“We’re at a pivotal time for business in Australia,” said Frank Zeichner, Chief Executive Officer, IoT Alliance Australia. “IoT will make an enormous impact on nearly every business and industry, and whether that turns into an opportunity for your business or poses a serious threat to your future all depends on how well prepared you are. IoT impact is just the first step in a long road educating Australian businesses.”
