Do you know that we are living the 4th industrial revolution ? It’s happening now ! All the main industrial companies are adopting IoT technologies for that. Is IoT only a buzz word or a real business ? What are the technologies available today for working on that ? Let’s answer to all your questions about that. Technologies are all around us with their influence in all aspects of human society. Let’s see how they are changing our daily life and our interaction with them.


9:00 – 9:30 Attendees Registration

9:30 – 10:00 Welcome and introduction

Antonio Pescapè, Full Professor at University “Federico II” in Naples

10:00 – 10: 50 Industry 4.0 & Agile IoT

Felice Pescatore, Business Agility Consultant

In this talk we will discover the essence of the Industry 4.0, highlighting its potential and the evidence of the impacts on all production fields. We will also take a look at how Agile and Lean are key approaches for approach the fourth industrial revolution in a successfully way, particularly characterized by complex contexts.


10:50 – 11:10 Coffee break (thanks to Red Hat)

11:10 – 12:00 Moving from prototype to product

Valter Minute, Software Engineer at Toradex AG

What are the issues that may prevent your great prototype from becoming a finished product? Prototypes that don’t work in the real world are the IoT equivalent of “it works on my PC” software back in the day. How can you deal with production, find the right hardware solution, think in advance about potential issues, to build something that works out in the field and not just on your desk? Are you ready to deal with the physical world out there? Why so many projects that looked great on kickstarter failed to deliver something that my grandmother could buy and use? What are the challenges faced by devices running on the production floor? Or from those being deployed to the consumer market? The speaker has been involved in many successfully delivered projects and in some failures, and learning from other people’s mistakes is the best way to avoid repeating them.


12:00 – 12:50 Open sourcing the IoT

Paolo Patierno, Senior Software Engineer at Red Hat

Out there there are a lot of “closed” source products for developing messaging and IoT based solutions. What if you want to have more control on your platform ? The EnMasse and Eclipse Hono projects are the answers ! EnMasse is a totally “open” source messaging-as-a-service platform which can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud or even in an hybrid scenario. At the same time it aims to be highly scalable in terms of throughput and the number of connections, based on standard protocols like AMQP 1.0 and MQTT and provides different patterns for messages exchange. It represents the best choice as underlying infrastructure for Eclipse Hono which provides a framework exposing the main IoT APIs like telemetry, event and command & control other then handling devices registration and their authentication. During this session we’ll see the main concepts of these projects and how they fit together in order to provide a complete platform for and end-to-end IoT solution.



12:50 – 14:10 Lunch

14:10 – 15:00 Analyzing Data at Scale with Apache Spark

Nicola Ferraro, Senior Softwate Engineer at Red Hat

The internet of things is one of the most growing phenomena of recent years. According to many benchmarks, each year billions of new “things” are connected to the internet and they generate an incredible amount of data. Storing such amount of data is hard. But a harder problem is: how do we analyze that data? What we do with an enormous amount of data if we cannot extract value from it? In this talk we will explore various architectures and techniques that can be applied to analyze “arbitrarily big” amount of data. Apache Spark will be the platform of choice for such task, being it able to handle both still and streaming data with the same API. When mixed with a platform like OpenShift, Spark can deliver its full power and it becomes able to scale out to the size of the cloud.



15:00 – 15:50 From an end-2-end solution to a reference Industrial IoT pipeline

Lorenzo Maiorfi, CTO at K-Digitale

How K-Digitale’s Starter-Kit, a system at first targeted to Industrial energy monitoring, turned into K-IoT, a full-fledged Industrial IoT reference application, with a clear focus on selecting the best technology for any specific concern: from edge computing policies to optimal time-series based persistence model, always sticking to open standards such as Linux, MQTT, Docker, NodeJS.


15:50 – 16:00 Break

16:00 – 16:50 Mixed Reality & Internet of Things

Clement Giorio, R&D Engineer at Crionet

After an overview of Mixed Reality and a comparison with Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, we will look at some scenarios that exploit IoT technologies.
In particular we will see how to use MQTT with Microsoft HoloLens.


16:50 – 17:00 Closing day
