Know, Don’t Guess: Telemetry Analysis with
Hadoop and Platfora
 
Wednesday, December 11th 
12:00pm EST, 9:00am PST

Today, it is possible to combine telemetry data with other sources, such as customer support call logs, demographic data and CRM data, but it is not easy to interrogate that data and make fact-based decisions. Hadoop has made this cheap and scalable, but systems need to be flexible and need to be able to respond to the changes in the data model, and allow the end-user to easily explore the informationfor insights.

In this webinar, you will learn how Platfora has instrumented its systems with detailed telemetry data and leverages that information continuously for product and business decisions.

Join this #factbased webinar to hear:

-The architecture behind Platfora’s own internal telemetry solution using acombination of Hadoop, open source and off the shelf components.

-How Platfora leverages product telemetry data to make better decisions, faster and the interesting insights we were able to achieve.

-Techniques for incorporating multiple sources of data to achieve a 360 view of the customer.

-The pitfalls we encountered deploying our telemetry system & process with suggestions on how to avoid them!

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
