Industrial Internet Application Development

By: Alena Traukina, Jayant Thomas, Prashant Tyagi, Veera Kishore Reddipalli

Overview of this book

The Industrial Internet refers to the integration of complex physical machines with networked sensors and software. The growth in the number of sensors used in industrial machinery has led to an exponential increase in data being captured for predictive analytics. Industrial Internet Application Development is a practical guide for developers who want to create applications that leverage the full capabilities of IIoT. You will get started by learning how to develop your first IIoT application and understanding its deployment and security. Once you’re familiar with what IIoT is, you will move on to exploring Edge Development along with the analytics aspect of the IIoT stack. In later chapters, you’ll get to grips with the deployment of IIoT applications on the Predix platform. As you cover these concepts, you’ll be able to identify key elements of the development framework and understand their importance while considering architecture and design for IIoT applications. By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to deploy IIoT applications on the Predix platform and incorporate best practices for developing fault-tolerant and reliable IIoT systems.

IIoT Fundamentals and Components
Future Direction of the IIoT


As we have discussed in this book, the IIoT covers all aspects of data capture and processing. A complete IIoT product is a comprehensive end-to-end solution that should cover data capture, ingestion, storage, search, analytics, and visualization. As we touched upon in previous chapters, most of these areas have a number of products on the market that can satisfy most requirements. Hence, building a good IIoT solution is about choosing the right technology stack and creating the right interfaces to achieve non-functional requirements such as scalability and high performance. As the technology stack evolves, so will solutions to address key gaps that we see today as blocking the progress of the IIoT. Some of this will be driven by the needs and issues that we will see in deployments (such as security) and some of these will be driven by rapid evolution in related areas...
