Our August event is going to be one you do not want to miss!
IoT or Internet of Things, is a subject floating around many IT shops and likely gets brought up company wide. Some organizations are having great success, some are failing miserably, and some do not even know where to start.

Join the WTA on August 15th, where we learn about what it is, and hear from two local WI companies, as they tell us how they have used this great technology to create highly successful businesses.

Agenda: 2-5:30pm
