5 Best IoT Platforms to Watch for in 2019

By : |January 21, 2019 0

IoT (Internet of Things) plays a significant role in the digital transformation journey. Many organizations have already adopted IoT solution to drive their future growth. Gartner predicts that by 2020, 95% of all new products will use IoT technology, so we may expect some truly amazing and sometimes unusual implementations.

These implementations are backed by some amazing devices and platforms, and here are some of the best IoT Platforms…


Amazon IoT

Amazon Web Services IoT Core is a IoT platform that enables you to connect devices to AWS Services and other devices, secure data and interactions, process and act upon device data, and enable applications to interact with devices even when they are offline.


Key Features

• Using the AWS IoT Device SDK you can easily and quickly connect your hardware device or your mobile application to AWS IoT Core.

• The Device Gateway serves as the entry point for IoT devices connecting to AWS. The Device Gateway manages all active device connections and implements semantics for multiple protocols to ensure that devices are able to securely and efficiently communicate with AWS IoT Core.

• The Message Broker is a high throughput pub/sub message broker that securely transmits messages to and from all of your IoT devices and applications with low latency.

• T Core provides mutual authentication and encryption at all points of connection, so that data is never exchanged between devices and AWS IoT Core without a proven identity.

• The Registry establishes an identity for devices and tracks metadata such as the devices’ attributes and capabilities. The Registry assigns a unique identity to each device that is consistently formatted regardless of the type of device or how it connects.

• With AWS IoT Core, you can create a persistent, virtual version, or Device Shadow, of each device that includes the device’s latest state so that applications or other devices can read messages and interact with the device.

• The Rules Engine makes it possible to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices at global scale without having to manage any infrastructure.

Google Cloud IoT

Google Cloud IoT is a complete set of tools to connect, process, store, and analyze data both at the edge and in the cloud. The platform consists of scalable, fully-managed cloud services; an integrated software stack for edge/on-premises computing with machine learning capabilities for all your IoT needs.


Key Features

• Gain real-time business insights from globally dispersed devices, at the edge or in the cloud, with comprehensive services from Google Cloud IoT.

• Extend AI capabilities to gateways and edge devices with Cloud IoT Edge and Edge TPU, Google’s purpose-built hardware accelerator chip. With Google Cloud IoT platform, you can run IoT solutions with machine learning capabilities both locally and in the cloud.

• Discover how efficiently your devices operate, manage global assets, and carry out firmware updates on Google Cloud IoT platform.

• Make your business location-aware with the power of Google Maps. Visualize where assets are located in real time, where they’ve traveled, and how often they’ve moved.

Microsoft Azure IoT

Drive your digital transformation by gaining insights from your connected devices. Turn those insights into action with powerful applications built on the industry-leading IoT platform for IoT development. From manufacturing to transportation to retail, start fueling new revenue and business opportunities with IoT solutions designed for industry needs and management.


Key Features

• Build according to your needs with solutions for devices, at the edge, in the cloud and connected to your line-of-business system.

• Incorporate cloud intelligence and analytics with fully managed IoT services that provide deeper insights to drive faster decision-making.

• Protect your IoT business solutions and information securely and at scale—whether in the cloud or on-premises—with our industry-leading security technologies.

Oracle Internet of Things

Gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from Internet of Things (IoT) data, enabling your business to deliver innovative new services faster than your competitors, with less risk. Securely connect, analyze, and integrate real-time IoT data, at scale, between connected devices and your enterprise applications.


Key Features

• Standardize integration of devices with the enterprise

• Enable reliable, secure, and bi-directional communication between devices and the cloud

• Manage all your device endpoint identity, metadata, and lifecycle states

• Real-time analysis of incoming data streams with event aggregation, filtering, and correlation

• Enrich raw data streams with contextual information and generate composite streams

• Query and visualize massive amounts of data with integrated Oracle BI Cloud Service support and enable big data analysis

• Dynamically dispatch critical IoT data and events to applications and process flows

• API-based integration with Oracle and non-Oracle apps and IoT devices

• Send messages to devices from enterprise and mobile apps, independent of device connectivity


IBM Watson Internet of Things

IBM Watson has advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as the ability to quickly collect and connect devices. Organizations today are challenged in deploying IoT and getting the most out of their investment. In order to succeed, businesses need to focus on developing the right tools, services, applications and integrations with IoT.


Key Features

• Securely connect, collect and start processing IoT data quickly and easily with Watson IoT Platform.

• Take advantage of the analytics service for visualization and AI-driven analytics in the cloud.

• Enable shared and secured information across your business network with the blockchain service.
