Disruptive macro trends in technology are impacting and dramatically changing the "art of the possible" relative to supply chain management practices through the innovative use of IoT, cloud, machine learning and Big Data to enable connected ecosystems of engagement. Enterprise informatics can now move beyond point solutions that merely monitor the past and implement integrated enterprise fabrics that enable end-to-end supply chain visibility to improve customer service delivery and optimize supplier management. Learn about enterprise architecture strategies for designing connected systems that integrate physical and digital supply chains with your enterprise systems, leveraging IoT devices, hybrid cloud and network service providers to enable innovative business models while mitigating risk, managing security and increasing capacity to meet customer changing SLA requirements.
In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Industry Manager, Manufacturing & Supply Chain at Microsoft Corporation, will review several examples where firms have implemented industrial IoT solutions to legacy infrastructure and sensors to dramatically reduce costs and increase service performance and reliability.
Peter Vanderminden is the Industry Manager, Manufacturing & Supply Chain at Microsoft Corporation, where he consults to some of Microsoft's largest corporate accounts on business solutions and enterprise architecture strategies. Mr. Vanderminden also serves on the Board of Directors of the APICS/Supply Chain Council, a global non-profit industry trade association with over 600 member firms that is focused on establishing best practices for supply chain management. He holds an MBA, with Distinction, from Leeds University, UK; a BS in Communications Science from RPI, Troy, NY and a post-graduate certificate in System Dynamics from MIT, Cambridge, MA. A Six Sigma Master Black Belt, his career spans 30 years of working in supply chain management, transportation, financial services, health/life sciences and computer software industries and has worked at companies such as GE, JP Morgan Chase, UPS and Pitney Bowes/MapInfo.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connecte...

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
