When many organizations decide that they are ready to develop and deploy an IoT solution they want to know how and where to get started. Fortunately, tools are now available that can meet these needs. Today, these tools exist and can be used as an easy-to-modify framework that saves precious development time. They are built upon an open-source foundation and are fully configurable, so users need to be concerned only about adapting them to meet their specific requirements. Now that there is a body of existing use IoT cases, models can be easily ported and replicated in similar scenarios. Organizations that have these similar requirements can use off-the-shelf, pre-configured IoT solutions to start testing its potential and leveraging its benefits. The following article describes one such tool.
One of the most repeated messages in today’s business is that every company is a technology company.
While it is entirely clear to CEOs and top executives that digital transformation is necessary for every business to compete in today’s marketplace, for many organizations, the path to implementing new technologies is full of roadblocks and difficulties.
There is no doubt that all industries can benefit from adopting internet of things (IoT) technologies. Defining the business model of implementing IoT is the most crucial part of the journey.
Many organizations have been using some form of connected manufacturing or supply chain intelligence for many years. Technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) and GPS help to manage fleets, connect motion sensors and program sophisticated assembly lines, optimizing production and operations.
These technologies, however, fade in comparison to what internet-connected devices can offer, especially when paired with cloud, edge computing and machine learning.
