SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 1, 2019 /CNW/ -- An enterprise deploying an internet of things (IoT) solution has to address many challenges from both the operational and IT perspectives. These barriers are amplified by the risks associated with an IoT environment. Decisions of "build vs. buy" and the high level of fragmentation in the industry are core considerations that cannot be ignored.
"Upward and downward integration capabilities, the flexibility of the IoT technology, and the strength of the partner's ecosystem should be critical criteria to evaluate in the vendor selection process. Making these decisions early can help an enterprise generate a positive return on investment (ROI) at a faster pace," said Dilip Sarangan, IoT Research Director, Frost & Sullivan. "The AT&T Asset Management – Operations Center (AMOC) is a key solution that provides a single, end-to-end, IoT-driven approach for asset management. It simplifies IoT implementations, offers visibility of mobile assets on a single dashboard and can help improve operational efficiencies."
Frost & Sullivan's new thought leadership paper, Reinventing the Supply Chain with IoT Asset Management, prepared in collaboration with AT&T, is based on the Frost Radar for IoT Platforms, generated in 2018, to recognize the solutions that all end users must consider when developing an IoT strategy. It outlines the challenges faced by enterprises as they embark on their digital journey and select an IoT platform to help them evolve and grow. It also provides a detailed scenario of how companies can add capabilities when they look for a strategic ally that will enable them to manage their products through the complete value chain that includes suppliers, dealers and resellers, and end customers.
