Note - The book was last edited and updated on 15th December 2015. Now includes bonus chapter on Cognitive IoT. For complete details about the book,visit http://enterpriseiotbook.com. "Internet of Things is a vision where every object in the world has the potential to connect to the Internet and provide their data so as to derive actionable insights on its own or through other connected objects" The object can be anything - a vehicle, machinery, airport, city, people, phone or even a shoe. From a connected vehicle solution, you can understand the driver behaviour and vehicle usage patterns, from a connected machines solution you can determine when do machines need servicing, from a connected airport solution you can understand many things like - how much time the passenger needs to wait for check-in and security, from an operating perspective it could help to optimize the passenger movement and ensure the right equipments are available at the right time to ensure quick serviceability and finally say, from a connected footwear solution you can understand how much you have run so far and your app can automatically purchase a new pair of shoes based on the remaining shoe life. As we can see, it's not just about connectivity, but how to use the connected data in context of your application or for that matter other connected solutions to derive insights which can't be uncovered before. Today we are seeing data (both structured and unstructured) growing by leaps and bounds available through mediums like blogs, social media, transactional systems etc. With advent of IoT, you will see a large volume of raw data emitting from devices like sensors. Such huge and complex set of data, if not attended to, can go wasted and opportunity lost in terms of building smart environment around us. While focusing on issue of addressing this web of complexity, often understanding the real benefit of IoT is lost and most importantly how to get started on IoT. In this book, our focus will be to provide a clear vision on Internet of Things and everything you should know to get started on applying and building Enterprise IoT applications in any industry. The concepts listed down in the book are applicable across industries. Till date, it's difficult to find a single perspective of what does an Enterprise IoT stack actually mean and our intent is to provide an applicability guide that can be taken as reference for building any IoT application. In the course of the book, we would describe some of the key components of Internet of Things through our Enterprise IoT stack. We would look at how to incrementally apply IoT transformations to build connected products in various industries. At the end, we would understand the technical strategy and how to build IoT applications using IoT cloud offerings from Microsoft, IBM, and Amazon and even build one using open source technologies. To summarize, as part of the book we would cover the following - * A detail overview of key components of Internet of Things and most comprehensive view of an Enterprise IoT stack. * How to apply IoT in context of real world applications by covering detailed use cases on manufacturing, automotive and home automation. * Understand the technical strategy and how to implement IoT applications using Microsoft, IBM and Amazon IoT offerings and various open source technologies and map it to our Enterprise IoT Stack.

Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most hyped concept in today's technology world. However, with so much hype, still there is a lot of confusion on what does Internet of Things actually mean and what it takes to build IoT applications and how to apply it in various industries. There exist many definitions on "Internet of Things" and even getting on to a same terminology and definition seems difficult nowadays. We have seen multiple definitions over a period of time, such as 'Internet of Everything', 'Internet of your Things', 'Internet of People' and the list goes on. They all mean the same, so let's start with a simple definition of Internet of Things. "Internet of Things is a vision where every object in the world has the potential to connect to the Internet and provide their data so as to derive actionable insights on its own or through other connected objects" The object can be anything - a vehicle, machinery, airport, city, people, phone or even a shoe. From a connected vehicle solution, you can understand the driver behaviour and vehicle usage patterns, from a connected machines solution you can determine when do machines need servicing, from a connected airport solution you can understand many things like - how much time the passenger needs to wait for check-in and security, from an operating perspective it could help to optimize the passenger movement and ensure the right equipments are available at the right time to ensure quick serviceability and finally say, from a connected footwear solution you can understand how much you have run so far and your app can automatically purchase a new pair of shoes based on the remaining shoe life. As we can see, it's not just about connectivity, but how to use the connected data in context of your application or for that matter other connected solutions to derive insights which can't be uncovered before. Today we are seeing data (both structured and unstructured) growing by leaps and bounds available through mediums like blogs, social media, transactional systems etc. With advent of IoT, you will see a large volume of raw data emitting from devices like sensors.

Before we start with a formal introduction to blockchain, let us take you for a moment to a possible future that should realize sooner than we expect. You are on a vacation outside your home country, at a shopping mall and receive a notification saying there is a sale on luxurious watches. You haven't been to this store before. You pick up a watch and you wonder if the watch is genuine and worth the price. You start a mobile application and place it on the watch. The application recognizes the watch and displays the complete lifecycle of the watch like where it was manufactured and the GPS coordinates, where it was designed, what is the warranty period, how much custom duty you need to pay (if any) if you bring this watch back to your home country and even showing and comparing similar watches. You purchase the watch based on these details and now feel even more connected to the watch brand and establish a trust with the shopping store for selling genuine products. Let's consider a complex B2B process like an international trade finance which currently takes days to complete the trade process. If the entire workflow is automated, self regulated and equipped with enough consensus between various parties carrying out the trade, it can provide a window of opportunity for new buyers and sellers to handshake, implement and execute trade seamlessly with lot of trust and confidence. In the above scenarios that we described earlier and possibly in all our future applications, data would be a central point for businesses, consumers, and even system interaction. Now in a data-driven world, you need to establish trust and compliance between parties, you need governance, regulation and accountability through automated workflow and digital contracts rather than central authority and finally a piece of technology that can enable to realize this goal. Once these basic parameters are enabled, it opens endless opportunities to move any value (from services to digital assets) across the network in a secure and transparent way. The technology enabler that can aid in realizing this opportunity is blockchain. We view blockchain as an enabler to provide consensus on data. The consensus can be between B2B, B2C or C2C. We call blockchain an enabler, as blockchain alone will not lead to realizing the opportunities we talked about earlier.The combinatorial power of blockchain, smart contracts, and technologies like IoT & Artificial Intelligence would enable to deliver value-driven intelligent applications. While we described our vision, we are probably at the first generation of blockchain implementation where technologies are still evolving, and use cases are being realized. Through this book, we aim to provide a reference guide for building blockchain applications. The book comprises of three chapters. In Chapter 1, we will provide a neutral vision and architecture for blockchain, without getting into vendor specific details. In chapter 2 and 3, we will demonstrate the working of two widely used blockchain implementations - Ethereum and IBM Hyperledger Fabric respectively. To summarize, as part of the book, we will cover the following - 1. A vendor-neutral architecture for building any blockchain applications. 2. A detailed introduction to Ethereum and its core components. We will set up a local instance of Ethereum and build end-to-end application on Ethereum blockchain using a hands-on approach. At the end, we would cover topics around extension to Ethereum blockchain, integration with the external world and the future of smart contracts. 3. A detailed introduction to IBM Hyperledger Fabric and its core components. We would cover the enterprise capabilities provided by Fabric 1.0. At the end, we would set up a local instance of Fabric and build an end-to-end application on Fabric using a hands-on approach.
