Cumulocity IoT Platform Integration with Microsoft Teams

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging paradigm that is transforming the traditional way of living into a high-tech lifestyle by enabling the communication between electronic devices and sensors through the internet to facilitate and ease our lives. With the increasing implementation of IoT, we can observe a great transformation in our daily routine.

Cumulocity IoT is an independent device and application management IoT platform. Some of the key features are:

  • Connect devices, receive, and send data securely to the platform.
  • Manage your devices, manage device onboarding, manage lifecycle like sending software updates and firmware updates.
  • Support real-time streaming and predictive analytics and helps users to visualize results in very modern dashboards.
  • It is also API enabled which allows you to integrate wide enterprise and enhance business process and business applications.

Using the Cumulocity IoT APIs, one can develop a simple application using Microsoft PowerApps and PowerAutomate and integrate only the required features of IoT platform with Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft PowerApps is a tool that allows users to create custom applications and leverage multiple features of the Office 365 and Microsoft platform. The applications can be accessed via mobile devices or web browsers and can be added to Microsoft Teams for any channel. With various security measures in place, users with channel permissions can access these apps as well.

Login to the platform, monitor alarms and events, trigger operations are some of the use cases developed in this POC.
