Platform & Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming how cities and organizations operate, sell, and sustain relationships with customers and stakeholders.  Dynamic change is all around.

While different cities and its citizenry have different reasons for deploying IoT solutions, the most common use cases that IOT Frames, PTC, Microsoft and our partners encounter are:

  • Device management and data integration

  • Rapid application deployment

  • Analytics applications

  • Device development

 

No matter the use case, many cities and organizations experience familiar challenges in rolling out this transformational capability. Why? IoT projects can be complex. Factors that can block progress include:

  • Security. Embedding and maintaining security across all links of the chain—at the device level, during transmission, and in the cloud—requires substantial expertise and investment.

  • Time. Developing software is just the beginning. Starting from scratch requires a significant amount of preparation. For example, organizations need the infrastructure to collect data and connect devices to the network and to each other. Then there’s the implementation of analytics so that people and machines can act on that data.

  • Compatibility. Many of the devices and applications that cities and organizations want to collect data from aren’t native “speakers” of TCP/IP. Translating those languages so devices can communicate over the Internet can require complex integration projects.

  • Scale. For cities and organizations that operate or sell globally, extending the power of IoT to every device in every region and geography can be overwhelming.

IOT Frames provides an experienced business team for critical design and a comprehensive solution.  Beginning slow and methodical, with the right platform, is a critical first step.  Value comes from proper planning and precise implementation. Start small, end Smart!
