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
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
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.
