    • Internet / TCP/IP Why a M2M Integration Platform ? Sometimes M2M Solutions look simple … Business Application Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Service Gateway Single or no special application on gateway A single application to communicate with Only one type of Gateway HW & SW Only one type of device / sensor No connectivity options required
    • Internet / TCP/IP Ethernet WiFi 3G / LTE Satellite WiMAX Other Why a M2M Integration Platform ? .. but for many Customers Solutions are more Complex Business Application Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Multi- Service Gateway • Multiple services on the gateway / edge node • Different connectivity options • More than one kind of vertical market value proposition • Customer specific business logic 2G / 2.5G xDSL Cable
    • Why a M2M Integration Platform ? ... Geographically Dispersed … Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Multi- Service Gateway ?
    • Why a M2M Integration Platform ? ... and with more than one Consumer of the Device Data @ Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … Multi- Service Gateway ?
    • Why a M2M Integration Platform ? We need an “ESB for Machines” Approach Business Applications Sensors, Actuators, Displays, … @ Multi- Service Gateway Everyware Cloud M2M Integration Platform
    • M2M Integration Platform • Everyware Cloud is about Device Data, about M2M: It has been built from groud-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 / assets where 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 What is Everyware Cloud?
    • 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). • 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 / device side.
    • M2M Integration Platform • Decoupling sensors and applications: flexible M2M platform that offers a complete separation between devices and applications while allowing to build many-to-many relations at the business level to enable new services • Optimum device connectivity: bandwidth optimized, open, data agnostic, message oriented transport protocol for efficient network usage • Flexible data management: data in any format can be stored and accessed quickly in an elastic and secure schemaless database • Long-term available data: data can be stored and queried at any time • Real-time data management and analytics: device data can be received and statistically analyzed in real-time • Data accessing and querying: standard REST APIs for easy application development as well as data & management application integration • Device management: management of the distributed M2M devices with their software / services throughout their complete lifecycle Everyware Cloud Values & Capabilities

    • M2M Integration Platform Everyware Cloud is offered as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) 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, using the following definition: An iPaaS offering provides users with a combination of cloud services — collectively called integration platform services — to develop, execute and manage integration flows. Integration flows running on iPaaS can connect, in a many-to-many fashion, any combination of on-premises and off-premises applications, services, processes and data. iPaaS Generic Gartner Definition & Everyware Cloud Source: Gartner, Inc. | JAI13_111* *Enterprise Application & Architecture Summit , Cloud Services Integration: How to Get Greater Business Value From Your Cloud Investments, Massimo Pezzini, March 2013

    • M2M Integration Platform Integration flows running on iPaaS can connect, in a many-to-many fashion, any combination of on-premises and off-premises applications, services, processes and data. Integration flows can be developed by the iPaaS client or by a service provider (e.g., an integration brokerage) via the iPaaS development and life cycle management platform services. Through the iPaaS monitoring, management and administration platform services, users deploy and administer integration flows, monitor their execution and manage their behavior (e.g., can change priorities, QoS requirements or security policies). An iPaaS also provides governance platform services (registry/repository, artifacts life cycle management, policy management and enforcement, as well as governance data collection and API management). All these services are implemented on a core set of cloud foundation services providing support for multi-tenancy, elasticity, self-service support, tracking, metering and billing with assurance of tenant integrity, security and service levels.

    • M2M Integration Platform as a Service An iPaaS suite, is designed to provide users with an integrated integration and governance platform for enabling independently designed applications and services to work together. The iPaaS offerings usually combine “custom-developed software and metadata implementing the "integration logic" needed to connect multiple applications by performing the appropriate message transformation, routing, protocol conversions, service virtualization, orchestrations, security federation, usage tracking, administration, monitoring and management, etc.” Everyware Cloud is in that very sense an iPaaS 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. Everyware Cloud is based on many of the same concepts found in enterprise iPaaS solutions but uses because of its special design focus different, for the purpose optimal M2M technology and protocols.

    • M2M Integration Platform Gartner defines iPaaS as “a suite of cloud services enabling the development, execution and governance of integration flows connecting any combination of on-premises and cloud-based processes, services, applications and data within individual, or across multiple, organizations.” “An iPaaS offering provides users with a combination of cloud services — collectively called integration platform services — to develop, execute and manage integration flows .” An integration flow is, “software and metadata implementing the "integration logic" needed to connect multiple applications by performing the appropriate message transformation, routing, protocol conversions, service virtualization, orchestrations, security federation, usage tracking, administration, monitoring and management, etc. Integration flows running on iPaaS can connect, in a many-to-many fashion, any combination of on-premises and off-premises applications, ………… ……... services, processes and data. ” Introducing the Concept of Integration Flows Source: Gartner, Inc. | JAI13_111*

Everyware Cloud provides the functional elements for customers to perform “the appropriate message transformation, routing, protocol conversions, service virtualization, orchestrations, security federation, usage tracking, administration, monitoring and management, etc.” Everyware Cloud is based on many of the same concepts found in enterprise Integration Platform solutions, but uses because of its special design focus different, for the purpose optimal M2M technology and protocols like MQTT. Within the Everyware Cloud architectural model a combination of some of these functional elements (software & hardware building blocks) are used to build adapters (to perform device and protocol specific tasks) that are implemented x - provided also on the device side.
