REST Connector

IoT and Industrie 4.0 Cloud Connectivity via REST Protocols

dataFEED REST Connector enables simple and efficient integration of production environments with their data into IT applications and Industrie 4.0 solutions. Using the REST Client functionality, production data can be transferred to a REST server or directly into IoT Cloud or Big Data applications, e.g. Bosch Production Performance Manager. The flexible, freely definable and adaptable JSON data format enables adaptation to the respective formats of the REST Servers.
