    What is RE?

    Requirements Engineering (RE) can be summarized as a set of activities that ensures a team is building the right product. In the field of Software Engineering, hence, it seeks the correct and suitable software deliverable.

    Now, what do correct and adequate mean? Correct is a deliverable that meets stakeholder expectations, i.e. that it realizes their vision of the product, while suitable relates to whether it is fit for purpose.

  • IoT Bridges as Microservices in DC/OS

    23 August 2016
    By Rafael Zubairov, Senior Architect

    IoT technologies have become a natural part of our life. And therefore the number of IoT protocols has grown exponentially. Device manufacturers (e.g. wearables, sensors, or temperature / light / environment controllers) use their own protocols for communication and cloud enablement. The cloud infrastructure can also use custom protocols of a higher level to receive device state updates and management information.

    Some platforms use low-level protocols (e.g. COAP) to interact with devices and MQTT to communicate with a central hub. Others use their own standards, built upon HTTP or WebSockets. Central hubs in turn can use a variety of protocols and methods for marshalling data. And imagine the mashup of all those protocols to connect to external services.

  • DeviceHive Predictive Maintenance Application with SAP

    13 July 2016
    By Gleb Popov, Senior Java Developer at DataArt

    The DeviceHive project development team has explored the possibility of integrating the DeviceHive data platform with SAP Hana DB. DeviceHive allows third party IoT device developers to concentrate on business tasks and the distinctive features of a project by shifting the data and device management to the platform. SAP Hana DB provides analytical tools integrated with data storage.

    This approach can be used as a reference architecture solution based on devices that use Ubuntu Core. In our example, the devices collect data from the sensors and transmit it to the cloud for further analysis.

    The DeviceHive platform allows us to collect data sent by devices in various ways. One of the most convenient ways that is available immediately after server installation is to use the data stream in an Apache Kafka server. The data flow available from Kafka topics contains device notifications. Aggregation and data analysis received from the sensors on the fly makes it possible to create a real-time monitoring system.

    By Constantine Mars, Senior Android Developer at DataArt

    Introduction

    The DeviceHive team has released a new version of their gateway for Android N. DeviceHive Android Gateway for Bluetooth Low Energy devices makes it possible to connect multiple Bluetooth Low Energy devices to DeviceHive IoT clouds through a single Android device. Now it’s possible to connect sensors, buttons, indicators, wearables, and any other BLE devices to prototype solutions even faster.

    All that’s needed is to start the gateway, connect it to the device, and send a command (or subscribe to sensor data notifications).

    Here is a presentation showing common use cases for the DeviceHive Gateway on Android.

    This quick tutorial will help to start prototyping the solutions faster.

    The third Phocuswright Europe Conference was held at the Convention Centre Dublin on the 10-12  of May  2016 and drew the continent’s top players to exchange views on the trends in technology for the European travel market. The theme was “Unsettled yet Undeterred”, reflecting the backdrop of Europe’s bumpy economic recovery and reduced spending on travel.

    The travel industry DNA is changing, with important shifts happening from one year’s Phocuswright to the next.

    Stephen Kaufer, CEO, Tripadvisor, emphasized the company’s shifting focus from a review resource to one that accommodates instant bookings. KAYAK and Google have also introduced direct bookings.
