This week in Vegas at CES, AT&T has rolled out some new goodies for developers. According to the company, AT&T Flow Designer is now commercially available to business customers. The cloud-based solution, developed in the AT&T Foundry, helps developers easily create and deploy IoT apps
New Developer Features
AT&T is also trialing 2 new features:
- AT&T Flow Edge – Apps built in AT&T Flow Designer can now run at the edge of the network. For example, gas companies often need fast, near real-time information on pipeline conditions. The developer can use AT&T Flow Edge to process only the near real-time data, rather than losing valuable time waiting for instructions from an app running in the cloud.
- AT&T M2X Context – Customers can control how data reaches different user groups based on rules. A motorized equipment manufacturing company may want to publish maintenance information solely to its supply chain partners and dealers, while publishing environmental data only to regulators.
AT&T has created a new report to share how businesses can best use the Internet of Things to help cut costs, grow revenues, boost efficiency and satisfy customers. To learn more about IoT’s potential, download the report here or visit www.att.com/iot.
