During the past decade, businesses have been implementing IoT applications by connecting devices/“things” on their internal network (InTRAnet) to provide better customer service, reduce costs and more. These businesses are converting the vast amounts of data generated into actionable insights by applying advanced analytics technologies designed specifically to handle the requirements of Real-time Big Data analytics.
With more and more devices being connected to the InTERnet, the opportunity for additional value is growing rapidly as the projected number devices connected broadly across all of IoT grows exponentially.
To truly take advantage of the massive amounts of real-time data in the emerging IoT world, we need to transform our thinking, processes, and infrastructure to act in seconds...not hours and days.
This presentation will discuss the opportunities, challenges, and solutions related to analyzing large amounts of IOT data.
It’s no surprise that creating developer-friendly APIs is a daunting task: from strategizing on evangelism techniques to the differences between the enterprise and open web, there are many ways to succeed and at the same time, many ways to fail.
Steve Marx (Developer Advocate at Dropbox) will moderate a panel consisting of Jason Harmon (Platform Architect at Paypal), Neil Mansilla (Director of Platform and Partnerships at Mashery), David Hu (Developer Advocate at Foursquare) and Seb Taveau (Chief Developer Evangelist - Open API at MasterCard) to explore the best ways to create user-friendly APIs. They'll take into consideration the various elements that go into building applications and evaluate the developer experience as a whole. With over 50 years of combined experience in the developer community, this panel of experts has the background and expertise across industries to dig into the myriad of tools it takes to be successful and the various approaches to API strategies. They'll share real-world examples that bring to life the development experience.
As financial data APIs become increasingly accessible and easy to integrate, there's been an explosion in financial innovation happening outside of traditional financial sectors that's disrupting the way people interact with their finances. No longer do consumers need to write out checks or bother with bank transfers -- Venmo makes peer-to-peer payments as easy as a text message. No longer do small businesses in need of capital need to spend business hours at a bank branch and risk the embarrassment of being turned down for a loan -- Kabbage provides small business lending online, and in a matter of minutes.
This presentation will cover how the development of financial APIs allows businesses and individuals of all sizes to access financial data that has traditionally been controlled by large, established banks, and how this is changing the way we handle our money. It will also discuss what this explosion of innovation in the non-bank sector signals for the future of finance – and what this future will look like.
