In the recent times, the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) has been rapidly growing. Global industrial players have been leveraging IoT technology to achieve business transformation, economic growth and competitiveness.

Connected buildings, connected lighting, connected home, connected cars, connected industry: The list is never-ending. Research says, market for Internet of Things devices will reach nearly 20 billion connected devices by 2020.

Some of the key use cases in IoT include remote device monitoring and control, predictive maintenance, product personalization, Manufacturing and process automation. SoftDEL services are aligned to these key use cases.

The Challenge

Some of the typical challenges in IoT adoption are – 

  • Business potential identification and roadmap planning
  • Predictability of “Return on Investment (RoI)” from IoT implementations
  • Selecting a right vendor and platform – Too many options available
  • Full program management across IoT lifecycle
  • Institutionalization of Business process generated while deploying IoT
  • Managing a huge amount of data – Data Consistency, Security
  • Ubiquitous connectivity – Lack of consistent standards & Variety of wired and wireless connectivity standards
  • Provide legacy device connectivity for protocols like BACnet, Modbus, ZigBee, etc.
