About the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been recognized as the Racing Capital of the World since it opened in 1909 with a 2.5-mile oval track, which has played host to the Indianapolis 500 since 1911. IMS hosts four world-class racing events annually -- the Indianapolis 500 and Grand Prix of Indianapolis for the IndyCar Series, the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP for the MotoGP World Championship. The Speedway is the only track in the world that plays host to all of these series every year. The Speedway is the world's largest spectator-sporting facility, with more than 250,000 permanent seats. The entire facility spans more than 1,100 acres and includes the historic, 2.5-mile oval, an infield road course with Grand Prix and MotoGP configurations and a championship-caliber 18-hole golf course that includes four holes in the infield of the oval. IMS received the nickname "The Brickyard" after its original crushed stone-and-tar surface was repaved with 3.2 million bricks for safety reasons in fall 1909. Since then, the Speedway has been the site of countless innovations in automotive technology and motorsports safety ranging from mandatory crash helmet use to the revolutionary SAFER Barrier.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.

With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
