Cloud Billing Inventor and Aria Systems Co-Founder to Discuss IoT and Complex Recurring Revenue Strategies at Cloud Expo New York


Cloud Billing Inventor and Aria Systems Co-Founder to Discuss IoT and Complex Recurring Revenue Strategies at Cloud Expo New York Jun 2015

Brendan O'Brien to Lead Sessions and Moderate Panel With Participants From Constant Contact, MGI Research and ATG, Revealing Important Steps to Maximize Recurring Revenue in the Age of the IoT

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jun 02, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Aria Systems, which helps enterprises grow recurring revenue, today announced that its co-founder and inventor of cloud billing Brendan O'Brien, will be a featured speaker at the Cloud Expo, June 9 -11 at The Javits Center in New York. Aria also will be demonstrating its Active Monetization platform in Booth #424 on the Expo Floor.

O'Brien will lead the following sessions:

June 9 - 11:00 AM - 11:35 AM, Room 1A16 With participants from Constant Contact, MGI Research and ATG

Enabling Complex Recurring Revenue Strategies With IoT exploding, massive data will transform businesses with opportunities to monetize almost anything that can be measured. O'Brien will lead an expert panel of consultants, thought leaders and practitioners, who will look at these new monetization trends, discuss the implications, and detail lessons learned from their collective experience. Finally, the panel will point the way for enterprises who wish to leverage the resulting complex recurring revenue models, adding value and profit.

June 9 - 5:20 PM - 6:00 PM, Room 1A06

Power Panel: The Internet of Things: A New Age The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It also is forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision information technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. This session will address what this profound change means for today's IT professional.

June 10 - 3:30 PM - 4:05 PM Room 1A16

The Monetization of Things The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that's bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what isn't being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems. The session will discuss how to: - Handle a variety of monetization models and pivot without coding - Respond to a "bottom up," user-driven version of capitalism - Analyze consumption data to quickly create targeted offerings
