Andrew Hopkins is a Managing Director and part of Accenture’s Internet of Things (IoT) practice. He oversees our collaboration with Intel and meets with our clients every day to discuss how IoT will impact their businesses and organizations and to help them get started and to realize value from their IoT investments.
Andrew will serve as Accenture’s judge at Digital Fight Club in August because he spends his days thinking how clients should take advantage of the new digital technologies – cloud, IoT, analytics and security-related to anticipate what’s coming, identify roadblocks and accelerators, and to make an educated decision on which is the best path forward. An opportunity to collaborate with thought leaders and hear compelling points of view is always a great way for Andrew to spend an evening.
