These webcasts will demonstrate an end-to-end example of how the Internet of Things really works. It will show how data from home-built sensors (based on Arduinos) can be fed to a gateway (ARM processor running Informix) and stored in an Informix TimeSeries database. The sensor information can then be pushed to the cloud where it can be accessed from mobile devices in real time.
The webcasts will show how Informix TimeSeries is a perfect fit for storing sensor data, and why it can and should be at the center of an Internet of Things solution.
Demonstration of an Informix database running on an ARM-based computer will show how this can be part of an easily-deployed, low-power, and cost-effective embedded solution.

This webcast will describe Informix TimeSeries, why it is such a good fit for an IoT solution, and show how it can be used to efficiently store sensor data. Examples of querying TimeSeries data will be shown and then displayed on a web page served from a Beaglebone ARM computer. The sensor data will be pushed out to a cloud, and an example will be shown using APIs to retrieve the data and display it.

As the 'internet of things' becomes less buzzword and more a part of daily life for many people, the need to handle and store growing quantities of data in small spaces is becoming increasingly important. Since IBM released Informix for the ARM platform, it has become a marriage of two great technologies: the small, fast, low-power, affordable solution of ARM chips paired with the high-performance, low-footprint, low-maintenance, and high-stability of the Informix database engine. In this presentation we will cover the features and benefits of running Informix on ARM, how to begin working with it, and what hardware can be used. This isn't just for hardware developers; anyone who tinkers with hardware, IoT, or could use more portable and flexible computing can benefit from the pairing of ARM and Informix.
This final webcast of the series will focus on installing and setting up Informix. Intended mainly for new adopters of the IBM Informix database product, Tom will demonstrate how this advanced and powerful database engine is simple to install and configure on just about any hardware.
