I recently read how Gartner predicts 20.8 billion connected things will be in use worldwide by 2020, up from 6.4 billion in 2016. While Much of the media is focusing on the security concerns of every member of society having hundreds of devices permanently connected online. Others are seeing great opportunity Twisthink released a great strategy guide entitled SMART, CONNECTED, AND PROFITABLE 5 steps to monetizing your IOT Strategy which is a fantastic read and I was intrigued to find out more. Robert Niemiec is a managing partner at Twisthink where he manages business strategy, day-to-day team leadership, and business development. Throughout his 15 years of entrepreneurial experience and 17 years of senior-level corporate experience, Robert has a proven track record of building high functioning, diverse teams that achieve success and deliver results so I invited him onto the show.
