Internet of Things or IoT is the talk of the industry. It connects all the devices to the internet and in turn connects them to each other. Once these devices are connected to each other, they collect and share data. IoT will be the big change that will make every small or big device that we see around us smarter. According to a report 8.4 billion IoT devices were connected to each other in 2017. By 2020, the number is most likely to increase to 20 billion IoT devices.
These devices need IoT platforms which act as the middleman and help in bridging the gap between the data network and device sensors. It is these IoT platforms that combine the real and the virtual world between objects, systems and people. Additionally, these platforms are cloud-based which are designed to provide developers with ready-to-use features for apps for connected devices.
In simple words, an IoT platform is a diverse service that will help in converting physical objects online. There are a lot of big IoT platforms designed by Amazon, Google, IBM and much more. However, there are certain Indian IoT start-ups that are going to be major game changes in the upcoming years. Here are the top 5 upcoming Indian companies offering the best platforms for running IoT applications.
