IoT Things Graph launched by AWS is a new service that makes it easy to create IoT applications with little or no code by connecting various devices and cloud services
Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), a subsidiary of Amazon.com providing on-demand cloud computing platforms, announced on Tuesday that it is introducing four significant services and capabilities to make it simpler to build rich Internet of Things (IoT) applications and ingest data from Edge devices.
The four significant services are – AWS IoT SiteWise, AWS IoT Events, AWS IoT Things Graph and AWS IoT Greengrass Connectors.
Making easy to create IoT applications
The IoT SiteWise is a new managed service that collects, searches and structures IoT data from devices in industrial facility and utilises it for analysing performance data of equipment and process, the company said in a statement.
IoT Things Graph is a new service that makes it easy to create IoT applications with little or no code by connecting various devices and cloud services, such as connecting humidity sensors to sprinklers to weather data services to build an agricultural application, by way of a visual drag-and-drop interface.
A managed IoT service, AWS IoT Events makes it easy for detecting and responding to changes shown by IoT applications and sensors, such as a stuck conveyor belt and malfunctioning equipment in an industrial facility, and then automatically triggering alerts or actions.
AWS also introduced the IoT Greengrass Connectors that provides developers the capability to connect third-party applications such as ServiceNow for service management, on-premises software like Splunk for log analytics, and AWS services such as Amazon Kinesis for ingesting data through common cloud Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
Due to this ability, developers can simply add more features such as location-based services, industrial data processing, replenishment, repair and maintenance, alarm and messaging, logistics and many others, without writing code.
