MAKING SITUATIONAL AWARE IOT WITH TIME-SERIES

A session at IoT Slam® 2016 Second International Internet of Things Conference (Virtual Event)

Tracking appliances, equipment, apps and even people, with sensors enables businesses to learn realtime behavior and make split second decisions. Situational awareness provides minimally, higher OPS efficiency or at best, finding entirely new, disruptive business models. Online companies like Amazon and Facebook have accrued benefits of using connected data to guide their personalized campaigns.

Time relevance in data, particularly in the big data has always been a challenge. If we want self-driving cars to make life critical decisions on our behalf, we want to enable them with realtime “As it is happening” situational awareness. Today’s marketing tools can launch personalized campaigns based on user presence on the web (think – “you may also like…” ads on amazon or up-sell (think in-app purchases in gaming).

Be it traditional power and utilities suppliers or connected devices in your home or nuclear plants striving for industrial automation, they all have one goal in common : Optimize resource consumption and pass the benefits on to the customer. The need is to track in time, ideally in real-time and have smart sensors make situationally aware decisions.

DevOps is no different – Realtime analytics and action is necessary to make operations agile and be predictive in light of evolving patterns like micro-services, containerization, SDNs and continuous integration/deployment

The main challenge with Big data at scale is to make it actionable in the window of relevance. In this presentation, I will share Open Source technologies and Reference solution architectures to make IoT realtime and actionable. At the core we will explore time-series data structures and how to create streaming data analytics vs. the old school batch querying of ETL systems and Big Data Map Reduce jobs. We will also look at Pattern matching and Anomaly detection and custom logic processing on Interesting Events.

In particular for DevOps, we will discuss real time monitoring of OpenStack and Container Orchestration. For IoT sensors, we will touch upon Nuclear Power automation and smart lighting. All these in light of DIY solutions using Open Source robust time-series data platforms.
