The Internet of Things (IoT) platform enables software developers to build applications explicitly for IoT purposes. These platforms allow users to quickly build, test, deploy, and iterate on IoT-specific applications. Once the applications are developed, business organizations can connect these applications and continuously enhance their solutions. IoT platforms generally offer similar functionality to low- or no-code development platforms, like drag-and-drop elements and WYSIWYG editors for non-developers. But most do need some level of coding skills, and the more sophisticated platforms may need highly skilled developers. Moreover, apart from their standard functionality, some cloud platform as a service products may build IoT-enabled applications.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly and becoming more common and accessible as a business strategy among business organizations.IoT is now a major part of the digital transformation agendas for millions of companies across a wide range of industries, including retail, manufacturing, government, and infrastructure planning. IoT platforms enable business teams to connect IoT devices and configure IoT ecosystems through internal resources without recruiting third-party developers. Deployment of Industrial IoT devices or customer-facing IoT applications can put a smart ecosystem within reach and enable users to understand the benefits faster and at nominal costs.
