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.

In this chapter the high-level architecture of IIoT applications. Furthermore, we developed our own sample application to illustrate the richness and depth of the IIoT application ecosystem. To summarize: IIoT consists of three key components namely device, the gateway, and the cloud. Devices, with their sensor, gets connected to gateway, which aggregates the data from sensors and typically applies some basic analytics. Gateways, using secure protocols such as MQTT or HTTPS/WebSockets, connect to the Cloud, which stores the data for further processing.

In addition, we covered in depth the details of each of the tiers, including a good overview of PaaS and a sample PaaS platform, Cloud Foundry, and the development model using microservices in cloud. We also covered a sample application covering all of the three tiers. Finally, we ended this chapter with an overview of a...
