Yesterday I traveled to Milwaukee, WI for the IoTTC 2019 Annual Meeting. The 2-day event, jointly hosted by University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and Rockwell Automation brought together a group of thought leaders to share insights, research, and best practices around the human side of digital transformation. Attendees represented a cross section of the very best from academia, industry, and government, all with unique experiences and viewpoints on the changing competitive landscape being shaped by the Forth Industrial Revolution.
