MENLO PARK, Calif., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GTIA LLC announces major speakers and sponsors for the third annual SMART TECHnology World conference taking place in Menlo Park, California on May 30-31, 2013.
SMART TECH is the first and only executive-level conference focused on intelligent systems. The event provides a unique venue for decision makers from various industries to network and collaborate on a shared vision that will help define a market on the cusp of major change. Intelligent systems has the potential to be larger than today's mobile market and it will be the next battleground for technology suppliers, hardware and software vendors, and service providers all vying for the opportunity to become the incumbent leaders over the next five years. Join us and share in our vision, as our speakers provide their perspective on the key themes enabling intelligent systems including:
- Big Data and Analytics
- M2M (Machine to Machine Communications)
- IoT (Internet of Things)
- Smart Society
- Intelligent Firmware and Software Development Platforms for Richer User Experiences
- Transparent computing and Digital 6th Sense (Context Aware)
The dramatic rise of smartphones, tablets, and other emerging mobile form factors is here today and changing at a break-neck pace. Despite the rapid shift in mobile markets, it is just the beginning of what is to come for transparent computing. Increasingly, people will be surrounded by a multitude of devices, machine to machine, connected vehicles, and cloud-enabled networks that are seamless, personalized, and secure. The migration to this next era of computing is what we have classified as intelligent systems.
Intelligent systems are autonomous, connected, and securely managed systems that enable richer user experiences. *IDC research indicates that intelligent system shipments will grow at a CAGR of 20.3% over the next five years. In fact, intelligent systems will more than double by 2016 from more than 2.3 billion units and $1.3 trillion in revenue in 2012.
"The growth of the industry is very clear; the key challenge will not be what form factor to support or what app to enable but how will the computing industry come together to truly define the market's transformation around a transparent computing experience across intelligent systems," said Mario Morales, Program Vice President, Enabling Technologies and Semiconductors at IDC. "In the end, consumers demand the same level of simplicity and convenience on any device and for any service."
