Right now, the Internet of Things (IoT) platform market is filled with over 100 contenders vying to become the next SAP. The platform business is very profitable and long-lived (platforms aren’t changed that often), so the winner stands to reap plenty of rewards for becoming “the” IoT platform. It’s a compelling opportunity for those looking to develop a platform, but not if you’re trying to decide on one for your IoT application. Which do you choose?
Preventative maintenance (PM) is one of the main reasons that companies are turning to Internet of Things (IoT) technology. It can help optimize asset performance, decrease operating costs, and even extend the life of the physical asset. All these things add up to enormous savings and increased ROI.
