The Object Management Group is hosting a special event, OMG Standards at Work in the IIoT, on September 23, 2015 from 1:30pm – 5:30pm in Cambridge, MA. This event is part of the OMG Technical Meeting from September 21-25, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cambridge, MA. Registration is available for the day or week.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is delivering improved productivity, major cost savings, and streamlined processes to professionals from all industries. OMG has been active in IIoT standardization from long before “IIoT” became an industry buzzword. This half-day information session looks at several important areas where OMG standards are proving integral to IIoT efforts around the globe. Industry experts will share case studies of these standards at work in the industrial internet, and present their vision of the future within this rapidly growing field.
CISQ Director, Dr. Bill Curtis, is presenting “Software Risk in the IoT Universe.”
CISQ session abstract:
The daily reports of system outages and breaches show no signs of abating, and embedded software has seen its share of product problems. Since IoT will be integrating systems built by different vendors and manufacturers, incorrect assumptions about how different systems work and integrate will be a major challenge. Product manufacturers in particular will have to move beyond practices such as lean and six sigma that worked for physical products, to embrace practices more relevant to intellectual artifacts such as software. Software components will have to be robust and dependable enough to work in an environment characterized by supply chains with other components undergoing frequent change, a dark universe of potential interactions with software the developer was unaware of, and sly attack patterns by those with nefarious intent. Strengths and weaknesses of current practices and quality technologies will be discussed.
