The M2M Online Debate – Top 100 influencers

Onalytica analysed the M2M online debate by looking at over 85,000 tweets to identify the top 100 individuals and brands that influence the discussion. The list of individuals includes those engaged in online discussions around M2M, IoT and Big Data.

Félix is an open data and big data specialist with experience in business development and a computer science background. His focus is on empowering companies, governments and social groups through access to data and the innovative use of public sources of information on the internet. At Podsystem, Félix is responsible for the development of the company’s big data strategy.

Felix said, “It was a fantastic surprise to find out I was included on Onalytica’s list of the top 100 influencers in M2M. It really is an honour to be on this list alongside other talented and prestigious thought leaders. The debate is moving very quickly and I look forward to participating in future discussions. With an estimated 100 billion devices to be connected by 2020 the challenges and opportunities for integration, regulation and implementation are enormous and there is no shortage of talking points. I will continue to work to contribute relevant, interesting and thought-provoking discussion and debate on topics such as M2M, the IoT, big data, analytics and open data, within social media and beyond.”
