IoT projects #1 challenge remains connectivity, protocols

PLAT.ONE, an enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) solution platform, has reported the results of its European IoT Industry Survey from the M2M Forum in Milan that investigated IT infrastructure, technology requirements, business challenges and state of deployment, the company said.

PLAT.ONE CEO Dr. John Bates said, “We are fascinated to see that connectivity and protocols came out as the top technical challenge. This comes up with customers when choosing an IoT platform. The concern is here is around future proofing and support to interoperate across the myriad of legacy, new and unknown machine protocols. Being able to ingest, combine and correlate data from any device that comes along is critical. This is not something that traditional integration vendors know how to do and requires a completely new approach for the IoT era.”

PLAT.ONE is an enterprise-grade IoT solutions platform that simplifies the process of creating, deploying and managing complex IoT solutions. PLAT.ONE shortens time-to-value for IoT applications and reduces the cost of their management.
