The explosive growth of IoT data in the enterprise is creating opportunities and challenges as operations technology (OT) and IT converge.
MachineShop pioneered the the API-centric approach to enterprise IoT. We were the first and are the only IoT platform that is 100% API-based.
MachineShop is a collection of hundreds of unique services with RESTful APIs - like building blocks - to create and integrate applications and solutions.
This collection of highly robust, scalable, near real-time services is designed for integration of OT Systems and Devices to provide them RESTful API interfaces. APIs provided, include the ability to define, configure and receive information from data sources without the need to update or change the communications protocol.
Storage of information from edge systems and devices can be especially challenging when interfacing to a variety of end points. MachineShop STORE eliminates the complexity by interfacing directly to MachineShop COLLECT and providing an extremely reliable, redundant, and fast database.
As information from end points is consumed into MachineShop COLLECT, it can be analyzed in real-time for specific events or conditions. An advanced rules engine configured via RESTful API's using JSON is available to manage these rules as required. Notification methods are available including: http, tcp, SMS, email, and even CONTROL actions.
As data is COLLECTed and STORED with our system, you may require the ability to analyze or export this data for further processing. MachineShop has a variety of services available (via APIs) for retrieval. Several pre-built connectors are available to export your data to a variety of industry-leading systems for analytics.
Depending on your edge device configuration or network, your application may need to send configuration or other commands. Using API's provided, the application can send outbound information to your end points, including those that may require wakeup. Support for various cellular network subscription services insure maximum value for your connection.
API Management is becoming an integral part of most enterprise solutions. MachineShop provides a rich set of API's that enable you to define your API endpoints, create custom API's, integrate to external third-party API's and more. This set of services includes the ability to meter and control usage and download information related to usage for potential monetization.
MachineShop is architected as a collection of discrete services that can be consumed individually or in clusters, with an unlimited number of APIs.
Combine data extraction and normalization with business logic services, all expressed as APIs in one common framework. Services can run in the public cloud, on premise or function as a hybrid. All the features and capabilities of the MachineShop CLOUD offering can also be deployed in a customer determined privately secured environment.Learn More
