IoT applications have to cover the complete value-chain that has sensors-actuators at one end to cloud based operations and integration with existing enterprise operations. While the internet based segment of the ecosystem is stable and supports open and heterogeneous connectivity, not the Sensors-Gateway-Internet part of the system. In fact, this segment is quite fluid in terms of standardization of communication protocols governing the sensor nodes and networks. This workshop highlights the issues developers must be aware of when building robust enterprise applications besides the detailed design considerations, what’s available today, what’s possible, etc. For example, they will need to be aware when choosing to incorporate a protocol if that is likely to get accepted widely, so that the applications developed do not need to be changed in a short while.
Benefits/Takeaways for the attendees

Debasis received his BE degree in Electronics Engineering from the Jadavpur University, Kolkata in 1968. His M Tech was from IIT, Kanpur in Electrical Engineering (Computer Science Major) in 1979.
Debasis worked in DRDO for sixteen years in advanced defence communication systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, satellite remote sensing including earth stations, multi-spectral sensors, image analysis, etc. He spent the following twenty two years in the Indian Software Industry working in senior business manager positions with software industry majors like the HCL, PCS, Rolta (twice), Neilsoft, Genesys International and technology companies like DG2L technologies(twice), Zintec Software, Parsec Technologies( US stint), Global Edifice, etc. He has been a keen trainer and personally led the training of juniors in these high technology areas. Development methodologies, processes, QA, architecture, software engineering, system engineering and effective project management have been his focus areas. Some of the coveted clients for whom he has delivered high-end technology program include Toshiba Landis-Gyr, HCL, Patni, etc.
He supervised a computer development lab that developed products for the computer series Horizon and Magnum and IBM PC for HCL for five years in the early days of computer industry in India. He worked with PCS too, for five years building their engineering services division that provided off-shore
