What is the architecture of internet of things-The three-layer DCM classification is more about the IoT value chain than its system architecture at run time.

I hope you enjoyed with my previous post-5 on IOT.

For system architecture, some have divided the IoT system into as many as nine layers, from bottom to top:
  • devices
  • connectivity
  • data collection
  • communication
  • device management.
  • data rules
  • administration
  • applications
  • integration
While large companies such as IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, and others have comprehensive solutions, products, and services that cover almost the entire value chain.

Recommendation for you:  Part-2 | Part-1

Broadly IOT architecture can be classified as three layers:

  • Device Layer
  • Communication Layer
  • Mangement Layer
Device Layer: Devices or assets can be categorized as two groups: those that have inherent intelligence such as electric meters or heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) controllers, and those that are inert and must be enabled to become smart devices (e.g., RFID tagged) such as furniture or animals that can be electronically tracked and monitored—things that "talk."

Communication Layer: The communications layer is the foundational infrastructure of IoT. There are two major communication technologies: wireless and wired (or wireline). Each category has broadband and narrowband, packet and circuit switched, as well as short-range and long-range communications. The penetration and traffic of U.S. wireless data subscribers in 2013 will reach the same level of broadband wired household usage in 2008.

The mobile Internet is catching up quickly, thanks to the development of the Internet of Things and the flexibility of wireless communications.

Management Layer: This is the are where mining of data carried out to get business intelligence ideas
  • In the current customer-driven, technology-based environment, it is no longer enough to offer a service or product and expect it to satisfy your customers. Even if you have the best customer service in the industry, you have to be able to extend out your offerings to meet current demand to keep the customers satisfied. 
  • The Internet of Things brings enormous possibilities and potentials for creating new business value and generating new revenue ecosystems with data processing and managing rules that combine intelligence from remote assets unreachable before with your intelligent enterprise systems.
  • Examples: Disruptive applications beyond current imagination will appear. Smart grid, connected car, fleet control, mobile surveillance, and remote monitoring are listed as the top five disruptive applications out of a total of 65 identified, according to reports from the Boston Consulting Group.
All of the top five are IoT applications. For example, with the wide use of telematics, things like total vehicle life cycle management, refined used car price estimate, Pay as You Drive insurance policy, neighbor-to-neighbor car-sharing business such as those provided by startup RelayRides become possible, and the list goes on and on.

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

Tableau  Server  is  a  business  intelligence  application  that  provides  browser-based  analytics anyone can use. It’s a rapid-fire alternative to th…

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.
