By 2020, it's estimated that 50 billion consumer and industrial devices will be connected to the Internet.  The explosive growth of the Internet of Things provides huge opportunities, but it also introduces a lot of complexity and risk.

To be successful, IoT products require a new breed of Product Manager capable of managing an end-to-end solution from a business and technical perspective.  In this talk, Daniel will discuss why IoT products are a big opportunity for PMs, and also point out the complexities involved in building IoT products.

Daniel will introduce the building blocks of the IoT technology stack from a PM perspective, including smart devices, cloud platforms, and cloud applications.  He'll describe how these components fit together and introduce the IoT Decision Framework, a strategic framework to guide Product Managers in decision-making around IoT technology, business, UX, security, and more.
