@kq4ym: Great question. Controls have been local for the most part. Work is underway to make them entirely information driven so that arrays of machines can be controlled remotely. That is a big part of the industrial internet project

The term fog certainly conjures up images of uncertainty and invisibility, but the article just inform well as to what it's all about. I wonder too not only about the ability to collect the data quickly, and analyze it but to have the ability to make controls adjust to the changing circumstances very quickly as well.

Ahhh, now I get it.  Thanks, that explanation helps.  Now I see Fog as a good name, now that I get why it was named that.

@Kishore, excellent explanation! I knew the differences all along.

@Terry Sweeney: I understand why you are uncomfortable with the term. Its a sound bite like cloud computing is. Micro analytics is a bit too academic for the audience sifting through the information clutter. The essential point is that of distributed analytics in a context where a proliferation of sensors and connected devices makes it very difficult to work with centralized systems like cloud computing. The fog metaphor connotes a thinner spread of intelligence acorss the landscape rather than up in the sky as a cloud.

@Terry thanks for the link and the laugh. Those are just a shade more absurd than the real names.

@Ariella: Ha! Don't get me started on paint names... and besides, someone beat us to it in this hilarious post (NSFW, "off-color" language).

Yes, precision please!

@Terry That's just how I feel about paint names. Sometimes there seems to be huge disconnect between what the people who name things come up with and what they really are. I'd say it's always safer to be more precise even if one has to sacrifice some emotional resonance.

Interesting post, as usual, Kishore. And while I love the concept, I get stuck on "fog analytics"? Terrible name. Micro analytics or macro/micro analytics maybe, but something less cutesy and more descriptive, please!

I agree with you that "cloud analytics by contrast delays data flows and their processing far too long to matter." I wrote four (4) blogs on IOT for another UBM website. I was thinking about analytics for my fifth blog but didn't write it up because the website already sailed away last summer. The editor I worked for was a gentleman.
