ICONET PI Control and Management Platform (Final)
The goals of the PoC Integration Platform are to provide a flexible, cloud enabled digital workbench which will facilitate the technical research actions in the project. The platform provides a secure enclave where PI Services can be deployed, developed, tested and integrated. As the development moves to the final stages, the focus shifts more to integration actions and ensuring that the living lab scenarios are digitally represented within the PoC environment. This spans from ensuring access to the relevant datasets to multiple deployments of single services as each has been configured for a particular scenario.
With these core goals met, IBM elected to expand the scope of the requirements and has investigated the potential usage paradigms from a cloud and deployment perspective that will likely exist by the time the PI becomes a global reality. Deployment paradigms based on hybrid cloud, multi cloud, edge and fog computing were considered within the PI context to provide a roadmap to potential real-world implementations.
