Cisco also announced the addition of 35 new members to accelerate the creation of innovative cloud-based services through three fundamental areas -Platforms development of next-generation analytics and big data and cloud services for the Internet of Everything. The company has also optimized its Cisco Intercloud Fabric solution with new security features, support management in clouds and additional hypervisor. These innovations further eliminate the complexity of hybrid cloud providing flexible movement of workloads and maintaining security policies and network environments through public and private cloud.

Cloud services for the Internet of Things

Cisco and its partners offer organizations’ cloud services and next-generation applications through the Cisco Intercloud Marketplace, a global market focused on partners that Cisco plans to open this fall. Developers are going to rely on the Cloud for development environments/test to create and distribute applications in production. Cisco announced its collaboration with various companies developing and delivering business applications such as Apprenda, Active State and Docker for innovative development environments.

Cisco is also expanding its participation in major open source development communities such as Cloud Foundry, OpenShift, and kubernetes, and is now building an integrated suite to help developers design micro-container based services tools.

Organizations are demanding new ways to manage the exponential growth of data and the ability to obtain real-time analysis. To meet this need, Cisco collaborates with leading Big Data solutions such as MapR, Hortonworks, Cloudera and Apache Hadoop community. Working with these partners, Cisco safely extends Hadoop solutions on-premise to the cloud and provide a true hybrid deployment. It is also providing end customers to maintain the same policies, control and security in their Big Data implementations, as well as greater flexibility and an unlimited virtual scalability.

In addition to developing platforms and powerful features of Big Data and analytics necessary to the IEA, Cisco started providing APIs to the development community to ensure functionality control, performance and security from the data center to the device.

As part of this framework, Cisco will expose APIs for application developers to allow network monitoring, performance and security to be delivered from the data center to the device. It will also be offering vital services such as data virtualization, Energywise, and Cisco Exchange Platform Services through Intercloud.

Cisco says that by 2020 there will be over 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. Cisco is working on a number of fronts to turn IoT’s many, many possibilities into reality. Cisco’s strategy to invest in solutions of hybrid data centers, including Intercloud and fog computing to create an optimized IoT infrastructure.

SAP HANA Dresses for Internet of Things and Predictive Analytics

saphana 300x95 SAP HANA Dresses for Internet of Things and Predictive AnalyticsInternet of Things is a new and hot territory today. In last few weeks, Google has demonstrated its interest in the IoT market with project Brillo, a project to connect any device used, not only smartphones, tablets, computers and smartwatch, but also those that are part of everyday life such as home appliances, cars, surveillance systems etc. Cisco also announced the addition of 35 new members and new Intercloud initiative for the Internet of Everything market.

Now, SAP plans to offer companies better tools for big data and the Internet of Things. The latest version of SAP HANA called Service Pack 10 (SPS 10) allows customers to communicate with objects connected to the scale of the business and more efficiently manage large amounts of data. The function of synchronization of remote data, which can synchronize the data between the enterprise and remote sites to the network edge, is one of the most notable innovations in the new version.

Developers can now build IoT Mobile apps and generate large volumes of data that take advantage of the data synchronization distance between the company, and Hana remote locations via the integrated SAP database embedded SQL Anywhere technology. So some data previously scattered in various production areas such as restaurants, and remote locations such as gas stations, vending products, and other sources can be traced, be accessible and re-injected more easily.

This concerns the applications of the Internet of Things, for example, the analysis of data from sensors in the field to better plan preventive maintenance actions that avoid the occurrence of faults. Moreover, the extensive capabilities of integrating Hana data is compatible with the latest Hadoop distribution Cloudera and Hortonworks. Among other remarkable features are the faster data transfer with Spark SQL and the ability to move data between storage tiers.

The opening up to the IoT not only about SAP SQL Anywhere. HANA sees improved other related functions such as streaming data from thousands of sensors in the field and their peaks of transmissions. There is also an architecture IoT layered in which some devices are the gateway and pre-process the events of their area to a deputy before transferring the data to HANA.

Also, SAP expanded language support for the Texanalyse to 32 languages. The SAP HANA text mining now supports SQL syntax. Thus, it will easier for developers to write new applications based on text mining.

SAP has also evolved the analysis capabilities of its software, not just in the core of its Hana platform, but also in its predictive analytics portfolio. For example, version 2.2 of the SAP Predictive Analytics suite has been modified to accommodate large data sets that can be used for predictive modeling.

Its automatic predictive library has been enriched by a large number of algorithms. Other more oriented enhancements such as integration of R model comparison capabilities are also included in the new additions.

In March, IBM announced investment of $ 3 billion to set up a new dedicated business unit for Internet of Things. The new offer is initially aimed at companies with tourism market, logistics, insurance, public services, transport and retail. Samsung also announced the launch of SmartThings Open Cloud and Artik platform, which will help developers create innovative products and services for the IoT using their connected devices.

Kii introduces its Thing Interaction Framework to simplify and speed up Internet of Things development

Internet of Things Kii introduces its Thing Interaction Framework to simplify and speed up Internet of Things developmentKii has announced the availability of its new platform functionality, Thing Interaction Framework, which allows IoT solutions developers to simplify and speed up the development of both business/industrial and consumer-focused IoT solutions. 

An extension of the Kii Cloud, the new framework specifically focuses on common IoT use cases around sensor-cloud-app interactions (like sensor state registration/retrieval, trigger-driven command execution on devices, etc.) and significantly reduces server code that would otherwise be needed to implement them.

This enhancement incorporates a number of best practices involved in implementing interactions between the various moving parts in a typical IoT solution – like devices, services, apps, states, commands, triggers, etc. Thing (sensor/device) manufacturers and mobile app developers can adapt and customize the framework through new and updated SDKs.

“Thing Interaction Framework extends Kii’s commitment to simplify and speed up IoT solution development,” explains Phani Pandrangi, Chief Product Officer at Kii. “With this framework providing most of the server side functionality pre-packaged (yet customizable) for a variety of use cases, our customers can focus on the specifics of their solution and implement complex interactions with mostly client side coding.”

This framework also facilitates interoperability between different IoT solutions. The abstraction provided by the framework exposes clean interfaces to the state data, actions, commands and triggers of sensors/devices, thereby making creation of interoperability logic easier and more modular than ever before.

Thing Interaction Framework is available now to customers, more information at: http://documentation.kii.com/en/guides/thingifsdk/.
