Oracle and Wind River Bring the Enterprise to the Edge

By Amanda Lowe We’ve all seen the predictions on the opportunities that IoT presents to companies in the industrial sector. Regardless of which of the wide-ranging analyst figures you follow, its clear to see that the possibilities are endless. Turning those possibilities into reality starts with bridging the gap between IT and OT. The value of IoT lies in connecting…
How to manage the IoT Analytical lifecycle

How to manage the IoT Analytical lifecycle

Guest Blog by Saurabh Mishra/SAS Since the idea of an “IoT analytical lifecycle,” may be understood in many different ways, let’s start with a definition. Performing analytics at the data center and the cloud is well established practice, and is still quite relevant. With growing numbers of connected devices and availability of computing capabilities at various layers of the network, however,…

By Dave Bennett I spent much of last week in Las Vegas at IoT Evolution. There were several use cases presented that showcased some of the cool innovation going on in IoT. Some of the use cases that stood out to me include: The Weather Company, recently acquired by IBM, has 250,000 weather forecasters worldwide who put sensors in their…
Converging in the Fog

Converging in the Fog

By Mychal McCabe A reasonable person could be forgiven for thinking that the distinction between centralized and distributed computing models is beginning to come to an end, with Fog architectures bringing computation, communication, control and storage tantalizingly close to edge devices. Hype around a handful of technologies is fueling the fire, with each viewed as a phenomena in a distinct…

The project is an open source collaborative effort uniting leaders from across the industry to build a best-in-breed RTOS optimized for resource constrained devices, across multiple architectures. The vision for…

Pushing Lab Cloud Buttons Remotely – The API (with Video)

By Jakob Engblom One nice thing about services hosted in the Cloud is that they can offer API access to functionality from pretty much anywhere and anything. Wind River Helix Lab Cloud is no exception – as we have discussed previously the API is a great way to automate testing and setup in Lab Cloud. To provide a bit more…
Effective Communication of Hardware Designs to Software Designers using the Cloud (with Video)

Effective Communication of Hardware Designs to Software Designers using the Cloud (with Video)

By Jakob Engblom Cloud-based services are great for communication – sending a URL to someone is so much easier than almost all alternative means of getting information in front of colleagues and friends. When we are talking about hardware designs and getting them to software designers, the method most commonly used are still prototype boards. Virtual platforms are also used,…
