The Internet of Things (or IoT as it’s commonly known) is an umbrella term used to describe interconnected technological devices and objects that connect to the Internet. They’re often interrelated, meaning that they can communicate and share data with each other. The world of IoT is vast and goes way beyond solely technical devices. It rather refers to the ways in which technology can interact with various objects and things, creating a vast network that diminishes the need for human intervention. IoT is everywhere around us in the modern world, and the examples are far-reaching. IoT instances in the real world include retail point-of-sale systems, home automation, security access control systems, self-driving cars, and agricultural mechanisms like self-watering networks.
In business settings, these solutions can streamline the connection and communication between different devices and objects, ensuring greater cohesion and communication throughout the organisation.
IoT solutions have many advantages when it comes to business operations, including the following:
- Enhanced productivity and less need for human labour
- More efficient and streamlined operational management
- Better client service and subsequent customer retention
- Huge cost savings
- Better decision-making and developmental solutions
- Reduced possibility of human error
- Cutting-edge solutions that provide a positive impression of the company to prospective stakeholders
An effective IoT system offered by a quality service provider ultimately streamlines every aspect of the business, building cohesion, efficiency, and unity. Since systems are scalable, they can also upgrade and adapt as needed.
Why Use Fourier’s IoT Platform?
Our platform is fully scalable and built with service-oriented architecture (SOA) in mind. SOAs make different software components reusable via various service interfaces. These different interfaces use “common communication standards” so that they are easily incorporated into newer systems without the need for a deep integration process. Fourier’s offering provides clients with total scalability and allows companies to consume external data too.
This flexibility enhances decision-making processes within organisations, enabling organisations to integrate various systems with ease. Our platform can also extend its functions to new protocols and devices over time, making it a long-lasting investment that yields positive results. Fourier’s IoT platform can seamlessly unlock value at any stage of your IT journey, making it a fantastic addition to any organisation.
