0910 - 0915 Welcome - Introduction to OMG

Richard Mark Soley, Chairman & CEO, Object Management Group

0915 - 1015 KEYNOTE: Machine-to-Machine Communications - The Rise of the Machines  DOWNLOAD SLIDES    DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Les Santiago, Research Director, Semiconductors Research, IDC

M2M encompasses communications among intelligent systems and traditional embedded systems alike. Crossing all electronics systems capable of communications, M2M thus presents daunting communications requirements, including for security, power management, reliability, and upgradeability, which all comes before we can discuss the benefits, such as data analytics.

How can the industry meet the challenge of M2M? What is the road-map and how long will it take to implement M2M?

1015- 1030 Morning Refreshments
1030 - 1115 Understanding the Internet of Things Protocols: DDS, MQTT, & AMQP  DOWNLOAD SLIDES    DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Stan Schneider, CEO, Real-Time Innovations (RTI)

The Internet revolutionized how people communicate, what they do, and how they work together. The revolution is not done. The next wave of the Internet will connect machines and devices together into functioning, intelligent systems. These interconnected devices, aka the Internet of Things (IoT), will link machines together with speeds, scales, and capabilities far beyond what people need or use. The IoT of intelligent connected devices will change the world, perhaps more profoundly than today's human-centric Internet.

However, figuring out where your application fits into the maze of technologies is truly confusing. This webinar will decode the machine-to-machine (M2M) technology jumble. When does DDS (Data Distribution Service) make sense? How does it compare to MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport)? To the AMQP (Advance Message Queuing Protocol)? To the cloud? These technologies differ drastically; we'll provide a guide to help you navigate.

We will then explore some of the applications and reasons that high-performance integrated device systems are choosing DDS, the Object Management Group (OMG) standard for Data Distribution Service middleware.

Attendees will learn why DDS is the only technology that delivers the flexibility, reliability, and speed necessary to build complex real-time applications. We will examine why military systems, wind-turbine farms, advanced medical systems, asset-tracking systems and automotive test and safety systems choose to base their designs on DDS.

1120 - 1200 Case Studies: Building the Internet of Things with DDS  DOWNLOAD SLIDES    DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Angelo Corsaro, Ph.D. - OpenSplice DDS CTO, PrismTech

Starting from some concrete use cases in Smart Cities, Smart Energy and Transportation, this presentation will crystalize the key requirements of Internet of Things Applications with respect to data sharing. Then, it will show why DDS is the most natural choice for addressing Internet scale efficient, ubiquitous, and real-time data sharing -- The Internet of Things Data Fabric.

1200 - 1330 Lunch Break
1330 - 1415 KEYNOTE: Minds + Machines

Joe Salvo, Manager, Business Integration Technologies, General Electric

For decades, technology has connected people and businesses globally. This is just the start. The Internet will also transform global industries, joining human insight with machine intelligence. Bringing minds and machines together has created something wholly new - the Industrial Internet - an open, global network that connects machines, people, and data.

1415 - 1500 System Assurance and the Internet of Things  DOWNLOAD FILE    DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Ben Calloni, Lockheed Martin Fellow, Lockheed Martin

OMG's System Assurance Task Force has and is continuing to create the System Assurance Ecosystem (a suite of specifications) capable of importing common facts into an OMG repository technology known as Knowledge Discovery Metamodel. This common fact base can capture and standardize all facts about a system, from:
  • DODAF models
  • Structured Assurance Case Metamodels
  • Threat Risk Assessment Models
  • Configuration guides
  • National Vulnerability Database information,
  • Down to the software implementations in UML and / or source code

Information contained in the Common Fact Model can then be queried to produce tailored assurance reports as needed by program certifiers. This presentation will outline the process, technologies and standards applicable to any field where rigorous assurances (safety, security, medical devices, etc.) need to be defined, captured, and quantified.

1500 - 1515 Afternoon Refreshments
1515 - 1600 The OMG Software Assurance Ecosystem: Applying Methodical Analysis to Trusted Software  DOWNLOAD SLIDES    DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Nikolai Mansourov, CTO, KDM Analytics

The System Assurance Task Force's Software Assurance (SwA) Ecosystem is about providing quantified assurance to a number of domains such as safety, security, medical equipment, and consumer devices. In the security domain quantifying risk for a certifier has traditionally focused on

  • Executing one or more Static Code Analysis tools,
  • Checking that IT equipment is configured via Security Technical
  • Implementation Guide (STIG's)
  • Performing penetration testing.

Certainly these activities provide valuable data to the stakeholder in helping to quantify residual risk. However to the system architect, system engineer and software engineers that have to build and certify large systems, these traditional "IT approaches" do not provide the necessary rigor. This study will describe a systematic analysis and findings of Wireshark, an open source product, utilizing tools that conform existing and in-work specifications of the SwA Ecosystem.

1600 - 1645 Taming the Diverse Environment of the Internet of Things  DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Nina Tucker, Twin Oaks Computing

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a diverse, and rapidly growing, environment of technologies, hardware devices, and networks. Current estimates place the number of connected devices at ~ 9 billion, and this is expected to become 30 billion or more by 2020. The wide assortment of these devices, from computers, tablets, and phones to consumer electronics and appliances, to sensors and actuators presents challenges to the software developer.

This presentation will discuss how the standardized communications offered by DDS makes distributed software development easier, allowing you to bring your solutions to market faster. We will present real world examples of how DDS is deployed into devices recently connected to the Internet of Things.

1645 - 1700 Panel: Overcoming Challenges, Creating Opportunities  DOWNLOAD AUDIO

Some time during 2008 the number of individual devices communicating using the Internet exceeded the number of people on the planet, and the numbers continue to grow exponentially. It's estimated that by 2020 there could be as many as 50 billion uniquely-addressable networked devices around the world. They won't just be computers, or tablets - or even smart phones.

Instead, huge numbers of wireless sensors and actuators in industrial machinery, vehicles, domestic appliances or even attached to our bodies will dominate this coming "Internet of Things".

Join our speakers for a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities posed by this explosion in the scale and ubiquity of Machine to Machine (M2M) communication. This technology will enable an exciting range of new applications by connecting machines, people and data in entirely new ways. However, it will also bring new technical challenges, such as burgeoning data volumes and the need to assure that complex, constantly-adapting assemblies performing life-critical tasks do so predictably, safely and reliably.
