OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/15/14 -- National Public Service Week serves as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the contributions of public servants across Canada. There have been many opportunities, at home and abroad, where I have relied on the expertise of public servants. In fact, I could not fulfill my role without them.
A nation needs a strong, innovative, dedicated public service to remain globally competitive and to sustain essential support for Canadians. Those who serve Canada do so in many different capacities, because they believe that creating a stronger, fairer, more just society requires all of us to work together. Many public servants work behind the scenes, invisible yet invaluable; without them, we would not have the success that we enjoy.
During my years as governor general, I have seen first-hand, and on many occasions, how public servants have earned our respect. I hope that all Canadians will join me in saluting our public servants who help create a smarter, more caring nation.
This year, National Public Service Week is celebrated from June 15 to 21.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
