IoT Monetization: Review of IoT Technology and Enabling Platforms
IoT refers to the holistic interconnection of services, applications, business processes, people, and devices with a network or Internet in order to share information and perform certain tasks without any human intervention. The market for IoT ‘platforms’ is quite complex due to the various pieces required to come together to create, enable, deploy, and manage an IoT application. Global telecom operators have been investing in IoT services and solutions for business customers for years, initially as relatively unsophisticated ‘M2M’ offerings focused primarily on connectivity. More recently, operators have focused on seizing more of the value chain by offering more comprehensive platforms and services to support their enterprise customers. While these platforms begin with cellular data connectivity as the ‘table stakes’ requirement, the most advanced operators provide a host of features and services designed to help enterprises build use cases and ROI to support IoT investment, as well as IoT deployment and management services.
