The reason why the cloud is preferred for IoT applications is its ability to auto-scale if the number of connected devices can increase exponentially in a project. Also, if the number of devices spans a few hundred it is tough for the edge devices to handle the processing load. IoT Cloud platforms are more robust, auto-scalable and cost-effective in the long run.
Here are some IoT cloud platforms to choose from:
• Amazon Web Services IoT
• IBM Watson IoT Platform
• Microsoft Azure IoT Hub
• Google Cloud IoT
• Oracle Integrated Cloud for IoT
• SAP Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things
• Cisco Jasper Control Center
• PTC ThingWorx Industrial IoT Platform
• Salesforce IoT
Data Visualization will play an enormous role in assisting to make sense of this new era. IoT Data visualization tools and technologies are essential to analyse massive amounts of information and make data-driven decisions.
