Event Broker PaaS Model Compelling for IoT Environments
This means that ebPaaS-based automation enlists machine learning at the point where IoT messaging is at its busiest, rather than in an in-house application cloud. This makes IoT system performance that much more efficient, and enables IoT systems to make decisions on their own.
An airport security system could, for instance, not only scan faces in the crowd for persons of interest to the Department of Homeland Security but also find lost children and identify travelers in physical distress, and could, through ebPaaS, request the appropriate resources.
Setting New Standards
One potential feature of ebPaaS is the logging of events blockchain-style, in permanent, append-only immutability. This is easily achieved, and greatly enhances the integrity of processes that service many organizations at once (particularly in health care, where coordination of patient data and institutional trust are high priorities). Event broker platforms make this kind of event capture practical.
Finally, the capture of event activity in ebPaaS centralizes the monitoring of processes that are geographically disparate and spread across multiple systems, making it more convenient than it has ever been to analyze such processes improve them. Deploying ebPaaS may be the best step toward large-scale automation and practical analytics across wide-area-network operations.
Not all ebPaaS middleware vendors offer all of this functionality, though the major players such as Solace, ArcSight and Appccelerate are scrambling to bundle in as many of them as possible. It’s a foregone conclusion, however, that ebPaaS is on the rise, and that all of this and more is just around the corner.
