A complex project facing time-to-market
The major challenge Sowee had to face was time-to-market as they wanted to follow a very aggressive delivery plan combining electronic products and a comprehensive Cloud-based service:
The extremely short project schedule was even more challenging considering that the company was starting from scratch. Sowee connected station is a true IoT device: it has multiple sensors that collect, store and process data, it provides rich GUI features to the user, it runs on battery, it is capable of firmware upgrades, it connects over Wi-Fi. It also establishes connections to several platforms in the cloud: MicroEJ Store for hosting and deploying apps and firmware images, LogMeIn Xively for data collection and firmware upgrade, Salesforce.com for managing customer accounts and aggregating clouds from ecosystem partners.
