Five Essentials for Deploying IoT

When building an IoT organization, it’s critical that the system supports both legacy and new smart devices. Further, it should provide support for multiple connectivity options (i.e., wired, wireless, etc.). IoT solutions should also have centralized and remote device management to allow for dayto-day provisioning, device setup and maintenance.

• Devices

• Connectivity

• Account/device management and security

• Application programming

• Analytics and reporting

To support application connectivity, the system should offer consistent application programming interfaces across a wide range of devices, while affording easy scalability and connectivity to the data center. Once an IoT solution is in place, it needs to be capable of comprehending advanced analytics in order to process Big Data. Business intelligence, enterprise resource planning and other applications enrich data collected, which ultimately yields insights, as well as predict outcomes and actions.
