Developing custom IoT solutions from the ground up can be a complex challenge, especially for industry newcomers.
Once a connectivity device is selected, developing proprietary hardware, software and security architecture, and then managing the certification process can take anywhere from 12 to 24 months.
That's a long time to wait for the rewards the IoT investment including cost savings, new income streams, efficient business processes and happy customers.
Here's the good news.
