Ooredoo win offers further clarity on Software AG’s strategy for Cumulocity

A year ago, we offered three scenarios for what might happen to IoT Application Enablement Platform (AEP) developer Cumulocity following its acquisition by Software AG. We predicted Software AG might use the Cumulocity platform as core middleware around which to deploy products for business process management and analytics. Since then, various deals involving Cumulocity have helped to clarify Software AG’s strategy. This month, for example, the Doha, Qatar-based international telecommunications company Ooredoo announced it would […]

3 Things Missing from Application Enablement Platforms

One of the most fundamental requirements of any successful large or small IoT implementation is an effective application enablement platform. An application enablement platform (AEP) is a technology-centric offering optimized to deliver a best-of-breed, industry-agnostic, extensible middleware core for building a set of interconnected or independent IoT solutions for customers. The AEP forms the heart of an IoT solution, enabling customers to develop, deploy, operate and extend their IoT implementation. An AEP provides a common […]

Functional architecture for IoT platforms

Today, MachNation has created the industry’s first vendor-agnostic, functional architecture for IoT platforms. While much literature exists on the types of enterprise IoT platforms available, until now there was no independent source that described the detailed functional components that enterprises demand in an IoT platform. This publicly available document defines the 24 micro-services required by enterprises in their IoT platforms. IoT platform architecture (Publicly available): Enterprises are using this functional architecture to ensure IoT platform […]
