Location: 118-119
Slides:   1-PDF 

In this talk we will discuss opportunities and challenges of data processing in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). As the uptake of IoT applications increases, practitioners start to document best practices in terms of processing data from IoT sources from constraint devices to smart phones.

Based on reviews of real-world use cases as well as discussions with peers in the domain, we will discuss requirements for IoT data processing platforms including the ability to process the stream of data from IoT devices natively, dealing with the raw data from said devices, the capability to ensure business continuity as well as to enforce security and privacy. Finally, we will dissect a number of IoT applications, such as the case of a manufacturer offering pro-active maintenance, optimisations of waste management as well as streamlining a supply chain.
