App Development Concepts


This infographic shows the application lifecycle.

Create app: Use our low-code development platform mendix or develop your application using your own programming language and environment. To access Industrial IoT data and capabilities we provide a comprehensive set of Insights Hub APIs and Services.

Host app: Choose between hosting your app on Insights Hub hosting environment Cloud Foundry or host your app in another infrastructure you prefer.

Integrate app: Integrate your app into Insights Hub. Your app becomes fully integrated into Insights Hub. This means that your App is not only capable of consuming Insights Hub's API’s but is also visible on the Launchpad.

Test app: If available, you can use your test environments to try out your application within a safe environment before bringing it to production.

Make app available: Choose from the following four options to make your app available.

  1. Assign your App to your own Production Environment and give customers access to use it.
  2. Assign your app to someone else who will host and operate your app. Customers can then buy the app from this operator and use it with their own data.
  3. Add your app to the Industrial IoT Store, so customers can buy and use it with their own data.
  4. Provision your app to a customer’s productive environment to be used with customer data.

Use app: Begin creating value by using the capabilities of your app in combination with Insights Hub.
