In the world of IoT there’s no ‘one stop shop’ for every product and service you’ll require. Each part of your solution has unique characteristics and your solution is dependent on all them working together. Add the various standards and protocols around language and communication modes and the complexity becomes even greater. Fortunately there’s a solution but it requires the ability to organize and manage a cohesive set of ecosystem partners. Each partner needs to be a specialist in their area of expertise and have the ability to work with other complementary technology and service providers in a seamless manner.
In this webinar, IoT expert and industry veteran, Paul Pickering will review the key areas of an IoT deployment and touch on the associated standards, many of which are competing or emerging. Paul will also discuss the qualities you should consider in a potential ecosystem partner, the pros and cons of managing it yourself of using a lead partner to oversee the project and tips for getting started. Come prepared with your questions and Paul will address as many as possible during the session.
