Industrial IoT with Jayson Delancey

Sensors are being attached to trains, lightposts, and all kinds of factory equipment. Industrial machinery gives off high volumes of data that can be captured, stored, and processed with machine learning in order to improve workflows and ensure safety.

Jayson Delancey works at GE, which is building tools and systems to manage large IoT deployments. The full stack for enterprise IoT involves tools for managing thousands of sensors; databases for storing all the data that is coming off of these devices; authentication and authorization systems for enforcing security. There is a lot to do.

In this episode, Jayson surveys some of the technology GE is building with Predix, its industrial IoT platform. He also talked about some of the large scale IoT deployments he has seen.


GrammaTech CodeSonar helps development teams improve code quality with static analysis. It helps flag issues early in the development process, allowing developers to release better code faster. CodeSonar can easily be integrated into any development process. CodeSonar performs advanced static analysis of C, C++, Java, and even raw binary code. CodeSonar performs unique dataflow and symbolic execution analysis to aggressively scan for problems in your code. Just like battleships use sonar to detect objects deep underwater, engineers use CodeSonar to detect subtle problems deep within their code. Go to to get your free 30-day trial, exclusively for Software Engineering Daily listeners and unleash the power of advanced static analysis.

Spring Framework gives developers an environment for building cloud native projects. On December 4th-7th, SpringOne Platform is coming to San Francisco. SpringOne Platform is a conference where developers congregate to explore the latest technologies in the Spring ecosystem and beyond. Speakers at SpringOne Platform include Eric Brewer (who created the CAP theorem), Vaughn Vernon (who writes extensively about Domain Driven Design), and many thought leaders in the Spring Ecosystem. SpringOne Platform is the premier conference for those who build, deploy, and run cloud-native software. Software Engineering Daily listeners can sign up with the discount code SEDaily100 and receive $100 off of a Spring One Platform conference pass. I will also be at SpringOne reporting on developments in the cloud native ecosystem. Join me December 4th-7th at the SpringOne Platform conference, and use discount code SEDaily100 for $100 off your conference pass.
