Episode 24

In the Internet of Things there are generally three classes of analytics performed: real-time analytics done of the fly alerting you to anomalies; predictive analytics performed as a post process yielding a prediction and confidence level and descriptive analytics that reports on past, present or future data with visualizations that often result in the biggest insights.

To quote Mark Andreessen, “Software is eating the world” in industry after industry and it’s no different in ours. Old school SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) hardware is being consumed by Internet of Things software. Often people ask, “What’s the difference between M2M and IoT?” Besides the scope of the networks – M2M lives on a local area network or no network while IoT lives on a wide area network – the other major difference is SCADA consists of proprietary hardware like programmable logic controllers whereas the heart of IoT is software.

MCU architectures come in so many flavors that there will be a peripheral set to match any sensor you choose. Real decision making at the embedded chipset level is driven by the application. You choose hardware based on its capability to support software. The characteristics of your chipset’s memory, computing power and comms will come from answering a 101 questions, all answered by your IoT application’s requirements.

Column-based versus row-based, SQL versus NoSQL and streaming versus batch are three of the most important dimensions to consider choosing your IoT database. But let’s get something clear, databases are two levels of indirection beyond what’s truly important: the IoT information you require. Databases support analytics support information. Having said that, the informed business manager on databases will ask the right questions and set the right priorities during ideation of the IoT product.

Episode 22

How much IoT data should you keep? It’s not clear. The more data you keep, the more data transmission and storage costs you’ll incur. However thinning out your data store means throwing away potential future insights, potential answers to future questions and potential new information products to expand your business – all value generators unique to IoT products.

All incremental value from an IoT product comes from its virtualized representation, what I call the software-define product (SDP). Broaden this concept and you have software-defined manufacturing (SDM) which is the superset of all SDPs it produces. Abstracted, a factory is just a highly complex product so incorporating and advancing it with the Internet of Things is the future.

Episode 21

On the surface, building your own IoT cloud seems pretty straightforward, but brush away some of the fluff and you’ll find the non-trivial issues of data velocity, message processing, scalability, redundancy and robustness.

In addition to the technical considerations and price, compare the development support system in place for each manufacturer when shopping for your embedded wireless solution. How mature is the software development kit (SDK) and hardware platform? How broad is the ecosystem of development partners and is there an online forum or will you get 1:1 attention?

Episode 20

To go beyond connectivity, the IoT Platform must abstract all components of the Internet of Things product or environment into a form that can be computed and interfaced with the app, model and analytics. I call this the software-defined product, or in the case of home automation, the software-defined home.
