Telematics information has been flowing from our assets to Caterpillar via email, satellite, cell tower, and direct connect for over 20 years. Our systems have morphed from a single Unix box to the Azure cloud, from Oracle to Azure Table Storage to SQL Server to HBase/Phoenix, and from 10 to 500 messages a second. This presentation will track where we came from and, more specifically, our current system of Azure event hubs, Storm topologies, Phoenix backend, and streaming with Spark.
In this session, learn all about the Caterpillar journey, from where we came from to where we are today—including lessons learned along the way. This presentation is aimed at those wanting to understand the interrelationship between change, technology, and platform decisions. In addition, we will show how modern tools can dramatically reduce the complexity and time associated with IoT solution deployment. The Audience should leave the session feeling that anyone can do IoT. Current tools are easier, faster, and better than ever.
