Internet of Things, Defogged

There is no doubt that IoT is gaining momentum. The vast network of connected devices today will grow to more than four devices per person on the planet by 2020. Many companies are lagging behind this trend, due to confusion over the plethora of terms, concepts, proprietary standards, protocols, and solutions for internet-connected things.

During “Internet of Things, Defogged” you will learn: * The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) reference architecture for a typical IoT solution * Specific GCP services mapped to business and system needs * Real-life case studies and modern deployment options * Efficient processing and storage of sensor data * GCP services including Cloud IoT Core, Pub/Sub, Dataflow, BigQuery, BigTable, Cloud MLE, and TensorFlow

Participants will learn about possible choices (and consequences) of making particular architecture decisions that affect power efficiency, reliability, cost, etc. Additionally, discuss present real-world case studies and address practical questions which often arise during IoT adoption by enterprises.

Attendees are encouraged to think of potential use cases and bring for discussion.

Good for Storage = Bad for Analysis: Why Everyone Needs OLAP Data Models

In the world of data, everyone understands two fundamental truths: you have to store data, and you have to visualize it. Along the way, you may also have to do some data cleansing, and perform some calculations, but those tasks generally fall to the storage layer – and the results are then fed to the visuals in an “as-is” state.

Attendees of this talk will explore why this “storage and charts” mentality, while certainly pervasive, misses something spectacularly valuable: the power of a middle-tier modeling and calculation layer. Rob Collie will share lessons learned over two decades in the world of data: twelve years as a Microsoft engineering leader on SQL, Excel, and Bing followed by eight years as founder and president of an agile business intelligence consulting firm.

His firm has created over a billion dollars in value for its clients, all thanks to the power of the middle tier. In this talk he will share case studies and clear explanations of why the middle tier creates value that would be impossible with the traditional two-tier model.
