Internet of Things or IoT is an interrelated system of people, computing devices and digital machines which are provided unique identifiers to transfer data across networks.
IoT is used in asset management, supply chain and inventory management, data center management, fleet management, surveillance and security monitoring, mobile device management, retail, healthcare, and building management. Some of the salient features of IoT include:
Open and Independent
The Internet of things is considered to be open and independent. IoT helps its users to connect to various platforms. When you can connect to various platforms with unique identifiers, why get stuck with specific architecture, set of enterprise applications, development configurations, sensors, protocols or controllers. companies should make sure that their platforms are free from the problem of vendor lock-in.
To understand the real value of the internet of things, you require an elastic distributed architecture that shrinks dynamically. Your platforms should have the intelligence to run in thin edge devices. They should also be able to run advanced analytics and key responses. In addition to all this, they should be able to modify and manage models, edge apps and analytics.
The platform should have high recognition among top analysts and should have a lot of satisfied customers. These make them trustworthy and give confirmation that the platform has achieved real success.
It is important to have a platform, which will be able to develop an app from pre-packed solutions for private instances and multi-tenants. By this, platforms will be able to offer internet of things to their customers without any interruptions.
Modular and Future-Proof
IoT platforms should be able to connect to any sensor, network, machine or device over any network. They should offer development choices that are flexible with the platform as a service (PaaS), edge, hybrid or software as a service (SaaS). The platforms should be low-code and should have solutions for API management, machine learning, portfolio management, enterprise integration, predictive analytics, and business process. Flexibility allows you to quickly update IoT and improve the scale and growth of platforms.
Make sure that your platform provider has partnerships across hardware providers, Sls, technology providers and VARs. These partners help us to customize and build various vertical requirements.
Design-Time Tooling and Free Methodology
Access to portfolio management tools like a resource library supports processes, work packages and practices which help you to plan, manage and model your information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) assets.
