IoT in the Public Sector

New Zealand

Wednesday, 9 June 2021 | 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM NZST | Online

Creating Smarter Infrastructure and Enhancing Public Sector Services, Liveability and Safety Through IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) now has the potential to profoundly transform the public sector by altering how government entities gather data and information. Tech analyst company IDC predicts that by 2025 there will be a total 41.6 billion connected IoT devices influencing the way we build, manage and exist in our cities and spaces.  

By bringing together the major technical and business trends of mobility, automation and data analytics, IoT solutions promise to make the way public sector organisations deliver services smarter and more successful. However, the real value is in how we can best use these insights and data and apply them to improve service delivery in the New Zealand Public Sector – keeping our citizens and users at the forefront.  

PSN’s IoT in the Public Sector Virtual Event will get you thinking about the application of IoT in your organisation, right through to delivering the projects and seeing the immediate benefits.
