The Internet of Things Will Be Huge, Is Your IT Infrastructure Ready to Support It? by Harish Venkat


clip_image002IDC predicts that the worldwide IoT market will grow from $1.3 trillion in 2013 to $3.04 trillion in 2020 (1). IDC also states that within three years, 50% of IT networks will transition from having excess capacity to handle the additional IoT devices to being network constrained. (2)
As further evidence, analyst firm 451 Research reported an increase in M&A spending in 2014 that pushed 'Internet of Things'-related deal-making past the $14bn mark, a fortyfold increase in acquirer spending compared to 2013. (3)
This rate of growth cannot be ignored. IoT is inevitable and will create tremendous opportunity for a new wave of services built around connected devices. It will also pose challenges to IT and infrastructure leaders for the following reasons:

  • The volume of data that will come off devices will be enormous and capable of completely overwhelming network infrastructures.
  • IT infrastructures will need to support these vast amounts of data.
  • Solutions that aren’t fully integrated will fail to deliver needed data and analytic capabilities. All devices will need to be integrated with all other devices, so seamless integration of applications and technologies will be critical.
  • Realizing business value from IoT will be dependent upon scalable and flexible infrastructures that can integrate and secure data received from various components and devices.

How can you prepare? A good first step is to modernize IT infrastructures and upgrade legacy architectures. As is the case with other technology trends like mobile, big data, and social, IT needs to be agile and strongly aligned with the business. This means anticipating and responding to business needs quickly, providing real-time information that informs decision-making, and being scalable to support planned and unplanned growth.

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:

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.

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.

Platform for Efficiency: Boeing Defense, Space & Security integrates supply chain processes using Oracle Business Process Management solutions. by Fred Sandsmark

Like most companies, aerospace giant Boeing has its jargon - words and phrases that uniquely define its products and processes. Take the word platform. It is used at Boeing to mean a family of aircraft - the F/A-18 fighter, for example, or the 777 jetliner.

Boeing Defense, Space & Security Energy Alloys since August 2009, employees in the Global Services & Support (GS&S) division of Boeing Defense, Space & Security have been talking about a different sort of platform: a supply chain technology platform, based on Oracle Business Process Management (Oracle BPM) solutions and Oracle SOA Suite. That platform, built with the assistance of Oracle Diamond Partner Capgemini, is serving as a jumping-off point for Boeing's GS&S staff to deploy radically improved business processes supported by Oracle Fusion Applications to build a high-visibility, end-to-end supply chain. This business process-driven technology platform has ambitious goals: to help GS&S respond more quickly and accurately to its customers' needs, to make business processes at all GS&S sites more consistent and less expensive, and to create a foundation for further improvement and efficiency.
