From the filters ensuring clean water in our homes to the bed monitors keeping patients alive at hospitals, the physical world is being stitched into a digital fabric. This trend is commonly referred to as the internet of things “IoT.” The emergence of IoT has brought on a wealth of big data. Unfortunately, 97% of enterprises have challenges getting value from IoT-related data, creating business inefficiencies and security risks. In this talk, we will show how more “little” data vs. big data can have outsized impacts on saving money and time as well as increasing security hygiene. For example, little data can make the difference between responding to the anomalous behavior of a fridge in the physician’s lounge vs. a fridge holding vaccines. In one, a couple of doctors’ lunch gets warm; in the other, patients can miss critical medical care. Audience members will walk away with real-world case studies and techniques for gathering and combining little and big data, and a better understanding of how we can improve the resilience of IoT in the long term.
