Data Distribution Service Tutorial Live Webcast

Date: 25th June 2015
Location: Online

Why Attend:

  • Learn DDS-based data-centric design and data-modeling fundamentals
  • Learn the most important Programming, Data Modeling, Quality of Service Idioms and Patterns
  • Learn how DDS can be effectively leveraged for Internet of Things systems

Abstract:

The Data Distribution Service (DDS) is a standard for efficient and ubiquitous data sharing built upon the concept of a strongly typed distributed data space. The ability to scale from resource constrained embedded systems to ultra-large scale distributed systems has made DDS the technology of choice for applications in industries such as Industrial Automation, Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Connected Vehicles, Medical Devices, Air Traffic Control and Management, Modeling and Simulation, Defense and Aerospace.

This webcast will provide attendees with an introduction to the DDS standard. After attending the webcast you will understand how to exploit DDS architectural features when designing your next system, how to write idiomatic DDS applications and what are the fundamental patterns that you should adopt in your applications.

The webcast will last approximately one hour. Click here to book your seat.

Building Reactive Data-centric Applications with Vortex, Apache Spark and ReactiveX Live Webcast

Date: 30th April 2015
Location: Online

Why Attend:

  • Understand the foundations of Reactive Data-Centric Architectures as promoted by the reactivemanifesto.org and the datacentricmanifesto.org
  • Learn about the features of Vortex that support Reactive Data-Centric Architectures
  • Learn how Vortex can be used in combination with Apache Spark and ReactiveX to build high performance data-centric

Abstract:

An increasing number of Software Architects are realizing that data is the most important asset of a system and are starting to embrace the Data-centric revolution (datacentricmanifesto.org) — setting data at the center of their architecture and modeling applications as “visitors” to the data. At the same time, architects have also realized that reactive architectures (reactivemanifesto.org) facilitate the design of scalable, fault-tolerant and high performance systems.

Yet, few architects have realized that reactive and data-centric architectures are the two sides of the same coin and should always go hand in hand.

This webcast will show how reactive data-centric systems can be designed and built taking advantage of PrismTech’s Vortex data sharing capabilities along with its integration with reactive and data-centric processing technologies such as Apache Spark and ReactiveX.

The webcast will last approximately one hour.

Interoperability and the Internet of Things – To standardize or not to standardize Ecast

Date Aired: 12 March 2015
Location: Online

The Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses a range of technology verticals, from consumer electronics and connected cars to industrial controls and the smart grid. However, while this immense diversity has created a market opportunity valued as high as $14.4 trillion, it has also generated significant interoperability issues stemming from a vast amount of available communications protocols. As a result, multiple consortia have coalesced to develop standardized connectivity frameworks that will advance the IoT. Join us as networking experts from these organizations consider the current connectivity landscape and define approaches that enable ubiquitous connectivity for the IoT.

Architecting Internet of Things Systems with Vortex Webcast

Date Aired: 25 February 2015
Location: Online

Why Attend:

  • Understand the key needs of Consumer and Industrial IoT systems,
  • Discover how Vortex can address the data sharing requirements of IoT systems and enable elastic analytics,
  • Learn how the different elements of Vortex support brown- and green-field deployments.

Abstract:

Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) systems have to deal with massive volumes of data, collected as well as shared, with very heterogeneous targets, such as embedded systems, mobile, web and cloud applications.  Additionally, different communication patterns, such as device-to-device and device-to-cloud have to be supported to enable the right combination of fog, edge and cloud computing. Furthermore, the systems value increasingly depends on its ability to transform, in real-time, these massive amount of data into “actionable” information.

This webcast will identify the key requirements of Consumer and Industrial IoT systems and show how PrismTech’s Vortex platform is able to provide a solution that addresses them.

The webcast will last approximately one hour.

PrismTech Announces Vortex, the Intelligent Data Sharing Platform for the Internet of Things

Vortex enables real-time data sharing between smart phones, browsers, embedded devices, corporate servers and cloud services

Boston, MA, USA – March 27, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced Vortex™, the intelligent data sharing platform for business-critical Internet of Things (IoT) systems.

Vortex provides efficient, secure and interoperable real-time Device to Device (D2D) and Device to Cloud information sharing.  It is a key enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of real-time data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS).

Vortex enables an IoT global data space with over 20 configurable Qualities of Service (QoS) to ensure the performance, efficiency and robustness required of business-critical systems.  It helps system integrators, OEMs, device platform vendors and Cloud service providers deliver ‘Smart’ solutions for many vertical markets, including: Healthcare, Energy, Transportation, Smart Cities and Industrial Automation.

The Vortex platform includes components to connect mobile devices (Vortex Café), connected sensors and machines (Vortex Lite), Cloud services (Vortex Cloud), browsers (Vortex Web), enterprise systems (OpenSplice™) and existing complementary systems (Vortex Gateway).  Any or all of these components can be acquired as part of various Vortex bundles.

The Vortex family comes with a complete set of tools in support of the systems development and management tasks (e.g. for configuring, testing, optimizing, monitoring and recording system behavior) and provides a rich and open API for integration with other IoT application platform technologies (such as IDEs, Java EE application servers or analytics engines for example).

The Vortex product family is planned to be generally available in June 2014.  The availability of Vortex will not affect PrismTech’s OpenSplice users other than offering them the upgrade potential of adding Vortex capabilities to their current systems.

“We are convinced the IoT offers distributed systems experts like PrismTech the best growth opportunity in a decade,” said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech.  “As such, we have invested heavily in Vortex over the past several years to be first-to-market with an intelligent data-sharing platform that connects all the end-point applications of an IoT system in real-time: mobile people, smart machines, tiny sensors, enterprise / cloud applications (including data analytics) and legacy applications.  Vortex provides the performance, agility and robustness required by business-critical systems, while allowing integrators to exploit the cost and ubiquity benefits of the Internet, the Cloud, smartphones and tablets.  OEMs and systems integrators that need to deliver superior end-to-end system performance will greatly appreciate the value-add of the Vortex data-sharing platform and its tools.”

Further information about Vortex will be detailed in a live Webcast delivered by PrismTech’s CTO on April 9, 2014.  Registration for the Webcast is available at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup.
