IoT Pilot webinar: How to get the most from the independent IoT platform finder

If you’re in the process of adopting Internet of Things (IoT) applications, you’ll know how vital it is to choose the right platform. Finding the right one to meet your business needs sounds like finding a needle in a haystack, we understand that. There are platforms for Connectivity, for Device Management, Application Enablement and Data Management. To complicate matters the number of platforms on the market is growing every month, with more than 400 platforms now on offer.

Which is why IoT Pilot (www.iotglobalnetwork.com/iotpilot) has been launched by Beecham Research and IoT Global Network. It is the IoT Platform Finder for anyone adopting IoT connections for their business. This tool helps you identify which of the many IoT platforms available best suits your unique business requirements. It offers suggestions based on analysis by Beecham Research Ltd and can be a vital part of your organisation’s detailed assessment of all IoT platform options.

It is also why the IMC (IoT M2M Council at www.iotm2mcouncil.org) has created an RFP template for finding out more about the IoT platforms on your shortlist

What you will learn from the IoT Pilot Webinar:

  • What Internet of Things Platforms are and how they benefit you
  • How IoT services are assembled in integrated layers
  • The growing range of IoT Platforms now on the market
  • The key indicators used by IoT Pilot to independently evaluate the performance of IoT Platforms
  • How the IoT Pilot tool and heatmaps are designed to identify the IoT platforms that best suit your business needs
  • How the RFP template for IoT platforms available from the IMC is structured
  • How the RFP template can assist you in asking the platform vendors on your shortlist the right questions for your needs.
