IoT Analytics, the leading provider of market insights for the Internet of Things, has announced the publication of a white paper that serves as a guide to streamline IoT solutions development. The paper helps companies steer through the challenging solution development process to accelerate their IoT endeavors. Sixteen specific learnings are cited from recent projects across the five major phases of IoT Solution Development

The paper breaks down IoT solutions into five distinct layers and 15 components in order to further simplify the complexity of end-to-end IoT solutions.

To assist companies in better understanding the offerings of IoT solution providers, IoT Analytics showcases a high-level comparison of eight major IoT solution providers, including Microsoft, Amazon, IBM, Intel, GE, Google, PTC and SAP.

The paper reveals that IoT projects are increasingly relying on existing out-of-the-box solutions and that 29 percent of companies look to IoT cloud platforms to lead their solution development projects.

Additionally, the paper discusses three areas that demand special attention when developing IoT solutions in detail: Security, Interoperability and Manageability.

“Our research shows just how challenging IoT Solution Development still is in 2016,” reveals IoT Analytics’ CEO, Knud Lasse Lueth. “We estimate approximately 3,000 new enterprise IoT projects will be launched in 2016. I recommend that these project teams read our guide to avoid making mistakes others have made and instead follow a structured solution development framework.”
