Apama Community Edition now runs on Raspberry Pi, extending support for edge computing to ARM-based devices
Software AG has added a new IoT Analytics kit to its Apama Community Edition. Provided free of charge as Open Source Software under the Apache License, v2.0, it also runs on Raspberry Pi.
Apama Community Edition is a free version of the Apama Streaming Analytics platform. It enables developers to download the Apama software, build streaming analytics applications, and put those applications into production.
Apama Community Edition contains most of the functionality and features of the premium version and enables developers to develop and run small to medium-sized scale proof-of-concepts, projects and applications.
The IoT Analytics Kit for the Apama Community Edition contains a set of event-based, analytical micro-services used for the development of IoT applications. Examples include analytics that calculate the normal range of numeric values and create an alert if these ranges have been exceeded or breached. Other analytic services include Threshold Breach, Missing Data, Quasher, Variance, and Gradient. With Raspberry Pi compatibility, Apama Community Edition can be used to build streaming analytics applications or act as an ARM-based Edge gateway or Edge device.
Project samples are included with the software as well as a plug-in that leverages the GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pin on the Raspberry Pi computer allowing the seamless connection of additional devices.
The Apama Core Community Edition Runtime allows developers to build applications on top of Apama Community Edition and then distribute these applications free of charge.
