1:30pm: Registration. IoT Bootcamp attendees will receive a name badge and be assigned to a table with 5-8 other delegates. You and your table mates will function as a small group team through the Bootcamp.
2.00pm: IoValue: Intelligence in Community Ecosystems. Smart connectivity combines with information sharing to create Intelligence in Community Ecosystems, unleashing new potential in environmental standards, operational management and citizen services, while also unlocking bottoms up economic opportunities in the private sector. We will kick off the Bootcamp with a panel discussion that drills down into key issues associated with this sector: ‘how to’ locate value, develop the business case, identify best practices in service delivery and process management, and evaluate ‘lessons learned’. After the discussion, each small group will be asked to address questions tied to specific Intelligence in Community scenarios.

- Shawn Slack, CIO, Mississauga

2.50pm: Backing the Winner(s) in Building the IoT Stack. Following analysis of the vertical use case explored in Intelligence in Community Ecosystems, the Bootcamp will consider how implementers can assemble viable solutions that combine sensor technologies, connectivity, data analytics and other essential IoT components. The session will focus on how IoT users can work to ensure that their solutions work together and that they have adopted market winning standards. Small group discussions will centre on developing approaches to planning for IoT implementation and expansion.
- Savio Lee, Ingram Micro
- Ted Longley, ORION Network
- Michael Cardy, Red Hat
3:40pm: Privacy and Security. The third Bootcamp session will focus on privacy and security issues associated with IoT. As the IoTCC working group definition states, “as the source of both new service delivery and unprecedented intrusion into the personal realm, the monitoring and management of personal data in IoT is a curse and a blessing. Securing this data, as well as data from complex business and industrial systems, takes on added weight in IoT solutions as the consequence of failure may impact regulatory compliance or critical physical infrastructure.” Panel and small group discussion questions will explore plans and processes that can be put in place to address privacy and security requirements across vulnerable, interconnected IoT solutions.
- Faud Khan, Twelvedot
- Matthew Swarney, Motorola Solutions

4.30pm: Open Forum: Discussion of Economic Drivers for IoT in Canada. We will close the IoT Bootcamp agenda with an “all hands” discussion of what is driving (or will drive) the need for IoT solutions across the Canadian economy. We will ask panellists Rick Huijbregts (Cisco), Shawn Slack (Mississauga) and Savio Lee (Ingram Micro) to kick off the discussion, and will invite each attendee to contribute their questions and perspectives on IoT drivers in the Canadian context.
5:20: Networking reception. The Bootcamp concludes with a networking reception at which attendees can meet with other Canadian professionals who are driving the IoT agenda in Canada.
