Overview of this book

There is a lot of work that is being done in the IoT domain and according to Forbes the global IoT market will grow from $157B in 2016 to $457B by 2020. This is an amazing market both in terms technology advancement as well as money. In this book, we will be covering five popular IoT platforms, namely, AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure IoT, Google IoT Core, IBM Watson IoT, and Kaa IoT middleware. You are going to build solutions that will use a Raspberry Pi 3, a DHT11 Temperature and humidity sensor, and a dashboard to visualize the sensor data in real-time. Furthermore, you will also explore various components of each of the platforms that are needed to achieve the desired solution. Besides building solutions, you will look at how Machine Learning and IoT go hand in hand and later design a simple predictive web service based on this concept. By the end of this book, you will be in a position to implement an IoT strategy best-fit for your organization

What is an IoT platform?

We have already seen in Chapter 3, Getting Started with IoT Platforms, what an IoT platform is. In this section, let's dig a bit deeper into the same architecture.

I had the privilege to architect and design an IoT platform named The IoT Suitcase. I started working on it in mid-2015 and finished the basic stack by the end of 2015. My goals in designing the platform involved these factors:

  • Data processing
  • Security
  • Seamless hardware and cloud software integration
  • Device management for individual devices and groups of devices
  • User interfaces and dashboards
  • High scalability
  • Enterprise readiness
  • Most important of all, the ability to add intelligence
