In 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!
Also, 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!
