It's "game on" for businesses and industries worldwide to begin their evolution to the Internet of Everything (IoE)—the intelligent connection of people, process, data, and things. Today more than 99 percent of physical objects in the world are unconnected. By 2020, 50 billion devices will be connected. As the number of connections between people, processes, data, and things continue to grow; businesses will define new markets and refine others. Those connections serve to benefit people by enabling improved quality of life, richer experiences, and faster and better business decisions. Hear how Cisco is using disruptive innovation to fuel the emergence of the IoE and to create value and opportunities for its customer and partners.

Conference ThemeBig Data is such a non-specific term that it may cause some confusion as to what it is and why it is important.
We are progressing further down the road as a data-driven society, so it is becoming imperative that everyone better understand the big picture of Big Data. How is it emerging as a technological solution set for business, community and how we evolve as a society.
This will be the overarching theme of this year's South Sound Technology Conference. We will explore what big data means and how it affects healthcare, business, and our national infrastructure. Most importantly, we'll discuss what it means to you.
