Why should an IOT system be an assembled system rather than developed in the conventional process?
IOT system has very little ‘idea to implementation’ cycle time. Conventional process takes significant duration to develop a solution. Hence a configuration driven module assembly process is required. Webyfy has developed a module based system development process in which operationally independent modules are created initially and assembled through a configuration system without the need for additional programming.
Internet of Things is an ever expanding system in terms of architecture and technology. The functionality requirements change as the system comes into operation and as the user discovers its possibilities. The IOT system is therefore quite dynamic in terms of all its parameters.
A conventional system is designed and built on a set of initial specifications and is expended through change orders as and when new requirements are initiated. This process continues till the system becomes operational. The system so developed is quite rigid. The dynamics of the business environment may require the system to be scraped and a new one made. This is not a practical approach in the realm of IOT as the dynamics of requirement are varied and it is not possible to ascertain during conception.
The requirement for a new approach for design and development of system catering to the IOT environment has been fueled by Webyfy’s module based system development. In this operationally independent modules are created initially. They are tested for independence and intended functionality. These modules are designed in such a way that they can be assembled through a configuration system without the need for additional programming.
To create a system, the basic functionalities are defined and the process is mapped. Modules are identified and they are woven according to the required process and functionalities. The process can be achieve quickly and the solution arrived at within a short period of time. The unavailable modules are created for the intended unique functionalities and be added through appropriate configurations.
This method of assembling modules to create varied applications is effective in reducing the application creation cycle time with improved quality. The most important benefit is the flexibility. The changes are easy and quick to implement, do not disturb the existing system. And require no additional software development.
