What is IoT Cloud Computing?

Homepage Software services IoT Cloud Services IoT Cloud Computing – What is it?

IoT cloud computing simply means the use of online platforms to manage and analyze data collected from IoT devices. With more and more devices becoming connected to the internet, the need to have computing tools to collect and ‘read’ the data, or commands, is huge.

Each IoT device, no matter how simple it may seem, will generate large amounts of data in its lifetime, which can be difficult to process and analyze on the device itself.

Therefore, by using a cloud computing tool, the data can be stored and processed in a centralized location, allowing for more powerful analysis and the ability to access the data from anywhere with an internet connection.

How can Witekio help you with IoT Cloud Computing?

Not only does Witekio have over 20 years of IoT and embedded software experience with OEMs, but we have used our experience to develop our own IoT Connected Service Platform Builder – Kamea.

Using our software accelerators can save your team time, money and resources.

However, if you would like to use another IoT Platform available on the market, or build your own, we have the development skillset to make this happen 👇

Need help with your connected device?

From embedded connectivity up

If you’re starting from the very beginning – connecting the device itself, our teams are experts in navigating whatever application layer you choose.

From Web (HTTPS), to MQTTS, LoraWan or Iridium, our engineers can ensure your device’s embedded software is programmed to get the connectivity that your product demands.

Once connected, we can advise on the data processing policies you’ll need and build or connect to your chosen IoT platform from there.

Do I need to outsource my IoT cloud computing development work?

Outsourcing IoT work is a reliable way to keep costs under control and reduce project risks.

The most common development outsourcing reason we hear is that the business lacks internal skills and knows it will be less costly to outsource instead of building an internal team of IoT talent for the project. When you choose Witekio, you have access to over 180 engineers.

We have the skills to cover the entire embedded development scope and experts for every product industry.

Faster development: Take advantage of our existing infrastructure and development process, which can lead to faster development times. Eliminate the need to hire, train, and maintain a dedicated team.

Flexibility: Scale up or down your development resources as needed, meaning greater flexibility to respond to changing business needs.

Better security: IoT security is a critical aspect of any connected device, and our dedicated IoT security team can utilize the latest security technologies and best practices.

What type of device needs an IoT Platform?

Everything from household appliances, medical devices and even cars now have sensors connected to the internet.

A connected device doesn’t need to mean Iron man level tech. It can be as simple as your Fitbit (or fitness watch of your choice!).

On a consumer level connectivity can be used in devices as a way to meet consumer needs or give extra functionality (why use an app to start your connected coffee machine if it doesn’t remember how you take it?).

On a business level, IoT can be used to streamline efficiency by giving production data to management, and even safety info when looking at industrial equipment.

Industrial IoT: In manufacturing and industrial settings, IoT devices such as sensors and cameras monitor and control equipment, allowing for more efficient and cost-effective operations.

Agriculture: weather sensors and cameras monitor and track crop growth, soil conditions, and weather patterns, allowing farmers to optimize crop yields and reduce waste.

Transportation: GPS trackers and cameras monitor and optimize logistics and transportation operations, including tracking vehicles and cargo.

Healthcare: wearables and medical devices monitor patients’ health, allowing for remote monitoring and early detection of potential health issues.

Energy: smart meters and sensors monitor and optimize energy consumption in buildings and cities, allowing for more efficient use of resources.

Retail: sensors and cameras monitor and optimize retail operations, including inventory management, customer behavior and in-store tracking.

Smart Cities: air and water quality sensors, smart streetlights and cameras monitor and optimize city operations, including transportation, public safety, and environmental monitoring.
