Experts predict that the Internet of Things will
disrupt entire industries and instigate sweeping changes in the way
of doing business for years to come. And while there are enormous
benefits in efficiency and economy, these benefits can only be
achieved by overcoming challenges that range from the need for a new
distributed computing architecture to security and privacy risks.
While the need for standards and better protocols for
machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and data sharing is clear,
the need to address these other challenges is now coming into focus.
At the December 2016 event, we will explore in particular the
challenges and success stories in the energy industry. This
is a domain that touches our everyday lives and billions of dollars
in revenue, is inherently networked (especially in the case of the electric
smart grid) and involves critical national infrastructures.
Object Management Group® (OMG®) has been active in
IIoT standardization from long before
"IIoT" became an industry buzzword. Many OMG standards are
proving integral to IIoT efforts around the globe; DDS™ (Data
Distribution Service™), SysML® (Systems Modeling Language™)
and IFML™ (Interaction Flow Modeling Language™) are contributing
to the improved productivity, major cost savings, and streamlined
processes of the Industrial Internet.
OMG's Middleware and Related Services (MARS) Task Force continues to
evolve specifications for the DDS, a
publish-and-subscribe protocol with quality of service controls that
is uniquely suited to the Industrial Internet.OMG's Systems Assurance Task Force (SysA TF) works on standards that
ensure the reliability, safety and security of IIoT systems to help
the Industrial Internet of Things deliver on its promise without
succumbing to the threats it faces. In addition, the OMG-managed
Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™) specifies how to
measure quality points including reliability and security that are
vital to the systems and processes of the Industrial Internet.
During this half-day public forum, industry leaders and OMG task
force chairs will come together to discuss the latest trends, present case studies and join together in a panel
discussion. Please join us at this complimentary event followed by
an evening cocktail reception where you can network with the
speakers and panelists.
