Designing information models for distributed applications Reply

The technologists in edge environment spend significant time tuning the network links, but they often miss opportunities to make optimal use of available bandwidth by not focusing (enough) on tuning the data model. This (relative) lack of attention to the data model, while regrettable, can be better understood if we account that until recently, edge devices were weak (could not collect or process enough information), few (not choking the network, though bandwidth is always an issue), or not (richly) context-aware (taking advantage of other information available on the network) The science of tuning the information model for a distributed application can benefit from the advances in building information models for the enterprise applications.
