Overall Satisfaction with AWS IoT Core

AWS IoT core helps in collecting, managing data from IoT devices without having to manage the underlying infrastructure and focus on creating better experiences for customers.
The industrial, customer data collected with the help of core had 1 major usecase for us. First was to send service updates to customers based on usage of IoT implemented consumer durable household devices. This lead to timely servicing of devices and increase in revenue for our clients.


  • Flexibility to select communication protocol based on existing IT setup
  • Near real time collection and processing of data to send real time messages
  • Better security in data transfer


  • Performance lag in case of spike in data collection
  • IoT rules engine can be extended to have flexibility to include multiple coding languages
  • Complexity in terms of business logic design
  • AWS IoT Events
  • AWS IoT Analytics
  • AWS IoT Sitewise
  • Helped in increasing revenue with timely understanding and communication of service messages to customers
  • Helps in replacing faulty industrial machines leading to decrease in cost
  • Helped in enhancing product features based on edge cases
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.
