June, 2014


Welcome to the June Cirrostratus Group Newsletter.


The Internet of Things is generating a lot of buzz lately and for good reasons. I believe it will drive innovation in sensors and data collection, databases and storage, analytical tools and of course security.


There is an excellent Internet of Things conference, Cloud Connect, coming up in September. There is more information below but register now and use the promotional code CCSIoT14 when you do. This will save you an additional $100 off the Early Bird price. One of the best things about this conference is that it is in Boston and I am pleased to be a partner. I will definitely be attending and participating in the conversations.

I am excited about Cloud Connect, a great way to learn about IoT and there are a lot of good speakers talking about early applications and a lot vendors talking about their strategies to address IoT. If you register now and use promotional code CCSIoT14 you can save $100 off the early bird price.

One of the things that will have to be addressed in IoT is security and I'm glad that is being included in the agenda along with the new markets, opportunities and applications. 
Internet of Things and Big Data

What is the Internet of Things? A good basic definition is the WhatIs definition here but depending on the market area it can mean a lot of different things. I recently attended the MassTLC session on the Internet of Things and I believe that there will be significant opportunities in the IoT although I think that different vertical markets will develop at very different rates.

The synergy between Big Data and Internet of Things is significant and I found this Forbes article very enlightening about how IoT will drive "Big Data" strategies.
