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/IoT platforms overview

Now that we have seen the basic components of IIoT application architecture let us look at a few options to choose before building our IIoT solutions. Building a IIoT application from the ground up is possible and requires a large amount of setup, computer power and storage. For a typical IIoT application we need to set up various different programming language environments, database options, analytics frameworks, such as Spark or Storm, data ingestion pipelines and so on. It is possible to build the entire setup from the ground up, but we can also potentially use a robust IIoT platform if it meets our needs.

Utilizing a good IIoT platform will provide you with the needed infrastructure and guidelines to successfully build and launch your IIoT applications, and also it will shorten your go to market timeline. IIoT platforms free up the developer&apos...
