AWS enables you to create a secure IoT platform for connecting the devices that drive your organization, enabling new business models that better serve your customers. With Pinnacle Solutions and AWS, you can build IoT solutions that are secure and scalable, helping you improve business process efficiency, make proactive decisions, and better utilize the devices that power your organization. In the following chapters of our IoT Analytics on AWS Guide, you will learn all about the benefits of building IoT analytics solutions on AWS with Pinnacle Solutions.
AWS allows you to easily and securely connect billions of IoT devices to the cloud.
From devices driving smart manufacturing, asset tracking, and telemetry, more and more devices are being connected to the internet every day. No matter the industry, IoT delivers new opportunities in data, analytics and innovation.
Internet of Things can help your organization realize benefits including:
With AWS IoT and the help of Pinnacle Solutions’ AWS experts, you can have IoT applications that gather, process, analyze, and act on data generated by connected devices at global scale without having to manage any infrastructure or system administration.
AWS has a great 2 minute video on IoT use cases – “IoT is Everywhere: From Home to Work” – that we thought you’d enjoy watching.
There are billions of devices in homes, factories, oil wells, hospitals, cars, and thousands of other places. With the proliferation of devices, you increasingly need solutions to connect them, and collect, store, and analyze device data.
AWS IoT provides broad and deep functionality, spanning the edge to the cloud, so you can build IoT solutions for virtually any use case across a wide range of devices. Since AWS IoT integrates with AI services, you can make devices smarter, even without Internet connectivity.
Built on AWS, which is used by industry-leading customers around the world, AWS IoT can easily scale as your device fleet grows and your business requirements evolve. AWS IoT also offers the most comprehensive security features so you can create preventative security policies and respond immediately to potential security issues.
We’ve got a great fact sheet that dives into the AWS IoT offering. This fact sheet explores:
Industrial IoT (IIoT) bridges the gap between legacy industrial equipment and infrastructure and new technologies such as machine learning, cloud, mobile, and edge computing. Customers use IIoT applications for predictive quality and maintenance and to remotely monitor their operations from anywhere. AWS IoT services enable industrial companies to reason on top of operational data and improve performance, productivity, and efficiency of industrial processes.
When you use AWS IoT for your IIoT applications, you can:
AWS IoT helps you collect data from the plant floor with a local gateway, structure and label that data, and generate real time KPIs and metrics to make better data-driven decisions. You can also add machine learning to your industrial environments using pre-built templates.
Quickly connect large and diverse fleets of devices and maintain an inventory with static and dynamic state information. You’ll know the state of your devices every second, and can combine devices and web services to rapidly build IoT applications with little to no code.
Even with intermittent cloud connectivity, AWS IoT enables you to continuously monitor data from your equipment and fleets of devices deployed across many locations for changes in operations and to trigger appropriate responses when events occur.
Built-in device authentication and authorization, data encryption, and access control to device data keep devices and device data secure. You can continuously audit security policies, monitor for abnormal behavior, receive alerts, and take corrective actions.

Using AWS IoT, industrial manufacturers can build predictive quality models which help them build better products and reduce recalls.
Asset Condition Monitoring
With AWS IoT, you can capture all IoT data, such as temperature, vibration, and error codes that indicate if equipment is performing optimally.
With AWS IoT, you can continuously monitor and infer equipment status, health, and performance to detect and address issues in real-time.
Building a successful IoT solution depends on the tens of billions of devices that sit at the edge, in our homes and offices, in factories and oil fields and agricultural fields, in planes and ships, and automobiles – everywhere.
With AWS IoT services, you can harness the data generated by your IoT edge devices and enable them to act intelligently. And, with AWS your IoT and edge solutions will be secure at the device, connection, and data level.
You can use AWS IoT to manage billions of devices and trillions of messages. AWS IoT makes it easy to securely connect microcontroller and microprocessor-based devices, capture device state, and provide updates over the air. Edge computing brings compute closer to the point where data is generated so you can enable devices to take actions, aggregate data, and filter it locally on the device in near real time.
With the edge, security is always a concern. AWS IoT edge software comes with a variety of services and security capabilities that are designed to secure your devices, connectivity, and data.
We thought you’d be interested in AWS’s white paper that takes a deep dive into the specifics of these services and security capabilities.
A lot of our customers came to us with IoT Analytics ambitions, but were at a loss of how to start. They knew the pains they needed to address – unplanned downtime and maintenance, under-utilized equipment, low product quality – and they suspected IoT could help, but they didn’t know how to get from where they were to where they wanted to be.
That’s where we came in. With our IoT Analytics and AWS expertise to help them, our customers were able to eliminate the pains their company was facing, making them a hero at their company.
And it all started with a 15 minute conversation to explore how we could help aid them on their quest. We’d love to hear about what’s on the horizon for your company and help you become a hero for your company.
