XMPro Internet of Things Demo

This is a short demo that shows how XMPro integrate smart devices in the “Internet of Things” with intelligent or smart business processes.   This is a lab setup and the first part of the video shows the UI on the device itself, how it logs data to a time series database and how it triggers an alert that, in turn, starts a new process in XMPro.   It was done to demonstrate a number of key requirements of integrating devices with processes. The first part of the video and UI is actually the on-board software on the lab device…

Internet of Things in Finance

Today I will talk about you how the Internet of Things can be used in the finance sector, and I will show you how to monitor the global stock market on a world map with a smart and connected device.   Even if most information today is already available at a hands reach, which is usually a smartphone, there is a point in making some important information even easier to access. In a previous video, I’ve already talked about how an airline company used the color of a flower to indicate their sales, so this time I wanted to create…

Assistive Technology With IFTTT (If This Then That) + IoT (Internet of Things): Part 1

We saw a couple of months ago how Amazon Echo, or Alexa, can be such a huge help to people with disabilities. With very simple commands, Alexa can read us a book, control lights in our house, and also order a pizza for us! However, how about we take things a step further, and make a combination of technologies and applications just do things for us without us having to perform any sort of manual interaction with any app or device?   IFTTT, which stands for If This Then That, has been around for a few years now, and can…

Architecture and Interoperability Standards for the Internet of Things

This is a video of a webinar on the architectural use of the Open Group O-MI and O-DF standards for the Internet of Things (IoT).   The webinar was given in June 2015 by Professor Kary Främling of Aalto University, chair of the Open Platform 3.0™ Internet of Things Work Group in The Open Group. It includes demonstrations of the use of the standards in practical systems.   The Internet of Things requires changes to the traditional way of architecting information systems. In the past, enterprise systems might have needed to communicate mainly with other enterprise systems. With the IoT,…

Internet of Things – iBeacons

Today I will talk about how you can use iBeacons with mobile apps. I will create a simple iPhone app that can find an iBeacon, and show information about it.   The idea of iBeacons is quite simple: it’s a small device that sends out a signal that a mobile phone (or tablet) can pick up and act on. The technology used to send the signal is a version of Bluetooth using low energy, so that its battery can last longer. Depending on the signal’s strength, the phone can determine the distance to the iBeacon, and on iOS, the distinctions…
