Building Real-Time IoT Workflows and Applications Utilizing Modern Platforms

Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

Date: Thursday, October 19, 2023

Time: 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET

From predictive maintenance to quality control and asset monitoring, near-real-time data is a key component of IoT workflows. TDWI research indicates that near-real-time analytics can provide crucial insight into customer behaviors, competitive threats, and operational inefficiencies. However, the volume and complexity of such real-time data often make it difficult to deliver against operational analytics requirements using traditional BI tools.

Join this TDWI webinar with experts from Ballard Power Systems, Databricks, and Plotly to learn how to implement IoT and other data-intensive applications using modern Python tools on top of a data lakehouse architecture. Hear about how Ballard Power Systems solved the challenges it faced in operationalizing and scaling its end-to-end data collection, analytics, and visualization workflows due to growing demand for its innovative clean energy fuel cell solutions.

Topics include:

  • What is involved in building and deploying production-grade IoT applications at scale
  • How a unified real-time/batch processing engine can add scalability in a cost-effective way
  • Considerations for leveraging the Python ecosystem and modern open-core platforms for highly advanced workflows
  • Best practices for delivering external customer-facing production-grade data apps with reliable, granular level of analysis
  • How Ballard Power Systems eliminated weeks of lead time to real-time reporting directly in the browser
