Join 451 Research and Morrison & Foerster in Boston on November 5th at the invite-only Cycle of Innovation Summit to explore this year's theme: IoT in the enterprise and the M&A response.

In this session, you will see recent survey data on current usage, future adoption plans and leading use cases for IoT in the enterprise. How are startups and established players creating value for companies? We will then turn to the financial impact and look at how acquirers are responding to the rapidly evolving marketplace. We will start with a general overview of the tech M&A market, and then turn our attention to M&A in IoT. What happened to the expected IoT M&A gold rush? Although deal volume is poised to edge past last year’s number, total spending is dramatically down. Are buyers putting their money toward the leading use cases we’ve identified? Where do we see gaps that are not yet being addressed? What kinds of companies and technologies are seeing the highest valuations, and why? Where are we likely to see IoT deals in the future, and who are some likely buyers and targets?
