Bitreactive

Bitreactive is the answer to todays shortage in developers needed for making the estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet of Things, IoT, in 2020 a reality. The Reactive Blocks developer tool makes programming embedded software for devices possible for any Java developer through abstract visual design rather than writing code. Bitreactive is an IoT startup based in Norway. Our revolutionary Java based developer tool Reactive Blocks allows for efficient and robust development of reactive or event driven systems for IoT/M2M or other embedded systems. It solves hard problems for developers like concurrency (e.g. handling simultaneous incoming events), leveraging multi-core CPU capabilities effortlessly, reusing code or just understanding and debugging code. Reactive Blocks is available for free download.

Finding and Fixing Blind Spots in Enterprise IoT Security

Article | March 20, 2020

The Internet of Things has been a breakthrough, and adoption rates keep exploding. There are possibly over 20 billion IoT devices in the world, and by 2025, there may have been 75 billion. Even though there has been a rise in smart home devices, most IoT devices are found in businesses, industries, and healthcare. The benefits are overwhelming: from enabling automation of repetitive tasks (both simple and complex), to real-time data insights and analytics, IoT devices make workers more productive, improve customer experience, and reduce operating costs. However, with the many benefits of IoT devices come serious disadvantages, chief of which is security. Here are some reasons why IoT devices have such serious security risks:

An Introduction to IoT Sensors

Article | March 20, 2020

This post will cover various important sensors that are possibilities for an IoT deployment. Sensors are the backbone of any IoT deployment. They gather information and provide software with sensory information it needs to achieve its full potential. In addition, this post will go over considerations and decision-making for selecting sensors in an IoT deployment. Often times, a single sensor is not the best implementation, a suite of sensors can gather more data and even affect behavior for other sensors. In many cases, more than one sensor is necessary to perform the IoT deployment’s function. Sensors are just as critical to every IoT application as the internet. Imagine Alexa or Google Home without a microphone: it wouldn’t work. People wouldn’t be able to interact with the device, or it would need some other kind of sensor such as a keyboard to obtain input from a user.

How Big Data and IoT Are Connected

Article | March 20, 2020

Big data as a term and a field, has been around for some time. It relates to the ways in which we study, analyze and process data sets that are too large to be handled by traditional data-processing software. Data can be described as ‘big’ when it demonstrates the four ‘V’ qualities: veracity (accuracy), velocity (speed), volume (size) and variety (both structured and unstructured). IoT, on the other hand, came much later and relates to devices, data and marrying them together. This area looks at making devices ‘smart’ (anything from watches to kettles) and collecting data about their performance or usage to influence consumer behavior.
