Between 2010 and 2019 the Internet of Things (IoT) was gradually being adopted by mainstream enterprises, but the team from Ioterra maintains it was only in 2020 that IoT adoption gained massive traction because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Covid pushed IoT adoption, not just in healthcare but also in remote working and remote machine operations. Unfortunately, the IoT market including services and solutions is still so fragmented that it is difficult for IoT buyers to quickly identify and deploy the IoT solutions for their use case.
Having experienced these practical difficulties in the IoT space since 2015, a team led by Daniel Price, Abhinav Dubey, and Danny deLaveaga came together to resolve such business gaps or complexities in the ever-evolving IoT ecosystem.
They launched a verified IoT network called IOTERRA for buyers to quickly partner with highly reliable IoT vendors from across the globe, and are proud to share how the Ioterra ecosystem enabled our Covid-19 fighters. It’s time, they say, to address the problem with profound IoT solutions from all across the globe.
Now, the world’s best IoT companies are working towards leveraging each other’s robust capabilities in building authentic IoT solutions to combat the prevailing crisis. Here they share the latest IoT developments and initiatives powered through the Ioterra ecosystem.
