Open Source and IoT: A Match Made for the Enterprise


Open source IoT platforms are starting to emerge as an attractive options for organizations embarking in the IoT journey. In an extremely nascent and crowded market like enterprise IoT, organizations are trying to rely more and more on open platforms and control their own destiny. Although we are still in the first generation of open source IoT technologies we can already see how this model can become dominant in the enterprise.

Some of the initial IoT platforms that have gained traction in the enterprise come from the traditional IT school that favors closed source, commercial distribution models. Cloud IoT platforms are also a great fit for enterprises in these early days given that they removed many of the complexities associated with an IoT infrastructure. However, as the enterprise requirements evolves, we think open source IoT platforms will become more and more relevant in the enterprise.
