However, today, IoT has become a top business initiative.
Well, let’s understand, what is this IoT platforms? These are suites of components, responsible for the deployment of applications, that monitor, and control connected devices. Generally, they collect data from connected devices in order to manage them such that it makes sensible use of data in an aligned manner.
With the skyrocketing popularity, the recent market is flooded with IoT platforms. As we know, to build an IoT solution, a platform to host and support it is required. In this blog, we have listed the top Internet of Things platforms which is gaining popularity.
Azure IoT Suite:
Collection of services as such IoT Hub, Stream Analytics, Machine Learning, Notifications Hubs and Power BI, make an Azure IoT Suite. Powering plethora of devices and operating systems, it allows analysis and visualization of bigger data. Hence, it is also recognized for its feature like scalability from POC to the larger deployment stage.
Let's have a look, what do the enterprise-grade services offers:
- Data collection from devices
- Analyze data streams in-motion
- Store and query large data sets
- Visualize real-time as well as historical data
- back-office systems integration
- Manage your devices
With IBM Watson, you can secure all type of device quickly that are connected. It allows developers to have access to complete connectivity, information management, and real-time data analysis along with risk and security management.
