Onica at re:Invent 2018

Read Time: 2 minutes

Every year, AWS’ re:Invent conference offers a glimpse into the future of a world engrossed in the cloud. AWS continues to grow at an impressive pace, and Onica is excited to be a part of AWS re:Invent. An immersive experience with a variety of events aimed at giving an all-access pass to AWS expertise, technical content, and learning opportunities, re:Invent offers the allure of enhancing knowledge of the cloud while engaging with the fast-paced world of AWS. The Onica team will be very active around the conference to not only support AWS’ new endeavours, but also offer valuable insights into cloud issues your company may be facing.

Perhaps the most exciting event for Onica at this re:Invent will be the unveiling of IoTanium. The IoTanium Development Board is expected to offer businesses an edge by facilitating IoT time to production and allowing companies to focus on the value of the IoT application rather than on other time consuming tasks such as connectivity, charging, provisioning, device management, and security. AWS re:Invent will be the first time IoTanium is unveiled to the public, and will offer insights into the power of IoT in building and connecting devices, collecting data, and performing real-time and batch analytics.
