Scaling Data Science for the Industrial Internet – Advanced Analytics in Real Time

One estimate holds that, by 2020, businesses involved with the Internet of Things will spend roughly 26% of their entire IoT cost on technologies and services that store, integrate, visualize, and analyze data from various IoT devices—or nearly twice what IoT companies spend today. Conventional techniques for extracting and evaluating IoT data need to get a lot smarter if companies are to keep pace with the phenomena they’re tracking. In this ebook, author Andy Oram discusses the state of IoT analytics by examining ThingWorx and its partners Glassbeam and National Instruments—companies that provide development tools and capabilities for building and running IoT applications. By learning how to use modern techniques to automate and speed up analytics on IoT projects, you can gain an edge in security, customer satisfaction, and operational efficiencies.

  • Understand the demands of IoT analytics by exploring examples of farm, factory, vehicle maintenance, and healthcare automation
  • Explore the characteristics of predictive analytics, a realm where you don’t know in advance which factors are relevant
  • Examine the tools for IoT analytics used by companies at various levels of data analytics
  • Get revealing case studies of IoT analytics from ThingWorx, Glassbeam, and National Instruments

Protecting Smart Devices and Applications Throughout the IoT Ecosystem

IoT security presents unique challenges to every party involved in the process – from device manufacturers and product development managers to application developers and end users. The top challenges to effective IoT security are directly related to the benefits of the IoT itself: the lack of human intervention needed for thousands of smart, connected devices to operate and the variety of devices that can be connected. This new whitepaper by Rob Black, CISSP, Senior Director of Product Management at PTC, addresses IoT security best practices at the device and application level, such as:

  • Data and network traffic encryption
  • Audit trails
  • Granular permissions and visibility
  • Secure software development life cycle (SDLC)

The CEO of a major telecom company thinks it’s closer to 50 billion connected devices by 2020. In a new report from O’Reilly Media, you can learn about the requirements needed to connect networked devices – from prototyping to scaling IoT for the enterprise. Download the report now and you will learn:

  • The unique security challenge for connected devices in the IoT
  • The difference between local devices, devices on the edge of the IoT, and devices in the cloud
  • How to prototype and what is needed to plan for scale
  • What to consider when designing the prototype, such as its physical environment
  • How to address the key life-cycle activities of a connected device
