#IoT Podcast 8: What to Look for in an IoT Platform Link
With literally hundreds of IoT platforms on the market, how do you know which ones to add to your short list? As a rule of thumb, an IoT platform should connect to Things, manage their identity + security, collect data, store, manage, analyze and visualize that data, integrate with enterprise systems and take action on insights. In this podcast, Rob Tiffany walks you through these minimum requirements to help you make an informed choice.
#IoT Podcast 7: Can the Web Save the Internet of Things? Link
Despite the great promise of IoT to improve business and society, many think it’s being held back due to complexity and the associated lack of required skills to make it a success.
