by Exosite, on July 19, 2016
Developing a successful IoT strategy entails a large number of pieces. Just as a puzzle is not complete until each of it’s unique pieces are in their proper places, an IoT solution is not finished until each element has been properly developed. As a leading consumer and industrial IoT platform provider, Exosite is continuously striving to assist companies connect the necessary pieces to create their perfect IoT picture. In this segment of our Solving the IoT Puzzle: Build or Buy? white paper dissection, we will be covering the necessary pieces of a successful IoT solution.
An IoT solution is a lot like a puzzle, although not the simple, 100-piece, distinct-picture type of puzzle. Successful connected-product deployments are more like complex, 3-D, 1,000-piece, blurry-picture kind of puzzles. Understanding all of the pieces in the IoT puzzle is a critical first step when considering developing an IoT solution. Having this information from the outset will help you make informed decisions about what pieces of the puzzle you can or want to own, and how you want all of the pieces to fit together to facilitate the seamless collection and use of your device data to meet your unique business needs.
There are big risks associated with developing a connected product, and it’s important to take this challenge head on and with your eyes wide open.
