“Women in IOT” meet is an excellent initiative by Aeris to bring together women from varied backgrounds with similar interests, thereby providing us a platform to connect, discuss and share knowledge on IOT.

The information shared in the Meetup on Telematics was very well presented and was quite informative”

Sonal Rohilla, Idemia

 The event was a boost on the involvement of women in technology especially in Internet of Things. Since, IoT is a quite challenging technology not only in terms of complexity but only driving a use case keep a balance between the user privacy and the services offered. So seeing a real use case of IoT was really appealing. It would have been great if we could have some more professionals and some more durations for tech discussions. All in all, it was a great knowledgeable session especially in the eSIM segment and seeing IoT connectivity was sumptuous.
