Just returned from an extremely successful  in Nashville in which Recalibrate was the theme. I learned lots and I am still convinced that we are Becoming the Internet of Things and most of what we do not know revolves around our evolving new identities as walking and talking IoT.

My many years in the building automation industry has taught me when recalibrating a deep knowledge of what we are recalibrating and a history of the past is very important.

Definition of recalibrate. transitive verb. :to calibrate (something) again … these systems gradually drift off course so that the navigator periodically needs a fresh point of reference to recalibrate the navigation system.

With a plethora of enterprise software platforms and new connection standards like 5G CBRS presented at the event, we are reminded of the dot-com days of radical change.

Can so many platforms exist without dot-crashing? Hard to say as these platforms require an amazing community of practice to be successful which has more value than the actual platforms. Maybe a better way to view each platform is as a community of practice COP,  not a software identity in this manner I feel success can be achieved using the COP that created that platform. It is not the secret sauce of the platforms but the people that bring the solutions and structure and never before done features. When they are removed the platform value is questioned.

Be sure to read our complete review Recalibrate for 2020 Vision2020

It provides an amazing capture with opinion and observation of the event in Nashville but several recalibrations with their own accounting of have come in since this review was completed. A few highlights are listed below,
