The Internet of Things has been a hype for years since it began to be recommended by Kevin Ashton on 1999 and started popular through Auto-ID centre in MIT. It keeps developing through the years because people are finally noticing the benefit of Internet of Things.
The development of Internet of Things can we see in our home and even daily life. Developers who has developed Internet of Things devices are likely to build them in IoT Platform. These platforms are made to focus on IoT development.
Internet of Things Market is becoming a huge. Ever since smartphone user is increasing, IoT devices keeps growing. Smartphone which can be a basic device to control IoT device has been impacting on IoT development.
There are many reasons on why people are using IoT platform to build their product. Some of them are:
- Real Time Storage Data - Internet of Things technology needs integration with data storage (Cloud Storage), where data storage from sensor or data from other devices need a real time data storage. It is because IoT’s main focus is data streaming.
- IoT Protocol Connection - Protocol Internet of Things from every device might be different. This makes developer must do many changes and data conversions.
- Data Processing - Internet of Things is focused on faster data processing to make a real time data insight.
- Analytic's - Statistic processing and data management by various data connections and hardwares have to make a result about accurate data analytic.
Those are basic features that are available in many platform especially in Iot Platform. A real time data storage for example. It is needed to help developers build their IoT device and manage them every time.
As a developer, it is important to find the right features in IoT platform. The features will help developers build and manage IoT devices for better performance.
