Cloud

IoT devices, applications and sensors are connected to a network of servers known as the cloud, where the real-time data from these IoT solutions is processed. The cloud helps to aggregate data from IoT devices to draw insights from that data. The cloud also includes services for managing and securing IoT devices. The benefits of using the cloud for IoT applications include scalability, increased lifespan of battery-powered sensors and devices, ability to aggregate large amounts of data.

Data Storage

This is where the data from IoT devices, sensors and applications is stored, analysed, and processed. Applications for IoT data storage are device connection and management, perform analytics for real-time asset tracking, data security, highly scalable and flexible.

Company operating in this Application type:

Enterprise Apps

Enterprise Apps are a collection of computer programs and software that aim to improve an enterprise’s productivity and efficiency. These apps aim to automate and optimise business processes. Enterprise apps perform business functions such as processing, procurement, customer information management, accounting and more.
