In my last post we started to look at two different Internet of Things (IoT) paradigms. The first only involved streaming automatically generated data from machines (such as sensor data). The second combined human-generated and machine-generated data, such as social media updates that are automatically augmented with geo-tag data by […]
The concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) is used broadly to cover any organization of communication devices and methods, messages streaming from the device pool, data collected at a centralized point, and analysis used to exploit the combined data for business value. But this description hides the richness of […]

The Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and connected devices are all the buzz leading up to DistribuTECH (Feb 9-11), so I sat down with one of our IoT specialists, Lorry Hart to learn more. Lorry will be at DistribuTECH to support our joint demonstration with Intel and gave me the […]
SAS brings real-time sensors and analytics to 2016 DistribuTECH was published on SAS Voices.
When we talk about the Internet of Things and “analytics at the edge,” we’re talking about modeling data as close as possible to the device – not far away in some warehouse or data storage appliance. So, generally, the edge is anything with a sensor that is transmitting data: an […]
I've seen a number of articles and webinars recently that discuss data integration as a cloud-based service. So I thought it was worth exploring what this really means in the context of big data – specifically when the objective is to exploit many sources of streaming data for analytics. My initial reaction […]
