The rise of the internet and advances in telecommunications, hardware and software have now given us the possibility to connect everything. According to predictions, there will soon be billions of objects; collecting, processing and sharing information on the net. Experts say that connecting the unconnected in the next decade will generate trillions of dollars. The Internet of things is opening up a new world of possibilities for society as well as creating infinite business opportunities for the IT industry.

But just how do we go about capitalising on all of this potential? How do we find out the real needs of different vertical markets? How do we contact key players and decision makers in each industrial sector? How do we present technological solutions in the most profitable, effective and efficient way? How do we transform the opportunities provided by the Internet of Things into real business?

The Industrial Internet applies “internet thinking” to industrial settings, covering the non-consumer side of the internet of things. It connects smart machines and devices and people at work, leading to better decision making through advanced analytics that result in transformational business outcomes.

Angelo Corsaro, PrismTech’s CTO to Present on DDS at OMG IIoT Standards at Work Event in Berlin

Dr. Corsaro will explain the many benefits that using Reactive and Data-Centric Architectures with DDS can bring to the IIoT

Chief Technology Officer Angelo Corsaro, Ph.D., will present on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard during the Object Management Group’s (OMG™) Industrial Internet of Things Standards at Work Event in Berlin, Germany in June. A widely known and cited expert in the field of real-time and distributed systems, Dr. Corsaro will address “Reactive and Data-Centric Architectures with DDS.”

The OMG’s DDS is a data-centric standard that is ideally suited for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems. Among its many benefits, it provides the necessary scalability, performance, and quality-of-service (QoS) features needed to support IIoT applications.

Industrial Internet of Things standards event

A long time active member of the OMG, Dr. Corsaro co-chairs the DDS Special Interest Group for the technology standards consortium. Dr. Corsaro and several other invited industry representatives will deliver their presentations at the OMG Standards at Work in the Industrial Internet of Things Event on June 17, 2015 in Berlin, Germany.

“The DDS standard is well positioned to play a significant role in the continued growth of Industrial IoT systems,” said Dr. Corsaro, who recently conducted the industry’s first qualitative and quantitative analysis of data-sharing standards for the IoT. “Based on a variety of crucial parameters such as latency, overhead and efficiency, DDS regularly out performs other protocols that can be used within IIoT.”

PrismTech’s intelligent data-sharing platform, Vortex, is based on the DDS open standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for device-to-device, device-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud Internet scale real-time data sharing. It is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end QoS facilitating its ability to deliver the right information to the right place at the right time.

Dr. Corsaro is the author of numerous international standards and a renowned expert on middleware, software patterns, and real-time and distributed systems. He directs PrismTech’s Vortex technology strategy, planning and evolution.

Distributed Algorithms in DDS: Higher Level Abstractions for Building Scalable and Fault-Tolerant Distributed Systems Live Webcast

Date: 21st May 2015
Location: Online

Why Attend:

  • Understand the common challenges posed by Distributed Systems and the traps and pitfalls that you should avoid.
  • Learn about the key distributed algorithms that can be used to solve common problems, such as fault-detection, group management, distributed mutex and barriers, etc., when architecting distributed systems.
  • Discover how these algorithms can be efficiently implemented in DDS.

Abstract:

The OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard has recently received an incredible level of attention and press coverage due to its relevance for Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications and its suitability for the Industrial Internet Consortium’s Reference Architecture. The main reason for the excitement in DDS stems from its data-centricity, efficiency, internet-wide scalability, high-availability and configurability.

Although DDS provides a very feature rich platform for architecting distributed systems, it focuses on doing one thing well — namely data-sharing. As a result, many architects and developers tend to devise by themselves – assuming the DDS primitives as a foundation – the (hopefully correct) algorithms for distributed systems such as fault-detection, distributed mutual exclusion, distributed barriers, leader election, consensus, atomic multicast, distributed queues, etc.

This webcast explores DDS-based distributed algorithms for many classical, yet fundamental, problems in distributed systems. By attending the webcast you will learn how recurring problems arising in the design of distributed systems can be addressed using algorithms that are correct and perform well.
