Last week, we announced something I’m excited about and I wanted to write about it in language not stilted by press release customs. We released Stream Programming and Edge Computing in Sixgill Sense!
Our edge agent has nearly universal deployment on IoT gateways so building and managing rules and functions through our full-featured dashboard makes it easier than ever to scale and future-proof sensor applications. As always, we’ve taken a security-first approach so all JS functions are sandboxed and thoroughly controlled. This programmatic data logic can be used in addition to our rules interface and API or independently to create microservices that enrich, filter, route, and manipulate data to enable business logic to be executed on the edge of the network.
Want a hard example? Use our advanced geolocation features in addition to Stream Programming to trigger rules in real-time with 3rd party APIs. Just last week our mobile sdk and Programmatic Data Streams were used to augment our rules engine with real-time traffic data to send an alert when a user has a desired ETA to a specific location. This feature took way under an hour to create and deploy end-to-end. Easy!
