Device development-focused platforms
IoT platforms focused on embedded devices that communicate directly with each other. Driven by the advent of a new range of lightweight IoT devices that communicate directly with an IoT platform via LPWAN technology.
Device management-focused platforms
Platforms that support the critical management of various device fleets on a large scale. From a functional perspective, they focus on centrally managed software updates at the device level but also remote configuration and control of devices.
Rapid application deployment-focused platforms
Platforms that allow simple and fast device connectivity, data visualization via drag & drop dashboards and event processing. This use case often serves as an easy starting point for clients in their journey towards IoT and is therefore frequently applied in the context of rapid prototyping.
Platforms that enable the development of more complex IoT applications such as predictive maintenance. For this purpose, an IoT platform has to provide dedicated capabilities around data analytics, artificial intelligence, application integration, and application development.
