IBM named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Industrial IoT Software Platforms, Q3 2018

Cut through common IoT device management barriers

IT teams drawn to the potential of IoT solutions find a fragmented IoT environment with few shared standards for operating systems, protocols or platforms. This creates a challenge of navigating many vendors for devices, gateways, networks and more. It also can drive up costs.

IBM IoT device management services provide large companies a managed solution for IoT deployments — from strategy to proof of concept to deployment and ongoing management. IBM can advise and support you through every stage of an IoT implementation.

These services are built on a single platform. This makes it easier to scale from proof of concept to full rollout. It creates better visibility into the health of your IoT devices, and it improves your ability to prove real business value to the C-suite.

Less than 5% of IoT engagements guarantee ROI. Momentum is a huge factor, driving solutions from pilots to business scale. That’s what this is about. CIOs are asking us to help them define, deploy and manage solutions — and make sense of the massive IoT value chain.
