End-of-contract data extraction
For Public Cloud Hosting in AWS (or equivalent) Access to the Cumulocity Hosting Services will be removed upon termination of the Agreement.
Customer will be able to download a final backup of their Data within 90 days’ after termination of the Agreement (the “Exit Period”).
After the Exit Period, the Customer's environment/tenant and Data will be deleted following industry-standard practices.
End-of-contract process
At end of contract - customer typically decide to continue with the service. The date for end of the Contract will be based on sufficient notice by providing notification from either party and the procedure will be by mutual consent and as documented. Due to the specific needs of Govt organisations, this end-of-contract activity will be documented mutually at the time of drafting the Contract so that there is accountability on both sides for completing tasks and progressing towards graceful closure of the Contract including extraction of Data owned by the Customer. The commercials for this part of the Contract will have to be pre agreed prior to commencement of the project.

Differences between the mobile and desktop service
Cumulocity Supports HTML5, rendering done by Browser "Cumulocity visualises your sensor data centrally and graphically through its modern web user interface. The user interface automatically adapts itself to the devices you connect, no configuration required. Being responsive, it also adapts itself to the web browser that you use. For example, if you use a mobile phone or tablet with limited screen size, it will change user interface controls to use less screen estate."

User support accessibility
WCAG 2.1 AA or EN 301 549
API
Yes
What users can and can't do using the API
Cumulocity exposes its complete functionality through programming interfaces (APIs). This means that all of Cumulocity’s functionality is available to use in different contexts outside of what Cumulocity directly provides – in your own applications, in your own devices. In contrast to many other M2M and IoT platforms, Cumulocity uses the same APIs and the same interface technology for all use cases. As a consequence, you have a wider range of choices in putting intelligence into your IoT devices, depending on how powerful they are. You also have to use only one set of APIs and one technology to build a complete solution from device to application on your own.

Cumulocity uses HTTP and REST which is today the most widely used interfacing technology and which works on any Internet-connected device ranging from small embedded microcontrollers up to desktop PCs. The secure variant, HTTPS, is used for the most security
critical applications and will give you the best possible security. The plugin concept of Cumulocity enables you to write new user interface functionality that will seamlessly extend the existing Cumulocity application http://cumulocity.com/guides/reference/rest-implementation/
In addition, a Microservice API is providedfor developing and deploying Microservices to Cumulocity IoT.

Customisation available
Yes
Description of customisation
Cumulocity is based on W3C Web Standards and supports Open Source. Cumulocity allows extensibility of the IoT Device management functionality through implementing customised Microervices.
The Web user Interface can be customised using widgets and HTML5, Angular Java Script.
The Cumulocity functionality already provides a wide range of device management, visualisation and control options.
Furthermore it produces custom visualisation, new control widgets and custom business logic.
Cumulocity has extensive customisation options, for example:
*Write alarm rules to reprioritize or suppress alarms and to define your SLA parameters.
*Use real-time to implement real-time business rules.For example, get an email when critical events happen, or trigger automated actions on devices in that case.
*Set up a graphical dashboard with your most important KPIs.
* Subscribe to plugins that contribute new functionality to the Cumulocity application

Scaling

Independence of resources
Most relevant Cumulocity scaling variables are:
Transaction per seconds
Less relevant: “Aways-on” (device push) concurrently connected devices Number and complexity of CEP rules
Even less relevant: Number of tenants (unless < few hundreds) Number of devices Number of users

Cumulocity Scales horizontally by instantiating more nodes High-Availability uses load balancer and NoSQL features All external traffic inbound terminates on Load balancer, Client affinity required Cumulocity Application Tier is mostly stateless. Database Tier uses sharding where the Sharding is based on device id.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Service Availability 99.90% based on Web Services availability measured over 5 minute intervals per calendar month (excluding standard scheduled maintenance). This excludes the Availability of the underlying Cloud /AWS Infrastructure Option for Users to be refunded may be feasible if a separate agreement had been exclusively drawn up mutually for a Bespoke Uplifted Service. This is when the Cumulocity IoT platform - could not meet the mutually agreed guaranteed levels of availability of Cumulocity software due to unforeseen circumstances.
Approach to resilience
Cumulocity runs on AWS, Azure and Alibaba as cloud providers. Cumulocity IoT installs only on virtual machines, Cumulocity support VMWare and OpenStack and the service is designed to be resilient. More details available on request. Cumulocity can be deployed with bespoke High Availability architectures and Geographic Resiliency- as required for specific projects by Govt Customers

Risk analysis
Cumulocity ensures that Customer data stays confidential and cannot be
tampered with through an end-to-end implementation of HTTPS from devices to applications. It uses up-to-date encryption technology that has been independently rated "A" by SSLlabs (https://www.ssllabs.com/). Any communication with Cumulocity is subject to individual authentication and authorization All functionality of Cumulocity is coherently implemented with the same set of publicly documented, sessionless REST APIs. This means that none of the popular "session stealing" techniques will work with Cumulocity. To capture security-relevant events, Cumulocity offers an auditing interface which enables applications and agents to write audit logs, which are persistently stored and cannot be externally modified after being written. Cumulocity also writes own audit records related to login and device control operations.
