Internet of Things Transforming Lives and Businesses
The Internet of Things, or Machine to Machine Connectivity is transforming the world as we know it. IoT technologies make it possible to connect assets of all kinds – everything from industrial machinery to heart monitors, streetlights to cars. These assets are equipped with sensors that monitor their environment, and with a network connection so they can communicate. Businesses can use IoT to gather data about what’s happening in their operations in real time, and so support decision making.
Whatever sector you’re in, your business can benefit – in all kinds of ways. Connecting your products or the assets around your operations can help you generate new revenue streams, build closer relationships with your customers, cut costs, improve safety, reduce downtime, improve sustainability, and make better decisions every minute of every day.
By working with DRC, you will be in the safest hands as we take the time to work with you to design and implement the right solution to transform your business. We enjoy a challenge, and love taking a solution from conception to delivery.
The DRC Difference – Making it Happen
Connected Devices Sense Their Environment
It all starts with the assets – the things that you want to monitor and control. Whether they’re small or large, mobile or fixed, in their thousands or a one-off, there’s an IoT solution that’s a perfect fit. Equipping these assets with connected sensors gives you the power to monitor their behaviour or environment and communicate any changes required.
Network Connectivity Carries the Data
The network is at the heart of IoT. Without connectivity you won’t be able to get the information you need. Often, this connectivity takes the form of a SIM card, meaning the IoT asset communicates via high-speed, reliable, cellular networks.
Data is Held Securely in the Cloud
IoT devices gather vast amounts of data – so you need to be sure you have a secure place to store it all, and not have to worry about capacity. Cloud storage allows you to scale up and down as required and be securely accessible from any location.
A Management Platform Aggregates Data and Controls Devices
The data generated by your IoT devices is communicated securely to a central platform, hosted securely in the cloud, which gathers and processes the data and allows you to manage and monitor your entire IoT estate.
Applications use IoT Data in Business Processes
The true magic of IoT data comes from being able to analyse the information you collect and respond automatically and in real time. As a result your IoT management platform needs to be able to integrate with other business systems, such as your CRM or work scheduling tools.
Professional Services Keep Everything Running Smoothly
IoT solutions can quickly become highly complex, given the number of moving parts. You’ll need to plan each stage of your deployment carefully and identify where investments are prioritised. That’s where your choice of provider – and their professional services capability – is critical. You’ll want an experienced partner, that operates where you do business, understands your industry and knows IoT.
