This growing adoption of smart devices will raise the importance of interoperability and speed in innovation as consumers will expect all devices to work together and offer the latest benefits.

"In the era of the Internet of Things, traditional development times for appliances are too slow.

  • David Bingham, Design System Curator, GE
  • Tom Kerber, Director, Research, Home Controls & Energy, Parks Associates
