Event Recap: Global IoT Conference 2017 in the Bay Area

We recently had the pleasure of presenting ARTIK Cloud at the Global IoT Conference in Santa Clara, CA, USA. This gathering was part of the Global Big Data Conference.

I presented how a cloud-centric ecosystem eases IoT development. You can see my presentation slides below:

I focused on three aspects of ARTIK Cloud.

IoT = Interoperability of Things

ARTIK Cloud was created to accelerate IoT interoperability, rather than create more silos. Below is a selection of products that we have verified work with ARTIK Cloud.

We encourage you to build and connect your own devices or applications to ARTIK Cloud! By doing so, you will:

  • Expose your products to other developers in the ARTIK ecosystem.
  • Focus on what you do best, while building an end-to-end solution using devices and applications published by other developers.
  • Reduce time to market with this added support from the ecosystem.

Device and OTA Management

Via ARTIK Cloud, device manufacturers or asset managers can manage a fleet of devices without having the device in-hand and without requiring end user interaction. Below is an example of  what can be achieved using ARTIK Cloud’s device management capability:

  • Get remote insights, e.g. battery level, device memory, and more.
  • Perform tasks on the remote devices, e.g. rebooting, OTA (over-the-air) update (aka firmware update).

ARTIK Cloud + ARTIK Modules: end-to-end support with flexibility

ARTIK Cloud with ARTIK Modules together form Samsung’s smart IoT platform.

  • ARTIK Cloud: An API-first platform to quickly collect, store, and act on any data from any device or cloud service
  • ARTIK Modules: Flexible, pre-certified hardware modules, production-ready and tailored for IoT
  • ARTIK Ecosystem: A set of Tools, Partners, Integrators and Distributors available to make IoT projects a success

You have flexibility when designing your IoT solution:

  • Use both ARTIK Cloud and ARTIK Modules to take full advantage of built-in interoperability and end-to-end security.
  • Use one of them for their capabilities and openness.
