Edge-to-Cloud Computing for Next Generation Internet of Things


For decades, a sharp divide was drawn between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). The former is concerned with enabling data-driven business decisions, and the latter is concerned with monitoring and controlling physical processes, from factory floors to ATM machines, to connected vehicles. Only recently has there emerged a data-centric approach to IoT applications that seeks to bridge the gap between the IT and OT universes. The objective is to create a single, unified data plane that extends across the enterprise, from edge devices right into corporate data centers.

This “edge-to-cloud” approach requires a new software stack that emphasizes low latency, high reliability, and flexible data models. Meeting these challenges lets you deliver business insight and superior operations control at break-neck speed, even over the vast, heterogeneous data sets generated by modern intelligent devices. This webinar presents a modern “edge-to-cloud” reference architecture and discusses strategies for building data-centric IoT applications, with Hazelcast as an example technology.
