Undetr the banner of “Exploring the Digital Society,” the third IFA+ Summit brings together thought leaders and industry pioneers to discuss issues and developments that are currently driving the process of digital transformation.

Arrayent CEO Brignone will take part in the IHS Technology PanelSmart World: Home Appliances” to be held Mon., Sept. 5 from 3:20-4:20 p.m. The focus of the discussion will be on how the world of IoT is impacting the smart home appliance market (white goods, major and small appliances).

“Launching good connected products today is no longer only about enabling control or monitoring,” said Brignone. “It is about enabling brands to create a richer user experience with a long-term commitment to the consumer to better serve them. Brand manufacturers who understand this will transform their businesses to open new revenue sources and have happier consumers.”
