IoT technology

What is the Internet of Things?

IoT technology is revolutionizing business.

The Internet of things (IoT) – the network of connected physical objects — is opening up new possibilities for innovation, revenue and customer engagement for businesses around the world. Growing evidence suggests that IoT technology can help companies build better products, create new business models and deliver services that delight customers with new and surprising capabilities.

For all of its promise, IoT technology also presents significant challenges for IT teams. Connecting a large number of IoT smart home products and other devices will inevitably create vast amounts of new real-time information that must be managed and integrated with other business systems. All these new devices represent new points of potential vulnerability and must be secured in order to protect against security breaches. Managing a centralized record system of IoT technology and authenticating users for access can be a highly complex endeavor. And meeting these challenges can easily overwhelm an IT team, pulling staff and resources away from higher-value activities.

To manage IoT technology more effectively, companies need a proven Internet of Things solution that can help to connect devices easily, manage the data they produce and simplify security and user authentication. That’s where Xively can help.
