Framework for an IoT Developer Kit
What does the optimal Internet of Things platform contain?
Apr 04, 2018—
The Internet of Things (IoT) offers both new opportunities and challenges to developers. Just as the last decade saw a boom in mobile application development, in which talented developers hit home runs with things like fitness and e-commerce apps, the next decade will belong to IoT developers.
In order to ensure the success of an IoT development program, a company or developer should step back and assess its overall development strategy before diving in. While the question of what, exactly, is the ideal IoT software development kit (SDK) is being debated, developers can still compile a short list of the most important components.
What does the optimal IoT platform really contain?
An Open API
An open API is central to all IoT development, because IoT development is, at its essence, about connectivity. The OpenAPI spec enables developers to knit together the various technologies behind the IoT, and to link the IoT devices and the data they collect back into larger big-data repositories, and the analytics programs that make sense out of all the IoT data. They can then up-source those insights to enterprise applications, such as supply chain systems, e-commerce applications, or the telecommunications or energy applications that drive public utilities.
