Hazelcast Jet 0.5 – New high-level API increases developer productivity for real-time IoT, big data applications

By Zenobia Hegde

Hazelcast, the open source in-memory data grid (IMDG) with tens of thousands of installed clusters and over 39 million server starts per month, announced the 0.5 release of Hazelcast Jet – an application embeddable, distributed computing platform for fast processing of big data sets.

New functionality in Hazelcast Jet 0.5 includes the Pipeline API for general purpose programming of batch and stream processing, and fault tolerance using snapshotting with the integrated Hazelcast IMDG.

The overall focus of the latest release is to increase developer productivity via an extremely simple and intuitive API. Jet is a single library with no dependencies which is therefore easily embedded and deployed, removing the need for multiple systems. Typical application use cases include online trades, sensor updates in IoT architectures, real-time fraud detection, system log events, in-store e-commerce systems and social media platforms.

The Pipeline API is the primary programming interface of Hazelcast Jet for batch and stream processing, making it more appealing to a wider Java audience. This is a major enhancement to the Hazelcast Jet low-level Core API which uses directed acyclic graphs (DAG) to model data flow – allowing detailed DAG assembly of processing jobs.

The new Pipeline API is easier to use and provides developers with tools to compose batch computations from building blocks such as filters, aggregators and joiners. The Java 8 Stream API is also available in Hazelcast Jet 0.5, a well-known and popular API in the Java community which supports functional-style operations on streams of elements. The key point is that ANY Java developer will find the new Pipeline API familiar and productive.

Greg Luck, CEO of Hazelcast, said: “Since its first release Jet has put the Fast in Fast Big Data with performance up to 15 times faster than Spark and Flink. In this release we have been working on bringing Hazelcast’s legendary programming simplicity to Jet, which we think we have now achieved with the Pipeline API. Programmers, start your Jet engines.”

Also new is fault tolerance using distributed in-memory snapshots – in Hazelcast Jet 0.5 snapshots are distributed across the cluster and held in multiple replicas to provide redundancy. Jet is now able to tolerate multiple faults such as node failure, network partition or job execution failure. Snapshots are periodically created and backed up.

If there is a node failure Jet uses the latest state snapshot and automatically restarts all jobs that contain the failed node as a job participant. No additional infrastructure, such as distributed file system or external snapshot storage, is necessary to ensure Hazelcast Jet is fault tolerant out of the box.

With this release, Jet is fully integrated with Hazelcast IMDG for sources, sinks and enrichment. It also has streaming as well as batch integrations. Jet benefits from being integrated with Hazelcast IMDG, accessing an elastic, in-memory storage capability. Using data already held in IMDG versus external sources gives a 5 times performance enhancement. We expect our millions of IMDG users to start leveraging Jet’s capabilities to process the data they already hold in IMDG.

Libelium releases a cloud programming software service for the IoT

By Zenobia Hegde

At Smart City Expo in Barcelona (Spain), Libelium has unveiled a cloud software service to enhance its wireless sensor platform with intelligence based solutions. The Spanish company has released the first Programming Cloud Service that will reduce development costs, increase security and speed up the time to market of Waspmote and Waspmote Plug & Sense! users by removing both the code training and the “try and test” stages in the deployment process.

On the one hand, the new service facilitates the access to develop new IoT projects to technology companies that do not count with a special engineering team for the IoT. On the other hand, the new Programming Cloud Service is thought too for those companies that want to save time and resources getting the IoT technology ready for their applications.

The new strategic tool allows to create binary files for the Libelium’s Plug & Sense! sensor nodes in minutes by just filling in an online form with all the working options like sleeping cycle, data to include in the sensor frame, Cloud destination URL, networking options, etc. “After more than 10 years of experience in one of the most complete IoT programming API’s in the world, we have realised that our clients looks for simplicity: they just want to use the full programming potential in one click.

This is how we came with the idea of relaying all this complexity to a Cloud service that could create code and compile it for them in seconds”, David Gascón, Libelium’s CTO, points out.

Due to the importance of the security in the IoT, it is crucial for companies managing real deployments to have the ability to configure nodes correctly and easily with the appropriate encryption options.

The Programming Cloud Service creates the binary files based on solid and tested source codes generated during years by the Libelium engineering team. Then it generates the algorithm specified by the user and compile it on the Cloud using the last version of the API and libraries. This way users may be confident that all the binaries generated contains all the improvements of the latest API versions.

“Smart Cities projects based on IoT need less costs and more simplicity on development stages to see the light and Libelium is working in both objectives to ease the IoT really take off”, Alicia Asín, Libelium’s CEO.

Alicia Asín

With this launching, Libelium offers different types of licenses for small, medium and large IoT deployments. Licenses titled as “Basic” and “PRO”, that enable the management from 5 to 20 nodes, are perfect to create binary files one by one. Besides, “Elite” licenses allow to create up to 100 binary files in batch by just one click. With the new service no SDK’s, API’s or compilers are needed any more. “Now you can program the sensor nodes using a mobile phone or a tablet, as just a web browser is required to fill the programming options form”, Libelium’s CTO says.

Anyway, the libraries and compiler keep accessible for experienced developers who want to keep coding and using all the API options and the flexibility of programming their own binaries.

In the near future, Libelium will offer on its cloud services platform new licenses for the management of MySignals […]

Global customer engagement spending by utilities is expected to exceed $5 billion in 2026

By Zenobia Hedge

A new report from Navigant Research analyses the market for utility customer engagement solutions across the web, call center, billing, and outage notification segments, providing forecasts through 2026.

Today’s electric utility customers expect more insight into their energy usage, as well as a service experience on par with that of industry leaders such as Amazon, Google, Netflix, and Uber. Changing tools for engagement, such as online, mobile, and social networks, are helping utilities to meet those expectations in the face of the most competitive environment that the electric power industry has ever experienced.

“Engaging customers used to entail sending a monthly energy bill, dealing with high bill complaints, and finding resolutions for customers experiencing power outages,” says Michael Kelly, research analyst with Navigant Research. “Today, utilities must work to engage customers proactively through multiple channels—and for multiple purposes.”

Michael Kelly

Websites with sophisticated self-service capabilities, mobile applications, and online chat support are just a few of the engagement channels now considered standard, according to the report. Investment and support from senior utility leadership is growing as utilities adapt to evolving customer expectations and explore new technologies aimed at improving the customer experience.

The report, Customer Management and Experience Technologies, examines the drivers and challenges related to customer engagement solutions. The study focuses on four key segments for applications and technologies aimed at improving the customer experience: web, call centre, billing, and outage notification. Global market forecasts, segmented by region, technology segment, type, and category, extend through 2026.

The report also provides in-depth profiles of key vendors in the customer engagement market and examines several utility deployment case studies. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
