TMC and Crossfire Media Announce Fog Computing Conference Program

TMC and Crossfire Media today announced a two day conference program for the Fog Computing Conference, held November 19-20, 2014 at the San Jose Marriott Hotel. The inaugural event will focus on the benefits of Fog Computing, including managing switches, routers and sensors, monitoring and aggregating data, storing and sharing information for Business Intelligence systems and support for device mobility, people and assets.

“One size fits all cloud solutions miss opportunities to gather, manage and transform information and business processes,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, Fog Computing Conference. “Mixing Fog Computing with cloud solutions gives companies the chance to optimize for their field operations and customer care.”

The Fog Computing Conference agenda will feature sessions presented by industry leaders—including experts from Cisco, Axeda, Entrepreneur, OpenRAN, RacoWireless, Salesforce.com, 6Fusion —and will include the following sessions:

  • Cisco Industry Perspective - Fog Computing Architecture, and Why the Cloud and Smart Devices Aren’t Enough: This session explores IoE networks, and how Fog Computing complements both endpoint and Cloud device capabilities. We discuss a set of challenges faced by solutions that try to push all the intelligence up into the cloud latency, mobility, geographic diversity, bandwidth, reliability and security or down into smart endpoints power, space, bandwidth, modularity, scalability, environmental, storage, reliability, security. Finally, we describe Fog Computing architecture, how the intermediate Fog layers in the network enable a very rich application ecosystem and how they create opportunities for new network capabilities and higher levels of performance.
  • Getting out of the Haze: Hybrid Cloud Computing Becomes Foggy: The computing environment, like companies themselves, are a complex ecosystem where operations and information represent a blend of solutions. This session explores the value inherent in bringing cloud computing concepts back toward the premise.
  • Fog Support for Emerging IoT Applications: The IoT application landscape shows two distinctive peaks: consumer-oriented apps, and enterprisebased apps. This talk begins by contrasting their salient characteristics, and point to the need of the Fog to support enterprisebased applications.
  • A Vision for Fog Software and Application Architecture: This session explores the similarities and differences between fog and cloud, discusses the challenges presented by fog’s unique constraints and proposes an opensourced based solution to bring prevailing Cloud paradigms to Fog deployments with minimal disruptions.
  • The Plurality of Autonomic Networks: This session looks at the innovations in routing and network management brought about by segment routing, autonomic networks and other techniques.
  • Security Considerations and Implementation for Fog Platforms: This talk will address the issues, both solved and unsolved, around designing a secure Fog Platform.
  • Embedded Devices: Embedded Legacy: For the Internet of Things, sensors and devices are designed to have a long life out in the field. This makes configuration and management more about the modification and less about the replacement. This session explores what needs to be considered when selecting, developing and deploying new IoT devices.
  • Making the IoT “Things” Addressable, Manageable and Secure: This panel explores elliptic curve cryptography, federation and identity with the goal of making IoT addressable and manageable.
  • Enhancing Business Decisions through the Data Fabric of the IoT: With network connectivity and virtualization of computing, we are capable of making the data readily available and virtually addressable. This session explores how the cloud services translate into Enterprise data fabric solutions.
  • Predicative Systems: Utilizing data in Context for Better Decision Making: This discussion is about how understanding the data in context often lends itself to be used for diagnostics and predictive strategies in the Enterprise.
  • Real time Analytics - Putting the Fog Lights in Place: RealTime Analytics include technologies like complex event processing engines, streaming databases, massive parallel processing algorithms, inmemory compute grids, high performance computing hardware, and graphical processing units have a role to play in delivering intelligence to field operations. Learn how the use of context and tools will deliver business intelligence.
  • Radio Redundancy and Dynamic Spectrum Strategies for the Enterprise: This session explores the opportunity that now exists for the Enterprise to use some spectrum in a way that reduces costs, adds redundancy and provides some autonomy from service providers. With the pending regulatory decisions on 3.5 Hz, radios can be deployed and used dynamically on demand as needed.
  • IoT Managing with Real-Time Collaboration and HTML5: JavaScript, SVG and a suite of other complimentary solutions have enabled the delivery of real time information easier and more collaborative. This session looks at what is possible via the web and how it’s being used to make sure that collaboration is not hindered by lack of information.

The Fog Computing Conference is presented by Diamond Sponsor Cisco.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers.

A service mesh like Istio addr...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
