It is said that there will be 20 to 50 billion connected devices by 2020, generating US$14.4 trillion in value. However, the IoT value chain is highly fragmented and complex, especially when it involves edge devices. Machine-to-machine development can be complex, and current options are closed and monolithic. We need new value business models and seamless device-to-data-center platforms to truly enable the "Internet of Things". Java enables an open, standards-based platform to deploy highly integrated, end-to-end, device-to-data-center solutions. As the demand for smart, connected products grows, there is a huge opportunity for Java developers.
In this presentation, Sharada Achanta, VP of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware, will discuss latest development on Java for IoT, including what's new in Java 8 and Oracle Event Processing for Embedded Java, as well as example use cases where there is a convergence of IoT, Big Data/Fast Data and Cloud.
