"Cloud Platform for IoT"

The Internet of Things (IoT) is taking a center stage of industry and academia. In the history of IT, it becomes one of the most interesting technical fields to watch and participate as engineers and users. From engineering standpoints, device connectivity, data storage, and information computation become even more pervasive than ever. In another, users' view point, they want straightforward ways of connecting, monitoring, controlling, and programming of the connected things - device management. In order to meet such requirements more effectively, a new generation of platform that serves users' need anywhere and anytime is primal. In this talk, we discuss the essential backend capabilities of an emerging new generation of cloud platform. This cloud platform enables IoT services by providing scalable data processing, robust storage solutions, and analytics capabilities whilst all the device management are not more difficult than turning on the wall switch.
