Using Agile Integration for IoT

Using Agile Integration for IoT

In architecting end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, one of the biggest challenges is how to integrate IoT data with data streams from enterprise systems and external sources. Traditionally, businesses have used an enterprise service bus (ESB) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) to integrate and connect different systems and applications. However, this integration approach, due to its complexity and time-consuming implementation cycle, is not suitable for the rapidly moving needs of digital business imperatives like IoT. Given IoT’s adaptive nature, agile integration should be considered.

Visualizing Smog Sensor Data with the help of Vert.x, Prometheus, and Grafana

Visualizing Smog Sensor Data with the help of Vert.x, Prometheus, and Grafana

Air pollution is a major problem in many cities around the globe. Some people in Stuttgart, Germany have developed cheap smog sensors that people can install on their balconies and other convenient places and then report data to a central site. I have written about that on OpenSource.com. The data is sent to a central server, from where it is visualized on a map. At the time of writing the above article, there was no way of seeing how the value has changed over time. Meanwhile, there is a visualization of the last 24 hours available on the map.

Building Containerized IoT solutions on OpenShift Lab

Building Containerized IoT solutions on OpenShift Lab

As technology continues to disrupt the industries beyond the first wave (led by Netflix, Amazon, Uber etc.), the enterprises are embracing digital transformation to meet the challenge. One of the key technologies enabling digital transformation is Containers through its inherent advantages with packaging (Atomic, built for CI/CD), collaboration and runtime (lightweight, distributable, portable).

At the Red Hat Summit in Boston, Andrew Block and I conducted a hands-on lab on how to build a containerized intelligent Internet-of-Things (IoT) gateway on Red Hat OpenShift. The application is deployed as a set of microservices inside containers on the containerize IoT workload using microservices running on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Building a Secure IoT Solution: Summit 2017

Building a Secure IoT Solution: Summit 2017

How do customers build an end-to-end IoT solution using commercial grade, open source products? This is the question we (Patrick Steiner, Maggie Hu and I) wanted to address with our session at the Red Hat Summit, Boston. The end-to-end solution is based on three-tier Enterprise IoT Architecture, which integrates IoT data with existing business processes and the human element.

Brief Interview with James Kirkland about IoT

Everyware Software Framework (ESF) 5.0

Everyware Software Framework (ESF) 5.0

Last week, our IoT partner, Eurotech, announced some important milestones–the availability of their Everyware Software Framework (ESF) 5.0 and a preview of a new version of their Everyware Cloud 4.2. These milestones are important examples of open source IoT innovation, through both Eurotech’s commercial offerings and the upstream open source communities that contribute to them.
