System Integrators are key to the Success of the Internet of Things

System integrators are key players in the push towards the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT companies such as AIS Technology must have extensive know-how into many systems affecting various departments. Hardware and software integration are key factors for any company operating in the Internet of Things space.

System Integrators and the Internet of Things

The age of the Internet of Things (IoT) is upon us. The Internet of Things (IoT) and the system integrator play a vital role in this transition into a new era. The Internet of Things looks to redefine what traditional systems integrators have done for years and decades. Automation solutions providers are sceptical of the revolutionary claims pushed by IoT advocates. Many believe that the Internet of Things can transform the industrial market and open up opportunities to system integrators and end users alike. There are many reasons why an established system integrator is key to an IoT project:

The IoT is complex. System integrators specialise in complex.

An IoT project consists of a number of inter-linked facets, such as sensors, gateways, servers, platforms and analytics. System integrators know that a successful IoT project depends on connecting systems from different vendors together. Compatibility between systems is vital, and system integrators such as AIS have the experience of making the complex simple. Linking sub-systems together via real-time hardware and software interfaces is key to an IoT project.

The IoT affects both IT and Operations. System integrators already work with both.

A true Internet of Things project will interface with information systems handled by numerous departments within a business. Real-time information sharing is a must to achieve connected business intelligence. Systems integrators are the link between Operations and IT within a business, delivering insight that breaks down any internal barriers.

Years of Experience and Knowhow.

System integrators with years of experience have in-house capabilities to bring an IoT project to fruition. An IoT solution is critical to any business, thus working with an established company will minimise risks and delays. System integrators also know that IoT security must be factored in at the design stage to ensure adherence to GDPR regulations and reduce threats.

AIS is well positioned to deliver Internet of Things solutions to organisations looking to transform their business. From smart cities, workplace analytics, Industrial IoT and smart healthcare, AIS have the software and hardware expertise to deliver an IoT application of any size or scope.
