Ian Foddering - CTO for Cisco UK & Ireland


Ian Foddering, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) & Technical Director for Cisco UK & Ireland, reckons 50 billion things will be connected to the Internet by 2020.  Does that include a connected refrigerator, a connected asthma inhaler, and a connected cow?  Yes indeed.

With the type of connectivity that the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet of Everything (IoE) enables he believes that all companies will ultimately become digital data providers, from Nike to Barclays to Rolls Royce.

However Ian believes it is the data that will be most important asset and how it can be used in the most effective and transparent way is the key to the success of the IoT and IoE in the future.
