The IoT Community – Internet of Things Community Announces Phizzle Has Joined Its Elite IoT Ecosystem as a Gold Level Corporate Member

Ben Davis, Phizzle CEO, appointed to the IoT Community Advisory Board; to serve on Converged Edge Center of Excellence

Phizzle CTO, Ryan Brady, to present Keynote at the IoT Slam 2020 Virtual Conference, August 19th, 2020.

Phizzle CIO, Vijji Suryadevara, to participate in Women in IoT Center of Excellence panel, August 19th, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)The IoT Community (Internet of Things Community), the world’s largest community of CxOs and IoT professionals and practitioners, announces Phizzle, the leader in software that solves the power and data complexity challenges of edge computing, joins the IoT Community ecosystem of elite IoT thought leaders. Phizzle will work collaboratively with the community to address the wide variety of barriers, inhibitors, and technical and operational issues that accompany the IoT, IIoT, and Intelligent Edge ecosystems.

Ben Davis, CEO Phizzle, joins the IoT Community board of advisors, and will serve on the IoT Community’s recently formed Converged Edge Center of Excellence (CECoE), which aims to address the rapidly growing needs of the emerging technology frontier – underpinned by the IoT – the edge. The Converged Edge CoE focuses on the 3 C’s of an IoT solutions architecture – Connect, Compute, Control, and their convergence in processes, data, and physical integration.

At the August 19th, IoT Slam 2020 virtual event, Phizzle CTO – Ryan Brady, joins a lineup of elite IoT thought leaders and executives and will give a keynote – titled, “Location, Location, Location, The Power of the Edge. The keynote will explore how moving computing workloads to the edge can have surprising benefits that lead to entirely new ways of interacting with data. Take one classic edge exercise: bringing millions of time series records per second into a time series database from varied IoT data sources. High-performance time series databases require data to be inserted in order. Geographically decentralized networks then lead to significant delays in delivering data to the database. This delay is measured not just in milliseconds but seconds. The larger this window, the more data must be sorted before insertion into the database. This problem of windowing and sorting at the edge is a simple and powerful example of the true value of localized performance computing.

This session will be streamed live at 4.45pm US Eastern (1.45pm Pacific Time)

“Our team is excited to be joining the growing, vibrant community built at IoT Slam over the last five years. The edge market is at a tipping point and we are grateful to come aboard as a Gold member at this time”, said Ben Davis. “We look forward to this long-term partnership creating even more value in the IoT marketplace for customers.”

IoT MasterClass – The 5 Biggest Mistakes Made When Deploying Industrial Networks (Not all industrial networks are the same – here’s what to consider when deploying IIoT)

Abstract:

IoT data is driving industrial organizations to a whole new level—improving efficiencies, customer satisfaction, and even revenue—but 60% of all IoT initiatives stall at the proof of concept stage. Connecting a vast number of diverse devices brings security risk and increases complexity making IIoT deployments difficult to scale and manage. With the network as the foundation for any IoT deployment, it’s important to get it right. This session will focus on how you can avoid the top 5 mistakes and build a reliable network foundation that scales with the needs of your business. Whether you’re connecting devices in warehouses, manufacturing plants, roadways, on mobile assets, or even simply in outdoor environments like a parking lot, this session is for you. Cisco is a market leader in enterprise and in industrial networking, and we’re excited to share our learnings to help make your project a success.
