The Data Service Development Kit is designed for any app developer who loves challenges. You don’t have to worry about how the data gets into your app and how you manage it. The Data Service takes care of all that for you.
About Data Service
Thanks to the perfect cooperation of the Siemens apps, you have, with Data Service Development Kit, access to all data sources that are compatible with Data Service and can use them with your app. The calculation of aggregations within Data Service even enables you to provide sum, maximum and minimum values to your customer without the need for another app.
The free Development Kit provides you with a Docker Image that launches the Data Service API on the developer’s computer and makes it callable. With this tool, you can develop your customer’s app entirely without Industrial Edge access on your development computer. Nor do you need to own a real device that provides you with data. With our simulation service, plant data can be simulated without further ado.
Area of application
The Data Service Development Kit offers you the possibility to make your app quickly and easily fit for Industrial Edge. Using the integrated API interface, you save your app’s data to the Data Service database structure and retrieve it when needed. This means that other apps, such as Performance Insight or Notifier, can easily access the data and use it for themselves.
After the development phase, your app can be handed over to your customer together with the Data Service. In a few simple steps, the customer connects the Data Service with the already available connectors and thus creates a quick link to his plant.
