Enterprise customers are driving demand for IoT solutions that impact their current businesses, but designing and deploying multi-vendor IOT solutions is not an easy task, given different sales cycles, new buyer types and more complex ROI models.

During this workshop we will identify, prioritize and model your customer’s leading use cases, enabling you and your customer to identify applicable solutions, business outcomes and next steps.
