What To Look For in an IoT Platform Provider

An IoT platform is central to your IoT solution. Enterprises use it to collect, combine, and visualize data from disparate devices. IoT platforms provide security, storage, and help enterprises develop end-user experiences.

"...There's no one-size-fits-all organization out there who can provide hardware, connectivity, application development, and data analysis. Our partners have IoT knowledge, innovative teams, and stability, allowing you peace of mind that you're getting the right value all the way through the IoT stack..."

How an IoT Proof of Concept Works

The Losant IoT proof of concept process is divided into four phases. You can start quickly and define your timeline in the definition phase. Download the guide to get the complete details about each phase.

The Often Overlooked Step: Pilot

The purpose of a PoC is to test out the technology and determine whether the solution your team has designed is capable of returning the data required for your organization. The purpose of a pilot is to test a solution with a small group of users in its actual environment. We encourage our clients to start with a small-scale rollout, or a pilot to eliminate any issues with hardware or operations in a limited group.

Recommended Next Steps

  • Identify a volume or acceptable quantity to get a meaningful amount of feedback.
  • Tap manufacturing partners to do a small scale run - this is an opportunity to identify issues before moving to full production of custom IoT hardware.
  • Integrate a feedback mechanism to get information from users in the field.
  • See the complete list in the guide.

IoT Solution Production - Make it Real

We recommend creating your enterprise’s complete production plan (including requirements, timing, budget, and device quantities) after executing a successful proof of concept and pilot. Before proceeding to production, consider the following:


Project Volume

Use the results of the IoT PoC and pilot to gauge how many of each item you will need and how the hardware functioned in its intended environment.


Data Visualization

An IoT platform that brings millions of data points together should also be able to help your team quickly visualize and use data in reports, dashboards, graphs, maps or in other ways.


IoT Security

Every partner should have industry-standard encryption methods. We also recommend setting up audits from a third-party security firm.
