Integration

Unleash the power of your data anywhere, anytime

Seamlessly integrate the Sensolus solution with your favorite business systems such as ERPs and data visualisation tools, or directly extract/inject data using our SDK.

Integrations

A wide variety of ways to integrate

Couple with ERP

Enrich your assets with business metadata from your favorite ERP system

Use company data tools

Export as Excel or PowerBI and create impressive dashboards

Integrated user directories

Integrate single-sign-on (SSO) and get your users on board with one-click auto registration.

Pull/push REST API

Get programmatic access to the Sensolus platform

Most popular system integrations

Business data often lives in the ERP. Some of our customers use the Sensolus platform API to make shipment data immediately visible in our web UI.

The Azure (and by extension Office) platform provides a rich set of tools that are ready to consume our data.

To give a few examples of possible integrations:

  • Send a sensor data notification to a Teams channel as soon as a sensor crosses a threshold.
  • Push data into a PowerBI dataset and build a web-based visualization on top.
  • Authenticate users from their Microsoft 365 accounts.

The AWS cloud services provide many excellent building blocks for a solution.

A few integration examples are:

  • Using MQTT infrastructure to ingest our data.
  • Creating specialised APIs on top of our standard APIs.

We leverage open-source tools significantly to build our solution and Grafana is certainly one of our favourite tools for monitoring our full solution.

It is easy to receive asset data in a backend which is Grafana. Simply define a web use and populate it with backend data (e.g. Prometheus). Then it’s all about visualisation.

Kibana & Elasticsearch are another pair which can be leveraged easily. Define a webhook and use it to populate data into an Elasticsearch document index. Kibana can then be used to create dashboards.

Explore and analyse data with your tools of choice

Export to Excel or PowerBI and create impressive data visualizations

Levarage detailed Excel reports

The platform provides a wide range of standard reports in XLS or CSV format. Alternatively, plug in your own Excel report templates for reporting the way you want it.

Consult your data directly on the PowerBI platform

Use predefined data exports in the freely available Power BI desktop application. You can select one of our Power BI templates or be creative and design your own.

Single sign-On

We connect to all major cloud platforms and directories for single sign-on and auto-registration, including Azure, GSuite, Active Directory, etc. This saves you from manually configuring users.

Single sign-on

With SSO, you can leverage your already existing identity management infrastructure (e.g. Azure, GSuite and Active Directory) so users can authenticate using their organisation’s credentials and have one fewer password to remember.

Auto-registration

Users can be automatically on-boarded when they have been authenticated by the organisation’s identity management system.

Discover the power of the Sensolus pull/push REST API

Pull data straight from the platform or have it pushed to your HTTP/MQTT end point

Direct experimentation with Swagger

Explore the API with our Swagger UI and play around with the various API calls possible from the web application

Open API spec

The API is formally described according to the OpenAPI 3.0 specifications. This descriptor allows you to generate client libraries in your programming language of choice.

Supports multiple protocols

We support standard JSON formatted HTTP REST calls (pull API) as well as HTTP/MQTT callbacks to your own server (push API)
