From developers to manufacturers and consumers, the Internet of Things is commanding some serious attention these days.
But developing solutions for smart homes, cities, factories and cars takes creativity and the right technology. So, here at Software AG, we are making it easier for everyone to innovate in this marketplace.
Apama Community Edition, a free version of the Apama Streaming Analytics platform, enables developers to download the Apama software, build streaming analytics applications, and put those applications into production. It contains most of the functionality and features of the premium version and enables developers to develop and run small- to medium-sized scale proof-of-concepts, projects and applications.
And now, Apama Community Edition has significantly expanded its capabilities with a new Internet of Things (IoT) Analytics Kit and the ability to run on Raspberry Pi; Apama core components are now available as a re-distributable runtime.
The IoT Analytics Kit for Apama Community Edition contains a set of event-based, analytical microservices used for the development of IoT applications. Examples include analytics that calculate the “normal” range of numeric values and create an alert if these ranges have been exceeded or breached. Other analytic services include Threshold Breach, Missing Data, Quasher, Variance, and Gradient.
Additionally, Apama Community Edition now runs on Raspberry Pi and can be used to build, for example, streaming analytics applications or act as an ARM-based Edge gateway or edge device. Included with the software are project samples, complete documentation as well as a plug-in that leverages the GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pin on the Raspberry Pi computer, which allows other devices to connect seamlessly.
The Apama Community Edition runtime allows developers to build applications on top of Apama Community Edition and then distribute these applications free of charge.
As you can see, we are also taking the IoT seriously by giving developers the opportunity to bloom. To find out more about Apama Community Edition and the IoT Analytics Kit, visit the Apama Community.
