Earlier this week Software AG revealed a new tool that should prove helpful for engineers developing solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) Edge.

It’s christened Apama Analytics Builder and it has been created as a platform for “self-service” analytics that can monitor and respond to IoT data in real-time, the company explains.

More specifically the Apama Analytics Builder can be used to design, develop, and deploy analytics for IoT applications, and Software AG says engineers and domain experts working in edge computing can get the most out of it.

“Analytics Builder delivers on our strategic vision for self-service analytics and removes the typical bottlenecks hindering the rapid development and deployment of streaming analytic applications,” notes Dr. Stefan Sigg, chief product officer of Software AG.

“By allowing operators and domain experts to directly develop their own analytic applications we are taking a huge amount of pressure off the IT department and empowering decentralised teams to accelerate their delivery schedules. Also, bringing operational expertise directly to application development significantly reduces the risk of misunderstandings and enables operators to immediately address unexpected events and situations,” he continues.

Available on the ADAMOS IoT platform and in production, Apama Analytics Builder will have general availability in April through Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT Edge, the company says.

It’s unclear, however, when local companies can begin leveraging the capabilities of the platform, and whether South Africa falls under the same window.

Nevertheless as more conversions and projects around IoT take place locally, have an Edge capable offering like the Apama Analytics Builder is welcome.
