For enterprises with distributed and unpredictable IoT traffic, cloud computing is a key IoT resource. How do companies get more out of their cloud provider tools?

The IoT cloud platform provides more than just the place to store data. To date, companies with experience in the Internet of Things can identify four functional areas that the IoT cloud platform can address:

(1) Registration, management and support of IoT devices.

(2) Collection and scene of events generated by IoT devices.

(3) Handling IoT events for recording, converting them into business transactions, using them as commands to the IoT controller or any combination of these functions.

(4) Any special services related to IoT application component hosting.

All major public IoT cloud platforms offer tools to address these areas. In some cases, IT professionals can apply these tools without changing the application, which means they don't require extensive support from developers.

In other cases, the development team must integrate the tools with the application. IT professionals must understand each of the four IoT functional areas and the level of development collaboration they need.

1. Registration, management and support of IoT devices

Amazon's and Google's IoT core service portfolio and the Azure IoT Center both register, manage, and support IoT devices. This area involves the IoT device community itself. These services free the burden of the IoT device community from IoT applications by providing secure device communication, registration of new devices, decommissioning devices, and other common community tasks.

Managers and operators can also add tasks that have less impact on development. Cloud computing applications have many advantages over traditional applications.

2. Collection and scenario of events generated by IoT devices

Scenario means ensuring that the event is associated with the state of the external system from which it originated. Developers and operations staff or managers should consider the Internet of Things as the source of events. IoT devices send signals based on actual conditions, which then activate the application process. In some cases, these events are independent signals or requests, while in other cases, the event scenario is important. For example, if the gate is closed, the signal to open the gate is processed in one way, and if it is already open, it is handled in another way.
