The Internet of Things is enabling companies to not only develop and deliver innovative new products and services but also obtain greater visibility into their assets and operations and better understand their products and customers. Connected devices are changing the way businesses operate and the way consumers do things like shopping or managing their health. A connected device platform makes it easier for firms of all sizes to design, deploy, and manage Internet of Things connected devices. A proven connected device platform like Xively simplifies the technical complexities of IoT product deployment, letting you focus on delivering the most value to your customers instead of on managing difficult aspects of the IoT architecture.
The Internet of Things architecture is made up of sensors and actuators, of networks and message brokers, of data ingestion and management systems, of data integration connectors and databases, and more. A connected device platform, or IoT device platform, simplifies all of this—providing you with the tools and expertise you need to connect, secure, and manage your IoT devices.
Through out-of-the-box connectors, APIs, and SDKs, a connected device platform offers you simple and easy ways to integrate sensor or device data with other systems such as end user applications, big data analytics tools, or enterprise applications like Salesforce. Integration with CRM, ERP, and other backend systems is especially critical for Internet of Things retail industry and enterprise IoT solutions. And for healthcare IoT use cases, an IoT platform for medical devices enables powerful and valuable integrations of device data with EMR and EHR systems.
Other crucial capabilities of a connected device platform include user identity and access management to ensure the security of devices and of data, device management and support tools, and access to cloud infrastructure. In order to support an increasing number of connected devices and billions of data messages transmitted from those devices, you will need to leverage the scalability and flexibility provided by a cloud-based connected device platform.
Named the 2016 Global IoT Platform of the Year by the IoT Breakthrough Awards, Xively is a comprehensive IoT connected device platform built on the cloud and engineered for speed and superior scalability.
