Data is regarded as the major value proposition of IoT. The ability to receive real time data from different sources, store it and process it into actionable insights to transform and optimize processes either in real time or not is of immense value. This is one of the reasons why device cloud is one of the most important (and sometimes most expensive) part of the architecture of any IoT solution/Project, since the data must be stored in a place where it can be readily accessed for further analysis. For individuals looking to deploy pilots and prototypes of scalable projects on a budget, coughing up the huge sums required for data storage on platforms like Azure, can be quite the burden, and while there are tons of free IoT platforms that can be used, they sometimes have one restriction or the other that makes them not suitable in certain situations. For today’s tutorial, we will look at a cheap/free alternative way to store your data in the cloud. We will look at how you can connect your IoT based devices to Google Sheet so to be able to log data.
