An overabundance of business and social challenges confront all of us around the world every day. Just think about the pressing issues of global competition, disruption, and digitization, along with poverty, hunger, and joblessness. Today, however, we can do more than just imagine how to overcome these enduring problems, whether they're on the manufacturing floor, at an offshore oil rig, in the fields of agriculture or the streets of major cities. Today, we can solve global industry, environmental and societal problems like never before. A new generation of networking technologies, innovation breakthroughs, and business partnerships are making leapfrog progress to improve lives and livelihoods. In this presentation, Cisco's Vice President of Strategic Innovation, and bestselling author of, "Building the Internet of Things," addresses how the combination of these advances are transforming business outcomes while solving social problems throughout Latin America and the world.
