Any business process can be mapped to the IoT Cloud components via the following diagram:
The key things to note from the preceding diagram are as follows:
- Event Data: This is the streaming data that you do not want to store inside the IoT Cloud. In our temperature sensor example, this can be the room temperature the sensor outputs via push notifications every second.
- Context Data (Stored Data in IoT Cloud): This is stored in the IoT Cloud. This can be a device name, device model, and contact name/person where the sensor is installed.
- Profile Data: This combines Event Data and Context Data to create data that can act as an input to the Orchestration unit.
- Orchestration: This consists of the states, transitions, rules, conditions, and actions.
