New software release – individual expandability thanks to i-flow SDK

Munich, July 2, 2024 – i-flow is pleased to announce the release of the new software version 2.4. In addition to some exciting functionalities such as Protobuf support and a significant increase in performance, the new Software Development Kit (SDK) is a particular focus. The SDK enables developers worldwide to customize and extend the i-flow software to meet individual requirements.


Benefits of the i-flow SDK

Expandability: The i-flow SDK offers developers even easier expansion options to tailor i-flow to individual requirements. This means that specially written services (e.g. interfaces to OT/IT systems or third-party software such as AI applications) can be integrated. This is crucial, as different plants, systems and environments require individual solutions.

Easier development thanks to ready-made modules: The new SDK offers ready-made building blocks (e.g. example implementations) that facilitate the integration of individual services. Developers can save time and resources as they no longer have to program everything from scratch.

Any programming language possible: The extensions (services) can be written in any programming language. The service is integrated into i-flow via a defined HTTP interface. Thereby, any Connect offers integrated middleware support that includes JSON parsing and secure token authentication.


Our customers benefit from even greater flexibility and efficiency when integrating individual systems and use cases into the Industrial Unified Namespace (UNS).” adds Timo Vormweg (CTO of i-flow).
