With the rise of smart analytics processing data generated by interconnected devices and machines, we are experiencing a technological shift not seen since the Internet Revolution of the 1980s-90s. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is delivering improved productivity, major cost savings, and streamlined processes to professionals from all industries. OMG has been active in IIoT standardization from long before “IIoT” became an industry buzzword. This half-day information session looks at two important areas where OMG standards are proving integral to IIoT efforts around the globe. Industry experts will share case studies of these standards at work in the industrial internet, and present their vision of the future within this rapidly growing field.
Data-Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS)
OMG’s Data-Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard provides a protocol that meets the demanding scalability, performance, and Quality of Service requirements of IIoT applications spanning connected machines, enterprise systems, and mobile devices. DDS is deployed world-wide on platforms ranging from low-power, low-footprint devices to Cloud servers. It supports efficient bandwidth usage and flexible real-time system integration for the agile orchestration of system components, while simultaneously providing a global data space for data analytics.
Systems Assurance (SysA)
The rapid development of truly global machine-to-machine interoperability also brings with it the threat of cyber-attacks and data theft on a previously unimaginable scale. Poorly-secured IIoT systems could pose an existential threat to the industries that deploy them. OMG’s Systems Assurance Task Force (SysA TF) works on standards that ensure the reliability, safety and security of IIoT systems. Leading practitioners in the field will present a state-of-the-practice look at current issues in risk management and security assurance, describing the OMG standards and initiatives that will help the Industrial Internet of Things deliver on its promise without succumbing to the threats it faces.
Dr. Angelo Corsaro, PhD, CTO, PrismTech and Co-Chair, Data Distribution Service (DDS) Platform Special Interest Group will be speaking at the event on:
Reactive and Data-Centric Architectures with DDS
Abstract: An increasing number of Software Architects realize that data is the most important asset of a system and start embracing the Data-Centric revolution (datacentricmanifesto.org) – setting data at the center of their architecture and modelling applications as “visitors” to the data. At the same time, architects have also realized how reactive architectures (reactivemanifesto.org) facilitate the design of scalable, fault-tolerant and high performance systems. Few architects have yet realised how reactive and data-centric architectures are two sides of the same coin and as such should always go together. This presentation explains why reactive data-centric architecture is the future and how the OMG DDS Standard is uniquely positioned to support this paradigm shift. A series of use cases will highlight how the data-centric revolution is being applied in practice and what measurable benefits it is providing.
