AWS Targets Easier IoT Deployments

IoT is an important component of digital transformation, but it’s certainly not easy. The new IoT-focused services lets customers home in more on process than on creating a whole bunch of code.Tags:News & ViewsAmazon Web ServicesIoTIoT servicestroubleshootingre:InventInternet of ThingsAnalyst InsightCloud CommunicationsDigital TransformationVendor NewsVendor Strategy Articles You Might Like This week at its re:Invent user event in Las Vegas, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced four new services designed to make it easier for businesses to build Internet of Things (IoT) applications and take action on the data generated at the edge. The new capabilities announced at re:Invent 2018 are focused specifically on simplifying the steps required to build rich IoT applications. The services AWS rolled out can be thought of as abstraction tools that mask the complexity of performing those tasks. Specifically, AWS announced the following four services: These new services show a marked difference in AWS thinking. Historically, the company has excelled in making cloud-based tools that hardcore developers can use to build things quickly. While this will always be its core mission, these new services show an understanding that making it easier for customers to use its tools and connect them to other AWS services and third parties can accelerate usage.

Gary Audin September 13, 2019 IoT devices come in all shapes and sizes, with varied network requirements. AWS already has a bevy of IoT services, including an operating system, security tools, audit protection, analytics, and others. I’ve talked to a number of customers that use some or all of the IoT services, and the general feedback is that they are good building blocks but there’s still a lot of heavy lifting required to deploy IoT apps. Data ingestion, troubleshooting, analytics, and lots and lots of coding are often required.

Do Your IoT Efforts Match Up to Successful Initiatives? Gary Audin July 26, 2019 A focus on corporate buy-in and enterprise vision, rather than technology only, is a key success factor. AWS IoT Events is an event/response service that complements SiteWise. It collects data from IoT applications and sensors and looks for anomalies such as a conveyor belt being stuck. Building this functionality in-house requires custom application development, data collection, and the decision logic to trigger actions. AWS IoT Events is a managed service making it easy to detect events across tens of thousands of IoT sensors to measure the state of anything such as humidity, speed, and temperature. For example, if temperature inside a cooler spiked, it could indicate a problem with the door and a message could be sent to a technician to investigate. IoT Events integrates with other AWS services such as IoT Core and IoT Analytics to enable early detection. I mentioned how SiteWise and Events are complementary. The former is focused on understanding the performance of industrial operations, whereas Events monitors equipment changes that trigger alerts to generate an actionable response. AWS IoT SiteWise collects data from sensors on industrial equipment and structures data so it can be used to create real-time key performance indicators (KPIs). Customers can use the data to monitor operations across facilities, simplifying the task of managing industrial IoT equipment at scale. The KPIs greatly simplify the task of monitoring equipment to identify areas that lead to waste, such as the breakdown of equipment, process inefficiencies, and product defects. Doing this manually is difficult, as data lives in silos, requiring a specialist to extract the data and put it in a usable format. IoT SiteWise leverages software on an IoT gateway such as the AWS Snowball Edge gateway or other third-party gateways. IoT SiteWise is offered as a managed service and is currently available in limited preview.

Through a slick drag-and-drop interface, developers can connect different devices and Web services. For example, the below image shows how a hotel could personalize a hotel room when a guest walks through the door. The IoT world is a bit of the wild west today, as there aren’t many widely adopted standards, so getting things from different manufacturers to work together requires lots of custom code. AWS has masked much of that complexity for its customers. The other interesting aspect of this is that businesses can now create IoT applications without requiring a highly skilled developer. The graphical interface enables less technical people that might have a better understanding of business logic to create IoT applications. AWS IoT Greengrass Connectors is a new feature to the AWS IoT Greengrass service. Launched in 2016, Greengrass brings IoT-related services such as compute, machine learning, messaging, and others to edge devices. As the name suggests, the Connectors feature enables Greengrass devices to connect to a wide range of third-party applications such as ServiceNow, Splunk, and Twilio, while securely managing access control and credentials. As an example, a hotel that notices a problem with its HVAC system could connect to Twilio to send a message to ServiceNow that would trigger an alarm and notify a service technician. AWS IoT Greengrass Connectors simplifies the task of connecting to cloud and on-premises applications for logging, diagnostics, maintenance, logistics, and more.

Brazils gets ready to retain the crown

brazilMorten Soubak With less than a month to go for a new World Championship, Morten Soubak has designated 15 of the 16 players that will represent Brazil in both the Four Nations tournament in home soil and in Denmark, where they will defend the title obtained in Serbia two years ago.The last engagement before they take off to the Scandinavian country will be in the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, and Soubak hopes to make all the necessary adjustments to arrive in Europe in perfect shape: “These matches will help us to fully focus on the World Championship. We’ll continue to work on the aspects we worked on earlier this year during the training sessions in Sweden and during the friendlies with the team of Norway. We’re waiting for the IHF to make the final decisions regarding the new rules of the game, and if they’re officialized, we’ll have to make some changes in our training schemes”, he stressed on the Brazilian Handball Confederation website.The Four Nations will be held between the 27th and 29th of November and will count with the presence of neighbors Argentina, who will also be one of the opponents in group C in Kolding, Slovenia and Serbia, with whom they will re edit the final of the last World Championship.Ten of the athletes who lifted the trophy in Kombank Arena will be present in Denmark, one of them is captain Fabiana ‘Dara’ Diniz, who looks forward to polishing all the details before December 5th, when they debut against South Korea. In conversations with Handball­, this is what she said: “Playing at home is always nice because the Brazilian crowds are very passionate and cheerful, we just want to do it the best possible. Looking back to the matches prior to the last WC, we didn’t have the best results, but they were key to improve and adjust what we needed to adjust. Of course we want to win, but we’ll focus on finalizing the details and we hope that the people can enjoy a great tournament”.Diniz, who missed the last Pan American Games due to a deep venous thrombosis, is now fully recovered and made her comeback nearly a month ago, when Brazil spent a whole week in Fuerteventura, Spain, together with Sweden in a mixed training phase. That also marked the return to the NT of the IHF World Player of the Year, Eduarda ‘Duda’ Amorim, who is now recovered from a torn ACL on her left knee.Even though these are two very important comebacks, the Danish coach expressed that a few players “have unfortunately suffered injuries this year and some are still recovering”. He he hopes they can count on them as soon as possible, as the list still has an open spot for one last player. One of the ‘new faces’ on the team is the 19­year­old Bruna de Paula, who was part of the squads in the Youth and Junior WC last year, as well as the team who finished fourth in the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing. “Bruna is a very young player who has a very effective attack, she’s a player who can make the difference”.This is not Soubak’s first bet on a young player; he also took a very young Hannah Nunes to Serbia, and the 20­year­old proved her value with very important interventions throughout the tournament, including two key goals in the final minutes of the medal match against the host nation.When asked about the odds of repeating the title in Denmark, Diniz responded: “I think it is possible. We know it will be very difficult; getting there was hard and trying to repeat the title will be even harder, but we know our way. In my opinion lots of teams could make it into the top three and I think Brazil is one of them”.This is the list of 15 players designated by Morten Soubak: Goalkeepers: Bárbara Arenhart (Nykobing F. Handboldklub ­ DEN), Mayssa Pessoa (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM).Wings: Alexandra Nascimento (Baia Mare ­ ROM), Célia Costa (Metodista/São Bernardo ­ BRA), Fernanda França (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Jéssica Quintino (MKS Selgros Lublin ­ POL).Backs: Amanda Andrade (UnC/Concórdia ­ BRA), Bruna de Paula (São José ­ BRA), Deonise Fachinello (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Eduarda Amorim (Györ Audi ETO ­ HUN), Ana Paula Rodrigues (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Francielle Gomes da Rocha (Vegus/Guarulhos ­ BRA).Line players: Daniela Piedade (Siófok KC ­ HUN), Fabiana Diniz (BBM Bietigheim ­ GER), Tamires Morena (Mosonmagyaróvári ­ HUN)TEXT: LAURA AGENA ← Previous Story VOTE FOR MIZUNO WORLD HANDBALL PLAYER 2015!
