In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.
The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.
This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.
A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.
Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.
As data is increasingly accessed and shared across geographic boundaries, a growing web of conflicting laws and regulations dictate where data can be transferred, stored, and shared, and how it is protected. The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) recently completed a significant effort to analyze and document the challenges posed by data residency.
Data residency issues result from the storage and movement of data and metadata across geographies and jurisdictions. Attend this webinar to learn more about data residency:
•How it may impact users and providers of IT services (including but not limited to the cloud)
•The complex web of laws and regulations that govern this area
•The relevant aspects – and limitations -- of current standards and potential areas of improvement
•How to contribute to future work
Engine generators are a mission-critical component for data centers, ensuring resilience, stability, and business continuity. In August 2012 the Tier Standard: Topology was updated, altering the way Uptime Institute adjudicates the engine generator suitability and capacity for Tier Certification. This change allowed manufacturers and designers a bit more flexibility than the ISO 8528-1 standard does by definition. Previously the Tier Certification capacities were tied only to the ISO standard. To clear up any confusion between the old and new standards, in this webinar we explain the current criteria and variables for engine generator ratings, outline the parameters for each Tier certification level, and discuss how to apply these standards to your facility and operations.Read more >
This webinar demonstrates the practical realization of standards-based executable modeling in UML, showing its importance for moving forward in a number of, perhaps, unexpected areas, including agile development methods, multi-core programming and model-based system engineering. Today’s Executable UML is based on the OMG’s Foundational UML (fUML) standard, for executable object-oriented and activity modeling, and the Action Language for fUML (Alf) standard, which defines a corresponding textual representation. But this is only the beginning. Additional Executable UML standards are being built on this foundation, including recent ones for composite structure and state machines. Come learn about the growing suite of OMG Executable UML specifications, watch these standards in action and discover the promise they hold for the future.Read more >
The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:
• Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
• How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
• Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures
This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters. Join this webcast on April 20th to learn more.
Join Mark Carlson as he hosts this panel discussion on Accelerating Cloud Adoption via Standards & Collaboration along with Val Bercovici, Chair of the SNIA CSI Governing Board, Winston Bumpus, President of DMTF, Craig Lee, President of OGF & Jon Siegel, VP of Technology Transfer at OMG.Read more >
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are an important subset of IoT applications. They are made possible by sharing multimodal transport information across data owners, application developers, service providers and end-users to deliver innovative services.
By exposing historically closed data assets to different stakeholders, Intelligent Transport Systems deliver significant economic gains; citizens benefit through informative services; journeys become more efficient; and, a transport assets start to generate higher returns. ITS will also have a profound impact on regional economic development by fostering new business start-ups, for example.
This webinar examines the intelligent-transport needs of local government and transport-sector authorities in the UK and how the oneM2M standard addresses their operational requirements across a broad set of stakeholders. Presenters from Arup, Buckinghamshire Country Council and InterDigital will describe how a public-private consortium field trial is using the standard within the oneTRANSPORT project. The pilot is being rolled out across several counties in the UK, covering a population of over 4m people. The webinar will also illustrate new application opportunities and business models for local authorities to monetize their assets including early Return-on-Investment projections for a viable, long-term deployment.
As a partner in the oneM2M global IoT standards development Partnership, TIA supports its deployment around the world. oneM2M is designed as an architecture and standards platform for IoT deployments in many industry sectors including Smart Cities, Industrial Automation, Home Automation and eHealth and Telemedicine, among others.
Now in its second published release, it is being deployed in a number of projects.
Now in its second published release, it is being tested for resilience as an IoT standard in a number of projects. This webcast will focus on:
• 3 projects such as Korean Smart Cities(Busan, Ilsan) and Wise-IoT which is the Joint European-Korean project.
• In England, U.K.’s oneTRANSPORT intelligent system trial which serves four U.K. counties. This trial involves England’s highways transportation agency and two private sector sensor-network owners over a single, interoperable IoT platform powered by the oneM2M™ standard.
• Overview of oneM2M certification(including background of the need for oneM2M certification program).
• Introduction of Certified Product (Target service and use cases are included per each company).

Get the answers to four common questions about using data standards to grow your business.Read more >
“Information can have great value as an organisational asset but can be a toxic liability if not handled properly” (Richard Thomas, UK Information Commissioner, 2008)
Advances in new technologies make it easier for organisations to collect greater amounts of data (especially personal data) and deliver more targetted services, but these same advances also raise concerns, not least about the ability of organisations to manage effectively such unprecedented volumes. These are challenges which can only be met by effective information governance.
Information governance is fast being recognized as a critical component of corporate governance and is about more than just ensuring data is secure. Data must also be collected, stored, retrieved, shared and destroyed in ways that enable an organisation to meet its objectives and customers’ needs, while still meeting legal obligations under data protection. With supply-chains becoming ever more complex, when organisations want reassurance that those with whom they do business operate to a common framework of information governance, standards are increasingly the accepted ‘lingua-franca’.
Virtualization technology enables IT personnel to respond to business needs more rapidly with lower cost and improved operational efficiencies. At the same time, interoperability and portability of applications are key for organizations that have purchased virtualization platforms from more than one vendor or want to take advantage of cloud service offerings.
In this session we will discuss how existing DMTF standards enables workload interoperability across different virtualization technologies and enable unified management of such environments. We will also discuss DMTF's Open Cloud Standards Incubator and explain how DMTF virtualization standards can be utilized to achieve interoperability between private clouds within enterprises and hosted or public cloud providers.

This video demonstration tells the story of an oil and gas producer located in the North Sea and their need to comply with performance standards for safety-critical elements on their off-shore facilities.
They were faced with several challenges, including:
- Trouble verifying that maintenance plans in their IBM Maximo system conformed with performance standards
- An inability to find and update all of the affected maintenance plans and job plans in Maximo when a performance standard was changed
- Difficulty demonstrating that they had assessed their data, and were in compliance
The cloud computing market continues to grow as rapidly as ever and yet, only a small portion of the true value of cloud has been realized.
Interoperability, portability and security are some of the biggest roadblocks slowing down the advancement of the cloud. The ability to port data, applications and share cloud services across multiple environments, while ensuring data protection and transparency is on top of every organization’s wish list today. A standardized set of principles can assist these organizations in utilizing the offerings of the cloud to the fullest.
In this roundtable discussion, hear about the current state of cloud standards, the latest developments and how these changes affect your organization and the industry as a whole.
