IOT PLATFORMS:The central backbone for the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

IoT platforms are the central piece in the Internet of Things architecture that connect the real and the virtual worlds and enable communication between objects.McKinsey2 estimates that “40 percent of the total value that can be unlocked with the Internet of Things requires different IoT systems to work together”. In its most simple form, an IoT platform is just about enabling connectivity between objects. In a more sophisticated form, the platform consists of a variety of important building blocks: Connectivity & normalization, device management, database, processing & action management, analytics,visualization, additional tools, and external interfaces.
