Architecture

IOTICS is a new architecture paradigm.
We enable secure, flexible, right-time, multi-party data exchange.
Cooperate with confidence and scale.

"Coopetition" is the new paradigm in a world where" no man is an island".

This new paradigm is becoming increasingly prominent between parties within and without the enterprise.

And coopetition - at scale - is possible by enabling assets to seamlessly and securely interoperate with each other.

  • Sensed

     - found identified as suitable

  • Processed

     - transformed and enriched

  • Consumed

     - collected and understood

  • Repurposed

     - made available as an end product

Here's How

At IOTICS be believe we've found the way of making it all possible, no matter how big or small your project it or how quickly you want to proceed by combining semantics, streaming and decentralization

Assets are virtualized as Digital Twins in IOTICSpace: IOTICS' own cloud hosted platform.

Any asset can be digitized: things, processes, people, concepts, etc.

Each digital twin provides a secure gateway to the asset's

Assets' metadata and data are semantically modelled to allow machine to machine findability accessibility, interoperability and reusability

Assets' data can be fetched from any source - sensors, databases, APIs - and aggregated in the twin and selectively shared or exchanged

Multiple parties joining together in a decentralized network of IOTICSpaces assets' data and metadata can flow freely and

partner-header-line

Virtualisation and symmetry

IOTICS digital twins are virtual representations of "real" assets. "Real" within an application domain: not only objects in the physical world but, in general, entities that are meaningful within a domain (a process, an algorithm, a digital entity like a record in a database, …)

Digital twins securely mediate interactions between the real assets: two real assets can interact with each other only by means of their digital counterparts.

This "symmetry" provides inherent security because twins can access each others metadata in order to make an informed decision whether the interaction should happen or not, and data and commands exchanges are intercepted by the twin logic before being dispatched to the real asset.

IOTICS digital twins are not only a simple reflection of a "real" asset. In IOTICS, custom logic can be provided in the twin with the effect of managing the assets' metadata, enhancing the behaviour of the real asset, compensate for its limitations, augment its state with supplementary data, process inbound data or events coming from other twins in IOTICS.

This custom logic can be programmed to fit into existing ELT pipelines, as AI/ML, or deployed on prem or on cloud, according to the desired policies. Moreover it can provide state management to keep the "real" asset in sync with the twin.

Security is at the core of IOTICS. Real assets interactions are mediated by twins, acting as gateways. IOTICS security infrastructure allows twin interactions to be securely brokered by allowing each party to be in control of its own end of the interaction.

By using a data self sovereign approach, IOTICS allows to shift security to the edge and as such enabling interactions to occur in a trust-less environment.
