    Did you go to ScotlandIS ScotSoft?

    Trying to select only 6 sessions at ScotSoft2017 was a challenge. It brought about a fear of missing out on other sessions that would be running simultaneously! So, from the sessions I attended, I took away 3 key takeaways and here’s what you need to know from ScotSoft 2017!

    1. Data management is what makes your idea take-off
    2. IoT and connected devices are everywhere
    3. Scotland is leading the way in healthcare innovation

    The Internet of Things, ie any electrical device connected to the internet, eg your house's heat and light, your toaster, your fridge. It is sold as a way of making life easier, eg if it's a cold evening and you are coming home early you can set the heating to come on before you leave work. Or your fridge can order milk for you when you are running long.

    It is also a recipe for a nightmare if the security isn't properly implemented.

    This makes no sense at all.

    Thanks, had hoped that. The other IoT was scarier.

    Hi, yes Internet of Things.

    In terms of data management - the speakers were all using an agile approach to their projects where they set up a prototype and gathered data to analyse before progressing their idea further.

    Duh!

    You mean just like every project has been managed since before computers even existed.

    That is pretty common. Its why you develop a prototype before producing a production model.
