Indian company iYogi has launched what it claims to be India’s first enterprise grade IoT platform, the Digital Service Cloud Open IoT Platform (http://www.digitalservicecloud.com), based on Microsoft Azure.
iYogi says innovators can use the platform to deploy, monitor and automatically manage their products across millions of end users, easily integrate their products with the growing IoT ecosystem, and use its advanced analytics capabilities to build and fast track their global growth strategies.
Uday Challu, CEO of iYogi, said that more than four years, and $US35 million had gone into the development of the platform. “We believe this is exactly what is needed by IoT innovators. It’s easy to set up, and can scale from one-digit to over a million transactions quickly.”
Anil Reddy, head of strategy at Microsoft India, said: “Digital Service Cloud Open IoT Platform is a good example of global innovation. It builds on Azure’s capabilities and can help IoT companies rapidly reach millions of customers across the globe. This will jump start innovation in IoT, amongst businesses of all sizes and maturity, across a variety of segments. This would help them serve their customers better by building on newer scenarios and capabilities enabled by IoT and Microsoft Azure.”
Partner program launched
iYogi has also launched the Digital Service Cloud Open IoT Partner Program under which start-ups can use the platform for free, for up-to one million devices, and receive additional resources and development support. The company says it plans to create a showcase of more than 100 IoT solutions over the next one year.
It lists early adopters of the platform and members of the Digital Service Cloud Open IoT Partner Program as being
– COOEY, a family health-monitoring platform that collects, analyses and provides insights about patient data;
– SmartBuildings, which improves comfort, health and energy efficiency in commercial buildings via 24×7 monitoring and control of air conditioning systems.
– Yuvera, whose omni-channel retail product Linqs enables customers to digitally explore products in-store.
