How a Smart Data Framework Can Better Shape Your IoT Business
The Internet of Things (IoT) will undoubtedly shape our future. In 2016, IoT will shake up virtually every market, forcing out antiquated business models and replacing them with automated and dynamic methodologies.
Today’s leaders are being challenged to reimagine their businesses. And while many executives may be wary of the unknown, the risks of adapting to IoT are much less intimidating than the possibility of being left behind.

Christian Renaud – Research Director, IoT at 451 Research – discusses the requirements for monitoring the Internet of Things.
Whether you’re an enterprise or service provider deploying IoT, you likely have concerns about how to achieve maximum scalability while managing down cost.
But in an IoT world, how do we even measure scale? And will your current collection platform scale with your enterprise when the number of IoT data points needed for analytics doubles in the next year? Or quadruples in the next three?
More importantly, can you add new data sources quickly, reliably and at scale as the types of devices, the methods of communication (XMPP, MQTT, HTTP, etc.) and the kinds of data structures grow?
Let’s say you’re monitoring a waterway. You want as close to real-time flow data as possible. When you look at your dashboard, you want to be able to display granular pressure, density and flow speed metrics.
You’re being flooded (literally) with data, so you need a platform that does more than just provide collection. You need a device and technology agnostic platform to provide a smart data framework – collect at scale, normalize and export in near real-time – to allow for insights that can help you maximize service to customers and your business potential.
To handle this explosive growth, organizations need a smart data framework that can collect, enrich and integrate IoT data at scale and with context. This insight will allow them to make strategic business decisions with confidence.
