We are all excited – the Bosch ConnectedWorld 2014 conference has opened today.

More than 400 technical and business decision makers, analysts and thought leaders from all over the world share their thoughts about the business potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).

In case you couldn’t make it to Berlin, here is a short wrap-up of the first day.

  • @iotwatch #iot hashtag of the day is  #bcw14
  • @FHoppe Nice discussion at #BCW14: Who owns the data in an #IoT World? The answer: The cloud ;-)
  • @CATIABoss Markus Loffler @McKinsey at #bcw14 speaks about 3 revolutions : IOT, 3D Printing and Advanced Robotics. We can not more agree @Dassault3DS
  • @mjays Conclusion: 1) Beware of significant disruption 2) redevelop vision & capabilities 3) experiment w/ startup-approach & quickly scale #bcw14
  • @JuergenAnke Jim Morrish of @MachinaResearch says that IoT needs an “”iPhone Moment”” to make various less integrated components work together. #bcw14
  • @caro_buck Application developers will be king in the #iot space, says @jimmorrish at #BCW14. Open platforms and standards will be kong, me thinks.
  • @JuergenAnke After 70 mins we arrived at the key question “”Who owns the data?”” Nobody knows but everybody likes to exploit it. #bcw14 Same as on #iotwf
  • @JuergenAnke Surprised how much connected functionality is already included in the BMW i-Series: parking, traffic, public transport, car status. #bcw14
  • @Gert_at_work 400+ attendees at #BCW14 AWESOME! #MongoDB sponsors the event so stop by

    Thanks for the wrap-up, Anita. There are lots of exciting things going on in the IoT world. The question of, “who owns the data” is a good one. Seems to differ by application type and sometimes by the location in the world. Thanks for the blog summary!

      Hi Steve, thanks! Really, the data question was one of the most discussed topics – during coffee breaks as well as in Q&A sessions. For me personally, I take this away as one of the most pressing topics from the conference.
