What are IoT platforms?

The 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 networks. It provides an insight into the data used in the 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 the 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 an uninterrupted flow of communication between the devices.

The IoT platform helps in understanding the customers’ needs better and facilitate the creation of products that fulfill their requirements. It provides organizations with greater intelligence and visibility into operations, which enables better decision-making.

HCL’s IoT platform comprises data storage, device management, and data science workbench.
