Webinar IoT Cloud Platforms and Middleware for Rapid Application Development


Published on

Internet of Things (IoT) has become ubiquitous and mainstream. You can well envision a future where everything - right from smart watch to smart car to home- would be interconnected to make human lives smarter and easier. The real opportunity lies in interpreting the data being churned out by these IoT devices and more importantly, bringing connected applications, scalable and smart products to the market, rapidly.

The IoT Cloud platforms enable you to integrate your application and solution with any device, anywhere; providing a reliable, seamless experience in the shortest time window.

Harbinger Systems hosted an informative webinar "IoT Cloud Platforms and Middleware for Rapid Application Development" on January 13, 2016. . Attendees gained insights on how to quickly ideate and develop IoT applications through cloud based platforms and middleware.

  6. 6. Key Insights of IoT IoT in Startups: • Funding to IoT startups has grown at a steady clip, more than doubling in 5 years from $768M in 2010 to over $1.9B in 2014. And, 2015 is well on track to eclipse last year’s record-breaking funding year IoT in cloud: • 37.9% of IoT apps are being developed in the Cloud, and 49.6% of developers plan to begin development there in the next twelve months. Only 5.5% of IoT developers surveyed have no plans to build their apps in the Cloud. © Harbinger Systems |

  15. 15. Carriots for IoT- Key Features © Harbinger Systems | Platform as a service (PaaS) Rest APIs for send and get data streams Rule Engine Access to 3rd Party APIs Better for tiny IoT prototypes or M2M applications Device Management Listeners and Triggers
  16. 16. Carriots for IoT  Limitations – Requires 3rd party server for data processing – No in built support for push notifications – Only Groovy language support for on-cloud business logic  When to use Carriots It can be used for smaller app where monitoring of current value of sensor/device is imp and not much data processing needed © Harbinger Systems |
  17. 17. Carriots – Case Study for Smart Air Conditioning © Harbinger Systems | Problem Statement: It is critical to achieve energy efficiency in a building by manually adjusting temperature of air conditioners
  18. 18. Solution- Smart Air Conditioning © Harbinger Systems | IoT app developed using Carriots, monitors the room temperature, the external weather conditions, user preferences and sends notification to the HomeKit compatible AC based on predefined set of rules. Features used: Data streams, Listeners, Email notifications Internal Sensor External Sensor Push notification User preference
  19. 19. Parse for IoT- Key Features © Harbinger Systems | Backend-as-a- Service Open Source Push notifications In built user session APIs Cross platform support REST API Support Monitoring with analytics Device Support
  20. 20. Parse for IoT  Limitations - No built-in device management - No. of request vs. economic measure - Push notifications can be delayed - Query limitations as no of objects returned in query  When to use Parse IoT app on small scale where small DB and moderate data processing is required © Harbinger Systems |
  21. 21. Parse – Case Study for Conference Room Booking © Harbinger Systems | Problem Statement: Conference room booking is currently through calendars and not on actual usage
