Key Challenge Panel: Effective Integration of IT & OT in IoT Deployments

In the Key Challenge Panel series, the IoT World Keynotes discuss some of the key issues affecting the effective widespread adoption of IoT.

One of the characteristic features of IoT deployments a scale is that they require close interworking of OT (operational technology) with IT. A  key challenge for many organizations will be management of IT/OT convergence projects because of inherent differences how their IT and OT groups see the problem and solution.

Benefits of IT/OT integration include reduced operating costs, shorter development time and common platforms, the extension policy and security across networks, and optimization of business processes.

But challenges include issues such as project ownership, communication between groups and with stakeholders, and adapting or harmonizing conflicting organization needs, process and policy into a single and common structure.

This panel discusses real market experience in bridging the IT/OT divide.

Scale IoT Profits not Costs. Scale Insights not IoT Infrastructure

Amazon are fond of saying ‘Friends don’t let friends build Datacentres’. That this mantra is self-serving doesn’t make it any less true. In IoT terms, projects start out with good intentions but bloat grows quickly – dedicated VPNs, standalone silos…..what seemed like a quick hack to prove a concept quickly becomes tomorrow’s legacy issue. This might be tolerable in isolation – but it’s catastrophic at Asia-scale, where cities are being built Smart-first and infrastructure for over three billion people is being built by US, European and local companies. Join Asavie’s Keith O’Byrne to find out how to scale your IoT projects profitably but avoid falling into the trap of uncontrolled infrastructure expansion. In this session you will learn how to empower your IoT strategy by:

  • Aggregating secure IoT connectivity across multiple mobile network operators
  • How a flexible network architecture is key to maintaining autonomy of your IoT strategy from edge to Cloud
  • Why the public internet is NOT the best place for your IoT project
  • How to achieve a multi-cloud strategy

Get Started With IoT: The Three Guiding Principles

Getting started with IoT can seem like a monumental task for most businesses. Many IoT projects struggle to get off the ground as both IT and Business functions grapple with the far-reaching implications of the IoT on their organization.

Every instinct tells you to do it all - cram it all in. But doing too much too soon results in scope creep – maybe even project failure - and tough questions about ROI will soon follow.

Avoid the obstacles of IoT adoption by following these core principles:

  • Start small, scale fast
  • Failing fast is not failure.
  • Prove value very very quickly

Why Are We Stuck in Pilot Purgatory?

As members of the IoT ecosystem, the value of IoT is obvious to us, and we have a deep understanding on how to implement the technology. However, for end users that are not IoT experts, IoT is complicated. The value may seem evident, but in order for users to scale their IoT solution, they need quantifiable, relevant data. For B2B IoT to reach to the billions of connected objects analysts predict, we, as members of the IoT ecosystem, must all provide more than a solution, we must assume the role of coach to customers and end users at every phase of their journey, so we can together move from pilot purgatory to fully deployed solution providing valuable data.

In this keynote, Christian Olivier, President of Sigfox USA, will talk about the customer journey, opportunities for end user education, helping customers walk before they run, defining project’s value, and the invaluable role of the ecosystem.---

Zen and the Art of Predictive Maintenance

Failing costs a lot. This is true across software, industrial manufacturing, medical care and more. But the question asks itself: How can we make production cheaper and safer by predicting failures before there's even a problem at all? Software development has compilers, unit tests, functional tests and logging/monitoring tools, but how can we guarantee the same levels of safety, especially when everything runs in production? This is particularly important given that failure in industrial or medical manufacturing may mean severe consequences, which can easily include death. We’ve reached a tipping point where computers, and more specifically, microcontrollers, have gotten powerful enough and small enough that they can be integrated into hardware to communicate when hardware shows signs of failure long before it fails. Connect these mini computers to more powerful machines or the Cloud and you’ve got a framework to prevent catastrophic failure. Come to this talk to learn the pieces involved and how to set them all up into a real world predictive maintenance framework.

Lunch Keynote: IoT Reality Check: Lone Wolves Don’t Win

After getting past the hype of billions of connected devices, trillions in economic opportunity, and petabytes of data overflows, there are tens of thousands of real-world, success stories. There are also many untold implementation failures.  A recent Cisco study found that 60 percent of IoT initiatives stalled at the Proof of Concept stage, and only 26 percent of companies considered their IoT projects a complete success. Nonetheless, this year 60 percent of global organizations still plan to adopt IoT projects. What separates successes from failures?

In this session from the New York Times bestselling author of, “Building the Internet of Things” and Cisco executive, Maciej Kranz underscores the critical importance of ecosystems in planning, executing, and scaling IoT projects.  His mantra?  “Don’t be a lone wolf!” It takes a best-of-breed, ecosystem approach – both internally and externally – to mount successful IoT projects and capture their full potential for transformational business value. In this session, you will learn everything you need to know about leading the next wave of the IoT revolution, including:

  • How to galvanize a “coalition of the willing” within your own company and partner ecosystem across horizontal, vertical, and regional specialists
  • Four fast paths to IoT payback with multi-industry examples
  • Eight proven ingredients in any IoT recipe for success
  • Key IoT technologies driving transformational rather than incremental value

Case Study: Innovating Public Private Partnership with the San Francisco Fiber Project

To close the digital divide, and to provide more choice, competition, and affordable Internet service prices, the City of San Francisco is seeking to develop a citywide network that provides fiber-based Internet service directly to every home and business. This network will be both universal throughout the City - available to everybody in San Francisco, regardless of income  - and open-access, so that any qualified entity who wants to provide service to residents and businesses should be able to do so. Additionally, the City anticipates that a subsidy to provide low-income San Franciscans with free or reduced-cost Internet will be necessary. 

To make this highly innovative project a reality, the City has identified multiple ways to meet the stated project goals, including procuring a life-cycle, public-private partnership (P3) contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the citywide fiber network. This presentation will examine how the city innovated the structure of the P3 and discusses the implications for the city, its partners and the people of San Francisco.

Embedded Systems Development Using Modern Software Practices

Ever see a cobweb and wonder how it was created so quickly?  Similar to that cobweb, embedded systems and resulting software are growing exponentially.  The advancement in hardware unleashed ample potential in software coding.  It is of utmost importance to ensure that code is of highest quality.  Lives depend on it.  A known challenge for autonomous vehicle development is system integration and validation techniques to ensure quality code.

Traditional product development stems from a physical hardware point of view then adds the software layer. With the tide changing with complexity, companies must drive development with software.  Companies with software in their core that are now moving towards product development in the physical world are able to accomplish speed to market faster than the spider that made that web.  How?  By driving development with modern software practices such as test driven development and continuous integration.  But how do we apply these practices in an embedded world?  

In this session we'll discuss how to use modern software practices within embedded systems development resulting in fast scalable embedded systems development and reduced cost, and happy developers.

  • Learn how to test drive an embedded component.
  • Learn how to mock out/simulate an unavailable component.
  • Learn how to apply Test Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI) and Mocking to achieve a scalable software process on an embedded project.

The Inadvertent IoT Platform: PostgreSQL

It's no secret that the so-called "Internet of Things" is less about the Things, but the data. And it is a lot of data. Every day, more of the physical world's manufacturing operations, food production systems, trains we commute on-- connected to the Internet and automated, creating more and more streams of sensor data.

Multiply the millions of things by the amount of data per device, and you get an exponentially growing torrent of information being used to make better business decisions, provide better end user experiences, and produce more while wasting less.

Most engineering teams (including ours, early on in our company history) working on these initiatives end up storing all of this data in a "platform" or in multiple databases connected with different queues and pipelines, with metadata in a relational database and time-series data in a NoSQL store. Yet each of these databases operate differently; running a polyglot database architecture adds operational and application complexity that's unnecessary and relying on 3rd party platforms can be limiting and expensive. You don't need to do this.

In this talk, I'll show you how to keep all of your IoT relational and time-series data together in PostgreSQL (yes, even at scale), and how that leads to simpler operations, more useful contextualized data, and greater ease of use. We'll also highlight other awesome PostgreSQL features relevant to IoT, like query power, flexible data types, geospatial support, and a rich ecosystem of tools and connectors, which basically allow you to roll your own IoT data platform.

IDC estimates that the amount of data created and copied annually will reach 180 Zettabytes in 2025, up from less than 10 Zettabytes in 2015. With machine learning, this abundance of data from constantly-streaming connected machines and sensors offers huge potential to provide intelligence and value that can improve operational efficiencies, foresee maintenance requirements, and deliver smarter and faster business decisions. But most of it will be somewhat wasteful, not that interesting, and certainly not worth saving for any extended periods of time. With zettabytes of data flowing through IoT systems, the question becomes: How do you wade through this ocean of data to extract the value and intelligence needed to operate in a data-centric world? 

This session will share strategies for understanding the difference in data between content and context in an IoT environment, and how to unlock the value of data through edge-to-cloud digital storage environments. As a data storage solutions leader, Western Digital Corporation is focused on creating environments for data to thrive wherever that data lives. Providing real-world examples, Vice President Christopher Bergey will explore how data-intensive applications across connected automotive, IIoT and smart surveillance can maximize the potential for Fast Data insights and critical real-time responsiveness at the edge and avoid Big Data paralysis.

Static Analysis for Source and Binary: Improving Security While Reducing Time-to-Market

Being able to deliver secure code repeatedly and efficiently is a driving factor for software engineering teams. Security of an IoT device depends heavily on the software that drives the device. Even small mistakes in the source code can lead to disastrous consequences. Static analysis helps to find these mistakes early in the development cycle and is a great way to help software teams deliver better code faster. Static analysis uncovers traditional vulnerabilities such as buffer overruns and uninitialized variables. It also tracks tainted data, data that enters the system through network connections, or user input and makes sure that it is properly assessed before being used. Lastly it can find malicious code that has been added into the project that may try to execute commands, load libraries or create wayward processes.

In this session we will look at how static analysis helps improve security at the source while delivering greater development efficiency.

Build Complex Things, Simply

Why is making hardware so hard? First, the total time and cost to launch a differentiated product is prohibitively high because of expensive and iterative design, manufacturing and testing. Second, system form factors aren’t flexible -- connected things require richer features and/or smaller sizes. And finally, there’s unnecessary complexity in the manufacturing and component supply chain. Unlike software development, hardware design is slow, cumbersome, and not fun for designers. The result is continued proliferation of mass-produced, “one size fits all” solutions versus a wide range of cost effective solutions that support empowered individual choice.

The solution? The zGlue ZiPlet Store-- a unique platform where users can build complex things as simply as stacking blocks. The zGlue Integrated Platform (ZiP) simplifies designing and manufacturing devices for IoT systems by providing seamless integration of both hardware and software on a modular platform.

Using specific customer examples (ranging from BOE Technologies Group, a leading supplier of displays and intelligent interface products and services to several innovative start-ups), Zhang will explain how this new platform accelerates product development and helps customers to quickly develop differentiated prototypes, while also reducing time to market, cost, system form factor, and design complexity. The platform is suitable for both high-growth consumer and high-volume industrial markets.

Apache Spark and Apache Ignite: Where Fast Data Meets the IoT

It is not enough to build a mesh of sensors or embedded devices to obtain more insights about the surrounding environment and optimize your production systems. Usually, your IoT solution needs to be capable of transferring enormous amounts of data to storage or the cloud where the data have to be processed further. Quite often, the processing of the endless streams of data has to be done in real-time so that you can react on the IoT subsystem's state accordingly.

This session will show attendees how to build a Fast Data solution that will receive endless streams from the IoT side and will be capable of processing the streams in real-time using Apache Ignite's cluster resources.

Attendees will learn about data streaming to an Apache Ignite cluster from embedded devices and real-time data processing with Apache Spark.

Smart Agriculture: How to Start in Agriculture IoT

Smart farming is a capital-intensive and hi-tech system of growing food cleanly and sustainable for the masses. It is the application of modern ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) into agriculture.

In IoT-based smart farming, a system is built for monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, etc.) and automating the irrigation system. The farmers can monitor the field conditions from anywhere. IoT-based smart farming is highly efficient when compared with the conventional approach.

Developer Case Study: IoT Product Development at Warp Speed

IoT Product Development at Warp Speed

The design and productization of state-of-the-art electronic products is not easy, taking a well coordinated effort between hardware and software engineering. Making those products internet and cloud connected is even harder. So in this exciting and fast-paced world of IoT, how can companies with small teams, limited budgets, and tight timeframes create innovative and compelling products?

In this seminar, Mr. Demin will discuss the various hardware and software components of IoT products today, and present a methodology for rapid development with minimal engineering resources. As part of this, he will walk through a recent Onion Corporation project: Oboo Smart Clock - an Internet connected smart alarm clock. Oboo was developed in nearly 3 months with a team of just 3 engineers. Now in pre-production, Oboo is scheduled to start shipping to Kickstarter backers in June.
