CANDI has announced its collaboration with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and the launch of a new solution that simplifies the connection of smart building devices and data to apps. Through the integration of Google Pub/Sub and CANDI’s PowerTools, IoT developers and service providers can more easily connect to edge data, link directly into Google’s Cloud Platform toolset, and drive business value across the IoT ecosystem. The solution is designed with out-of-the-box support for smart buildings, which includes reference designs and sensor kits for energy, HVAC, and equipment management using Intel® BMP gateways.
By normalizing edge data across different devices and protocols, and delivering that data through Google Pub/Sub’s central access point, the CANDI-Google solution reduces the cost and workload for third-party software and services to compete in the IoT marketplace. Now, companies that specialize in business intelligence, analytics, operations, and systems management can deploy scalable products faster without having to tackle the difficult challenges of device-level communications or edge-to-cloud connectivity, which is managed by CANDI software.
“We’re accelerating IoT market growth through our collaboration with Google Cloud by simplifying complex connections to devices and data,” said Steve Raschke, CEO of CANDI. “Google Cloud Platform gives our customers a more secure, centralized channel for effortless access to their data, a pre-integrated suite of world-class analytics tools, and the solid foundation of Google’s global infrastructure.”
