Abhisam Industrial IoT Workshop announced

Abhisam is pleased to announce that the Abhisam Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) workshop will be held from 9-10 March 2018 in Powai, Mumbai.

Call Now on 7208060349 to get more information & register.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a much talked about technology in the press, yet many of the use cases shown are from the domestic and consumer world such as Fitbits (personal fitness monitors) and smart homes. However the most valuable part of the IoT ecosystem will be what is known as the Industrial IoT. This part will be as much as 70% (by value) of the entire IoT market and it is important for everybody in industry and business to know. The IIoT does not refer to just pure industrial applications of IoT but also those which are a blend of industrial and enterprise applications, such as integrated cold chains, logistics applications, electrical distribution and utilities, just to name a few.


To enable engineers, technologists and managers to learn about this exciting new technology, Abhisam has organized the Industrial Internet of Things workshop. This intensive two day hands on workshop will cover all aspects of the IIoT and is not just for hobbyists but for practicing engineers and technologists who wish to know about it and participate in this new world.

All participants will get a Certificate of Participation from Abhisam.
