Product Update - October 2021

Published on by Fabian Gerschwiler

The growth of the akenza ecosystem continues! During the past month, we successfully onboarded new partners and released exciting product features, now available for your next IoT project.

Discover below what exciting updates we have prepared for you.

Assets

Asset Tags

Structure your devices by annotating them with Tags. This allows managing large amounts of Assets within a Workspace at once and brings more convenience by setting up Rules that apply to multiple Assets. Find out more about Asset Tags here.

Device Lifecycle Notifications

A daily email summary of device states in your Workspace informs you which devices are offline, have a weak signal, or have low battery. Be always up to date about your device's health. Find out more about Device Lifecycle Notifications here.

Custom fields

Manage your device fleet more efficiently by adding custom fields with additional information about your devices. Serial Number, Battery Replacement Date, or GPS coordinates are examples of custom fields that add valuable information to a device. Find out more about Custom fields here.

Cloud Connectors

Making further use of IoT data in enterprise applications can be relevant to launch a successful IoT project, depending on your needs. Therefore we have created several new Output Connectors to allow data processing, analytics, monitoring or maintenance solutions in state-of-the-art cloud systems.

Google Cloud Pub/Sub

The new Google Cloud Pub/Sub Output Connector is a fully managed, real-time messaging service that allows you to asynchronously send and receive messages between independent applications.

It enables building advanced solutions with low-power device data in the Google Cloud Pub/Sub to stream processing and data integration as well for monitoring, alerting, and logging. Find out more about it here.

InfluxDB

The fast, serverless real-time monitoring platform with a dashboarding engine, analytics service, event, and metrics processor is now available to be connected to as an Output Connector on akenza. Read more about how InfluxDB works with IoT Data here. Find how to connect to your InfluxDB here.
