Internet of Things (IoT) is the in thing that no sane company would neglect.
BlackBerry after its recent smart phone is also into IoT and has a complete
platform. Main vertical applications targeted are automotive and asset
tracking for now.
Here is about the platform in Blackberry's own words.
"The BlackBerry® IoT Platform is here to give you that control, providing a
cloud-based solution that lets you build and manage IoT applications and
devices in a secure, efficient, and scalable way."
Security: via BlackBerry cryptography and Key Management technology-The IoT
platform is hosted in the secure, global BlackBerry infrastructure.
Scalability: Massive scalability at every layer, instantaneous data indexing
with no bottlenecks and redundant long-term storage.
Efficiency: Superb messaging both event-driven and store-and-forward

IoT depends to a large part on the availability of custom hardware of sensors
that can be efficiently manufactured with exacting tolerances in its
specifications. Smart Parts manufacturing will be one of the key technologies
required to address the IoT 3D Sensors and 3D Antennae.
Optomec which manfuactures production grade 3D printers can manufacture parts
both in plastics and metals.
Here is a picture showing some of the smart stuff that can be made using
Optomec 3D Printers.
The parts made with additive printing uses the Aerosol Jet Process (no

You can use Intel XDK together with Intel Collaboration Suite for Web RTC to
build the real time communication apps.
With Intel Collaboration Suite for Web RTC (Intel CS for WebRTC )it is
possible to build apps for real time communication over the web.
You need to use the Intel CS for WebRTC SDK built on top of W3C standard for
WebRTC. You can create apps for broadcast, peer-to-peer and apps for
To cater to the major OSs and HTML, the SDK is available in four versions one

The Internet of Things may be appearing more rapidly than anyone thinks, and
connected cars will appear first and make an even greater impact than
self-driving cars. Many car manufacturers and software vendors are actively
working to make this possible. In addition to car-to-car communication and
car-to-internet/cloud communication, communication between smartphones and
vehicles infotainment systems is also vigorously pursued.
MirrorlLink Protocol, which is presently in version 1.1, allows third-party
apps to board screens in automobiles. It's an interoperability standard
It was quite easy to connect to SQL Azure using IIS 7 Database Manager in my
Windows 7 machine. Given the fact that the products are still in initial
stages this is very reassuring.
The messages that comes from SQL Azure to IIS 7 Database Server's interface
are at best confusing but if you can sweat it out (Keep trying!!!) you will
see some light. Other featrures(!) of the connectivity are slow response |No
Here is a screen shot of my first attempt at running a stored procedure that
I created on MyAzureConnection in IIS7 Database Manager.
