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.

In this chapter, we have looked at the how we can effectively secure the IIoT application and deploy it. We also discussed how to scale the various components and the best practices to use along the way. Security should be part of the software life cycle and should not be an afterthought. We provided a good framework to implement security as part of the entire software development life cycle. Scaling an application should also start with a good application architecture. We discussed how this can be achieved by adopting microservices built to scale, and in addition, we discussed how to build various components for scale using the scale cube. Finally, we looked at how to adopt good CI/CD practices to continuously deliver software to production.

In the next chapter, we will be looking at reliability, fault tolerance, and how to monitor IIoT applications.
