How can resellers make waves in the IoT sector?

Watch our exclusive webinar - now available on demand

The internet of things (IoT) has become one of the technology industry's hottest topics in the last couple of years, with innovations in fields such as wearables and smart appliances generating a great deal of attention and interest.

But many resellers seemingly remain uncertain as to what role they can play in an IoT world, and how the channel and its customers can realise the benefits of this new technological dawn. In a webinar (pictured) held this week, CRN UK and our sister publication Channelnomics Europe teamed up with Cisco and Avnet to take a practical look at what IT's newest buzzword really means for the channel, how VARs can begin building an IoT practice, and where the key opportunities lie.

Our specially assembled panel of experts begin by squaring up to some of the myths and misconceptions that have surrounded the market, answering questions about security, usefulness in the enterprise and, ultimately, whether the technology is nothing more than hot air and hype. The discussion then moves onto an examination of how resellers should approach the sector, and what their first steps ought to be in doing so, before moving to a more in-depth look at core verticals and demonstrable use cases for IoT technology, and how best to position it.

Throughout the event, which was screened live yesterday, we also address viewer questions as they come in, as well as polling our audience, with the results offering an insight into how resellers view the IoT sector and how well developed their business is in the space.

The content and programme was designed to offer real, practical insights and advice for the channel, and we believe the discussion will give resellers a great introduction into opportunities in the IoT sector, and how best to take advantage of them.
