Capitalizing on the Sustainable Benefits of the IoT

Could the Internet of Things (IoT) hold the key to solving the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges? Do IoT learnings from business apply to community issues? Can IoT technology scale quickly and responsibly enough to advance critical solutions, such as those needed to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals?

These are the types of questions Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) explored in its recent HPE Living Progress Exchange (LPX).

At the Verge 2016 conference in Santa Clara, Calif., the brand hosted its first simultaneous online and local LPX. The combined forum tackled the same challenging question: How do we capitalize on the sustainable benefits of the IoT?

Moderated by GlobeScan, the LPX forum included a group of thought leaders from across the private sector — including technology, automotive, industrial, and more — as well as consultants and representatives from the public sector. The diverse perspectives promoted a robust dialogue, and netted some interesting ideas and obstacles. Insights from the LPX are captured in this new white paper from HPE and GlobeScan.
