Monetizing the Internet of Things

Posted on August 27th, 2013 by

I recently discovered, and love my new Jawbone UP. From tracking my sleep patterns (erratic) to the activity levels (low), its giving me a fresh insight into my ever-expanding mid-section.

And its not just the tablets, smartphones and PCs which are growing as well, but this entire new category of contextual systems (local, social, sensors, wearables) that are going to revolutionize big data collection, analytics and improve our understanding of some core issues that affect health, fitness and other human issues.

Just in case you missed it, we are organizing our first Software Selling Conference in China that will take place on December 5th at the Park Plaza Beijing Science Park.
