Choosing the right IoT architectural pattern
One of the key driver and enabler for the Enterprise Digital Transformation is Industrial Internet of Things. Whether it be the factory of the future where a digital footprint of the factory can track and detect key machine functions, and proactively detect faults; hospitals where machines can effectively collect and analyze data for better patient outcomes.
The reality for enterprises is that many of these processes have some level of technology, such as SCADA systems in the manufacturing sector, but the systems are closed, hard to extend, hard to integrate, and expensive to maintain.
IoT is transforming the industry with open standards and tools, commodity hardware, large developer community making “connecting all things” a reality. This model is easily adopted by consumer IoT, such as home security systems, consumer tools, and gadgets. Industrial IoT presents complexity that is far more dynamics. This includes multiple existing legacy technologies, existing integrations, different types of enterprise scenarios. Two architecture patterns are emerging for development of Industrial IoT systems. One is based on web services stack, and the other based on OMG Industrial IoT standards.
So how do CIO’s and technology leaders decide what technology stack and patterns to adopt? This session will discuss categories of Industrial IoT, and how and which architectural patterns address those categories. It will give a clear path for CIO’s and technology leaders on when to adopt what pattern, how they work together and make solid decisions based on the business needs of the enterprise’s digital transformation.
