Case Study

The Customer

The client is an American multinational tele communications conglomerate and a corporate component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. In August 2020, they launched their IoT Marketplace, a new easy-to-use digital portal that helps customers - from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises -quickly purchase, activate and manage customized IoT solutions.

The Challenge

  • Create an open architecture for the IOT platform that allows companies with disparate system to easily integrate and interact with the platform
  • Provide real time intelligence to aid appropriate decision making
  • Feed into the deep-learning and artificial intelligence models
  • Work seamlessly with all the major cloud providers
  • Easy integration with high performant infrastructure

The Process and Solutions

  • Smart devices connect to platform via user defined protocol. A micro-service platform manages the connections between device and platform.
  • The IOT platform is bunch of micro-services that communicate among one-another and derive business logic, which make sense in use-case
  • A dedicated set of micro-services are responsible to stream the sensor information from device to customer configured cloud accounts
  • A dedicated set of micro-services are responsible to notify customer though variety of notifications (email, SMS etc.)
  • Some micro-services offer analytics and metric information that is derived from sensor information of devices

Tech Stack

  • Programming Languages: Golang, Java
  • Datastores: Cassandra, Elastic Search
  • Platform: Docker, Kubernetes
  • Product Infrastructure: Kafka, Zookeeper


The Impact

Business Benefits:

  • Platform coupled with analytics infrastructure will offer real time intelligence and also help to feed deep-learning and Artificial Intelligence models, which in turn provides a way for customers to detect the outliers of their product
  • Platform’ s ability to stream data to popular clouds AWS, GCP, Azure, provides more powerful use-cases and enhances the collaboration of major companies towards a common goal of IoT
  • Almost every top company, has tapped the potential of IoT industry and are investing more and more. The primary reason for this, is that the value of data obtained from these sensor devices is priceless

Technical benefits:

  • A platform agnostic of any IoT use-case ranging from different industries ,meaning any IoT use-case can be built on top of Thing space platform, as it provides the raw infrastructure for smart devices to connect and report data
  • The agnostic nature of the platform with respect to use-case, has potentially opened up opportunities to integrate literally any IoT use-case.
  • Platform when coupled with high performant infrastructure can offer time-sensitive intelligence to act up on, and also help automate corrective actions where and when necessary.
  • Platform can also offer data-sink for the data received from welter of sensors installed Globally
  • Advancements in 5G network is going to revolutionize IoT industry, and when coupled with Edge computing, there are no bounds for the efficiency these platforms can offer

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
