IoT connected devices are turning up everywhere. Every major communications carrier is offering its own IoT platform. And hundreds of technology companies are offering capabilities for IoT use case implementation. But the crux of the matter is not what options there are, but how to make it all work together. What’s needed is a common framework for creating true value, – a way to make everything work together – essentially an integrated data plane, connecting scalable compute and storage and big data analytics.
This blog highlights how to enable the initial deployment and subsequent growth needs for any enterprise starting to making an IoT investment. Organizations making this investment will see expected returns in several categories, including additional revenue, optimization of operations, significantly improved experiences and stronger customer loyalty.
As a company, we are seeing IoT projects in every industry and government sector. Both public and private companies are preparing project budgets and including IoT as a major item in their planning cycles. For example, here at Hortonworks, we are seeing:
The right IoT platform capabilities must be in place to support these demanding IoT implementation needs. So what does it take to implement a successful IoT platform? Let’s list the high level requirements for successful enterprise grade IoT platform:
The other must-haves are managing a vast array of connected devices and the ability to offer secure network connectivity working in tandem with such an ecosystem. Forward thinking organizations are turning to IoT to drive additional revenue, improve operational efficiencies, and increase customer satisfaction and loyalty. Hortonworks provides HDF and HDP, which offer key aspects for a successful IoT platform implementation.
The future of IoT is now, and Hortonworks is helping IoT development and delivery teams meeting their immediate business goals today.
