This recap compares GE's Predix to other PaaS systems and explores tools from Silicon Labs for IoT / embedded development.


At the recent Dallas Predix meetup, the audience learnt how GE Predix is different from Cloud Foundry, IBM Bluemix, and other platforms. Embedded solutions for IoT with a focus on wireless / sensor technologies were also under discussion. Watch the video and slides from the meetup below.


Which services can set Predix apart?

Elena Travkina, IoT Development Practice Lead at Altoros, provided an insight into took Predix services and under-the-hood mechanisms. She also compared the platform to the existing alternatives: Cloud Foundry, IBM Bluemix, and AWS Elastic Beanstalk.

Then, Elena enumerated 14 portability concerns one may face when moving apps to an IoT platform. While talking about the likely scenarios of Predix evolution, she highlighted integration opportunities of ISV / SaaS providers, which may be interested in adding their products to the Predix catalog.
