To go beyond connectivity, the IoT Platform must abstract all components of the Internet of Things product or environment into a form that can be computed and interfaced with the app, model and analytics. I call this the software-defined product, or in the case of home automation, the software-defined home. In this episode of the IoT Business Show I discuss the IoT Platform with Jim Hunter and the importance of abstraction – from the metal to the cloud.

The “IoT Platform” is such an overloaded term that its meaning has been lost. Chipset manufacturers, sensor manufacturers, software vendors, consortia and system integrators all have their own definitions. But if you come at it from enough angles eventually a form takes shape and you realize it means what you want it to mean and what is important is not its definition but the context in which it’s used. In this episode of the IoT Business Show, Dr. Sean Lorenz and I go through the elusive IoT platform and why the business problem is always the place to start.

It’s a heck of a lot easier than it used to be but most IoT projects still involve custom system integration – the question now is how much. Although the definition of an IoT platform, or AEP, is not always clear, what is clear is that using a platform saves a lot of time and a lot of system integration work. There may be legitimate reasons to develop your own platform in house but by definition, this means you become a software company – big time. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Bryan Kester to get his take on what an IoT platform is, the technologies involved and a candid view on the strengths and weaknesses of IoT platforms today.

Because of the technology and data available, the biggest and most interesting challenge in designing an IoT product is to make it feel more like a service or experience, than a piece of hardware. Only after you understand the customer and what the opportunities really are can product design begin. In this episode of the IoT Business show, I speak with Gordon Hui to get an uber designer’s perspective on how to find that ideal product experience and the business that must be developed to support it.
