Edge2Web for AWS IoT SiteWise – Q&A
When will Edge2Web support for AWS IoT SiteWise be commercially available?
Edge2Web support for AWS IoT SiteWise is available today. Please contact email@example.com to discuss your needs and timetables.
Will Edge2Web continue to support the Siemens MindSphere IIoT platform?
Yes, absolutely. Siemens is an important Edge2Web partner and MindSphere is a world-class IoT environment. We are committed to supporting MindSphere and AWS IoT SiteWise equally. Edge2Web was designed to be a multi-platform solution. Expansion of our footprint to include AWS IoT SiteWise is driven by market interest, and by Edge2Web’s commitment to delivering exceptional value to our customers and partners.
Is Edge2Web aligned with AWS technical best practices?
Yes. Edge2Web products, security, and development practices have been evaluated and approved by AWS through the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) process. As defined by the FTR, Edge2Web is a well-architected AWS solution.
Does Edge2Web support other AWS cloud services in addition to AWS IoT SiteWise?
Yes. Although AWS IoT SiteWise provides powerful services for asset modeling, storage, and timeseries data ingestion/transformation, industrial applications typically require additional platform services for analytics, event detection and logging, file and database operations, human notification, and more. Edge2Web solutions natively support AWS platform services that are complementary to SiteWise as the foundation for advanced digital industrial applications.
How much do Edge2Web product subscriptions cost?
How can we purchase Edge2Web product subscriptions?
You can purchase Edge2Web product subscriptions using any of the following alternatives.
- Authorized Edge2Web resellers such as Engineering USA, DigiVisory, and others.

What are the main Edge2Web product offerings?
Edge2Web is a growing suite of low-code tools and runtimes that significantly reduce time-to-implementation of new digital industrial applications. Our products integrate deeply with leading IoT environments – for example, AWS IoT SiteWise – enabling industrial app builders and domain experts to rapidly build, deploy, and operate applications such as 24×7 asset and process monitoring, multi-level OEE, condition-based and predictive maintenance, production costing, energy management, service management, and many others.
Edge2Web’s primary commercial products are Director and Flow Server. Director is used to build interactive, multi-level dashboards, visualize data across assets, fleets, and sites, and much more. Flow Server is used for apps that drive continuous systems monitoring, batch analytics, event detection, and human notification. Edge2Web Developer is a low-cost developer-only version of Director and Flow Server intended primarily for partners who are building POCs for customers, and to demonstrate digital industrial concepts.
What is the purpose of Edge2Web Application Accelerators? How much do they cost and how are they licensed?
Edge2Web App Accelerators are high-order application components, built in Director and Flow Server, that enable accelerated implementation of popular industrial use cases such as high performance asset onboarding, OEE computation/visualization, event detection and notification, mobile fleet tracking, and more. Edge2Web App Accelerators are offered free of charge, with fully modifiable source elements, and with royalty-free distribution rights.
Can the Edge2Web applications integrate with other industrial systems besides AWS IoT SiteWise and Siemens MindSphere?
Yes. Edge2Web supports the REST/Swagger document exchange protocol. Any application, datastore or other resource that is accessible via REST/Swagger can be used in Edge2Web applications. Once a secure connection is established between Edge2Web and a target REST/Swagger endpoint, data from that system can be accessed by Edge2Web applications using the full power of Edge2Web Director and Flow Server.
