Getting Started with the IBM Internet of Things Cloud

What is the  Internet of Things Cloud ? The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to automatically transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet.

You can learn more detail in the below youtube video.

So what is the  IBM Internet of Things Cloud? What is the relationship with BlueMix?Don;t worry,I will show some screenshot,you might understand it.

•Connect–Easily Register and connect “things” through a UI or APIs
•Collect–Collect and manage a time series view of data from “things”
•Assemble–Visually assemble events from things into logic flows
•Manage–Manage “thing” connections and subscriptions
•Build–Create applications that directly interact with connected “things”

IoT Cloud Quickstart is a tool to let embedded device developers connect
to the IoT and see data from their device, and to provide data for IoT application
developers to use.

  • It is not intended for production use.
  • It is a free service, there is no device or user registration step, and all data sent to
  • the Quickstart cloud could potentially be viewed by any internet user. 

IBM also provide Node-RED’s cool GUI for the Internet of Things.If you are interested you can visit BlueMix provide Node-Red service for user to use that .
