A typical IoT application design workflow consists of finding (or developing) an appropriate sensor for the application purpose, then selecting a communication network, locating a suitable database and finally writing an application to glue everything together.
The effort involved in such an endeavour is daunting and time consuming: the firmware development for an IoT sensor can be quite complex, especially if the functions required are high level (e.g. over the air firmware update); often the communication layer is hardcoded in the chosen network technology and the high level application development could quickly escalate in complexity when adding functions such as rating and billing or intelligent error management.
Altior completely shifts this paradigm by working on the invariant parts of the service development. Because of this, Altior is designed to be, as much as possible, a codeless environment.
With Altior, the IoT service design doesn’t require software development skills but can be performed by a trained operator or a power user.
