    AWS IoT Core

    AWS iot core is very useful if you need to scale very quickly for managing lots of devices without handling the underlying infrastructure cost. It can enable real time publishing and subscription of devices, monitoring and early stage intervention in case of unexpected issues while developing a full stack solution. However, healthcare scenarios where government intervention is needed should be developed and scaled by following the set of compliance policies of the government and the SLA requirements of the customer. Finally, it is great where you need to do data science research after anonymizing data

    NativeScript

    I gotta be honest, after a PoC period, we choose to rewrite the whole application in a different cross-platform app. Our developers had to invest a lot of time and effort to debug a lot of plugin-related issues, which we needed to utilize the android mobile phone capabilities. QR reader, special visualizations, and fine-tuning were really hard and often resulted in writing native Android code instead of using the shared Angular code. In the end, we think that writing a standalone Android app and an Angular app would have been a better alternative, as the shared code base was so unreliable that it did not save us any time.

    Pros

    AWS IoT Core

    • AWS IoT Core integrates power analytics and an AI solution for sensor data processing.
    • Great protocol support including HTTPs and MQTT required to connect resource constraint IoT devices to cloud
    • High security standards during data transmission
    • Scalability and a great user community

    NativeScript

    • True native app. The app uses native components and that is quite noticeable in the overall performance of the app. NativeScript is also awesome in the way we can access the native APIs, so we are never really constrained by the framework. If we need, we can just dive into the native APIs without leaving our environment and language (JS).
    • Cross-platform. Builds for Android and iOS. It deals with the platforms differences very well.
    • Support for Vue.js. Even though it is just a community effort, the NativeScript-Vue plugin is the best alternative to build native Apps with Vue.js. That was a major factor to go with NativeScript.

    Cons

    AWS IoT Core

    • It would be great to have better integration with other IoT products outside of AWS
    • It has been lagging in some of our applications. It's difficult to tell whether this is on AWS IoT or on our implementation
    • It would be great to support a wider range of protocols
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    NativeScript

    • The need to know the native Android and iOS APIs to access device hardware and other platform-specific functionality
    • Not all user interface components are available for free
    • NativeScript has no HTML and DOM, which requires some deep knowledge of different UI tools to be implemented instead

    The hybrid is ok but native is better for performance and the right use case I want to go for is the performance without dealing with too many development tools.

    After adopting AWS IoT Core in our company it became clear that the whole platform was designed with usability in mind. It not only refers to IoT Core, but also applies to the remaining Amazon services. What we like the most is the fact that every phase from provisioning to maintaining provides great level of usability.

    I give it this rating because the support is always there if we need help, but they aren't always able to help us with our problems and sometimes have to transfer us to another support technician. So overall, the support for AWS IoT is pretty good and I am very satisfied with it.

    The community support is excellent.
    They have a slack community as well as a discourse forum
    forum.nativescript.org
    Both of these offer community driven support.
    The forum is more for a threaded discussion. The slack community is more for a quick talk.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS IoT Core

    Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services.Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.

    NativeScript

    IonicIonic is an excellent Angular-based framework for mobile, and it does give a lot of access to the native device api's. However, the technology is based on Cordova, which means the apps being built are just webviews, with html, css and JS all running on the UI thread, and potentially creating very slow experiences for users. NativeScript is a truly native solution, and so provides a faster user experience.ReactNativeWe evaluate ReactNative, and found it much the same as NativeScript. The main difference is that your JS is all written with React, while NativeScript lets you choose between normal JS, Angular, and Vue. For our team, Angular was the most appropriate choice.

    Return on Investment

    AWS IoT Core

    • Gives confidence to prototype iot solutions across lots of devices in little time
    • Ability to meet requirements for managing a variety of communication protocols
    • Learning iot analytics and visualization for faster insights enablement
    • Onboarding devices and managing quickly without building inhouse solutions
    Manu Gupta | TrustRadius Reviewer

    NativeScript

    • The poor quality of NativeScript documentation has the potential to weigh heavily on development timelines, budgets, and QA resources in a NEGATIVE manner.
    • The poor interoperability of NativeScript plugins can significantly increase development time.
    • The need to seek out professional instruction to learn how to use NativeScript effectively may become a burden on your budget.
    • The number of breaking changes between versions of NativeScript, may cause your development efforts to lag further behind the most recent releases of NativeScript and your other chosen environments than you are accustomed to.
    • NativeScript still does not support the latest major version of Angular. Any significant changes to the other environment components of your systems may hold you back even further while NativeScript plays catch-up.
