AWS IoT Things Graph was created to assist developers overcome the hurdles that they encounter with IoT-based hardware integration. With AWS IoT Things Graph, developers don’t have to navigate through the challenges that the lack of standards from different hardware vendors poses. This tool enables developers to redirect their time and resources on addressing features that accelerate time to value for the business instead. The article below does a deep dive into how the AWS IoT Things Graph tool works, along with providing more details on some of its features.
Businesses have always depended on human labor to make sure operations are running smoothly. However, COVID-19 has disrupted that. Business leaders can no longer make decisions without assessing the risk it creates for workers. Every time you send an employee out to do manual tasks, such as recording a temperature reading, you increase their odds of getting COVID-19. As a result, businesses are now turning to software and sensors to automate tasks previously performed by humans. While this has led to the accelerated adoption of IoT, nobody is talking about the elephant in the room: building these types of automation applications. Hardware integration to build these custom IoT solutions is still a painful process. In this article, I will explain some of the challenges when it comes to hardware integration and how using AWS IoT Things Graph can make hardware integration an easy and painless process.
