IoT and Agriculture: Examples & Applications

Oct 20, 2016 | by Hudson Ludvigson, Senior Software Engineer | Tags: Internet of Things

The concept of Precision Agriculture consumes a great deal of human capital in the study, development, and expansion of the Precision Ag ecosystem, as well as a great deal of a farmer’s time in practice. Several key disciplines are required in the Precision Ag ecosystem, and while Big Data is getting a lot of the attention lately, understanding how the data is acquired can provide a greater understanding of a farm. This brings us to the Internet of Things (IoT) and its practice in Agriculture.

Three Things I learned at the Strata + Hadoop Conference

Oct 13, 2016 | by Scott Berry, Vice President Professional Services | Tags: Big Data

Two weeks ago, Matt Coventon, ISE’s Big Data Practice Lead, and I went to New York City for three days to attend the annual Strata + Hadoop Big Data Conference. If you are not familiar with it, Strata + Hadoop World is the largest Big Data conference of its kind. The conference brings together data scientists, software engineers, innovators, executives, and software providers who want to explore and learn more about the latest emerging data technologies. I am a relative newbie when it comes to Big Data, so my objective was to go and learn as much as I could about the market and the technologies.

Currently Innovative Software Engineering has been been working with the University of Minnesota School of Nursing to develop a mobile app to provide support and information to pregnant women and their families experiencing major complications during pregnancy. The project, called Preparing Heart and Mind, will feature evidence-based content developed through research conducted by Dr. Anne McKechnie, Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Karen Pridham, Professor Emerita at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, as well as other relevant sources.
