Internet of Things - Platforms and Free Trials

An IoT platform facilitates communication, data flow, device management, and the functionality of applications.  It links machines, devices, applications, and people to data and control centers.  It employs better, quicker search engines and data storage systems with the capacity and sophistication to handle large volumes.  Most of its elements are cloud-based and running on wireless connectivity, which may be established via third-party providers, application programming interfaces (APIs), cellular capabilities, or—most likely—a combination of these technologies.

IDC defines the IoT as a network of networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints (or "things") that
communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity. The ecosystem that supports the IoT
includes a complex mix of technologies not limited to modules/devices, connectivity, IoT platforms,
storage, servers, security, analytics software, and IT services. IDC expects that by 2020, spending on
the IoT will be $1.7 trillion. - IDC report sponsored by IBM
