Tridium, Inc. a commercial Internet of Things (IoT) software technology, has announced it has released the beta version of its next generation IoT platform, Niagara 4.
Tridium began accepting applications for the Niagara 4 Beta programme in September and received strong interest from hundreds of applicants. Niagara 4 beta testing will be conducted among a carefully selected group of projects spanning a wide array of application types and markets across the Niagara Community. Beta programme participants will have the opportunity to benefit from a head-start with Niagara 4 as well as a competitive advantage on launch day.
“Our Niagara 4 Beta programme is a critical component of Tridium’s ability to deliver the best possible product,” said Pranay Prakash, vice president of global marketing and product strategy. “We received strong interest in the Beta programme and have a wide array of excellent projects and companies represented. With Niagara 4, we believe the opportunity to achieve operational excellence is even greater than before. We thank our partners for showing commitment to the next generation of the Niagara Framework.”
Niagara 4 builds on the 15-year legacy of the Niagara Framework, helping organisations to achieve optimal efficiency. End-users will find the latest generation of Niagara faster and easier to use —making it possible to directly access, analyse and act on a wide range of operational data. A truly open framework, Niagara 4 delivers a variety of significant improvements to help businesses take full advantage of the Internet of Things, including advanced visualisation and new search, security and navigation tools. Features include:
- New HTML 5 based user interface and simpler navigation
- Enhanced performance and scalability
- Improved security
- Easier application development
- Data tagging and advanced search capabilities
With nearly a half-million installations worldwide, the open Niagara Framework is quickly becoming the operating system of the Internet of Things. Its open API, open distribution business model and open protocol support give businesses and developers the freedom to choose how they work, what they build and with whom they partner. It enables them to connect and control devices, while normalising, visualising and analysing data in ways never before imagined.
The Niagara Framework improves strategic decision-making on energy management and environmental impacts, allowing for optimised performance and cost reductions that can help businesses be more competitive and more profitable.
