AWS, IoT, and Centare

By Centare

Simply and securely deploy, manage, and scale IoT solutions with AWS and Centare

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming businesses in unprecedented ways, such as optimizing and improving current and new business processes, offering differentiated customer service levels to their clients, and helping to unlock new sources of revenue. As embedded internet connectivity continues to become more pervasive across all devices, the applications for this technology are broader than ever before. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a secure and easy-to-manage platform for IoT deployments so you can take advantage of the benefits of the cloud and at the edge.

AWS IoT is a managed cloud service that makes it simple to securely connect edge devices to the cloud. With AWS IoT, it’s easy to use other AWS services like AWS Lambda, AWS Greengrass, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Machine Learning to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze, and act on data generated by connected devices at global scale, without having to manage any infrastructure. Whether you’re looking to make existing devices smart, or build a new IoT solution from the ground up, AWS and Centare can help.
