Two #IoTChat events this Wednesday Sep 10!

IoTChat Sep 10 with IBMIn the same way that the number of devices connected to the internet is increasing with Internet of Things, the discussions of IoT are likewise proliferating! 

This week, there are two #IoTChats!  On our weekly #IoTChat (Wednesdays 11am PT / 2pm ET) we’ll be joined by Internet of Things World Forum Platinum Sponsor IBM for a discussion of how data storage and management are changing with #IoT.

Cisco has a solution we call ‘data in Motion” which is basically a way to describe the devices coming online that are fast-moving.  If you think about it, the data created by a fast-moving device has a few hurdles to overcome.  There may be a lot of data created that may not all be relevant to transmit.  Also, for fast-moving devices, the data created often has a very short useful lifespan. So you need to have a good way to analyze that data and determine what should be transmitted, what should be kept, and what discarded. I think it’ll be a fun hour of discussion with your weekly host @Cisco_IoT and special co-host @IBM_Informix!

Tweetchat-September-(IoT)LATESTAlso, earlier in the day, @IBM_Informix is holding a special edition of #IoTChat, “How Data Will Power the Internet of Things” with Gary Barnett (@thinkovation), chief analyst at Ovum.  you can read all about it in their blog post on the chat.

Hope to see you at one or both of these fantastic events!

Join Us for #IoTChat on Wednesday 11am PT!

IoTChat Aug 13Last week we kicked off our first #IoTChat!  The topic was also the theme for this year’s Internet of Things World Forum, and the overall theme we’ll be embracing for this quarter: IoT is Here, IoT is Now with the implied: (and what does that mean?)

Here are three simple steps to join tomorrow’s #IoTChat:

  1. Follow the hashtag #IoTChat
  2. Introduce yourself when you join
  3. Respond to a question number starting with its answer number  [For example if you're responding to Q1, start your tweet with A1]

And dive in when you have something to say -- we’re all friendly!  This week we’ll be discussing the concept of the “Killer App” -- what does this mean for IoT?

Below, a few of the highlights from #IoTChat week 1 (I may have gone overboard with ‘highlight’): Read More »

New IoT Tweet Chat Series Starting Wednesday 11am PT #IoTChat

IoTChat July 30As we gear up for the Internet of Things World Forum in October, it seems like a good time to start a discussion with the broader IoT community.  The goal of this series is to have a focused weekly discussion on a topic relevant to Internet of Things.  Since the theme of the IoT World Forum is “IoT is Here, IoT is Now” we’re using that as an initial theme for the chat series for the next few months.

The Tweet Chat will be run by @Cisco_IoT with the hashtag #IoTChat (creative, right?) the goal is to make this a community discussion (i.e. not Cisco-focused).  We’ll have 6-10 questions (time permitting) and request that people answer Q(number) with A(number). Read More »
