This webcast will explore some of the ARM-based computers that are available, and describe why ARM is such a good fit for an IoT solution. Tom will show how simple it is to install a full version of the IBM Informix database server on a low-power, affordable ARM-based Linux computer, and why the power and simplicity of Informix makes it ideal for an embedded IoT gateway.

This is the first webcast in our series and will introduce Informix and the Internet of Things and give an overview of the different components. It will include a practical demonstration of data from sensors being stored on a Beaglebone Black ARM computer and pushed to the cloud. This webcast will show how simple sensor data can be read using an Arduino-based microcontroller and conclude with the data being received on the Beaglebone gateway.
