This architecture also must be able to leverage data-response processing, as well as the cognitive computing that exists at the network edge and is therefore closer to the sensors and devices that are being monitored and controlled. Furthermore, for a more responsive use of IoT data, the architecture must bind data directly to rules, policies, and behaviors and be able to drive desired behavior back to the devices (for example, self-healing issues with a jet engine in flight). In addition, such a system should provide automated learning of data patterns to automatically augment the rules, policies, and behaviors (for instance, the ability to determine the likelihood of a jet engine failure through shared learning models that have experienced thousands of failures and patterns leading up to them). Moreover, we need to leverage common security and governance procedures and models, as well as common management and usage-based management using inexpensive commodity cloud and non-cloud technology. Finally, this architecture might use containers to encapsulate architecture components. The resulting benefits will be high-performance data processing, direct behavior interactions, and automated learning that will constantly improve the IoT system’s value.
