'The business drivers are such that they justify doing the work'

At last year's New York Geoweb Summit Francis Cianfrocca (Bayshore) and Rich Sutton (Skyhook) discussed how to make sense of sensor data. Connectivity and security were the main issues for IoT in 2015, but Cianfrocca anticipated interoperability would come to the fore. 'Let's have this conversation a year from now.'

Location data a 'monster that can morph and change'

'We see a lot of stuff in the data that can be operationalized and monetized in ways that are kind of unpredictable and fascinating,' Rich Sutton of Skyhook said in the introduction to his keynote at Geoweb Summit #11.

Challenge in industrial internet is 'to get the data into the applications'

Bayshore founder Francis Cianfrocca at Geoweb Summit #11 explained the opportunities in making sense of sensor data. 'If you can do an analytic step on that data, you can produce process efficiencies that translate into tens of billions of dollars, easily.'

'What will happen if Uber actually acquired Nokia HERE?'

'...and stops giving access to anybody else,' CartoDB's Javier de la Torre wondered in yesterday's webcast conversation with Leonardo Bonanni (Sourcemap) and Jory Schwach (Mesh), provided by Worldcast Live.
