Choosing the Suitable IoT Solution for Your Business

Every Internet of Things device has its own use and uniqueness, but sometimes, it’s difficult for companies to pick the right, suitable one for their business. Whether your business is all about selling household appliances or delivering customers’ needs on time, a deep knowledge of choosing IoT devices and platforms that suit your business model is essential. In the market of the Internet of Things, it is important that one can learn quickly, make it work, and start to get business value as fast as possible. By doing these steps properly, businesses can achieve substantial business growth as well as dominate the market share. Let’s talk about how you can select the best IoT package for your business.

Get to Know Every Type of Device and Platforms

Businesses and developers have a bewildering array of IoT device and platform options to choose from, each may have very different capabilities. If your goal is to implement asset monitoring or operational intelligence capabilities from zero, it’s generally best to look for a platform that either provides end-to-end solutions, or is partnered with another platform that provides some of the services, like IoT cloud platform. This is why you should be installing devices based on your requirements and must be manageable, otherwise, the IoT technology won’t live up to your business’ task. 

Focus on Time-to-Value

Think about results in days or weeks instead of months and years. Good IoT solution providers will deliver the capability to digitize an asset in a few days or weeks with minimal effort, then connect the data to any application with equal speed. Keep in mind that you don’t have to choose just one platform to do a proof of concept (PoC) if you have to change platforms when you go into production. It is advisable that you better choose an end-to-end platform that can take you from PoC to deployment with ease.

Standardization and Connectivity

Between the IoT devices and platform, there are protocols used for data communication that define how well your platform can interact with IoT devices. Because your platform can only interact with devices that communicate with the same standards, a special protocol is needed. For example, using MQTT protocol which is used for M2M communication will be useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required.

Data Management and Analytics

From the device sensors, a lot of data that can be analyzed for prediction is continuously received. With additional data sources like weather and social data, IoT platform can provide better insights of data captured. In this instance, the whole process can be sped up using Cloud Migration which can also increase security level and save costs. The collection of insights will surely drive digital disruption of the physical world, your business processes, and real-time decision-making.
