Industrial Innovation with IoT, enabled by Oracle Fusion Middleware and JD Edwards

clip_image002

IoT drives industrial innovations but also presents various challenges. For example, the lack of standardization and the lack of integration prohibit a lot of businesses from benefiting from this industrial trend. Oracle has a complete IoT platform that answers to those challenges in the following ways:

• Standardized Java platform to develop & deploy applications across devices and applications

• Scalable analytics with Big Data, event processing and Business Intelligence

• Integrate processes between people, applications and devices

• Enable security, compliance and data protection across devices and enterprise data center

Also, with regard to IoT stories, there are a few new customer videos released:

Canon & Bosch & Prosyst & V2COM & Tridium

Sensor Networks with Java (Part I) by Enzo

clip_image002End of last year I've started to build a little Sensor Network that I've placed in my house. I never thought that many people are interested in that but I was wrong, nearly every time I did a presentation about that topic many people asked me for a blog post about the project...and here it is :)
First of all this is not really about a Smart Home or something similar, this is simply a project to monitor data (temperature in my case). The original idea was monitoring multiple cold stores which seems to be something that is really useful :)
But because I didn't had the cold stores I've decided to measure the temperature in nearly every room of our house.
The things I was interested in have been the behavior of the room temperature compared to the temperature outside. Does the temperature in the rooms follow the temperature outside of the house and how fast does it follow. To be able to compare those values I had to measure the conditions outside and in inside of the house.
Well measuring is one thing but you also have to analyze the data right? This means I needed to store the data somewhere and also needed to visualize the data somehow. Because I'm working from home I don't have a big server room where I can put a computer that acts as a server so one other requirement was to use as many embedded devices as possible in the whole setup (means for communication, storage, etc.).
Wife factor
One very important (if not most important) factor in the whole project was what I call the "Wife factor". When I've started with the project I've used hardware like Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoneBlack and Arduino Yun to measure the temperature in different rooms in our house. It worked very nice BUT most of these devices have some kind of status led or I/O led which is blinking all the time. In addition all of those devices needed a power supply which means you have to place them close to a power plug. When my wife saw all these lights blinking and wires lying around she was not very amused.
I figured out that as long as she does not see the so called Sensor Nodes everything is fine.
Size matters
That said one thing was pretty clear, the Sensor Nodes have to be small and they should run on batteries...for months!!! I've tried different hardware like Raspberry Pi, Arduino Yun, Arduino + XBee but all of these approaches did not really work out well.
The biggest problem was the need for a power supply which limited the location I could place the Sensor Nodes. In the end I've took a closer look to the XBee itself which looks like follows... Read the complete article here.

Is Your Organization Prepared for IoT? by Subramanian Iyer


Even as IoT promises significant benefits for companies, it will involve major changes in the way they operate and do business.

clip_image002Apart from the consumer industry, manufacturing, distribution, and healthcare are the industries that are expected to be most impacted by the Internet of Things (IoT). Organizations in these industries will need to reexamine their entire business models, realign their partner strategies, and rework their processes to continue being competitive in the new, IoT-enabled world.

The benefits of IoT include improvements in operating efficiencies, product safety, location tracking, and time to market as well as potential cost reductions in resource usage. In order to leverage the benefits of IoT, organizations need to understand which areas the deployment of IoT is impacting and how they will be impacted, and prepare accordingly.

People

The emergence of IoT requires people to adapt to changing data visualization. Connected devices will provide relevant users an unparalleled view of detailed data. Businesses will be able to predict requirements through the supply chain, and access to equipment efficiency data will mean lesser breakdowns and predictable outputs.

Action item: Upskill people so they can view, track, and analyze issues across multiple channels including their desktops, mobiles, tablets, and consoles.

In order to leverage the benefits of IoT, organizations need to understand which areas the deployment of IoT is impacting and how they will be impacted, and prepare accordingly.

Process

IoT will enable process optimizations like never before. As information flow becomes faster, decisions will be made more quickly, increasing the overall market responsiveness to situations. Environmental conditions will decide production lines in factories and queues for specialized machines in hospitals, streamlining processes to a significant extent.

Action item: Ensure processes and methodologies are constantly upgraded to enable faster decision-making as data and analyses come in faster than ever before.

Technology

Availability of analytical information and data visualization on mobile devices means that enterprise-level optimization activities will be possible from remote locations, allowing for entire supply chains to be made visible point-in-time. Cloud-based solutions will allow for data to be converted into usable information instantaneously, accelerating the agility of organizations.

Action Item: Ensure the enterprise is equipped with modern technology that can send the right information to the right people, wherever they are. Read the complete article here.

IoT and the Modern Value Chain by Gaurav Palta and John Murphy

By implementing modern best practices and architecting a digital, IoT-driven supply chain, organizations will be able to realize a number of benefits.

Today’s modern consumers expect faster and more flexible fulfillment options that provide full visibility into product information, availability, and lead times. With billions of networked devices—from cell phones and laptops to equipment sensors and wearable technology—the opportunities for significant innovation are vast. But so are the possibilities for exposure to risk and inefficiencies. The business battleground is moving, and the value chain is at the forefront of success or failure.

clip_image001

Now, fast forward to 2020, there are 25-plus billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices and a “networked” economy approaching US$2 trillion. According to Bryan Tantzen, senior director of IoT at Cisco, “We have now crossed the chasm and people are waking up to the value at stake. Supply chain managers in particular are leveraging IoT to create a real-time supply chain where line operators take digital orders and integrate them immediately into production runs.”

To take advantage of the increasing deluge of data, commonly referred to as big data, businesses are replacing traditional methods with modern best practices. These practices are more focused on customers, enable faster and more responsive supply networks, inspire more profitable product innovation, and facilitate a more collaborative environment of empowered supply chain professionals.

By implementing modern best practices and architecting a digital, IoT-driven supply chain, organizations will be able to realize a number of benefits:

The business battleground is moving, and the value chain is at the forefront of success or
failure.

Increase focus on customers

As consumer-level information is captured by machine-to-machine communications, businesses can immediately analyze the data in multiple ways to create faster, more reliable, and more accurate forecasts so inventory and production levels are optimized. For example, in the not-so-distant future, sensors will be added to consumable items such as a gallon of milk. Milk producers will go beyond the shelves at retail outlets and into the homes of consumers to determine, in the short term, levels of consumption and, in the long term, patterns of consumption for individuals so they can better manage their supply chains and predict future demand and supply their retailers more efficiently. This level of detail was never before available. Read the complete article here.
