By Ken Briodagh January 26, 2017

In a recent announcement, WSO2 announced its intention to lower the barriers to capitalizing on IoT and mobile advantages with the debut of its open source WSO2 IoT Server.

The WSO2 IoT Server is designed to let organizations focus on adding business value while speeding time to market by providing all the features needed to start building an enterprise-grade solution in one downloadable pack. It combines WSO2 middleware already in use with new, device management functionality. The comprehensive product exposes devices as APIs to support integration and application development, ensures secure device and app access through identity management and authorization, simplifies app management for IT teams and end-users, and taps insights from devices via analytics and visualizations.

“Enterprises worldwide are harnessing mobile computing and the Internet of Things to revolutionize their business models. And increasingly these technologies are working hand-in-hand as mobile phones and tablets become command centers for controlling IoT-enabled lights, autos, retail kiosks, manufacturing systems, and more,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder, CEO and chief architect, WSO2. “With the launch of our comprehensive, open source WSO2 IoT Server, we are empowering these organizations to speed their pace of innovation by delivering all the functionality needed to manage, integrate, secure and analyze IoT and mobile devices and applications.”

WSO2 IoT Server is designed to support the needs of product strategists and architects in device manufacturing companies, line of business executives, and enterprise IT professionals and systems integrators. It is based on an open platform that the company says can be extended to support any device type, protocols, and data formats. Using WSO2 IoT Server, authorized users can engage in self-service enrollment and the management of connected devices; group, manage and monitor connected devices; handle the distribution and management of applications and firmware to devices; and share device operations and data with others.
