The Internet of Things:
Beyond Build vs Buy
From boosting efficiency to reducing costs and gaining a competitive edge, the IoT is widely seen as the future for manufactured products. While it is an enormous leap for manufacturers to go from producing traditional products to connecting those products to the internet, the truth is that you must answer the demand of the consumer. But the question very quickly becomes, “Does it make more business sense to build or buy an IoT platform when developing connected products?”
Join us Tuesday, June 20th at 11am PT / 2pm ET to find out and to better understand what is required of an IoT platform. Also get answers to some of the most common questions manufacturers must consider before deciding whether to build their own IoT platform:
Do we have a clear understanding of what building an IoT platform entails?
Can we build appropriate connectivity, security, responsiveness and reliability into every aspect of the IoT operation?
Do we have the in-house expertise in all the areas of technology that are involved?
Will we be able to keep pace with the technologies and users' expectations as they continue to evolve over time?
