Using Predix Time Series in a Spring Boot App

Pavel Orda


User Account and Authentication (UAA) is an identity management service in Cloud Foundry, used as an OAuth2 provider by the GE Predix platform. Being responsible for managing timed measurements, Time Series, in its turn, enables to efficiently and concurrently store data, as well as quickly retrieve it.

This post explains how to configure both services and to start using them in a sample Spring Boot app having two controllers (for querying and ingesting data).

Sophie Turol


According to Cisco, IoT will increase private sector profits by 21% and add $19 trillion to the global economy by 2020. At the recent Houston Predix meetup, the attendees were plunged into a brief overview of the Industrial Internet (IIoT) market.

A number of the common challenges faced by the companies from different industry domains were explored, as well as the ways to solve them. Some figures were also revealed, demonstrating how Industrial Internet technologies help to cut down on costs, decrease the crime rate, improve transportation experience, etc.

IoT Prototype: Light Monitoring with NodeRED Components in Predix

Ilya Drabenia

GE-Predix-Industrial-Lighting-MonitorNodeRED is an open source IoT tool that helps to reduce development efforts when working with hardware, APIs, and services. However, how long exactly would it take to build something tangible? What if we used it with a PaaS?

Our team has created some NodeRED components for GE Predix when working on a prototype for a light monitoring system. Here is a detailed account of the project, including its source code, data flow, hardware details, etc.

Collecting Time Series Data with Predix (a Golang API Wrapper Included)

Stas Turlo


In this post, we show how to work with the Predix Time Series API using our Go library. We’ve created the wrapper to provide a more convenient way to interact with the Time Series service from Go: successful API queries return native Go structs that can be used immediately, with no need for type assertions.
