Digital Marketing — Tools and Methodologies

Joint presentation IEEE Ottawa Section Consultants Network and IET Ottawa LN

Not your Grandmother’s Marketing – The impact of SaaS and AI

 Since Google’s arrival on the scene in the late 1990’s,
marketing took a turn to digital, never to look back again.  With the proliferation of technologies such
as Artificial Intelligence, and novel business models like
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), marketing tools and techniques continue to
rapidly evolve.  Our eyes glued to
screens of devices of all sizes, we are at the same time a willing victim and a
reluctant participant in the marketing dance in both our professional and
personal lives.  These combined bring a
huge democratization of marketing for businesses, allowing for successful
growth in the most unlikely locations.

Speaker: Dobrila Rancic Moogk

Dobrila is VP Marketing at Giatec Scientific, an IoT company
revolutionizing concrete testing.
Through her work in and with start-ups on strategic marketing, Dobrila’s
passion for accelerating commercialization of innovation results in significant
growth and scale-up.  This is combined
with her drive to lead her university students to stellar career starts by
passing on her cutting-edge SaaS marketing skills to the next generation of
business leaders.

 Over her 25 years’
experience in the high-tech industry spanning North America
and Europe, she held marketing and R&D leadership
positions with dynamic corporations such as Bell-Northern Research, LSI
Logic, and MOSAID, among others.  Dobrila
has a BSEE, as well as Master of Engineering, and MBA degrees from University
of Ottawa.

 She is a member of
the Board of Directors of Invest Ottawa and Bayview Yards, the Community Impact
Cabinet at United Way East Ontario,
past chair of Volunteer Ottawa, and past vice-chair of the Women in Engineering
and Computer Science at University of
Ottawa.

Abstract:

In mobile access networks, different types of Internet of Things (IoT) devices (e.g., sensor nodes and smartphones) will generate vast traffic demands, thus dramatically increasing the traffic loads of their connected access nodes, especially in the 5G era. Mobile edge computing enables data collected by IoT devices to be stored in and processed by local fog nodes as well as allows IoT users to access IoT applications via these nodes at the same time. In this case, the communications latency critically affects the response time of IoT user requests. Owing to the dynamic distribution of IoT users, drone base station (DBS), which can be flexibly deployed over hotspot areas, can potentially improve the wireless latency of IoT users by mitigating the heavy traffic loads of macro BSs. Drone-based communications poses two major challenges: 1) DBS should be deployed in suitable areas with heavy traffic demands to serve more users; 2) traffic loads in the network should be allocated among macro BSs and DBSs to avoid instigating traffic congestions. Therefore, we propose a TrAffic Load balancing (TALL) scheme in such drone-assisted fog network to minimize the wireless latency of IoT users. In the scheme, we divide the problem into two sub-problems and design two algorithms to optimize the DBS placement and user association, respectively. Extensive simulations have been set up to validate the performance of TALL.
