What Is An Enterprise IoT Platform?
An enterprise IoT platform is a stack of technologies that enable internet-connected products and devices to send and receive data. IoT helps enterprises unlock new value from physical assets, using data to improve product offerings, generate new revenue streams, and better manage physical assets.
Enterprise IoT is a technical solution to a business problem. Depending on the use case and vertical, IoT can help control costs through preventative maintenance and asset monitoring, or provide new revenue models with subscription-based services that allow for recurring revenue rather than one-time purchases.
Any IoT solution made for enterprises should include the following:
- Hardware, including sensors, microcontrollers, on-device software, peripherals, and power management.
- An operating system, including OTA updates, user applications, a hardware abstraction layer, firmware libraries, and RTOS.
- Connectivity, including wireless network access, certifications, device provisioning, data plans, and SIM management.
- A cloud solution, including device management, data storage, REST APIs, application servers, and microservices.
An enterprise-grade IoT solution should also prioritize security and scalability, ensuring the safe transfer of data between endpoints and a centralized location as the number of devices increases.

Should You Build or Buy an IoT Platform?
IoT is complex, and building in-house makes it more difficult. We’ll show you how to think about the decision to build or buy an IoT platform.
A successful IoT deployment requires seamless orchestration of different components and four layers of the technology stack, including hardware, operating systems, cellular connectivity, and software.
Enterprises that decide to devote internal resources to building and maintaining an IoT ecosystem often fail to recognize the true total cost of ownership and how connectivity will drive business value. Many enterprises also neglect the risks that come with trying to build IoT themselves, such as delayed time to market, failed interoperability between microservices, and uncontrollable costs.
The “build vs. buy” decision is complex, and there are a lot of factors to consider before you start an IoT project. In this guide, we’ll show you the decision factors you should consider so you can make an informed choice about how to bring connectivity to your products.
Read this guide to learn:
- What it means to build vs. buy an IoT solution
- How to evaluate your core competencies vs. those of outsourced solutions
- What the most critical build vs. buy decision factors are and how Particle makes the decision easier
Enterprise IoT security that protects your deployment
Leverage Particle’s open source and end-to-end encrypted platform for out-of-the-box security and industry leading intelligent OTA capabilities for securing your deployment in the field.
Every Particle Device uses an encrypted connection to the Particle Device Cloud, authenticated with public key infrastructure eliminating the need for local passwords or open ports.
If it moves in our environment, we make sure you know about it. We do this through an open event logging framework that allows you and your team to get an instant overview of how a given device is operating.
Work with IoT Experts With Decades of Experience
Deploy thousands of devices with relative ease with Particle’s fully managed edge-to-cloud platform, as you get access to a team of world class engineers supporting and maintaining the Particle infrastructure.
