Key Challenge Panel: Effective Integration of IT & OT in IoT Deployments
  • Stephen DiFranco - Principal, IoT Advisory Group
  • JoAnna Sohovich - CEO, The Chamberlain Group
  • Dave Rauch - Senior Vice President, Worldwide Manufacturing Operations, Western Digital
  • Tony Shakib - General Manager, Internet of Things and Intelligent Cloud, Microsoft
  • Philippe Fremont - Vice President of IoT, Europe, Avnet
  • Aleksander Poniewierski - Partner/Global IoT Leader, EY

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.

Presentation:Zen and the Art of Predictive Maintenance
  • Gabe Weiss - Developer Advocate, Google

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.

Presentation:Embedded Systems Development Using Modern Software Practices
  • Kimberly Clavin - VP of Engineering, LOOP by Pillar

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.

Presentation: Build Complex Things, Simply
  • Ming Zhang - Co-founder and CEO, zGlue

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.

Presentation: Developer Case Study: IoT Product Development at Warp Speed
  • Lazar Demin - CTO, Onion Corporation

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.

IoT Connectivity
Panel: Making decisions: Which direction is best when choosing between connectivity options?
  • Do Carriers need to choose one technology to deploy to meet the NB-IoT applications?  Can they offer multiple connectivity options?
  • For users, are 5G and LPWAM mutually exclusive? IoT covers a broad spectrum of applications.
  • Is it possible for one form of connectivity technology to fit all the specific needs of an IoT solution/device?

AI & Machine Learning
Panel: Moving past the hype: What is actually happening with companies utilizing AI in an IoT World?
  • How successfully has generated data been absorbed and turned into better company management, better resource management, created profit areas, etc?
  • Has the investment been worth the cost and effort? If not, how do we turn this around?
  • This isn't a 'one size fits all' kind of solution.  What industries have been most successful in adopting AI and ML to manage their IoT information?  Why?  Is it repeatable for industries that haven't been as successful?
