.

Register now to uncover the research report findings directly from the authors, award-winning telecoms and smart-city consultants, Intelligens Consulting.

With a focus on IoT in the public sector – in particular, how local authorities can use IoT to strengthen council services while reducing costs and increasing productivity – this webinar will explore the incorporation of IoT as part of a wider smart place/smart city strategy.

On the day, you will hear report recommendations that will help you overcome deployment barriers, make a commercial business case, understand the ROI achievable through investment in IoT, reduce exposure to risk, manage change, identify procurement strategies, and find partners to deliver your IoT solution.

This event will be of particular interest to:

  • Chief Executives of local authorities interested smart city or smart place strategies
  • Heads of Service who want to understand how IoT can deliver stronger local public services
  • IT service leads interested in taking the first step into IoT or want to know how to scale up.
  • Economic development staff interested in attracting and stimulate private sector investment and understand the social, economic and environmental benefits of IoT
