Identiverse Content Countdown Series


Part 1: IoT and Mobile

Our Identiverse (and Cloud Identity Summit!) alumni know that we run a pretty packed conference agenda. Our tenth anniversary year is no different. There’s a lot going on in the industry!

To help you navigate our high-quality, high-volume, high-energy week a little more easily—and to highlight some sessions that you might not otherwise spot—we’ll be running a blog series over the next few weeks leading up to Identiverse. The series will focus on particular topics and themes that’ll be covered in Washington, D.C., and it’ll showcase sessions, master classes and keynotes that are especially relevant to those themes. Keep in mind, these blogs aren’t intended to be extensive lists, so if you’re building your agenda or making a final decision whether to attend this year, check out the full agenda online. We’ll also be releasing the full agenda on the mobile app in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.

Before you start, if you’re unfamiliar with the general way our agenda is constructed, check out the agenda building blog here and this guide to the agenda.


Let’s Get This Countdown Series Started

For Part 1 of the series, we’ll focus on connected devices. Traditionally, there’s a trend toward thinking about ‘mobile’ and ‘IoT’ as two separate categories, and we do have two separate content blocks in this year’s agenda. However, there are increasing overlaps across these two topics. You’ll notice that we group them together as one category in the detailed agenda online, so I’ll cover both of them here.
