Hivekit Cloud

Fully managed spatial data and logic platform

What is it?

Hivekit Cloud is a developer platform designed as the data-backbone for spatial applications. It provides application programming interfaces (APIs) and software development kits (SDKs) that allow developers to track and monitor the movement of people and vehicles, stream real-time updates, and execute predefined logic based on spatial events. Hivekit Cloud is built to handle large-scale, complex, and spatially-aware applications, taking the heavy lifting off the developers' shoulders and enabling them to focus on creating better user-centered experiences without having to worry about the infrastructure powering them.

What is it not?

Hivekit is an API platform - it does not provide maps or routing, deep spatial analysis capabilities, or domain-specific features like fleet management - although all of these can be built on top of it. You can learn more about how Hivekit fits into the ecosystem of spatial offerings here.

What can it do?

Why should you use it?

It is surprisingly challenging to build the infrastructure necessary to run large-scale spatial apps, be it for ride-sharing, delivery tracking, logistics, staff management, or site coordination.

Modern cloud offerings are geared towards short-lived, largely stateless request/response communication, where it is easy to scale server clusters up and down based on demand. Handling the long-lived, stateful, persistent connectivity required for spatial end-user apps is a largely underserved use-case.

This is especially true when it comes to executing logic based on spatial events, e.g., sending you a notification if your delivery rider gets close to your door. Stream-processors and business rules engines are hard to set up and run and are largely geared for non-time-sensitive batch processing. Having Hivekit's logic scripts that are instantly and automatically evaluated for every data point provides an easy and scalable solution, letting you focus on creating stunning end-user experiences rather than handling complex infrastructure.
