IoT Challenges Solved by Connected Product Management

Xively is a connected product management platform that is available as a platform-as-a-service. As such, Xively manages the scalability and availability of the service freeing you to focus on the application of IoT end-points that are specific to your business requirements. Xively’s connected product management solution addresses the following challenges for your business:

  • New and complex domain expertise — IoT requires specialized domain knowledge and skill sets to be implemented and exploited correctly. For example, for an IoT home platform, smart home system knowledge and expertise is required.
  • New customer expectations — Many traditional business models do not require businesses to interact directly with end-users. For a connected IoT platform, end-users seek to communicate directly with businesses to resolve issues related to IoT applications.
  • Understanding IoT data — IoT systems generate large amounts of data due to the high volume devices deployed. Businesses need to carefully manage that data in order to structure it for insight and actionable intelligence.
