Is Thingsup the Best IoT Platform?

Let's understand the IoT Platforms

Today, we see lots of IoT platforms in market. Many companies claim that they have built an IoT platform, which they claim to be the best amongst others. But let’s see why we don’t think this is true.

  1. A Platform built for a particular area such as equipment monitoring is not actually a platform, it’s a solution which can onboard multiple customers. It’s an IoT Product/Solution.
  2. A Platform which is not open to public for usage, as it is without any customisation, is again not an IoT Platform. If you are building a software product with pre-built modules(so called platform), it’s a development service. Most of the IoT solutions provider companies fall in this category.
  3. A Platform which forces customers to buy a particular hardware to build a solution, is again not a True Platform. Platform should be open to all possible integrations from hardware to software.
Considering above conditions, you can figure out that there are only few companies which have built a true IoT Platform. Best IoT Platform should be capable of connecting almost all hardware devices, along with various software services and frameworks, leading to building a great solution for customers.

What is Thingsup?

Thingsup is an IoT Platform built by iobot Technologies. After building 40+ IoT Solutions in just last three years, we realised that most of the IoT solutions have 90% of repetitive components and only 10% is customised as per the required solution. Considering this ratio, we started working on making a single framework, which can help organisations just like us to build IoT solutions quicker and with best quality.
