SenRa Announces New Release of Ginjer platform

As the IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) markets mature, and analysts’ forecasts continue to show steady growth in the number of connected devices around the world, providers of IoT/IIoT software platforms continue to invest in vying to become a platform of choice among developers.

Most industry analyst firms show more than 600 platforms available, with the most well-known and largest among them Microsoft Azure, AWS Greengrass, ClearBlade, Google Cloud, Voracity, Particle, ThingWorx, IBM Cloud, Samsung Artik Cloud, and various open source platforms like Linux EdgeX Foundry.

The very definition of IoT/IIoTplatforms varies, with some providing certain expertise and functionality, and others striving to deliver “full-stack” or “end-to-end” capabilities.  A platform usually has more than one tech layer and is used to manage and automate connected devices. The more advanced “out-of-the-box” platforms enable developers to connect hardware at the edge (sensors, actuators), antennas, access points or gateways, local data networks (LoRaWAN, BLE, Zigbee, etc.), long haul networks (Internet with overlays for virtual private networking), cloud, applications and end-user GUI and UX, often called admin consoles and dashboards.

Earlier this month, SenRa announced a major release (2.0) of its Ginjer platform, adding more “out-of-the-box” capabilities from the basic (collecting data, converting data, processing data at the edge, and sending it to cloud applications and storage) to the more sophisticated (integration with enterprise systems, analytics, automation and business intelligence).

SenRa’s announcement itemizes “powerful reporting tools, real-time data visualization, device management capabilities and user access management features in shorter amount of time at low-cost,” as features, and reiterates that they believe their platform is simpler to use, less expensive to buy and scale, and richer with business operation intel.

“Ginjer 2.0 has allowed us to deploy projects in a fraction of the time. With Ginjer 1.0 it took us 2 months to develop a new solution for our customers, but with the new 2.0 release we can do it in 2 days,” said Ali Hosseini, CEO, SenRa. “We want our customers to feel empowered to develop their own solutions and deploy their projects just as fast as we have.”

Ginjer is agnostic to the communication protocol, and claims to provide management of devices, data visualization, and API integrations for mobile application development.

The pre-configured solutions cannot be changed by developers, but can be modified or enhanced over time by SenRa as the primary owner and manager of the global “operating system” platform.
