IoT Platforms: A foundation for success

IoT Platforms: A foundation for success

IoT platforms help to network, manage, and analyze internet-enabled devices; provide security mechanisms; and offer APIs and development environments that can be used both to develop IoT applications and to integrate them into the world of enterprise. As such, they are an important component of almost all new business models that link the physical with the virtual world.

Smart Buildings: The Future with IoT

Smart Buildings: The Future with IoT

Until recently, even the tallest office towers and hotel complexes basically just consisted of an assortment of building blocks. But today architects need to manage complexity as demand for intelligent buildings that require new integrated planning methods and smart computer solutions instead of old-fashioned drawing boards grows. Many of them are already taking IoT to a more macro scale with the “Building Internet of Things”.

IoT Sensors: The Eyes and Ears of Internet of Things

IoT Sensors: The Eyes and Ears of Internet of Things

Sensors typically transform physical values into electric signals. As they get smarter, the latest generation of sensors are helping to make machines cheaper, safer and more powerful than ever, and they allow them to hook up directly to the Cloud. In the process, they will transform and revolutionize entire industries and business models – and that’s just for starters!
