Presentation: Devising your Data Movement Strategy for IoT


11:50am - 12:40pm


While there are many ways to manage the movement of real-time information between connected “things” and your enterprise systems, taking advantage of the open standards and tools at your disposal will give you the richest functionality and most flexibility. This presentation will cover relevant system requirements, and discuss protocol needs at the Fog, Edge and Core layers of an IoT solution. We’ll delve into real-world examples (like smart city and industrial IoT) to show how protocols and techniques like REST, MQTT, AMQP and JMS can be combined to link devices and applications across your cloud, fog, edge and on-premise systems.
