While Internet of Things (IoT) adoption is a strategic imperative, companies struggle with legacy infrastructure, connectivity, and implementation decisions. IoT providers can help companies advance IoT plans by using their expertise and portfolio of solutions. Instead of following a build-and-own approach, companies should opt for IoT-managed services to make adequate use of the rapid developments in IoT and advanced technologies that enhance solutions and outcomes. With new business models, innovations, and continuous development of products and services, IoT providers can help clients stay ahead of the curve and adopt IoT best practices.
The publisher defines IoT-managed services as the management of activities after deployment of customized, bundled, and off-the-shelf IoT solutions. Services include regular updates, changes, and delivery of insights to maximize benefits for clients that enhance their core products and services.
