3. Evolve with the market by innovating new services and novel business models

Innovate on the only completely open IoT platform and free your business from the constraints of any one technology stack. Because you’ll be using open standards, you’ll be able connect any “thing” today and tomorrow. That means you can bring your own hardware and tools and pick the components that best fit your business. You’re also free to run your solution wherever you need it—cloud, on-premises and/ or at the edge—and do analytics anywhere, for example, at the edge near data sources. Easily evolve and expand your IoT solution using a building block approach as your needs change over time. 

Get beyond IoT trials and make your IoT a platform for innovation. By choosing a platform built on 10+ years of experience and best practices, you’ll be using a solution that comes ready to go with device connectivity and management, application enablement and integration tools, as well as the leading streaming analytics engine.
