by Exosite, on July 7, 2016
Developing an IoT ecosystem can be very complex and, as a leading industrial IoT platform provider, Exosite is here to help develop your business's connected solution.
In keeping true to our persistent desire to provide companies with our knowledge and expertise, Exosite is thrilled to release our latest white paper, Solving the IoT Puzzle: Build or Buy. Authored by our very own Melissa Cisewski, this white paper lays out the elements and best practices to consider when creating an IoT solution for your business.
Throughout the paper, Cisewski illuminates the pieces that make IoT ecosystems so daunting to many, including what it takes to build an IoT platform, the expertise necessary to do so, and how to integrate it with your business. Content is split into two main parts:
- Identifying the Pieces. The first section covers the different areas that need to be understood and achieved in order to create a successful IoT strategy, such as architecture considerations, back-end development, user experience design, and integrated features.
- Putting the Pieces Together. This section covers the most common approaches to building an IoT solution: building from scratch or buying pieces of it. Cisweski explains both benefits and challenges associated with either building approach.
Understanding how each element and approach works within an IoT ecosystem will help you make informed plans to progress into your IoT generation of business. Being able to capitalize on the pieces that you already have, then customizing and integrating other necessary pieces will make the difference between months and years of development for your products.
