The design and development of an IoT platform is often the focus for many digitalization projects — in order to manage the varied device landscape within the company or to optimise in-house production, to simplify the servicing and maintenance of the internal product range and to increase customer benefits.

The crucial added value of an IoT platform mainly comes from the data of the networked devices, which is captured, analysed and evaluated. There are a number of complex criteria that are relevant to choosing and successfully integrating a suitable IoT solution:

  • Manage, update and monitor distributed devices
  • Provide uniform data standards for transmitting a variety of information
  • Receive and evaluate data in real-time and integrate additional systems
  • Derive reliable predictions from your data base
  • Integrate processes and workflows and implement role-based user interfaces or dashboards
  • Guarantee maximum security when operating on an internal platform
  • Device and life cycle management throughout the entire life cycle
  • Correct implementation and evaluation of IoT protocols
  • Implement data streams and steam analytics services correctly
  • Establish predictive analytics and big data processing to gain economic benefits
  • Choose the appropriate cloud providers and use the right cloud solution

Our understanding of a platform – unlocking the potential of IoT

In order to unlock the potential of the IoT, different devices must be connected, managed and used profitably. This requires an overarching platform strategy, which is then operationalized in the form of a technological IoT platform:

  • Use case development: By using innovation methods we support you in the development of suitable IoT scenarios. A feasibility and profitability analysis forms the basis for an emerging business model
  • Agile development: The combination of our technological know-how and the application of agile development methods make your IoT project a success
  • IoT Platform & Devices: A comprehensive concept of the planned solution will help you with the upcoming Make-or-Buy decision. Then we support you in the operation of the platform and the associated device management.
  • Data Analytics: Deep understanding of the data enables application scenarios such as predictive analytics or predictive maintenance. A visualization of the results and corresponding user experience convey the information gained.
