What does Custom IoT Development mean?
IoT development is the process of creating IoT apps and solutions which can be automatically managed from a distant location using devices like sensors, actuators, etc. These apps and solutions also gather real-time data for better accuracy and to avoid manual errors. Custom IoT Development means developing tailored or customized IoT software solutions for clients as per their specific needs.
What IoT platforms do you use at Biz4Solutions?
At Biz4Solutions, we use the following platforms for IoT App Development projects
Azure IoT Hub: This platform provides a cloud-hosted backend solution for virtually connecting any device. It allows highly scalable and reliable communication between the IoT apps and IoT devices.
Google Cloud IoT: This platform comes with fully-managed cloud services. This platform provides a set of tools used for connecting, analyzing, storing, and processing data both in the edge and cloud.
How IoT will help my business needs?
IoT helps businesses in multiple ways. Some of the benefits of IoT are:
Automation: IoT increases business efficiency by automating many operations. It can significantly reduce human interactions and subsequently increase business profit. Automation helps achieve more control and higher productivity.
Machine to Machine Communication: IoT enables machines to communicate with one another, thus providing more quality and more transparency.
Customer Trends: IoT helps in monitoring customer trends and hence allows the apps to be more customer-centric
Will my data be safe when I access it remotely?
Yes. All the data will be saved in a secure database. We deploy our databases on clouds like AWS or Google Cloud. These cloud services are very secure. Also, in some cases, we encrypt the database and it is difficult to decrypt it even if the server is hacked.
Is IoT costlier to conventional practices?
IoT requires hardware such as sensors, gateways, controllers etc, but that is a one-time cost. Once we have the correct infrastructure in place, IoT can reduce human interaction and increase efficiency. Hence, in the long run, IoT is actually cheaper than conventional solutions.
Does implementation of IoT solutions involve huge infrastructure cost?
No. The infrastructure cost depends on app features and requirements. Some infrastructure might cost more, but it is not a general rule. However, IoT infrastructure, in the long run, will prove to be cheaper and hence, worthier alternative to conventional solutions.
