IoT: Tales from the Front Line
Joe Costello - Enlighted, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA
There is a lot of talk about the potential of the Internet of Things. But what is happening on the front lines? Where are the examples of real impact?
Enlighted CEO Joe Costello will discuss how the IoT is impacting commercial real estate, the largest asset class in the world, by giving buildings a “sensory system” akin to a human body. Once deployed, there are a multitude of new opportunities to improve business processes thanks to granular data that has never been available before.
Learn how this technology is currently being developed and applied, the challenges, along with predictions for the future of IoT in commercial buildings.
Biography: Joe Costello has been a high tech executive and CEO for the last 28 years. He became the CEO of Cadence Design Systems in 1987 and worked with the company from its inception until it became the largest electronic design automation (EDA) company in the world, with over a billion dollars in annual revenue.
Since the early 90s, Joe has been the mastermind behind numerous start-ups based around the idea of the Internet of Things, even before the phrase was even coined. Specifically, Joe started an incubator in 2000 and worked on IoT from late 2000 – 2004. That incubator included Orb Networks, which pursued IoT for entertainment-oriented applications and led to the creation of a platform for media distribution, management and control called AllPlay. Qualcomm acquired Orb Networks in 2013 and Joe joined its Qualcomm IoT platform group to help spearhead the creation and promotion of AllJoyn.
Costello was named the top CEO of America in 1997 by Chief Executive Magazine.
In recognition of his service to the EDA industry, he was awarded the Phil Kaufman award in 2004, the highest accolade in the EDA industry. Costello has also served as a board member of dozens of companies including Oracle, Macromedia, Clarify and Mercury Interactive as well as numerous private companies.
