Tap the potential of the Internet of Things with the development and operating expertise of grandcentrix

There is no doubt that the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a megatrend.

Cisco predicts that around 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020.

Gartner describes a global sales growth potential of 270 billion dollars in the same timeframe for the Internet of Everything.

In 2020, analysts expect 6.1 billion smartphone users, nearly four-and-a-half times as many as in 2016.

Apart from these major figures, product manufacturers and service providers are facing enormous challenges:

  • Proprietary technologies encountering web standards.
  • Embedded development vs. highly scalable service platforms.
  • Maximum security requirements must be in line with permanent networking via public networks.

Digital innovation requires interdisciplinary product teams.

Challenge critical to success in developing Internet of Things solutions

In addition to the wide-reaching business effects of digital innovation, the Internet of Things presents companies from all industries with technological challenges:

  • Applied concept development and user experience design have to take complex technical parameters into consideration during the creation phase.
  • IT systems developed over time that were never designed for IoT applications have to be seamlessly integrated and should be virtually infinitely scalable.
  • Highly specialized electronic components have to communicate with standard interfaces designed for the web but not for resource-friendly transport.
  • Embedded firmware development meets carrier-grade platform architectures – paradigms that couldn’t be any more different.
  • The need for security for communication taking place over public networks is facing products that were traditionally operated in physical isolation.
  • Fast-paced changes and short periods between releases are a stark contrast to decades-long product life cycles.
  • Agile development methods are in competition with established production processes.

Specialized in large-scale Internet of Things and Smart Products solutions, grandcentrix addresses these challenges.
