The Oracle IoT Cloud Service is a secure and scalable platform to help organizations quickly build and deploy IoT applications. This new offering allows customers to gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from IoT by connecting, analyzing and integrating device data into business processes and applications like remote equipment monitoring and asset tracking.
The 3 Core Elements of IoT Cloud
Connect - Using IoT Cloud Service, users can collect data from any device in any market—reliably and securely. It abstracts away the technical challenges of connecting to devices/gateways and accelerates your time to market with an open, secure, and scalable platform.
Analyze - Gathering IoT data is pointless if customers can’t get value from it. IoT Cloud Service performs real-time analytics and enables big data and predictive analytics to deliver the enriched enterprise data that enables you to identify new services and improve customer satisfaction.
Integrate - IoT Cloud Service extends enterprise applications using open interfaces and pre-integrations with Oracle’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS) and on-premise applications to reduce total cost of ownership for IoT data-enriched applications and processes.
IoT Cloud Key Features
Device Virtualization – IoT Cloud Service exposes every connected device as a set of resources. This abstracts any complexity associated with device connectivity and standardizes the integration of devices with the enterprise.
Flexible Topology - Devices can connect to the Oracle IoT Cloud Service using different types of network topologies – using client library, gateway software or directly using REST API. This offers customers flexibility to integrate their devices with IoT Cloud Service.
Stream processing – IoT Cloud Service performs real time analysis of incoming data streams with event aggregation, filtering and correlation. With a business friendly interface, customers can quickly identify key events and exceptions at real-time.
Event Store – Analyzed data streams can be sent to integrated cloud services or enterprise applications for further processing and driving business workflows. Customers can query and visualize massive amounts of data with integrated Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service support and enable Big Data Analysis.
Enterprise Integration –IoT Cloud Service enables API based integration with Oracle enterprise applications such as E-Business Suite, JD Edwards Enterprise One, Oracle Transportation Management, Oracle Service Cloud as well as PaaS services like Oracle Mobile Cloud Service and Oracle Integration Cloud Service
Command & Control – Users can send messages to devices from enterprise & mobile applications, independent of device connectivity. Enterprise applications can also use the Oracle IoT Cloud Service REST API to issue commands and make queries to devices, providing customized, intelligent orchestration for business.
