A Brave New Connected World for Applications

The Internet of Things has continued to grow at a pace that suggests a staying power beyond a simple buzzword. It permeates nearly every industry across the globe, both industrial and consumer, and although the complexity varies from application to application, the technology has allowed us to rethink the way we live into the future. However, as fun as it is to don the seer's cap and predict all of the wonderful ways connected technology will change our lives, the development of the "back end" of the Internet of Things is proving to be a formidable component in the quest for growth.

As our devices continue to increase in connective capability, the amount of data being transferred every second will continue to grow as well. As the flow of data expands, the mobile and web applications through which the data runs will need to be able to incorporate not only greater amounts, but different kinds of data as well. Many systems are now utilizing location-based data for applications like beacons, tracking, services, etc. This has brought about the next generation of applications.

For the applications that have to-date seen the greatest usage, there is just too much data for them; they're old school; they can't handle that kind of data. They're used to handling one order a day from a person. Take a phone bill, it's just sending a hundred calls a day, that's a lot different than what Google is doing when they're tracking your location and suggesting restaurants, they're handling thousands of data points from each person a day. The order of magnitude is so much higher, so IoT-oriented companies today need to know how to not only do the new stuff, but to hook it to the old stuff, and build the back end that will support this new Internet of Things.

All your appliances, your thermostat, your fire alarms, your doors, your garage door opener, your power grid, your iron, whatever those things are, they're all going to be hooked up, in this connected world. Then you take that to the commercial space: every single street light, every single truck, every single thing will be hooked up. And then you'll be able to connect all those things together and build more intelligent systems. To be able to effectively deploy scarce resources, where it matters the most, and a good place to look at this is farmers are using drones to survey their land to tell soil moisture and fertilizer density. They don't want to spray the same amount of water and fertilizer everywhere, that's very expensive.

The use-cases for IoT technology are expansive. And they should be. But what we see today is a need for those companies that have traditionally built simple function applications, and companies entering the space, to understand the scope of needs that accompany a connected application. Location data, user data and predictive analytics are driving forces behind the Internet of Things for consumers and especially on the industrial side as well. Ensuring that the nuts and bolts of these projects are built for the next generation of needs is the clear need for IoT technology moving forward.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
