IoT is disruptive and is designed to connect myriad devices, applications and on-premises infrastructure to provide users with real-time access to devices. In a few coming years, there will be millions of consumers accessing millions of connected devices which is growing at an ever expanding rate. With the application of IoT on absolutely everything it goes without saying that there will be many challenges for companies to manage each and every one of their devices. The size, scope, complexity, and volume of connected devices surmounts, that there is just no way for businesses to manually keep pace with all of the connections, even if they have fully trained IT professionals.
Organizations with thousands of devices finds it challenging to maintain the constant functioning of their devices. Sometimes it gets difficult to track each and every device’s health or to ensure that each of the consumers is having a positive experience. For instance, if any device is having an issue with its functioning then it becomes time consuming task of scouring event logs to find issues and to resolve it within a time frame. Analyzing the issue could take anywhere from days to weeks. Even worse, many people are stuck with tools that are cumbersome to use.
Fortunately there are ways to mitigate these problems. Deploying IoT monitoring in real-time can help to maintain the reliability, availability, and performance of IoT devices and resolve problems from hours or days to mere minutes. Effectively utilizing monitoring tools helps to deliver diagnostics and real-time solutions which could help the service providers to minimize the impact of the disruptions.
Similarly, Growlytics delivers valuable insights required to ease the load of an organization by providing details like issues faced by a IoT device throughout its lifetime, list of users and devices affected due to a particular error, list of issues faced by a user and track device status in real-time, like online/offline status or consumption levels. This will also allow companies to put the focus back on the primary intent of IoT to collect and analyze more devices to optimize processes, reduce costs, improve quality of service and enhance the customer experience.
