Building an IoT Platform for your Enterprise, Pain or Gain?

Today, Enterprises venturing into the IoT space are faced with a dilemma:  build an IoT platform in-house or choose a service provider? While security, cost, scalability and the influx of IoT service providers (big and small) are important factors; Business agility and the ability to innovate faster with the capability to learn/iterate in the marketplace are also driving factors.  In this talk, we’ll discuss our experience developing an IoT platform for Emerson Climate Technologies’ smart home technologies.

Vivek Kestur has over 20 years of diverse experience in IT Strategy, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Software Development, Managed Services and Solution Architecture.  He currently leads a Software Solutions team that support Internet of Things (IoT) Products and Services tied to Home Energy Management and Comfort Control.

Simplifying IoT Infrastructure Deployments

IoT applications often involve real-time analysis of data and rapid deployments of internal software. To enable this, we’ve seen incredible growth in modern tooling with new projects like Kafka, Spark and Elasticsearch.  Unfortunately, most companies do not have the time and resources to manage and integrate disparate open source projects. Can we make the complex infrastructure that powers IoT data analysis pipelines easy to deploy and manage?

In this talk we’ll walk through a modern production stack from cloud deployment to load balancing based on our experience of developing Mantl is an open-source (Apache 2.0) project sponsored by Cisco that makes it easy for anyone to deploy infrastructure for running containers and streaming data applications like Kafka, Spark and Elasticsearch. This will be a technical talk where we will walk through all of the components of a modern stack and explain usage, pain points, and how the pieces fit together. Attendees will get an understanding on how to compose a production system from disparate open-source technologies.

Steven Borrelli is the Founder & CEO of Asteris, located in St. Louis, Missouri. He’s the lead architect and a core committer for the project, and was one of the first organizers of the St. Louis Machine Learning & Data Science Meetup.
