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..
This joint presentation by the Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC) will take a closer look at some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the Industrial Internet of Things.
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 Data Distribution Service (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.
The IIC, founded in 2014, is the global not-for-profit public-private partnership of 250+ member organizations, joining together to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet. Membership includes the world's most innovative companies, bringing together corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers and governments into one community to advance innovation, share best practices and solve the tough challenges ahead in interoperability, security and innovation.
Industry leaders from both the OMG and the IIC will discuss the latest trends, present case studies and join together in a panel discussion. Please join us at this complimentary event.
