AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT Core provides a good solution for IoT services required for IoT application development and for IoT startup companies. AWS IoT platform provides special packages for IoT startups, helps them in lowering costs, and caters to all their educational and training needs. AWS IoT platform is integrated with powerful AI and ML analytics so IoT startups can focus more on device development and less on backend solutions. I don't see any scenario where the IoT Core would be less appropriate.

Siemens Embedded IoT Framework

Siemens Siemens Embedded IoT Framework is well suited in IoT with farming automation, industrial automation, and office automation. It is less appropriate in a high magnitude area where security threats are high. It is very suitable for device-to-device connectivity and supports the cloud data store.

Easy to use. That's the main goal and this nails it. From the user perspective, this is as intuitive as you would expect from an Amazon product. Easily connect and host without a bunch of training and hand-holding. Change management is always part of the process but this was about as smooth as I have seen.

Of course it saves our company resources and time and to the tedious job of sending our device data to Cloud server. Lots of devices communicate with Cloud using the single tool AWS IoT.

Alternatives Considered

AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT Core is faster, easier, cheaper, and enjoyed by our employees more than Microsoft Azure. We selected AWS IoT because we saw an advertisement for it and have used it ever since. We will continue to use it as long as it is around or until we find one that is better.

Siemens Embedded IoT Framework

Mainly cost of service and better customer support with highly technical training. Mostly supported for the revenue growth. We have changed from Amazon API Gateway to Siemens Embedded IoT Framework. Siemens Embedded IoT Frameworks is very supportive of farming automation products and more flexible than its competitors. It has very innovative ideas for growth.
