Cloud Credential Council (CCC)
With the rapid rise in the adoption of IoT, many companies are taking this opportunity to enter the market and profit from it using different business models (generating revenue, improving efficiency, etc.).
Some of the following entities will benefit highly in IoT monetization:
● Device manufacturers that collect data (sensors, actuators, data loggers, etc.)
● Connectivity providers that transmit data (communication protocols)
● Cloud service providers that store huge amounts of data (with backups, business continuity, and disaster recovery)
● Big data analysts that provide valued information
● End-to-end system integrators and providers that provide the complete solution from data collection to decisive information
Link Monetization to Customer Value
