Mobile explosion has given rise to dramatic changes in the consumption of technology, data and applications evidenced in the hyper-connected consumer and workforce, and ease of connectivity proliferated possibilities and realities of Internet of Things (IoT). Forecasted to reach US$59 billion by 2020, Asia Pacific’s (APAC) total IoT spending points to the opportunities in the areas of digitized landscape monetization, the capability of wearable technology, big data and analytics and even the IT infrastructures in place for greater agility, flexibility and scalability required for business and national growth.

“The trend of IoT continues to impact ways of life on both consumer and business fronts, bringing about opportunities and challenges for businesses in the areas of mobility management, big data analytics, media consumption and more. Aligned with the global phenomenon, 2015’s CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT and BroadcastAsia will provide international audiences access to insights, latest technologies and solutions ranging from connected devices, smart living, reality of TV-everywhere, satellite applications, enterprise mobility and more,” said Mr. Victor Wong, Project Director, from the event’s organizer Singapore Exhibition Services.
