What are IoT Platforms?

Internet of Things (IoT) strives to connect devices remotely for seamless functioning and ease of operations. An IoT platform bridges the gap between device sensors and data network. It provides an insight into the data used in backend application. An IoT platform is a set of components that allows developers to spread out the applications, remotely collect data, secure connectivity, and execute sensor management.

An IoT platform manages connectivity of the devices and allows developers to build new mobile software applications. It facilitates the collection of data from devices and enables business transformation. It connects different components, ensuring uninterrupted flow of communication between the devices.

IoT will help understand the needs of customers better and facilitate creation of products that satisfy their needs. It will provide organizations with greater intelligence and visibility into operations, which will enable better decision-making.

HCL’s IoT platform comprises Data storage, Device management, and Data Science workbench.
