    The IoT and a Cloud Implementation

    In this post, I explore a cloud implementation in support of the Internet of Things (IoT), specifically, IBM Internet of Things Foundation Starter (a boilerplate) and other IBM Bluemix services. IBM Bluemix is a fully managed cloud hosted service. I write about the way it works and the resources made available to make it possible to quickly derive value from IoT devices. A good place to discuss a cloud implementation is to discuss the key elements of the IoT.

    IT Security and Data Volume and IoT

    In this post, I explore two additional questions relating to IT and the Internet of Things (IoT): The security implications for IoT and the best way to consolidate, store and analyze the large volumes of data generated by these devices. Last week, I explored some of the broader IT implications of the IoT, specifically, the impact on existing networks as well as standards that are helping to ensure interoperability. I began the series with an introduction to the topic.

    How Does the Internet of Things Impact IT?

    The Internet of Things (IoT) field is so new that technology leaders are now creating the paradigms, conventions and APIs that will be used for large-scale future implementations. In this post, I explore some of the broader IT implications of the IoT, specifically, the impact on existing networks as well as standards that are helping to ensure interoperability.

    What Is the Internet of Things?

    In this post, I begin a multipart series on the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is an idea that is growing rapidly with support by many innovations. It was first coined by Kevin Ashton in the late 1990s when he was working on a global standard system for radio-frequency identification and other sensors.

    Standards for Managing Applications

    This is the final post in a series on the importance of IT standards. In this post, I explore some standards that help to make it possible to monitor and manage applications. These standards can be used directly by developers but often commercial or open-source products are used that employ these standards. This leverages their power to provide interoperability across hardware platforms and software systems.

    Standards for Application Development

    This is the third post in a series on the importance of IT standards. The discussion in the first post was about mainframe standards—both de facto and derived—whereas the focus of the second post was a review of five important organizations that promote IT standards throughout the world. In this post, I explore standards that provide support important to application developers including HTML, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML, as well as the role of programming languages with these standards and their supporting tools.
