Conference: UNLOCKING THE POTENTIAL OF THE INTERNET OF THINGS

Bosnia Agile in cooperation with Cisco Systems, Microsoft, IBM, and HUB387 is unlocking the potential of the Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not a buzzword anymore. This is a key innovation fueling modern businesses. IoT systems are connecting traditional products to a broader ecosystem and are unlocking new innovation streams.  Smart and inexpensive Things are creating opportunities for new business development that were impossible to imagine just few years ago.  And above all, there are dramatic changes in new business models that are creating a connected world. The numbers don’t lie. According to Gartner, approximately 3.9 billion connected things were in use in 2014 and this figure is expected to rise to 25 billion by 2020.  75% of companies are exploring or using IoT in the business in some respects (internally/externally), and there is 36% year to year growth in processing, sensing and communications semiconductor devices. IoT is here to stay, and is changing everything we know about modern business applications. 

Today there are 500K developers contributing to the Internet of Things, expected to grow to 4.5M by 2020 [link].  Almost 29% of Chinese developers are currently developing software for the IoT and 41% plan to start within the next 12 months [Evans Data, 06/01/2014]. Recently, an Eclipse developer survey showed that 33% of developers are engaged with IoT apps and over 50% are in learning and discover mode [link].

Are you ready for IoT disruption?: Ana Seliškar

Digitization is redefining industries. Every business, city and country will become digital. Trends show that by 2020 50 billion devices will be connected. This growth of IoT requires compute and storage close to the end devices for several reasons – data reduction, resiliency, latency and scale. All those can be addressed by fog computing uniquely enabled by Cisco as one of six pillars of Cisco IoT System which provides the technologies and software you need to deploy, accelerate, and innovate in the era of IoT.

IoT across devices with Windows 10 and Azure IoT Suite: Admir Tuzović

More and more, we’re seeing the Internet of Things (IoT) become part of the fabric of business, helping converge an organization’s assets, data and processes with people and business systems. Today, this intersection is allowing enterprises to uncover new opportunities, create new business models and transform their operations – from elevators, to particle accelerators and washing machines – to become truly digital businesses.

Microsoft’s vision is to help companies thrive in this era of IoT, delivering open, scalable platforms and services that any company, whether startup or the most established global enterprises, can use to create new value, right now. We have made huge investments in the Windows 10 IoT operating system for devices, and equally with the Azure IoT Suite, we’re bringing together a variety of Azure services to help our customers accelerate their transformation to digital businesses.

The Azure IoT Suite is an integrated offering that takes advantage of all the relevant Azure capabilities to connect devices and other assets (i.e. “things”), capture the diverse and voluminous data they generate, integrate and orchestrate the flow of that data, and manage, analyze and present it as usable information to the people who need it to make better decisions as well as intelligently automate operations. The offering, while customizable to fit the unique needs of organizations, will also provide finished applications to speed deployment of common scenarios we see across many industries, such as remote monitoring, asset management and predictive maintenance, while providing the ability to grow and scale solutions to millions of “things.”

Internet of Things Workbench: Fariz Saračević

Internet of Things provides new opportunities to improve customer experience and offer new services. This session will share details about a new Rapid Application Development (RAD) service offered by IBM, called IBM Internet of Things Workbench. This is a visual application, offered as an IBM Bluemix service that allows engineers to design the overall architecture and interactions between the various IoT entities such as devices, cloud applications and services, mobile clients and asset management systems. IoT Workbench abstracts the messaging details and generates code skeletons for the cloud applications as well as for simulating devices.

The cloud applications are automatically deployed on the cloud environment and leverage the IBM IoT platform for secure connectivity and potentially connecting other services such as machine condition monitoring and geo tracking. This service is unique from other IoT offerings in the sense that it focuses on the design domain rather than being an operational service, while on the other hand it is focused on the operational environment as opposed to generic design tools that need to be adapted for specific domains.
