Craig Boswell, president of HOBI International, Inc., is contributing to the 2017 ISRI Convention Spotlight on Electronics: The Internet of Things – Mobile Computing panel tomorrow afternoon in New Orleans.

Scrap processors are receiving more mobile devices than ever due rapidly increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets as primary computing devices. The increased number of mobile devices in the processing stream means new challenges in data security and collection, lines blurring between personal and business devices, and also new opportunities for value.

A second challenge processors can expect in the future is IoT devices. Connected devices, such as wearable and smart-home tech, bring more opportunities for revenue growth, but bring new data security challenges.

The Spotlight on Electronics: The Internet of Things – Mobile Computing panel takes place from 2 to 3:15 p.m tomorrow afternoon in rooms 265-266 of the Ernest N. Memorial Convention Center.  Boswell will discuss the future of processing mobile and connected devices with ISRI’s Bill Long, Gary Stephens of Renew Logic, and J.M Gideon Schroeder of Cisco Systems.
