Case Study: Tech Strategy & Architecture for an IoT Platform

Home/Case Study: Tech Strategy & Architecture for an IoT Platform

Project Description

Client: A large consumer electronics company

Industry: Hi-tech

Situation: The company was building an ambitious IoT product for connected homes. The solution consisted of set of sensors deployed in multiple themes at homes and the data from them analysed to provide real-time and intelligent alerts on mobile devices.

Problem: The team was struggling to scale the solution to support the increasing user base, handle fragmentation of mobile devices, and present analytical data through simple visualizations on mobile. They were looking for experts to help with current architecture problems and assist in defining a long term technology roadmap.

Solution:

  • Analysed current pain points and suggested approaches to overcome the limitations.
  • Suggested approaches to streamline Mobile App development efforts to support multiple mobile platforms, handle security aspects and present simple visualizations of complex analytical data.
  • Advised a suitable long term strategy for achieving scale by using AWS, HDFS and Storm.
