As part of the discussion, Cisco will announce the results of a new study that quantifies the value of IoE to public sector organizations of the next 10 years.  The bottom-up analysis offers an in-depth look at how public sector organizations can leverage IoE to generate cost savings, new revenues, improved employee productivity and deliver enhanced citizen experience.

IoE is the networked connection of people, process, data and things. The compound impact it is having as “everything” comes online is creating unprecedented opportunities for organizations, individuals, communities and countries to realize dramatically greater value from the increased connectedness.

By enabling new connections between people, processes, data and things, governments and their agencies globally worldwide can save money and generate new revenue, while generating quantifiable benefits for citizens.
