AWS Marketplace now has an IoT discovery webpage that makes it easier for you to buy IoT software from popular software vendors that’s integrated with, or running on, AWS Cloud services. This means you can use our software billed to your AWS account, rather than billed by us – keeping things nice and simple.
“Today’s announcement is about making life even easier for our customers. Already our customers can use DevicePilot to manage their devices on Amazon Web Services (AWS) without having to write a single line of code. Now with today’s news they can even pay for DevicePilot on their AWS bill too, making deploying, managing and scaling IoT devices a truly seamless experience” said Pilgrim Beart, DevicePilot CEO.
Doordeck, a DevicePilot customer, are the creators of a smartphone- and cloud-based access control system which operates any lock from an app, removing the need for peripheral access control hardware.
As Doordeck CTO Michael Barnwell explains: “We built our connected locks, cloud service and application and started trials. Then as their number of paying customers grew we suddenly realised that we’d (rightly) been so focused on developing our proposition that we’d started to lose track of really important questions such as: How many locks have we deployed? Where are they? Who has them? What software are they running? Are they working properly? Are our customers happy?”
“We used DevicePilot to help answer these questions and more. Because we already used AWS IoT, integration was really easy. We set up a DevicePilot dashboard in our office showing the live status of all our devices, with the key metrics that matter to our customers and whether those are getting better or worse. For day-to-day operations, DevicePilot allows our Ops team to monitor the whole device estate live. It also allows our business people to ask business questions about our device estate at any time and get immediate answers.”
“Now with today’s news we can take the next step and buy DevicePilot as-a-Service direct on AWS Marketplace as part of one consolidated bill, freeing us from unnecessary bureaucracy.”
“We are excited that DevicePilot has listed their IoT Operational Management suite on AWS Marketplace. With AWS Marketplace, we can continuously eliminate friction and offer customers and partners an easy and fast way to procure and deploy solutions,” said Barry Russell, General Manager of Global Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
