Internet of Things: Data Integration Patterns

By: Stewart BondResearch Director, Data Integration and Data Integrity Software, Maureen FlemingProgram Vice President, Integration and Process Automation


This IDC Perspective illustrates the patterns that have emerged, the justification for using each pattern, and the implications of use that may derive additional requirements. It provides guidance to the IoT analytics architect on making decisions about which pattern to use under known constraints.

As the Internet of Things continues to grow and expand, questions about how best to harness the data that flows from sensors and collectors at the edge continue to be asked.

"Some of the most common questions and decisions are focused on 'edge' versus 'central': Where is the data persisted, how is it transmitted to a central processing facility, and is all of it sent or a subset?" says Stewart Bond, director, Data Integration and Integrity Research at IDC. "Common patterns have been observed across multiple IoT solution implementations, each used depending on functional and nonfunctional requirements that constrain the number of viable alternatives."
