YOUR POTENTIAL IS OUR CHALLENGE
The Internet of Things is shaping the future of IT decisions, but how you combine IoT with data is key to maintaining a competitive advantage in today’s fast-paced environment. As we move into the post-mobile technology era, businesses are looking to deliver next generation capabilities with connected solutions, software and data analytics. Whether your organization is interested in improving efficiency or seeking out new sources of revenue, data reveal untold opportunities, while IoT brings these opportunities to life.
We commonly see two scenarios when a company tries to adopt IoT into their business workflow: If they have the capability and choose to build their own IoT software that is actually scalable, resilient and supportable, they suffer from a longer time to market with a six to twelve-month minimum effort. If that company buys an off-the-shelf solution instead, it is rarely customized to their needs and can pose a different set of obstacles all together.
WHATEVER IT TAKES FOR WHATEVER'S NEXT
The challenge with IoT is that it encompasses many fields of knowledge, requiring an overwhelming amount of talent, capacity and time. Cumberland Group’s IoT and Digital Platforms practice rises to this challenge with a full-service team dedicated to helping our clients design, build, deploy and support the three core tenants of an end-to-end IoT solution: hardware, connectivity and software.
- Ready to deploy hardware solutions
- Custom designed hardware based on individual customer needs
- Experience with wireless sensors, cameras, device gateways and more
- Expertise across common device communication protocols
- Reliable data ingestion from millions of devices
- The best open-source and cloud provided IoT tools made turn-key
- Reduced time to market by 6 to 12 months
- Immediately visualize, integrate and act on data at the edge, in the cloud or the datacenter
Starting an IoT project that connects devices in the physical world with open-source, or even custom software can seem daunting. In order to constantly validate the business case and technical feasibility, we break down the work into four important phases. By doing this we identify challenges ahead of time, avoid costly mistakes further into the process and drastically reduce risk to the overall implementation.
Dedicating time to understanding our customers’ needs allows us to develop a solid business case for implementing the best IoT solution.
When building custom hardware or software, we develop, test and iterate in order to ensure our solution is comprehensive and fully functional.
Testing the prototyped solution in a controlled environment can help catch any issues that may arise before putting the solution into full production.
When all previous stages are successful and the customer approves the final solution, we work with them to cross the finish line at full scale production.
