SANTA CLARA, Calif. - April 22, 2016 - PRLog -- The Internet of Things Developers Conference ( (IoT DevCon), the only technical conference and exhibition focused on practical implementations of IoT technologies, today announced the Keynotes and online availability of its agenda, including over 50 technical sessions and panels that will target IoT-related topics spanning security, services, data analytics, connectivity, interoperability, makers of things, and edge-node design. The conference and exhibition takes place May 25-26, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency  in Santa Clara, California.

Visionary keynotes and just two of the strategic executive talks at the IoT DevCon include the following:

"Whose Hat is This? Right-Fitting Your Business Strategy for the IoT (" presented by Vin D'Agostino, Vice President of the General Purpose Products Unit, Renesas Electronics America. He will address what designers must consider for applications and environments in which their products will be used in order to benefit end-customers and the business - and he'll reveal the top questions businesses should be asking upfront on their IoT journey.

"IoT Driving the Need for More Secure Big Data Analytics (" presented by Reiner Kappenberger, Global Product Management, HPE (Data) Security. Reiner will do a technical deep dive into how data can be anonymized and protected at scale today, how crypto technologies have to change, and how these original use cases will be transformed.

"Making The IoT a Reality - Keep it Open! (" presented by Volker Politz, Vice President Segment Marketing, Imagination Technologies.  He will examine where openness is needed across every aspect of the system, including OSes, protocols, and other dependencies and put particular focus on why the need is so great for a truly open, multi-domain, heterogeneous security as the backbone of any open IoT system.

"Survival Kit for Your IoT Journey (" presented by John Schaefer, SVP Product Development, ThingWorx, a PTC Business.  John's discussion will cover the benefits of an IoT Platform and an extended ecosystem, and how that may impact both the ability to innovate and time to value. Major takeaways will be what to consider when designing an IoT solution; how to leverage your intellectual property; how can IoT help you transform and more.

"The IoT DevCon opens with these tremendously practical and informative keynotes and sessions aimed at some of the most significant aspects of IoT development. The expert speakers will deliver sound business as well as technical advice for all attendees, ranging from engineers and developers to executives and senior management," said Markus Levy, the IoT DevCon 2016 Conference Chair. "Furthermore, these are just the tip of the iceberg for the strategic and technical sessions, panel discussions, exhibits and demonstrations that will be taking place at IoT DevCon."
