What is the Internet of Things?



IoT systems simplify management of connected devices.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) transforms the way we do business, companies wanting to prosper from this new technology will need sophisticated IoT systems and IoT software to manage it well.

The IOT promises to deliver extraordinary value by giving everyday products a voice to communicate information to people, environments and other products. From IoT smart home devices that can be monitored and controlled remotely to wearable technology providing data about a user’s behavior, Internet of Things solutions can help to create revenue streams and increase innovation and customer satisfaction.

But the amount of data provided by connected devices can easily overwhelm traditional database tools, and the amount of time required to manage it can distract IT teams from higher-value activities. New points of connection also mean new security vulnerabilities, and managing access and authentication only adds additional complexity to a rapidly changing security landscape.

The good news: these challenges can be easily addressed with innovative IoT systems that simplify management of connected devices, integrate new data streams with existing information sources, and help organizations more effectively manage new product development and customer service.
