Frameworks and Transports: Choosing the Best IIoT Connectivity Solution

Building out a distributed system infrastructure in today’s emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape can be a daunting task, to say the least. If you are a developer or system architect, you know that there are many tools and protocols available to use to move data around in your distributed application. Not to mention the possibility of building out your own custom solution directly on TCP or UDP sockets. Wouldn’t it be great if a lot of the work that needed to be done before you could make a decision on your next infrastructure was already done for you?

HIMSS18: Improving Healthcare is NOT a Technology Problem

"Better health through information and technology"– that is the motto of global healthcare IT organization HIMSS. This week I had the opportunity to attend HIMSS18, the organization’s global conference in Las Vegas. A gathering of over 40,000 healthcare technology professionals in one location, united by one concept, was truly inspiring. The show created a call to action for us as attendees to do our part in solving some of healthcare’s biggest challenges. And make no mistake, there are significant challenges. Each year these challenges are reflected as consistent themes throughout the event, communicated by participating vendors, in presentations, in keynote speeches and in casual conversations.

Implementing Simple Introspection with Connext DDS in C++14

When I was first introduced to RTI Connext® DDS, it wasn't very long (after seeing the powerful tools) before I wanted to know how difficult it would be to implement domain introspection in its most basic form. Obviously tools, such as the Admin Console, are complex but that doesn’t mean that the basic principle on which they’re based – domain introspection – has to be. So I set about trying my hand at creating the simplest example of domain introspection that would have some demonstrable utility. This blog post covers my journey into this effort.

Industrie 4.0 and IIC Bury the Hatchet

In 2015, there was a great deal of confusion, competition and even animosity between the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Germany’s Platform Industrie 4.0. At first, some thought the IIC was the USA's response to Germany’s initiative, others felt that the IIC was attempting a land grab, and others zeroed in on the fact that the OMG managed both the IIC and, in its standards area, the DDS standard (the OPC Foundation has come a long way in its understanding of the pros and cons of DDS and OPC-UA since then).

Profiling Distributed Applications with Perf

I, like many developers, have been in situations where I needed to take an existing application and make it faster–basically by removing slow code and replacing it with fast code. I know now to follow one simple rule when it comes to optimizing code:

Using a Data-Centric Approach to Building Healthcare IIoT Solutions     

An interview with the CEO of DocBox, Tracy Rausch

During the RTI Connext Conference in San Jose, CA, I had the opportunity to talk with the CEO of DocBox, Tracy Rausch. For the the past 10 years, DocBox’s mission has been to drive efficiency in healthcare through the democratization of data. Their combination of hardware, software and analytics aims to arm healthcare providers with more actionable information than ever before. The goal is to provide a platform with similar capabilities to SMART on FHIR – an open application programming interface that allows developers to create apps (and clinicians to select apps) that work with their EHR system, regardless of vendor for mission critical, real-time data.
