This webinar covered the cutting-edge issues surrounding systems implementation for IoT, including…
The Edge: the mass deployment of sensors (sensorization) has given birth to predictive analytics, sometimes known as “Pattern of Life” (PoL) analysis, which gather data on past and current performance of machines to predict future behavior.
The Cloud and Backbone: use of software as a service has greatly reduced – but not eliminated – the need for on-site IT resources. How can the Cloud alleviate computing needs at the edge, and how does data produced from devices tie into ERP and other backbone systems?
Buy vs. Build: there are M2M/IoT platforms available in shrink-wrap (figuratively) that are designed for specific vertical-market applications, and there is no doubt that, in the right circumstances, they can reduce costs and time-to-market, but are there drawbacks?
