Canon Delivers on Internet of Things with Oracle SOA Suite

Canon delivers on performance of a distributed network of millions of imaging systems with a new and much improved system architecture based on Oracle SOA Suite. The engineered systems advantage of leveraging Oracle SOA Suite on Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Exadata Database Machine has delivered on unparalleled scale, speed and simplicity. The new architecture dramatically improved time to process  an event from ½ second to 50 ms, improved throughput 4X to connect 50 million devices.

In this video testimonial, Greg Ryan, Senior Marketing Director, Canon Information and Imaging Solutions talks to us about the scale of this solution and how Oracle has delivered on the promise of Fast Data - delivering value on large volumes of events in real-time. This solution has formed the basis of Canon's Internet of Things strategy as they look to connect more devices to this network, as the millions of devices currently connected are just a fraction of what Canon is looking to manage.

Greg Ryan elucidates in this video testimonial how Canon's Imageware Remote Diagnostic System collects events from the installed base of multi-function printers (MFPs) to deliver on real-time actionable insight. Here are additional resources if you are interested in finding out more on the products that were used under the covers to deliver this solution:

Distributed Intelligence in IoT Deployments

The term Internet of Things or IoT brings to mind a futuristic H.G. Wells world where machines slowly begin to take over the world. Join Jai Suri, Director of Product Management for the Java Platform at Oracle as he delves into possibilities of this new reality with Demed L'her, VP of Product Management of Oracle SOA Suite. Dive into bridging the gap between devices and enterprise applications. Compare and contrast the differences in scale of data and transactions between the device and enterprise worlds. Join us in understanding the value of distributing processing power throughout the network and into the network edge as massive volumes of data are reduced with filtering and correlation to deliver on value, while optimizing network utilization.

Join Demed as he helps us understand use cases with the two versions of Oracle Event Processing which deliver on IoT – a datacenter version that runs on server class machines, and an embedded Java SE type low footprint device. In addition, geo-spatial capabilities in Oracle Event Processing lends a unique offering for location based geo-fencing that helps Oracle customers draw a pyramid map to detect when devices go in and out of zones.

Lastly, we discover how Oracle is helping reach a newer class of devices even lower than the one we currently operate on, as we capitalize on the new Java 8 launch.
