Attend the 6 Feb @Cloudera Federal Forum: For the Analyst, Data Scientist, #BigData Technologist in DC

By Bob Gourley

The agenda for the 3rd Annual Cloudera Federal Forum (6 Feb 2014, Hanover MD) has firmed up and will no doubt lead to an incredible event. This will be a great venue for thought leaders from the federal government, great tech firms and very talented integrator firms.

The speakers are a world-class-best mix of data and analysis practitioners, and from what I can tell the attendees will be the real action-oriented professionals from government really making things happen in Big Data analysis. This will be the perfect place to share lessons learned, exchange use-cases, meet others working similar challenges, and help advance the state of analytics in the government space.

Connected devices are changing the way we go about our everyday life, from wearables to driverless cars, to smart grids and entire industries revolutionizing business opportunities through smart objects, capable of two-way communication. But what happens when objects are given an IP-address, and we rely on that connection, sometimes with our lives? How do we secure those vast data infrastructures and safe-keep the privacy of sensitive information? This session will outline how each and every connected device can uphold a core root of trust via a unique cryptographic signature – a “bir...
From a software development perspective IoT is about programming "things," about connecting them with each other or integrating them with existing applications.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
