Optimizing data integration across heterogenous IoT devices and gateways when developing and deploying smart applications at the edge
  • Speaker Sandhya Krishnamurthy - Sr. Systems Engineer, Actian Corporation

Efforts to derive value from IoT continue to grow, with a multitude of new applications based on a range of developer communities, including Android, iOS, embedded Linux and Windows, running on standard and customized Intel and ARM hardware.  However, metadata management, data movement, security, and governance of data associated with apps and associated data across a multitude of architectures presents several challenges that are poorly addressed by outdated data management tools such as local files or driving all data back into the Cloud. 

Join this session to hear how a single, secure, scalable data management platform can provide improved connectivity and security by reducing integration complexity, cost, and better performance across multiple platforms.  Experience a real-world demo in Python with source code samples showing how you can code once and deploy to multiple target platforms benchmarked head-to-head with SQLite and SQLite in combination with MS SQL in an edge IoT to Cloud configuration scenario.
