Why should I use an IoT device management platform?

IoT's potential#

Imagine a world where more of our decisions are based on data. A world where we can easily identify the real issues and focus our attention on finding the optimal solutions for them. That world is gradually becoming a reality with the use of the Internet of Things (IoT).

In essence, IoT is turning into our planet’s nervous system. In our everyday life we interface with numerous devices that can tell us something about our world. IoT gives us the opportunity to get real time data from those devices, enabling us to have real time feedback from our surroundings, feedback that can help us formulate a more robust understanding about our situation and figure out the best course of action when it comes to making critical decisions.

Benchmarking signal acquisition on the RPi

The Raspberry Pi (RPi) is undoubtedly a revolutionary affordable single board computer, with multiple applications and a must have accessory for every hardware hacker and maker. Gradually though, it is increasingly getting traction and is being used on main stream commercial applications.

We have experimented with it a lot and used it in a few of our IoT projects and the compelling argument for its use is that it is rather easy to develop on it more complex IoT applications, that require the deployment of services such us a web server, a complex GUI running on a connected monitor or connection to external web servers.

From a R&D project to Atman IoT

From it’s initial steps up to today, our company, Kapa REN Ltd, has been focused on developing innovative technological solutions, that help its customers gain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

It was a great honor for us to be invited to participate in, the co-financed by GSRT research project, PV Auto Scout, which has helped us tremendously in shaping Atman IoT. Through our involvement with the academic world, we transitioned from theory to practice and from R&D to creating a fully fledged commercial product.

Introducing Atman IoT Platform as a Service

We are really excited to announce the launch of Atman IoT Platform as a Service (PaaS), focused on rapid prototyping of IoT solutions. Atman IoT PaaS aims at simplifying the process of developing and launching an IoT service by providing a ready to use solution for managing, analyzing and visualizing data from your IoT devices.

   

Atman IoT Fo.tsi (v2.0) is now available

Today marks the release of v2.0 of Atman IoT with code name Fo.tsi.

The following major changes were introduced:

  • New authentication & authorization. Auth token is now attached to Authorization Request Header and, hence, removed from url. Documentation
  • Request & Response objects. API end point request and response objects were standardized in order to ease integration to custom front ends and enable upcoming release of ready to use front end - back end communication modules. Documentation

We just launched Atman IoT!

"It ain't what you know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Mark Twain

  • Fact: We make a surprising large portion of our decisions based on a hunch
  • Fact: Those decisions affect our families, our communities, our businesses in the most profound way
  • Fact: Some of our decisions are wrong. We call them mistakes and hope to learn from them

We strongly believe that our word would be a better place, if more of our decisions were based on evidence.

We want to contribute towards this vision by building the required tools for collecting and making this evidence available to those who make decisions.

For that reason, we have created and we've just released Atman IoT, a tool for collecting and analyzing digital evidence from your organization, so that you can make more educated decisions about it's direction.
