Last year we announced our new partnership with IBM to bring our IoT Platform capabilities to Bluemix, the IBM Cloud development platform. Our goal was to make it easy to launch IoT apps quickly, reliably, and at scale. This blog post shows you how to get started with AT&T’s Flow Designer Service on the IBM Bluemix platform.
Flow Deisgner is an intuitive visual tool that enables you, the IoT developer, to create your prototype, iterate and improve through multiple versions, then deploy your application. AT&T Flow Designer offers nodes that are pre-configured to allow easy access to multiple data sources, cloud services, device profiles, and communication methods. The integrations are already done for you, so you only have to focus on wiring the building blocks together to create your IoT application.
Using the Flow Designer service in IBM Bluemix
You can use Flow Designer directly from the Bluemix console. You will need a Bluemix account. If you don’t have one, you can register now for a free 30-day trial.
From the Bluemix Catalog (shown below), perform a search for AT&T Flow Designer service.
Click on the Get Started For Free button to create your free developer account.
That’s it, you are now ready to begin your project. If you have a project idea in mind already, you will want to review the Getting Started guide.
Flow Designer Documentation and Support
Flow Designer documentation is available for all sample apps, nodes, and flows. Further help is provided on the FAQ page, or through customer support (you can also send email inquiries to email@example.com).
