Google has taken the next step in making IoT a full-fledged reality in the business world by launching its dedicated Google Cloud IoT Core platform, IoT devices & data management portal for business. Google’s aim in creating this service is to provide businesses a better grip on the management of their IoT devices/data as well as to promote the commercialization of IoT technology. With this innovative IoT management service by Google, several types of businesses (specifically freight forwarding and transportation service) will enjoy huge benefits such as seamless, cost effective, and faster follow through.
“Google Cloud IoT Core will not only expand the probabilities in IoT, it will also help in the rapid adoption and betterment of the overall IoT infrastructure we currently work with,” says Clovis Lacerda, Founder of Parlacom Brazil, a South American IoT/M2M solutions provider. As each day progresses, demand for cloud-based IoT management portal has been on the rise. Particularly for such behemoth IT companies like Microsoft, AWS (Amazon Web Services), and Apple, premium cloud b2b consumers (who are adopting IoT) continuously demanding a robust and secure IoT management portal to manage the data and the IoT devices properly.
As a matter of fact, Google’s decision to make this IoT management portal a generic service to all of their cloud-based b2b consumers will have a strong impact on the industry. First, it will maximize the competitiveness in the fast-growing IoT industry. Second, the generalization of IoT management portal as-a-service will help in the improvisation of IoT evolution.
Numerous companies around the globe are dealing with tons and tons of data each day coming right from their deployed devices throughout various locations. Additionally, these devices are varied in range as well such as from a vehicle to a small sensor fitted in some machine. Collecting, evaluating, and proper deciphering of inbound data (often known as “Big Data” in technological terms) is a very crucial part for these companies.
IoT management services provided by Google in the form of its Google Cloud IoT Core (or other IoT firms for that matter) helps process and seamlessly manage this “Big Data” and the connected devices sending all of that information back to the central headquarters. Incorrect or even minor delay in proper response may have serious consequences, especially if the services is related to transportation or security.
But things will not only stop at Google’s offering, IoT companies around the globe also need to speed up their innovative operations to facilitate business with well-coded IoT apps. One thing is for sure with all of these developments, IoT is here to stay and surely grow on to become a major IT industry in just a few years. If you are an IoT service provider yourself, make sure you immerse in the game right away to reap rewards later on.
