IBM IoT Strategic Overview: IBM is leading the way with unique innovations in the emerging Internet of Things market and delivering forward-thinking strategies and solutions to meet the challenges and unprecedented growth opportunities. Hear about the marketplace, the impact, challenges and opportunities that IoT is driving as well as what IBM's been doing in the IoT space with our end-to-end solutions.
Sensors and Gateways: IBM’s Tier 1-2 IoT architecture includes sesnors/devices and a gateway device to provide local access to sensor data, and to provide a staging area before sending all or some of the data to the cloud-based historian database. Applications may leverage the local database for immediate responses to sensor input, or for local analytics. An IBM Informix database is embedded in these gateway devices leveraging TimeSeries technology, allowing sensor generated time based data to be stored in 1/5 the space of a relational storage schema and accessed 5 times faster. Stored sensor data is accessed using traditional SQL, NoSQL APIs, as well as REST. We will explore the capabilities available and usage of Informix as a gateway device in an IoT architecture. We will also discuss some industry use cases for leveraging the database in a gateway device.
IBM IoT Foundation:Internet of Things solutions will always need to connect devices, collect data, assemble events and do so in a way that is managed. Learn how our new solution, the IBM Internet of Things Foundation, delivers this in a cloud hosted service. Make it the platform on which you build your next set of innovations.
Real-Time and Deep Analytics: Top Use Cases for Real-Time Analytics in the IoT: Real-time analytics plays a vital role in the Internet of Things. Real-time analytics turns data into action in the business moment. During this session, we will explore the required components of a real-time analytics platform including a fast, scale out architecture and out of the box analytics such as geospatial, voice, image, text, machine learning, predictive and more. We will bring the value of real-time analytics to life with industry examples and reference case studies include smart metering, patient monitoring, and predictive maintenance. The goal is to: optimize availability, performance, capacity and resources. InfoSphere Streams will allow you to harness the Internet of Things.
Context Computing and the IoT: In this session, Jeff Jonas, IBM Fellow and Chief Scientist of IBM's Context Computing group, will offer his views on how the rapidly increasing world of sensors, smart devices and gateways provides new opportunities and risks for using context computing to solve problems and gain insights. IBM's context computing technology, which was invented and has evolved to provide insights about people, places and things and their relationships, and is currently used by business and governments worldwide, is set to rapidly extend to cover machine-to-machine communication and other IoT patterns. The resulting capabilities will delight technology lovers and pose great opportunities for clever entrepreneurs. Risks, including security, privacy protection and IBM continuing emphasis on addressing them will also be covered.
