Our latest product update offers enterprise-grade features that will take your IoT projects to the next level. These updates are designed to elevate your IoT projects from the PoC phase to large-scale deployments, providing you with greater control, improved data governance, and unparalleled transparency.

Let's dive into the exciting features of our latest update:

New Output Connectors for Analytics Data Sinks

We understand the importance of data analytics in making informed business decisions. That's why we've introduced new output connectors that enable you to seamlessly store data directly in your SQL database. Supported databases include MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Oracle DB, and MS SQL. With this feature, you can harness the full potential of your data by integrating it with popular Business Intelligence tools like Power BI, Tableau, datapine, google looker studio, preset and many more.

Updated Asset Filters

Managing a large fleet of devices can be challenging without the right tools. That's where our advanced Asset Filtering tool comes in. We've significantly improved the search and filtering functions for your asset inventory. Whether you're dealing with a handful of devices or a vast fleet, you can now easily locate and manage your assets. This is particularly useful for large-scale deployments where device management can be challenging.

Custom Device Types Improvements

Being able to write your own payload decoders is key for integrating new devices into akenza. Our Custom Device Types have been a favorite for their adaptability, and with our latest updates, they’ve just gotten better.

The script editor now supports enhanced debugging with console.log outputs and allows for the saving of multiple example payloads, making testing more efficient. The development process is accelerated by the ability to duplicate scripts from the library, bypassing the need to start from scratch, and is further enhanced by improved code auto-completion functionality.

Additionally, data schemas can now be created and edited directly within the UI, with automatic or manual generation options available, providing a structured and contextualized approach to data management. You can assign a name, description, and type to each data point and re-use that information later on in your end application.

Transparency is key to managing IoT costs effectively. Our Billing Cockpit provides you with a direct view of your product usage and offers transparent cost control. You can now monitor your IoT expenditure such as Datapoint Storage Days and Data Ingestion Units in real-time, allowing you to better optimize your IoT resources.
