IBM Informix and the Internet of Things
IoT architectures are evolving into three tier environments where processing is required at the edge, in devices, at collection points, in gateways – and at the center. However in practice, not all devices need to be smart, and not all environments require more than two tiers: it will depend on the application. This whitepaper focuses on the need to support a homogeneous processing environment. That is, it will be preferable if processing in all tiers of the IoT is consistent and compatible and discuss the implications of this consistency for database selection.
