The Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved into a hot-button for the C-suite, as they try to capitalize on it to redefine their business processes. However, with several vendors offering IoT solutions, organizations face significant challenges to seamlessly integrate disparate sensors, gateways, software platform, and applications. “Every device has a proprietary protocol and one of the major challenges with developing an IoT application that understands the seamless communication between machines,” says Prabhu Ramachandran, Director, WebNMS. With the core focus on addressing this issue, WebNMS offers open platform for multi-vendor unification that helps build solutions for diverse business problems, while connecting devices, networks and people to take enterprises to new heights.
With an industry presence of two decades, WebNMS specializes in providing cloud-based data integration and application development environment to rapidly build and implement IoT applications for managing millions of connected devices in real-time. The company’s WebNMS IoT Platform, an open software platform supports businesses to accelerate market entry into IoT deployments and also self-manage the connected devices. The company helps build a connected and intelligent future with a unified IoT platform, solving issues related to connectivity. “Various organizations all over the world are leveraging the power of connected devices to boost results and we are leveraging our expertise to make the results better,” adds Ramachandran. “Equipment vendors can take our platform and customize it accordingly and sell it as their own management software. It provides a good base to develop and run IoT applications by enabling seamless integration of multiple devices.”
WebNMS is built around core capabilities that make it one of the unique IoT software platform vendors focused on the enterprise market
According to Ramachandran, when building an IoT application there is a need for well-designed APIs owing to the fact that data pours in from multiple devices. WebNMS IoT Platform’s APIs rich approach beats this clutter and enables proactive and transparent monitoring and management. Critical data fetched by RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) are polled into the system allowing them to interact through standard protocols thus establishing proactive management and real-time tracking of remote assets.
The raw data from active and passive assets are translated into meaningful information for making informed decisions, automated actions and strategic analytics. For instance, there are APIs to track fuel efficiency, pilferage and leakage, APIs to track driver behavior, etc.The well-crafted platform with multiple APIS makes the platform most suited for building core enterprise applications.
One of WebNMS’s customers from Middle East, a provider of fire fighting solution was benefitted from the WebNMS IoT platform. WebNMS IoT solution helped to monitor the fire fighting equipment’s health round the clock, so that it was up and running without any glitch when required. “We identify real-time challenges and offer customized solutions based on the business requirement,” says Ramachandran.
For the days to come, Ramachandran identifies IoT to be the most innovative and utilized technology. The company is to continue redefining the IoT market through its IoT platform. “We are looking forward to build a connected and intelligent future,” he concludes.
