Introduction to Edge Computing in IIoT

whitePaper | June 18, 2018

This white paper provides practical guidance on edge computing, architectures and the building blocks necessary for an edge computing implementation. It defines edge computing architectural functions and highlights key use case considerations Consequently, there is a need to identify: where the edge is, its defining characteristics, key drivers for implementing edge computing and why compute capabilities should be deployed at the edge in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems.

Cross-Cutting Business Models for IoT

whitePaper | February 14, 2018

The study Cross-cutting Business Models for the Internet of Things focuses on identifying promising areas for cross-cutting Internet of Things (IoT) activities and their corresponding business models. Market- and technology-related success factors and barriers, as well as the social impact of IoT, are analysed. Based on the findings of the study, policy recommendations that will support the European Commission in fostering the growth of IoT in Europe have been made.

The Integrated Middleware Framework for Heterogeneous Internet of Things (IoT)

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The rise of Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is ingredient for transforming and automating our lives and society around us. A key enabler in accessing Internet of Things (IoT) resources as service end points is the M2M Application Programming Interface (API). The M2M API provides the means for the device to expose its capabilities and the services it may offer, so that remote machines may utilize them. Consequently, such APIs are necessary to enable proactive and transparent communication of devices, in order to invoke actions in IoT devices and receive the relating responses. The main idea of IoT is to expand the network extending it into homes, offices, building, cities. This leads to requirement of loosely coupling, reusability, scalability along with integrity. Now, in the era of smart object, service oriented methodology is providing efficient solutions. This paper will describe our journey to develop IoT framework starting from M2M APIs towards scalable service oriented architecture that leverages various opportunities to develop various applications using the same. The paper discusses about intrinsic characteristics of IoT with requirements of M2M APIs for IoT framework. It also talks about our M2M communication protocol stack prototype. It explains about how legacy M2M APIs are used in the IoT framework and their importance. This also explains about role of RESTful web services in service oriented framework along with challenges of creating IoT applications. It also discusses about our approach towards development of service oriented IoT framework.

A Database Platform for the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

We think of the Internet of Things (IOT) as new and dramatic. And indeed, no doubt its impact will soon be dramatic, but it is not as new as many people suppose. In respect to consumerfacing technology, we can trace the IOT back to the invention of ATMs in the late 1960s, nearly 50 year ago. True, we are pushing the definition of IOT here. The first ATMs were not connected, and their connected use only became widespread in the 1980s – and even then, although it was a connected device, it initially only qualified as an Intranet of Things. Other such early applications included control systems in semi-automated factories. Sensors were placed at key points on production lines and would monitor activity in order to optimize the speed of the production line. These were the first real-time systems, and they were also implemented in chemical plants and oil refineries. RFID tags also emerged sooner than one might imagine, invented in 1973 and deployed in limited applications soon afterwards. They too became part of the early IOT.

Why Enterprise CPQ Implementations Fail

whitePaper | July 23, 2018

You’ve reached a certain point in the evolution of your company and you know it’s time to invest in a CPQ system. But buyer beware: There’s a certain misconception around CPQ systems as being plug-in devices or turnkey-ready overlays of your existing infrastructure, or a simple app you sign up for and that’s it. Yes—the best ones do not require heavy IT resources to get them up and running. But even the best ones require certain things to happen to make their implementation and rollout successful, and most companies, despite the best-laid plans, usually get torpedoed by one of the following issues.
