At Blockchain Expo North America, Information Builders, a provider in business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data management solutions, announced the launch of iWay 8, its suite of solutions for data application creation and business-to-business (B2B) integration.
The latest version enhances usability, facilitates IoT data for big data insights, and offers integrated support for permissioned blockchain applications, enabling companies to speed up implementations and capitalise on the technology’s potential.
The launch of iWay 8 includes a new version of iWay Service Manager (iSM), which provides support for permissioned blockchain applications, enabling organisations to efficiently realise the benefits of blockchain. The technology lays the foundation for a quickly deployable, easily maintainable, service- and event-oriented blockchain architecture, as well as a mechanism to make configuration more intuitive. iSM can acquire messages from external entities, existing applications, or other sources, process them and share the results into another application through Information Builders’ blockchain integration.
Unique blockchain benefits include:
Reduced development time and cost by incorporating iSM into the blockchain workflow
Integration with peers on the network and the ability to transfer posts and queries between peers and iSM
Enhanced workflow process visibility with real-time exchange of events and documents
In addition, when coupled with Information Builders’ WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform, iWay simplifies and accelerates the integration of enterprise blockchain applications, allowing companies to act on information more effectively.
Along with blockchain support, iWay 8 offers new functionality for integrating IoT and big data and making this information available for consumption and analytics. With data management technology that natively ingests, cleanses, unifies, and integrates big data from IoT, the solutions ensure high-quality data that users can quickly act on to drive the business forward.
Additional features of iWay 8 include:
Intuitive design time: A modern and user-friendly design time environment that expedites development and enhances usability
Collaborative team development: Multiple team members can collaborate on application development, regardless of physical location, while ensuring the integrity and control of the artifacts
Microservices: iWay provides all the capabilities companies need to support a microservices architecture, enabling them to reduce costs and increase agility
Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders said, “iWay 8 provides the functionality organisations need to make large amounts of information available for consumption and analytics – a critical capability given the growing volume of data generated on a daily basis.
Its modern, user-friendly design time environment and collaboration features empower users to be more efficient and effective and reduce the time involved in turning raw data into insights. These capabilities, paired with iWay’s blockchain support, position companies for success as we enter the next frontier of information management.”

With the billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices projected to come on-stream over the next few years, questions are arising as to just where the bandwidth and radio channels are going to come from to make it all work.
The sensors need to send their likely increasingly voluminous data back to networks wirelessly to be processed.
But there’s a finite amount of radio spectrum available, and much of it is already allocated to incumbent primary users, such as public safety agencies. Other spectrum is dedicated to mobile network operators who have licensed chunks of it. Some is leftover in the millimeter frequencies, which is thus far pretty much untested in the real world — it’s going to be used for 5G in the future.

Last week, Amazon announced a new voluntary service that allows its own contracted delivery personnel to temporarily access customers’ homes through a new service dubbed “Amazon Key” which begins Wednesday, November 8.
Privacy experts wonder what kind of avenue putting such a camera in the home could mean for law enforcement, particularly given last year’s episode when Amazon refused to help law enforcement in a murder case in Arkansas. There, investigators attempted to get the company to hand over data collected by a nearby Alexa. If that instance is any indication, Amazon may resist a legal demand to open up an Amazon Key lock.
Beyond concerns about the police, many on Twitter are fundamentally uncomfortable with Amazon Key.

Aylya Networks, an IoT Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) company announced that it has raised $60M in Series D financing. The round was led by Run Liang Tai Fund (RLT) and Sunsea Telecommunications Co. Ltd.
The company doubled down on the funding path as it previously raised $39M Series C in June last year. The current financing brings Ayla Network’s total equity funding to approximately $124M since its launch in 2010.
The company will use the latest proceeds to expand platform capabilities and to grow the ecosystem which includes application providers and channel partners.
Ayla focuses on the leading product manufacturers enabling them to make their products internet-connected via Ayla Network’s PaaS. Its end-to-end software runs across devices, the cloud, and applications to provide internet connectivity and device analytics. The Wi-Fi modules of leading hardware vendors have pre-built Ayla embedded agent. The Ayla Cloud provides a managed service where customers can track their ‘connected deployments’.
Ayla has adopted a ‘mobile-first’ approach. The company offers mobile application libraries containing APIs. The APIs can be used to create iOS and Android apps for Ayla-enabled products.
Another ‘platform-based’ company connecting consumer products to the internet is Evrythng. It raised $24.8 million Series B funding in March this year.
