The First Australian IoT Code of Practice

In this article, I’d like to highlight the importance of the IoT Code of Practice within the national security and privacy context springboarding the Department of Australian Home Affairs’ Vision, Strategy, and Action Plan updates articulated in the HomeAffairsSummit. The theme was maintaining a fine balance for our Integrity, Prosperity, and Security values creating a… Read More

IoT Architecture Non-Functional Challenges for Digital Transformation

There are several challenges related to IoT solutions in digital transformation initiatives. The problems are from multiple angles, such as business, architectural, technical, and operational. In this article, I aim to highlight vital non-functional aspects which require focus in the digital transformation programs. The most common non-functional challenges for IoT are mobility, scalability, capacity, extensibility,… Read More

Solution Considerations for IoT Gateways

The IoT (Internet of Things) Gateways are the raw data processing and transmission devices. These gateways are the communication points between sensors and the Cloud. Data coming from the sensors pass through the Gateways to reach to the Cloud. In the IoT technical literature, and particularly in architectural documents, IoT gateways are also known as… Read More

Standards & Protocols to Consider for High Performance and Cost Effective IoT Solutions

Due to the complexity and comprehensiveness of IoT ecosystems, we need to understand relevant standards and protocols for developing solutions. IoT solutions require new standard devices, protocols, and communication mechanisms. There are several standards developed by various organisations. Therefore, it is essential to understand the IoT standards offered by established organisations such as IEEE, IETF,… Read More

IoT Cloud Integrated with Edge Computing

Sunday sunset from my window while writing this article today We all know the recent growing trends for Cloud Computing. Cloud marked a paradigm shift to Information Technology and Computing field. IoT Cloud is a critical player in the overall data ecosystem. The central role the Cloud plays in IoT is to facilitate the data integration… Read More

Architectural Implications of IoT Data

From an architectural perspective, we need to be aware that IoT devices generate massive amounts of data on an ongoing basis. These data sets go to the full data management life cycle; for example, in storing, analyzing, re-building, and archiving. Took a quick shot while authoring this article in Canberra — Australia Considering the scalability requirements for… Read More

Security and Privacy for IoT Solutions

When comparing all aspects of an IoT (Internet of Things) Solutions, it is clear that security tops the list. In society, there is a great deal of fear surrounding the perception that IoT systems are easily hackable. To an extent, this fear is justifiable as the consequences of hacked IoT devices and services can often… Read More
