Tapping into the Internet of Things at Data Summit 2022

As sensor technology becomes more affordable, companies of all sizes will have the ability to embrace IoT strategies to build innovative products and services and establish new revenue streams. Yet, as with any promising technology, challenges remain.

At Data Summit 2022, Paul Scott-Murphy, CTO, WANdisco discussed “Solving the IoT Data Management Puzzle With Gateways to the Cloud.”

To reap the full value of IoT devices, companies need to migrate petabytes of IoT data quickly and securely to the cloud.

As organizations across industries explore IoT offerings to strengthen consumer experiences and build new revenue streams, they must first understand its unique data management and orchestration challenges.

IoT growth is the fastest generator of new information in the world today, Scott-Murphy explained. Modern systems such as MRI machines or cell phones are generating these vast volumes of data.

Edge to Cloud deals with how you move data at scale and it can increase productivity and efficiency of business operations. This system can also understand usage to improve customer experience, he said.

In order to activate and realize the potential value of this data, enterprises need to use edge computing and cloud computing together. These technologies are complementary, not a replacement for one another.

Edge computing is used for real-time applications with low latency requirements, as well as additional processing on the data to further filter and process the raw data.

The big data applications that need to perform advanced analytics, AI, and ML is best accomplished in the cloud.

And, WANdisco Edge to Cloud is a solution for moving the massive amounts of IoT data from edge to cloud.

WANdisco Edge to Cloud automates movement and activation of IoT and file data at scale across edge systems, data centers and all public clouds.

The annual Data Summit conference returned in-person to Boston, May 17-18, 2022, with pre-conference workshops on May 16.
