As a leading innovator of event-driven, codeless, distributed systems, ControlBEAM is honored to be selected to the Innovation Showcase Class of 2020 by the Telecom Council. We are leading the evolution from the concept of Software-Defined Everything to Event-Defined Everything™.
ControlBEAM was awarded its sixth U.S. patent on unique methods incorporated within its BEAM RT™ portable runtime system. BEAM RT interprets and executes model-based applications at runtime, removing the need to code and compile applications. Nested grids within grids defining portable (BEAMable™) apps and app frameworks are automatically transformed into working applications supporting any data-centric, edge-to-cloud use case within a digital world.Learn More ＞
ControlBEAM is contributing to the enhancements of GS1's EPCIS event format to support Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems, including RFID and sensor-captured data, Blockchain integration, JSON syntax, REST bindings, and alignment with CloudEvents and BEAMevents. EPCIS and its companion standard, the Core Business Vocabulary (CBV), have been adopted as ISO standards.
ControlBEAM is helping the Object Management Group (OMG) develop a retail ontology that aligns with a cross-industry commerce model and provides retail-specific extensions. OMG's Retail Task Force is developing and promoting standardized retail business models and practices that foster a shared understanding of retail business principles, terminology and data between retailers and their suppliers.
ControlBEAM supports EdgeX Foundry's leadership role in moving industrial IoT intelligence to the edge, where it belongs. To accelerate adoption of EdgeX, platform architects from the Group are providing guidance on implementing ontology-based, event-driven architecture within its framework to provide the highest level of interoperablity across IoT platforms and industries. Our team is also providing real-world IoT use cases in retail, commerce, and transportation for EdgeX testbeds.
ControlBEAM is contributing to CloudEvents work group, evolving a common event format to provide interoperability across services, platforms and systems. Platform architects from the Group are guiding the evolution to align with ontology-based, event-driven architecture and support supply chain execution systems. Other companies contributing to CloudEvents include IBM, Microsoft, Google, Oracle, SAP, Red Hat, VMware, PayPal, Alibaba, and Huawei. CloudEvents is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
ControlBEAM is contributing thought leadership to create cross-industry digital twin reference architectures. Digital Twin Consortium™ coalesces industry, government and academia to drive consistency in vocabulary, architecture, security and interoperability of digital twin technology. It advances the use of digital twin technology from aerospace to natural resources.
ControlBEAM is contributing its reference ontology-based, event-driven architecture to the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The reference architecture aligns with IIC's Industrial Internet Architecture Framework publication and the business, usage, functional, and implementation view points discussed in IIC's IIOT Reference Architecture.Learn More ＞
ControlBEAM is aligning building ontology concepts with Brick Schema and including semantic identifiers from Project Haystack within the BEAMable Building Ontology. The ASHRAE BACnet committee, Project Haystack and the Brick initiative are actively collaborating to integrate Haystack tagging and Brick data modeling concepts into the new proposed ASHRAE Standard 223P for semantic tagging of building data.Learn More ＞
