The newly launched platform allows developers to create a complete development environment in minutes according to their need and enables them to build their applications using their preferred languages and protocols unlike other cloud platforms. In addition, the Covisint platform includes a complete set of RESTful APIs to expose the core functional capabilities of the platform, enabling rapid solution development.

“Time to market, freedom of choice, and ultimately solution performance are critical to IoT solution development, and our next-generation platform was designed with this in mind,” says Steve Asam, Chief Technology Officer, Covisint. Commenting on the future of the platform, he further adds that their API-first, IaaS-agnostic architecture is a game changer for developer productivity and global scalability for IoT, IdM and B2B solutions.
