s868 - Are Your IoT Devices, Applications and Data secure? The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a huge business opportunity across almost every industry. However, it is also creating a massive attack surface in the enterprise, introduced by the scale and pace of adoption, as well as the physical consequences of compromised security. Until now, security has been treated as an afterthought; by adding layers of security after devices are delivered, with infrastructure and applications already in place. But security for the IoT is too important to be treated as an afterthought. IoT’s unique characteristics are also forcing a fundamental rethink about how Enterprises need to implement security management for devices and data. To combat these challenges, Device Authority has developed an enterprise IoT security blueprint which details device and data security guidelines for organizations of all sizes and industries. In IoT there is not one organization or one solution which can solve everything – it’s important to use expertise from within the wider ecosystem. Comodo CA provides trusted, mutual-authentication solutions, utilizing PKI certificates and high-availability, batch-issuance system for admins to easily enroll, download and decrypt quickly and efficiently. Gemalto provides Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) and Key Management System (KMS) for automated PKI certificate provisioning, high-assurance device authentication and managed end-to-end encryption at IoT scale. Organizations benefit from flexible options for secure and centralized key management, whether in physical, virtualized infrastructure, and public cloud environments. Data Protection on Demand gives customers options when migrating operations to the cloud and/or through a managed services model. Existing security solutions have evolved as an afterthought for the changing digital world. We now have an opportunity to include security earlier on at the design stage, in the new IoT world. Device identity and integrity are the new perimeters for IoT. Data security and privacy are extremely important to enterprise IoT use cases. Any enterprise-class IoT security solution requires a combination of automated PKI, high assurance PKI key storage and management, along with enterprise data security platform integration. In this session, learn about: • Device and Data Security • Implementing and running security operations at IoT scale • Meeting Compliance requirements and requests • Meeting performance requirements as per the use case Breakout Session Rao cherukuri, Device Authority

Breakout Session Stephen Shaw, PTC
Jim Barrett-Smith, PTC
s895 - Beyond Product Cost Estimates – The Holistic Design Approach for Engineering Leaders Ascertainment of product cost is required during every stage of the product development lifecycle. At the engineering stage, 70% of product costs gets defined, as specifications are frozen at design release. More than half of engineering effort gets wasted in design rework, which happens due to sub-optimized design not from just cost point of view but largely due to manufacturability challenges. It is imperative that organizations must front-load these decisions as there is much more flexibility at the beginning of an engineering cycle and a focus on aspects of design that drive and contribute to cost. We will demonstrate how simple changes to the design process can dramatically reduce product cost and improve design quality and how engineering leaders play a pivotal role in providing significant benefits to the organization. In this session, we will see how organizations can take a step towards getting early visibility of the product cost and focus on key areas that will help to build new innovative products faster and acceptable cost to their customers.

s908 - ‘Configure-to-Order’ Aided by Digital Manufacturing The intense pressure to fulfill an ever-growing appetite for custom products is leading manufacturers to re-think strategy. Inability to customize products adequately limits the number of variants offered and results in ceding market share to those who can. Incorporating custom requirements in a ‘made to stock’ product is hard to deliver as it involves elaborate re-configurations that can and do result in fulfillment delays and lost productivity. However, being able to deliver custom – ‘made to specification’ – products is becoming necessary to stay competitive in the market. Digital engineering paradigms can enable companies to transition their offerings to custom products. Those that successfully make this shift will attract customers desiring specific product configurations and features, and willing to pay only for those components and features. This instinct to pay only for the utility in need has been at the heart of all commercial activity since our species began trading. However, it is only through digital technologies can this need be addressed. This value proposition is a natural lead into Service Management. Infosys helps its customers conceptualize, develop, and deploy transformations necessary to design, engineer, manufacture, and sell products ‘made to specification’. With experience in digital constructs like the digital twin, Infosys helps companies learn, improve, and monetize insights that emerge from the workings of the digital twins – the ‘product as designed’ versus the ‘product as operated’. Infosys works on these transformations in a value-driven agile manner. Breakout Session Ramchandra Kulkarni, Infosys
