Building a comprehensive ecosystem unlocking the full potential of IoT connectivity
requires seamless automation of a vast number of IoT technologies, and Akenza emerges as a powerful ally in the endeavour.
In this blog article, I explore the combination of Akenza and Python to open new avenues for intelligent,
real-time IoT integrations and monitoring.
"Towards a cyber-physical system for sustainable and smart building: a use case for optimizing water consumption on a SmartCampus"
is an Open Access paper via Springer Publishing that uses Python, Zato and other open source technologies for IoT integrations.
REST connections, how to schedule API integrations, how to connect to HL7 FHIR servers, SFTP automation and Microsoft 365 IMAP integrations
are the latest quick tips in the series designed for Python integrators and automation practitioners.
An integral part of
Zato, its scalable, service-oriented scheduler makes it is possible to execute
high-level API integration processes as background tasks. The scheduler runs periodic jobs which in turn
trigger services and services are what is used to integrate systems.
Microsoft 365 requires for all IMAP connections to use OAuth2. This can be challenging to configure
in server-side automation and orchestration processes so Zato offers an automated that lets you access emails
without requiring you to get into low-level OAuth2 details.
OAuth is often employed in processes requiring permissions to be granted to frontend applications and end users.
Yet, what we typically need in API systems integrations is a way to secure connections between the integration
middleware and backend systems without a need for any ongoing human interactions. OAuth can be a good choice
for that scenario and this article shows how it can be achieved.
