Using FPA to measure Internet of Things Applications

ISMA 17 conference: Using FPA to measure Internet of Things Applications

Eduardo Oliveira



There is a projection that by 2020 we will have about 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. These interconnected devices will allow the emergence of Smart World – Smart Home, Smart City, Smart Building, etc. This connection through networks expand the relationship between people and people, people and things, and things between things. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), new challenges in Software Engineering have been emerging over time. One of them is in the area of measurement of the size of applications and projects in IoT. Before defining a way to measure size, it is necessary to understand the architectures, where IoT applications are developed, and how they perform functions and store data, process and transmit information between the various devices connected through a network that is not necessarily the Internet. In this presentation, I will show the basic concepts of IoT, the use of an architectural solution to improve the performance and security of IoT (Fog Computing) applications, the use of Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. How can we solve the measurement of the functional size of these applications and projects using FPA showing through an example of an application in IoT. To conclude the presentation, challenges will be showed to measure functional and non-functional size for these types of systems.
