Begin your digital transformation with The Losant Guide. Learn the forward-thinking process we use with clients to achieve successful IoT projects for OEMs/industrial IoT, smart environments, industrial equipment monitoring, and telecommunications. Get helpful guidance for introducing an application enablement platform to your enterprise.
Read through our IoT use cases, learn more about how to execute an IoT proof of concept, and know when to engage partners from the IoT ecosystem.
The purpose of this guide is to help others overcome common obstacles such as how to get started, opportunities for connected solutions, and defining success for your enterprise. Complete the form to receive our five-step process for IoT success.
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..."
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.
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:
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.
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.
Every partner should have industry-standard encryption methods. We also recommend setting up audits from a third-party security firm.
A digital product requires new support options that may be different than your organization’s traditional processes.
