You want to connect to your devices, machinery or facilities regardless of their location. And you want to connect to them using the software tools in your work environment, whether it’s a SAP ERP system or cloud technology like aws or Microsoft Azure. To do that your system needs to reach out to our system. This happens through a standardised interface designed to provide interoperability between different computer systems. The interface is called a RESTful API.
On our side of the RESTful API we collect and process measurement and monitoring data from sensors and machinery. The Schildknecht IoT edge gateway pre-processes the data and sends it on to our private device cloud for further processing. The device cloud connects to your system through the RESTful API, sending you the data you need. With this seamless IoT connectivity in place you are ready to unleash the potential of your data, to analyse and visualize it, to perform in-depth monitoring, predictive maintenance, develop new business models and much more.
