Internet of Things (IoT) can be a unique challenge for companies looking to incorporate new "smart technology" into existing product lines. Many clients begin by viewing the seemingly simple addition of connectivity as a small product attribute, but find themselves in a revolutionary change in their relationship with their client and the value they can offer. The team at Exosite has spent years working through many aspects of IoT - not only to enhance the customer experience, but also the developers.
In this month's meeting, leaders from Exosite's UX, Product Management, and Digital Transformation groups will discuss the unique challenges of IoT engagements. Over their years focused in this burgeoning field, they've become experienced in not only what pitfalls to watch for, but how to change the customer engagements to architect a design process that yields success. They'll also discuss trends in the IoT marketplace and case studies.
