Protect your resources with the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on
In this article, I will show you how to develop an OAuth-protected resource application in IBM Bluemix. With Bluemix, you can develop your applications with OAuth by connecting the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on to your applications and coding endpoints to enable authorization and authentication to secure your resources. The resource application consumes the Mongo service and the Bluemix App User Registry Add-on, and provides a REST service that other client applications can request to consume. The REST service is protected by the App User Registry Add-on, so the client applications must provide the appropriate authorization information. I will also cover how to develop a client application that requires authorization during the request for protected resources. All authorization and authentication processes follow the OAuth 2.0 specification.

Build an app to read sensor data and predict failure using Informix TimeSeries service
Preventing problems costs less than reacting to them. Prevention implies some knowledge of where things are going, and predicting where things will be in the future requires some knowledge of where things have been in the past. This is where IBM Informix TimeSeries comes into play. Not only does it provide a means of recording what has happened, it is easy to use to predict what might happen. In an internet-of-things context, any sensor can record its information into a time series data set. This demonstration is a simple simulation of a refrigerator, cloud-based storage and analytics, and monitoring software to alert the user if the device is approaching unsafe temperature limits.
