Cloud Connectivity Powering IoT and IIoT Applications in Ft. Lauderdale at IoT Evolution Expo

With thousands of people flowing through this year’s IoT Evolution Expo, TagoIO sponsored a full-day event as part of one of the world’s longest-running and most popular gatherings bringing together the “movers and shakers” in the fast-growing connected systems world. TagoIO Connect 2020 was designed around real-world solutions built on the company’s platform to inspire others to adopt what the company says is a more efficient way to prototype, build, test, deliver and manage IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions.

With well over 600 IoT platforms in existence today, some designed for niche applications, and others – like TagoIO – offering end-to-end solutions for any industry or specialty solution – it is more important than ever in this new year and new decade to articulate what’s different and more compelling than what the competition offers.

We caught up with the CEO of TagoIO at the event, who explained that the definition of “end-to-end” cloud platforms varies between providers and that what is driving big wins for the company is an offering that integrates IoT dashboards, analytics, storage, notifications, device management, and user management functionality in a unified environment with a unified view.

“This is our second TagoIO Connect event held in tandem with IoT Evolution Expo,” said Fabio Rosa, CEO of the company. “Last year, we introduced our platform to dozens of developers, integrators, equipment manufacturers and industry observers and influencers, and this year we’re excited to announce added features, specifically created to dramatically improve the user experience. One example is the addition of an integration kit for the Apple Watch, which has received a great reception today.”

The company also introduced changes to its business model, designed to accelerate the adoption of IoT and improve the return on investment (ROI) for its customers.

The company brought along with them interested partners, including Pegasus, Semtech  Device Solutions, SenthiSYS, MonitoredTech, BeWhere, and WISER Systems.

Rosa said more than three thousand developers, on all continents, already use their cloud Internet of Things (IoT) platform, and that the partners participating in the event are driving adoption across an array of solutions that leverage TagoIO.

An innovator and entrepreneur, Rosa Fabio has worked with start-ups to large enterprises (including spending part of his career at Whirlpool). He holds a master's degree in Electrical Engineering and has an advanced certificate in Technology and Innovation from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and an MBA from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts (USA). Following is our Q&A with Rosa.

What is your theme for this year's IT Expo?

A new platform that goes beyond IoT.

What would you like our readers to understand about the company's newest offering?

Our experience working with thousands of applications and companies showed that the success of an IoT implementation relies heavily on customization and integration capabilities.

TagoIO has been built on top of these two characteristics: we offer a highly customizable platform that can fit several types of application & user demands, and that is very powerful to integrate sensors and users with the company’s current system.

What customer challenges do those offerings address, and how?

Our customers and prospects face high pressure from their business to deliver better results through what is called ‘digital transformation,’ and we help them with one key component of this process, that is, the IoT (Internet of things).  Our platform can easily bring information from sensors in real-time, process it, and automatically share within the company’s stakeholders.

Different departments can collaborate by looking for the same source and tools, reducing the need for training, making it easier for decision making and actions to take. TagoIO can be integrated with its current system to maximize the return of the investment.

Is there one thing that you would like our readers to come away with?

Using the powerful modules provided by the TagoIO platform, companies have been able to create fully customized solutions quickly, at low cost, with the ability to scale up these solutions with confidence.
