||Needham, MA — The Object Management Group (OMG) will be hosting the special event, "The Internet of Things — Navigating the Future of Information Technology", at its quarterly technical meeting at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, NJ. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 25 at 9am EST and will present a distinguished panel of speakers from industry-leading organizations including General Electric, Lockheed Martin and PrismTech. The all-day event will focus on the increasing number of networked devices that have appeared on the market in recent years and will contribute to forming the foundation of the Internet of Things. In particular, the use of the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard will be discussed. Case studies detailing DDS's uses in Smart Cities, Smart Energy, and Transportation will provide a basis as to the specification's capabilities in regards to Internet of Things applications.
The keynote speech, "Minds + Machines", will be delivered by Joe Salvo, Manager of Business Integration Technologies at General Electric. The talk will discuss the Industrial Internet: an open, global network that connects machines, people, and data.
Finally, the OMG Systems Assurance Task Force will discuss its work on creating a suite of specifications that is capable of importing common facts into an OMG repository, the Knowledge Discovery Metamodel, which can then be queried to produce tailored assurance reports as needed by program certifiers.
This seminar is for anyone who has or even hasn't yet heard the buzzwords: "Internet of Things", "Industrial Internet", and "machine-to-machine" and has wondered what they are and how they can be used.
