Samsung ARTIK platform delivers power of IoT
Samsung’s end-to-end platform opens the way for companies to create IoT products
Samsung Electronics has introduced its expanded Samsung ARTIK smart Internet of Things (IoT) platform featuring two new module families, ARTIK 0 and ARTIK 7, new device management capabilities in Samsung ARTIK cloud and an expanded partner ecosystem.
According to the vendor, the result is a complete IoT development solution to help companies take their IoT projects from concept to reality in record time.
According to a recent research study by 451 Group, 65% of enterprises are using IoT to optimise their services and product offerings.
With the Samsung ARTIK platform, many of these enterprises now can build IoT solutions to further transform their businesses and enter new markets, the company said.
"IoT is one of Samsung's major strategic areas of focus and growth," said Dr. Byungse So, Executive Vice President and CTO for the Samsung Strategy and Innovation Centre. "By enabling the product-development cycle to flourish, we can help usher in the next generation of IoT innovation. We are paving the way for companies to reimagine how these new devices, apps and services can impact everyday life to address global challenges."
Samsung said businesses struggle to build IoT solutions in-house. They have to grapple with the tasks of building a scalable infrastructure, adding new expertise and managing cumbersome integrations. The Samsung ARTIK Smart IoT end-to-end platform provides companies with all the upfront IoT hardware and software they need, so they can focus on developing disruptive IoT products quickly and simply, the company added.
Internal groups at Samsung are leveraging the Samsung ARTIK platform to build fresh new IoT solutions of their own.
"The Samsung ARTIK platform allowed us to cost-effectively build prototypes of our new solution and quickly get it to market," added Youngsoo Do, senior vice president of Digital Control Group, Samsung Electronics. "With the Samsung ARTIK platform, we also have the ability to connect intelligently to other smart devices, as well as to the cloud, which enables new use cases."
The Samsung ARTIK Smart IoT platform unifies hardware, software, cloud, security and partner ecosystems in a single offering so that enterprises can reduce the time, cost and risk typically associated with the delivery of complex IoT solutions.
