Keynote Presentation:Can Information Technology Simultaneously Delight the Patient and Physician, Increase Access, Reduce Cost, and Improve Quality?
  • Chris Waugh - VP, Chief Innovation Officer, Sutter Health

The most significant challenge in health care today is the demand to deliver on the quadruple aims of experience, access, quality and cost. Much of the demand falls to physicians and consistently achieving these aims is persistently beyond their reach. The current array of digital health tools available to physicians are inadequate - especially with the accelerating growth in medical knowledge and the amount of health care data doubling every two years. Keeping up with everyday practice demands alone is driving an epidemic of physician burnout. In this session we will focus on ambulatory care and describe digital health solutions designed to deliver on the quadruple aims in a financially sustainable practice where burnout risk is low.

Keynote Presentation: From the Edge to the Cloud: Deploy IoT Applications that Transform Your Business
  • Mark Relph - Head of Business Development – IoT and Emerging Technologies, Amazon Web Services

Building IoT applications that increase operational efficiency and create net-new revenue streams requires the flexibility to collect data, compute, and analyze data in the cloud or wherever it is generated. During this keynote, we will discuss how to run IoT applications seamlessly across the cloud and edge devices so you respond quickly to local events, while still using the cloud for management, analytics, and durable storage. We will also discuss how to add machine learning to your IoT applications using managed cloud services to build and train machine learning models and options to run machine learning inference locally on devices. We will end with several case studies showing how AWS customers are using IoT to build new services and business models, improve products and services, and strengthen the customer experience.

Presentation: Building IoT Cloud Applications at Scale with Microservices
  • Dave Chen - Principle Software Engineer, Workday

Connectivity, big data, and analytics are transforming businesses of all types, and one of the challenges for industrial internet of things is that there are massive amounts of data generated by “things” such as jet engines, wind turbine, sensors and more. This data is only valuable if it can be accessed securely, efficiently and quickly. Often, Industrial companies have very unique requirements that are different from those of other businesses. Engineers need to build systems for security, flexibility and resiliency, not just efficiency and robustness. This presentation will discuss how to leverage microservice design principles and other open source platforms to build an IOT device management solution in a microservice oriented architecture. This gives the cloud visibility to securely manage millions of connected IOT devices at scale.esign Patterns/Architecture Maps for IoT Design patterns are the building blocks of architecture and enable developers and architects to reuse solutions to common problems.

In this session, we will review how several common design patterns for connected things, design patterns for common use cases and design patterns for infrastructure, can speed connected device development.

Presentation: Nirvana for IoT – How do you get there?
  • Rao Kakarlamudi - VP Pre-Sales & Principal Architect, Esgyn
  • Rohit Jain - CTO, Esgyn

Many IoT systems deal with very high speed massive ingestion of real-time or near real-time data. Ideally, you want to do analysis of this real-time or hot data, together with very large historical or cold datasets, coupled with immediate alerting or reporting. If only you could do that on a single platform and thereby: reduce data movement, reduce data transformations, reduce complexity, and of course, reduce cost. This nirvana for IoT would enable well-informed and timely action to be taken, making your IoT solution all the more effective in delivering real business value.

This is possible today! Come find out how we did it.

 This talk will cover two IoT customer use cases and technical aspects of the software stack that made these customer success stories possible.

Presentation: Dev Kits Without Profanity
  • Colin Bay - Chief Research Officer, Thug Design

Pretty much all developers have felt like hurling their laptop through the window or swearing like a sailor while trying to get something done with a new developer kit (or even an old one). It’s time for you to rise up and demand better-quality dev kits. This session will help you to see you’re not alone with the problems you’ve found in dev kits.

And manufacturers, you’ll hear some very practical guidelines about what makes an IoT dev kit and API good or bad. The session will cover the following:

- Product websites with practical facts, not marketing fluff

- What Hello World should really be (hint: not displaying “hello world”)

- Connectors and hardware: flimsy or sturdy?

- Providing code that does something, not trivial examples

- Commenting in sample code

- Verifying after each section so you don’t have to redo 47 steps

- Guide to getting started vs. getting stopped

- Showing the system scheme in a diagram

- Full descriptions for each API call

Companies that want developers to build on their platform or standard will find that their odds go way up as the frustration caused by development kits goes down.
