Everything you need to develop IoT connected products

IoT technologies open up an entire new playing field for product development companies. With connected products, they drive innovation and help their customers offer even better services. AllThingsTalk Spaces and Partner+ enable you to focus on the conceptualisation of IoT products and services that innovate our lives. Spaces offers a software platform tailored to IoT development. It takes care of rapid prototyping, data visualisation, scalability and much more. Meanwhile, Partner+ provides the easiest way to roll out your connected hardware and gives you access to a community of like-minded innovators.

From scratch to a scalable IoT product in three steps

step-1

Be in the know about IoT

The Internet of Things is not a single technology. There's hardware, networks and their protocols, data visualisation, analytics, complex algorithms, and much more. Know what's at your disposal to build the best possible IoT product.

step-2

Rapid prototyping

The best way to make great products in such a complex environment is to just try it out. Quickly make prototypes of even the smallest idea. Take control over the process of product design by trying it over and over again with your customer, until you create the product you need.

step-3

Rinse and repeat

IoT offers many different technologies to build the perfect product. The immense catalogue to choose from can, however, distract you from what's important: creating something with great value for the user. You'll have to select the right components that allow for just that and that enable you to create a repeatable product development process.

Got questions about IoT platforms? We have answers.

You might have tons of questions about IoT and its platforms. Luckily, we have some answers. We listed some of our most frequently asked questions below.

With all these interesting IoT technologies, how do I keep my focus on actual product innovation?

Remember that the technology is only a means to an end when it comes to product development. Think about where there is an opportunity to develop a new product and how it adds value for users. Only then you should consider which technologies you can use. Selected the right technology? Then you still need to think about customer experience first, before anything else. If you've picked IoT as your go-to tech, then AllThingsTalk Spaces can help you do just that. Using the most relevant technologies, Spaces will help you reach your end goals.

Where do I start when developing IoT products?

Bring even the faintest idea to life by creating a prototype. With AllThingsTalk Spaces, you have a versatile and affordable tool that allows you to quickly prototype with a minimum of effort and investment. As the actual production of a new product is not a decision your customers make with a snap of the fingers, an early test set-up can show them the possibilities of an idea. The insights they learn from the prototype will help them make critical business decisions.

How will IoT help me to continuously improve my products and services?

Connected objects let you closely monitor product usage and collect data about it. With insights gained from that information in hand, you can better and much more quickly tailor products to your customers' wishes and usage. This way, you effectively answer their demands even before they are spoken.

To successfully design products, you need to understand that technology is only one part of the equation. Creating and capturing value, defining metrics for success and continuously driving new business opportunities are as equally important as technology and will guarantee your customers' loyalty in the years to come. Want to know more about how to best develop IoT products? Then you're in luck because we've written an ebook about it.
