Hot Tech Firms at the 2012 DoDIIS Conference

The Exhibitor List for the 2012 DoDIIS Worldwide Conference is up at http://www.ncsi.com/dodiis12/exhibitor_list.html

Many of the firms there are technology firms, which is why this is one of the great events of the year. The text below is based on the current exhibitor list.  This event is getting HUGE which makes it very hard to spend more than about a second with all the vendors. Everyone seeks ways to focus on the vendors that are most relevant and have the most disruptive technologies. I am frequently asked for suggestions on which firms to visit and am working on my personal list of recommendations.  But we are also preparing a survey so we can solicit your views and will be rolling that out in a day or so. The survey will ask you to nominate what you believe to be the most significant technologies, the ones that people absolutely “must see” at the event. We will ask you to name them and to name why they are so important to get a look at.  Then we will boil down the results and post them here.

In preparation for the survey please glance over the list below. It will give you a feel for why we need a way of selecting the best firms to visit.  There are a huge number of firms here, and just seeing a name gives no indication why you should drop in on them.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
