Why TIBCO Cloud Live Apps is a Good Fit for the Internet of Things
Blog: The Tibco Blog
Many times, Internet of Things scenarios require human intervention. Detecting and raising alerts is only effective if you are able to efficiently and systematically communicate to the individuals that are able to act on the issue. Once the necessary staff has been alerted, it is also necessary to track the issue through a final resolution to ensure it was handled correctly. TIBCO Cloud Live Apps is the perfect tool to do just that—bridge the gap between data and people. TIBCO Cloud Live Apps isn’t just limited to actions from systems to people, it can also be used to trigger actions back to the system or edge devices such as clearing an alarm.
Each company and situation is unique from systems, communications, and intervention processes so a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Instead, TIBCO Cloud Live Apps provides a way to quickly customize an app, with the capability to leverage existing services in place through TIBCO Cloud Integration.
Why I’m excited about TIBCO Cloud Live Apps
Throughout the entire lifecycle, from design to deployment, TIBCO Cloud Live Apps makes my life easier. Guided design helps me understand and think through the right aspects of my application at the right time. At any moment, I can validate my application in just one click using the testing mode, enabling an efficient step-by-step progression of app development. Once I am satisfied with my application, I can make it available to my organization in less than a minute and everything is handled transparently for me in the TIBCO Cloud.
The enabled use of services exposed through TIBCO Cloud Integration extends the capabilities of TIBCO Live Apps to a previously unreached horizon. While Live Apps does not currently have SMS capabilities, a standard developer can easily deploy such a service for you in days. TIBCO Cloud Integration permits development in Node.JS, BusinessStudio, and Web Integrator so that a large set of capabilities is offered to accommodate a larger set of developer skills.
