Less than six months after introducing its vision for Enterprise Asset Intelligence (EAI), Zebra, in partnership with the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard (TECH) assembled 40 leading executives, industry experts and policymakers for the 2016 Innovation Symposium: The Intelligent Enterprise. Executives from organizations such as Google, GE Healthcare and IBM defined the “Intelligent Enterprise” and explored best practices and opportunities for organizations of varying sizes and industries related to the Internet of Things (IoT).

The TECH has unveiled a whitepaper summarizing the outcomes of the discussion along with some considerations that are paramount to the successful adoption and deployment of IoT solutions and how organizations can harness their full potential. Zebra’s EAI Consulting Practice brings proven methodologies, tools and vertical expertise to help define the right future state for operational efficiency and accelerate desired business outcomes.

James Morley Smith, EMEA CTO, Director of User Experience, Innovation & Design, Zebra Technologies:

The concept of the ‘Intelligent Enterprise’ is about making businesses as smart and connected as the world that surrounds us. A sensor may seem like a small device, but when married with the troves of data and the ability to understand – and act – on it brings a big wave of technological innovation, creativity and new levels of intelligence to our world. To make the Intelligent Enterprise a reality, companies from across industries must band together to come up with and agree upon standard practices and guidelines so all enterprises can connect and be more intelligent.”
