In recent years, companies have accelerated their digital transformation efforts under the pressure of the covid pandemic, the demand for more sustainable solutions and increased competition. IoT has been one of the key technology enablers transforming many industries and creating value for both businesses and their customers.

But how do you go about connecting your products? How do you add value to the end customer? What should you keep in mind when designing new connected products? And most importantly: how do you get started? Although it might seem like a long and costly initiative, taking the first steps can be faster and easier than you expect.

On October 25, Telenor IoT and AWS will host the Stockholm IoT Gathering, a chance for IoT enthusiasts of all levels to take advantage of the industry leaders’ vast experience in the IoT arena.
