The Internet of Things (IoT) is hot. It’s also hard to get your head around given the proliferation of wildly different use cases, types of devices, interconnection mechanisms, and data patterns. What’s more, IoT is also intertwined with all the other big computing trends from clouds to data analysis to DevOps processes. In this session, Red Hat’s Gordon Haff will draw on a wide range of research, in addition to user examples, to help you structure your thinking about and approach to IoT as a technology enabler and a business opportunity. This discussion will include the types of platforms associated with IoT, connectivity characteristics, the intersection with data analytics and social, and a snapshot of current standards work.
