Soon after the opening remarks, the summit was Kickstarted by Mr. T Dhandapani - Group CIO at TVS Motors, with a discussion on how IoT can help build smart manufacturing, which gave insights on the benefits and cost efficiencies of IoT for industrial purposes. The presentation was followed by a session on 'Google & IoT' by Mr. Subhash Chandra - India Lead of the Google Cloud platform, who began with a humble opening that said that they are in the industry only from the past 16 years and that they do have a lot to learn from the rest in the industry, who have decades of experiences. This attitude proves the reason for the success of the platform. It was then Ms. Kavya Dommeti who is the director of iBuild Innovation Pvt Ltd, who initiated a discussion on what it takes for India to become a global leader, with a profound presentation.

Other supporters included MSys Technologies, Diligent, Chipmonk Technnologies, IESA and many others.

Although the event was organized to majorly help gain insights on the opportunities of IoT, the event ended with a presentation on 'The Dark Side of IoT' by Mr. Abhinav Biswas. Abhinav, who is the ALT.CISO at the ECIL Govt. Of India, discussed on the security measures to be actually taken while providing products and services. A thought provoking discussion on how humans continue to demand to automate the smallest processes even after the work is made a lot easier today and on how IoT Ransomware is a threat to humanity in itself. With insights on the negative side, it certainly helped the delegates understand the importance to be given to security and privacy from the early design stages. The delegate crowd contained people from varied hierarchy levels from different domains of the Industry. With purely positive responses from every delegate and speaker, the organizers look forward to creating more tech-based opportunities through such events. All in all, the Global IoT conclave 2016 provided every attendee, plethora of ideas to innovate and build technologies in the best possible ways.
