Speaker information

Jeannine Sargent, President of Innovation and New Venture, Flextronics

By 2020, there is expected to be 50 billion smart and connected devices generating over 13 trillion euros in economic value. Embedding intelligence into the products and devices themselves – in the form of sensors, software, processing, along with connectivity to other devices and the cloud – is enabling entirely new functionality and more applications than ever possible before. We call this evolving ecosystem of smart, connected devices, machines and systems the “Intelligence of Things”.

Bringing these solutions to market will transform traditional product development processes and business models by requiring high levels of collaboration and synergy across multiple external organizations from product concept, technology integration, and access to multiple markets.

Guest speaker Jeannine Sargent will discuss how companies in industries as varied as healthcare, automotive and consumer devices are adapting and bringing a new set of smart and connected solutions to market.
