Orange, CA, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CBT, a leading IT/OT Domain Expert Integrator, announces its second annual IoT Awards to celebrate the leaders who are shaping the future of technology and industry. The market for the Internet of Things is expected to grow 18% to 14.4 billion active connections this year.

At CBT, we believe that advances in IoT will continue to accelerate through the convergence of two core but traditionally independent technologies: informational technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), along with innovations in rapidly emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and augmented reality (AR).

Expanding on last year’s program there will be two Award categories for 2022:

  1. Top 100 IoT Influencer Awards – Expanding from the  2021 list of’ Top 25’, Selection of the ‘Top 100’ will be based on a combination of indexes including social influence and rankings, influencer reach and engagement, content creation, and credentials. No application required as it will be weighted by various dimensions of social reach. We will also name a single ‘IoT Influencer of the Year’ from among this list.
  2. IoT Transformation Leader of the Year – One award recipient will be selected; this leader should be ‘hands-on’ and have experience leading a large scale IoT transformation and be able to show project ROI. Selection for this Award will be based on the application process and judges’ review.

Applications for IoT Transformation Leader of the Year are now open: to apply. All winners will be announced in early December. List of past winners: here
