The Executives’ Club of Chicago Hosts Business Technology Leadership Forum at IIT Downtown Campus

The Executives’ Club of Chicago presents “The Internet of Things,” a Business Technology Leadership Forum on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, at IIT’s Downtown Campus.

The rise of objects that connect themselves to the Internet — from jumbo jets to heart monitors to stoplights — is unleashing a wave of new possibilities for data gathering, predictive analytics, and IT automation. By 2020, it’s estimated that more than 50 billion objects will be connected — and that’s just the beginning. What are the implications for business as the world becomes more connected?

Join The Executives’ Club of Chicago’s Technology Committee for a discussion on the “Internet of Things” and its inevitable impact on everyday life and the way the world does business.

Panelists include:

  • Mark Karasek, Executive Vice President, Engineering & Chief Technology Officer, The Chamberlain Group, Inc.
  • Jim MacLennan, Chief Information Officer, IDEX Corporation
  • Rob Soderbery, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Networking Group, Cisco
  • Moderated by Michael Mensik, Partner, Baker & McKenzie
