Iridium’s amazing journey – and what’s NEXT

Iridium’s satellite network is 20 years old, and its survival and growth since inception is quite a story. The system is a success because it has been a unique innovation platform for hundreds of applications, and the company is now launching a replacement network called Iridium NEXT that will be even more powerful and drive exciting new services.

Matt will explain the transformation underway at Iridium and what’s ahead for the resurging satellite industry.

Nike Digital Sport: the evolution of connected products and experiences

For over 10 years, digital services and experiences have been a key driver in positioning Nike’s brand as an innovation leader. Nike’s Digital Technology team was an early pioneer in quantifying consumers digitally through the Nike+ franchise, including the Nike+ FuelBand and Nike+ Basketball. Nike’s digital product offense has evolved substantially since then, with sharper focus on connectedness, insights, and tighter integration with services. We’ll discuss the evolution of Nike’s connected products and associated services, as well as key lessons learned that inform the company’s future roadmap.
