  • 27. M2M Integration Platform What is Everyware Cloud? • Everyware Cloud is about Device Data, about M2M: It has been built from ground-up to provide an infrastructure that is specialized in optimum device data comunication, collection, analysis and management. • It is an Integration Platform: Everyware Cloud is designed to act as an intermediate system between the distributed devices and the applications making use of the data coming from these devices. Any communication certainly is two-way in nature allowing also applications to control and manage the devices when required. • Everyware Cloud is conceptually like an Operating System for the Internet of Things enabling the transfer of device data independent of any other language, platform or OS to and from Enterprise applications

  • 29. M2M Integration Platform iPaaS Generic Gartner Definition & Everyware Cloud Everyware Cloud is offered as a M2M integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) to customers …. allowing a much simplified integration of distributed devices with business applications. In the enterprise IT world Gartner has introduced the concept of iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) as one specific category within the PaaS offerings. Everyware Cloud is in that very sense a M2M Integration Platform, specifically designed to provide “the glue” for IoT or M2M solutions between the distributed systems in the field and the enterprise application and management world. The distributed device “network” is one end of an integration flow, the enterprise application the other. Besides optimal Device data management it is the management of the distributed M2M devices with their software / services throughout their complete lifecycle that is an important aspect of the platform’s functionality.

  • 31. M2M Integration Platform Everyware Cloud: The M2M Integration Platform • Everyware Cloud is based on many of the same concepts found in enterprise integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions but uses because of its special design focus different, for the purpose optimal M2M technology and protocols. • Everyware Cloud provides the functional elements for customers to perform the appropriate message transformation, message routing, protocol conversions, data normalization, service virtualization, tracking, accounting, administration, monitoring and management of the M2M (distributed device) solutions. This approach includes the platform and its provided services as well ass the attached assets and their connections). • Generic and device and protocol specific adapters allow simplified integration of intelligent devices and legacy M2M solutions / protocols. These adapters consist of functional elements (software building blocks) that can / have to be partly implemented / provided on the remote asset / x x device side.
