What IoT means for businesses in a cloud-driven world

When combined with cloud computing services, such as AWS and Azure, the Internet of Things (IoT) provides organisations with more opportunities to leverage data pulled from assets in the field. For some, this means using asset data to drive and improve internal business operations, for others, asset data is the key to unlocking new revenue streams from innovative business applications. To discuss this potential, Trinity IoT will be hosting an exclusive cloud-focused IoT Webinar on Thursday, 8 September at 14:00. The panel will also provide the audience with an overview of Trinity’s Connect platform, which enables its customers to rapidly deploy IoT business applications in the cloud.

Today’s business environment has been disrupted in many ways. From the customer experience to how companies generate business insights – the way we think about the potential of data has shifted dramatically. This is particularly true for businesses with geographically dispersed assets. Organisations need sight of whether these devices are operating as they should as well as the data collected to help shape their decision-making processes.

“We now know that by leveraging the data-generating insights of IoT devices at the edge of computing with the high performance computing capabilities of the cloud, organisations can significantly improve their time to market, ROI, and the quality of their data for more bespoke solution development,” says Ross Hickey, Trinity IoT Founder and CEO.

The recent launch of AWS (Amazon Web Services) in Cape Town, means the pressure is on to embrace digital transformation and unlock the potential that IoT and the cloud can provide. Adding further impetus to these changes is how to optimise data analysis and management across the IoT real estate. However, in order to truly reap the potential of Cloud-IoT, businesses must find ways of marrying their IoT infrastructure with cloud computing. This is no small task, requiring businesses to navigate several obstacles that can make or break their deployments.

“Some of the practical use cases of this in a COVID-19 world include the use of proximity devices that can sense how close employees are to one another thereby ensuring social distancing. Other IoT devices can be used to monitor vaccine refrigeration temperatures while they are in transit. IoT is only going to get more pervasive as the need for data at the edge of computing grows. Companies want to extract as much real-time insights as possible when it comes to their data for any number of reasons. By embracing Cloud-IoT, they can usher in a new era of effective decision-making,” says Wayne Bedser, Sales Director at Trinity IoT.
