One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Essential Eight Technologies: Internet of Things

The IoT refers to the connection of all kinds of devices to the internet and to each other. It is a network that spans two overlapping areas: communication and information technologies. The first is smart, connected products and services, including consumer devices like smart watches. The second is the collection of data to improve business performance. This includes the industrial Internet of things (IIoT), when manufacturers and other industrials collect and analyze data from equipment, machines and other sources. With this data, they can improve processes, predict and prevent problems, and ultimately create superior ecosystems for new products and services. The global IoT market is expected to reach $1.3 trillion by 2020. Nearly three-quarters (73%) of executives responding to our 2017 Global Digital IQ Survey say they’re already investing in the IoT, and 63% say they will be investing in three years.

Among our Essential Eight Technologies presented by PWC respondents to the survey said the IoT was the one in which they most expect to invest. Respondents rank the IoT technology as the most disruptive technology to industry and business models. Companies across industries are investing in the IoT. They are using the IoT to provide consumers with a better experience and to increase the effectiveness of their products and services. The goal? Overall, to make life easier and better by
automating tasks, improving healthcare, making homes and cars safer, and saving electricity and water, among other things.
