Combining an open model with enforced standards solves many of the

challenges presented by the internet of things, including the lack of

security and the lack of interoperability.


The platform includes a variety of IoT services that enable real-time analysis.Building in real-time analysis means that the platform can sense anomalies and either make corrections or issue alerts. For example, the system can send an alert when a production machine requires maintenance.

Security is a key part of the Software AG platform. Where possible, IoT devices use encryption for control and for data delivery. The network traffic is encrypted continuously and so is all stored data.  Software AG’s platform controls access to most devices, making it much harder to infect connected devices with malware.

According to Software AG CEO, Karl-Heinz Streibich, the platform encompasses IoT integration, which includes big data analytics and application integration. There’s also real-time IoT analytics, which supports integration with artificial intelligence and machine learning. An IoT hub in the platform supports device compatibility and management. An IoT modeling function that supports design analytics rounds out the platform.
