Internet of Things (IoT) covers the growing number of small devices embedded in physical things. that collect and exchange data over the Internet. These devices enable us to collect, monitor, analyze and act on increased insight into e.g. an urban environment, a factory production line, indoor climate in a building or even the health and well-being of citizens.
IDC (International Data Corporation) estimates there will be 20.4 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet by the end of 2020 and more than 41.6 billions of units by 2025.
With IoT, your company can gain completely new insights into your products, services and processes that have so far been impossible. You can use these new insights to transform all or part of your business - renew your products, optimize your processes, engage your customers or make your employees even more productive and satisfied.
The road to your upcoming IoT platform needs to be planned and designed so that it not only stays in the pilot stage, but is further developed. Too many IoT pilot projects are stranded at the trial stage in closed silos and proprietary systems. ProActive recommends utilizing a scalable standard platform that embraces data across systems while meeting the highest standards of security and secure data collection.
ProActive's IoT solutions are based on Microsoft's standard Azure IoT platform. Azure IoT offers a wide range of plug-and-play IoT services and secure connection of IoT devices. With Azure IoT, it is no longer just the largest companies that can join the IoT wave. Azure IoT is available to all businesses and organizations in terms of both technology and economics. In ProActive, we can start your journey with a preconfigured IoT framework tailored to your industry that ties Microsoft standard technologies together so we can test your business case fast.
The expected and strong growth in the deployment of IoT devices, combined with the increased security threat, places great demands on IT security.
