The Flow Director Platform

You develop your logic by connecting components to flows, graphically without coding. Chose from a set of component libraries for any use case. Then connect, deploy and activate. View the messages live and inspect their content while they travel through your components.

Scale to your needs as Flow Director can give you a whole network of deployment nodes at your fingertips, all done from a single orchestration screen, no config file hassle.

How it works

Based on SwiftMQ

Flow Director extends the open source messaging system SwiftMQ by taking control over SwiftMQ's internal microservice platform SwiftMQ Streams and uses its full capabilities.

Flow Director can be connected to an existing SwiftMQ network but can also run fully separate.

It is not required that you run SwiftMQ as your messaging system!

Implemented with Flows

All logic will be created graphically by connecting components to flows. No coding. Flows run event-driven and independent in their own transactional context within a SwiftMQ router. A true microservice.

Flows are orchestrated within the whole connected SwiftMQ router network. They are deployed, activated, deactivated, undeployed and updated from a central, web-based orchestration panel.

Organized in Apps

A Flow Director App is an isolated application that contains all flows and dashboards and all authentication information that belong to this app. A user logs into an app, not into Flow Director.

Apps can be exported and imported by drag and drop. It is easy to perform backups or to transfer it from a development into a test or production environment or just share it with others.

Integrate Everything

Flow Director can integrate any messaging system in- and outbound. It provides access to databases as well as to any other system that offers a REST API. Plus - it offers a REST API itself so you can expose any flow as a secure web service. And all this by simple drag and drop of flow components. No coding!

Integrate IoT Edge and Cloud automatically

Automatic Device Provision in IoT Clouds

Your IoT clients just connect and send their messages through plain MQTT. Flow Director automatically starts the onboarding (provisioning) of the clients as cloud IoT devices in the background on the first message sent while your clients just keep sending. No special configuration, no TLS, no special message tags required.

Flow Director takes the burden from you to generate certificates and private keys and install them. It does it on the fly. It has never been easier to move your IoT data to the cloud!

Automatic cloud provisioning is supported for Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google GCP.
