What is IoT Analytics Software

IoT is a combination of technologies, software and services, tools, policies, platforms, guidelines approaches, and a set of professional services. IoT Analytics software and solutions are defined and judged by their capabilities to reduce the overall operational time, cost, and required expertise, to develop analytics-rich AoT applications. The solutions are primarily responsible for collecting, integrating, cleansing, and filtering data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices. The solutions then apply model-based and data-driven prediction analytics, as well as, optimization and simulation on the collected data, to generate useful information.
