IoT device management

How to master complexity in IoT deployments

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to deliver insights by combining multiple sources of device data with enterprise data and other information. This data-driven knowledge can be used to enhance existing business cases or create completely new business models. But to successfully deploy an IoT solution for an enterprise, it is crucial to consider the foundation of any IoT solution: device management.

Anomaly detection in the IoT

One type of task that can be effectively tackled with data analysis is anomaly detection. Its goal is to find unusual behavior that differs significantly from what has been observed before or from what is expected. In this white paper, we describe our approach, highlight some observations made during various projects, and have a look at the components that a system for data analysis typically includes.

Real-world challenges in developing IoT solutions

A joint white paper by Bosch Software Innovations and PTC® provides IoT examples

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way many companies do business. Many traditional manufacturers are integrating their physical products with internet-based backend services, and internet companies are expanding their offerings by integrating data from sensors and physical assets. New companies are entering the market with IoT solutions that combine physical products with internet-based services. Sensor-generated data and machine learning solutions enable new, data-driven business models. All these players can benefit from fast and easy IoT solution development. To facilitate this, Bosch Software Innovations has teamed up with PTC® to deliver a joint offering described in the white paper.

Gateways in IoT scenarios

During the course of more than 150 IoT projects in different domains we detected several IoT patterns which also result in different approaches on how to connect devices. Many IoT solutions are hosted on a cloud environment. Often it is possible to connect devices directly to the backend system. However, for various scenarios there are some recommendations for connecting devices in a more indirect way via gateways. In this webcast, we have a look on real-world use cases in different domains. Moreover, we do a comparison between gateway- and non-gateway-based IoT solutions, and show the benefits of an open-standards based framework leveraging OSGi and Java technologies.

Anomaly Detection with event data in IoT

Today, devices generate more data than social networks. Each device can send data several times per second and with millions of connected devices, a typical data processing platform might be required to deal with billions of such incoming events every day. Even though processing this amount of data is obviously a considerable and by no means trivial technological challenge, it is clear that the device data itself – even when stored in a preprocessed form – is not something actionable. To get actionable insights, the collected data must be analyzed. One type of task that can be effectively tackled with data analysis is anomaly detection. Its goal is to find unusual behavior that differs significantly from what has been observed before or from what is expected.
