About TriStar Motorsports
TriStar Motorsports was established in 1989 by Mark and Kathy Smith. In its early years, the team competed in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, where the team won the Coors Light Pole for the 1994 Daytona 500 with Loy Allen Jr. -- the first rookie in the history of NASCAR to set the pace for the historic race. After accumulating 151 starts in the Winston Cup Series, with three poles and nine top-10s, Smith withdrew from team ownership to focus on building engines for the NASCAR industry. Now, Smith's company -- Pro Motor Engines -- is the leading independent builder of race engines for all three of NASCAR's top-tier divisions and other series like ARCA and the SCCA. Smith was eager to return to team ownership and the opportunity came along in 2010 when he re-launched his TriStar Motorsports team and began fielding cars in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In only three short years, TriStar Motorsports has accumulated 279 starts and closed out their 2012 campaign with driver Mike Bliss sitting eighth in the Championship Point Standings. Former driver Tayler Malsam closed out the year 15th and the team's sophomore driver, Eric McClure, finished a mere 50 points out of the top-15 in 16th position. The team plans to field four entries in 2013 with manufacturer support from Toyota.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
