Wavefront Summit 2015 trains eyes on IoT | InsightaaS - Insight as a Service [cached]

Paul Terry, president & CEO, PHEMI
Paul Terry, president & CEO, PHEMI Paul Terry, CEO of data warehouse provider PHEMI, also engaged in some visioning in his presentation "Big Data, the Internet of Things and Analytics," - noting, for example, US President Obama's 'precision medicine' proposal for sequencing the DNA of a million people to support the development of personalized medicine - but his real focus was on the data enablement of IoT. According to Terry, "Big Data is a shoe box" or "a small supercomputer" where technologies like storage and compute are becoming increasingly commoditized, and there are now ingest rates of approximately of 100 million transactions a second. Price drops - to 6 cents per gigaflop for storage - mean that storage and compute prices are no longer a barrier to IoT deployment. However, 'Big Data' is not so much about volumes of information, he argued, as it is about "let me find as much data as I need to find patterns in data," a key consideration that should inform IoT implementations. Terry observed that you can store anything these days (many varieties of data), but the trick is to know what you have, to secure it, and to be able to move it quickly. The key on this score is metadata, which provides control over the information and can solve issues in a digital library of assets, namely, the need for a catalogue of contents that would enable cross connect in 200 milliseconds or less, irrespective of the size of the data. A proper catalogue, as he described it, consists of an inventory of digital assets, (keywords, graphs), can deliver privacy-security-governance at the data layer (no more need for a VPN anymore), and can accommodate the continuous addition of structure/value to the data. What it delivers is a disruptive ability to return a query really quickly (Google can return a million results in .3 of a second), a prerequisite for the many IoT solutions that will be based on real time data analytics. For Terry, and many in the Wavefront audience based on their comments in the question period, the most critical issue is security and privacy - "how to do Big Data analytics with adult supervision" - and his answer was Privacy by Design, or "IoT with De-Identification."

"This certification is another important milestone in our work with SAP to bring our customers a simpler and more powerful model for storing, accessing, protecting and mining strategic digital assets," said Paul Terry, CEO of PHEMI.
"More than 70% of healthcare information is unstructured and difficult to mine for relevant insight using traditional methods," Terry added.
