RESEARCH PAPER: Software Designed Measurement & Control

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at a rapid pace and is generating explosive amounts of data that must be gathered, analyzed, managed, and turned into business insights. The entire IoT value chain is comprised of devices that are both intelligent and connected; the complexity of this ecosystem has significantly increased the demands of test, measurement, and embedded design tools. In addition to the added complexity, the next generation of users expect more: connectivity from anywhere, intuitive user experience (UX), industry specific capabilities, and the ability to deal with Big Data challenges such as data ingress, data health management, and Big Data analytics.
