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.

For us, it has been well suited for monitoring devices that are placed remotely and have no easy access to. Most of our devices are sent to customers which we have little or no contact with. Rather than the customers finding a problem, reporting it to us and then us investigating it. We can just be notified of the problem and deal with it without the customer realising.

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.

I haven't really found any other product or service which does the same as UpSwift, therefore I have not needed to look for alternative products
