Internet of Things
Exploiting the interconnection of computing devices in everyday objects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is likely far bigger than anyone realizes and companies that take advantage of this technology are likely to gain ground on their competitors. The real value of this interconnectivity is when the data is gathered and how that data is leveraged. There are literally many thousands of examples of usage in traffic patterns, health care, agriculture, and many, many more.
Trackwiz, one of our pioneer products is an IoT based application that tracks and monitors temperature, humidity, and air pressure in pharmaceutical storage units. It has incorporated an electric imp IoT kit for capturing sensors data, is interfaced with SCP to track, analyze, and monitor the parameters. Our team has also successfully integrated Alexa with Salesforce for a service center support application that acts like a personal guide for users’ vehicle repairing needs, informs them about parts that need adjustment or are damaged, provides information encompassing accessible merchants nearby, and other elements after looking up the type of vehicle. It also equips them with information about pending items, work orders, and much more.
In addition to creating several IoT-based applications internally, we have built several cost-effective, end-to-end, centralized cloud-based IoT solutions for organizations across domains.
Configuring and integrating IoT services for business use cases
Developing interactive analysis dashboards from multiple data points
Building mobile apps for API integration
From the Extentia Blog:
The future of the IoT appears resoundingly bright. While in the early years, technological innovation and development struggled to keep pace with its own lofty ambitions, it has finally caught up. We are now able to see what was once a mere theoretical idea come to fruition.
The IoT can be applied to areas like transportation networks – ‘smart cities’ that can reduce waste and improve energy efficiency to help us understand and improve how we work and live. The question that arises here is that if the IoT affects business and its models, how are companies supposed to prepare and respond?
The convergence of automotive and tech will create a new ecosystem. At the same time, the purchaser calls for cost reduction, flexible capacities, and a few other challenges with respect to hardware and software. However, to overcome these challenges – integration of embedded software, cybersecurity, Big Data, analytics, and the IoT promises great surplus value for manufacturers and customers alike.
