The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that
only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a
lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal
with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc
trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is
mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the
rapid changes and exponential growth.
This talk presents a methodical framework to guide the systematic adoption
and enablement of IoT implementations, composed of the following modules:
Prototype, Extend, Assess, Strategize, Formulate, Accelerate, Initiate, and
Revamp (PEAS FAIR). We will drill down to individual components in each
module. Working examples will be discussed to illustrate the pragmatic use of
this method... (more)
The Business Case for the Internet of Things
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly
enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying
business drivers. This tendency, what some call the "newest shiny object
syndrome," is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily
engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business
cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it,
will fade into obscurity.
Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plen... (more)
Containers and Microservices Create New Performance Challenges
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the
need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large
monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller
agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development,
microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization
and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software
malfunction. The problem is there are... (more)
