Using a data platform for device interoperability and streamlined IoT application development
The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating value for enterprises across industries by driving process optimization and opening new business opportunities. One of the big challenges, however, is the need to quickly adopt new types of IoT data from various vendors’ equipment, sensors and third-party applications into existing core business applications. IoT data needs to flow across workflow, analytics, cloud and enterprise processes smoothly and quickly to generate the most value.
Organizations that have mastered both device data interoperability and existing application integration are succeeding at creating new and sustainable business opportunities. A multi-model, multi-workload data platform with support for structured, unstructured and semi-structured data and embedded device data interoperability can simplify and streamline the IoT application development life-cycle and ongoing maintenance.
