Digital Transformation driven by the Internet of Things

“Internet of Things” (IoT) is a concept born in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

It simply refers to objects that connect to the internet, intelligent objects, here are some examples:

  • Grupo Balfegó controls the cold chain from the capture of Bluefin Tuna to its distribution using sensors that record temperatures and send alerts if they exceed the scale established for maintaining product quality, initiating processes in AuraPortal through Web Services.
  • Frutas Bean applies ISO standards to product quality through measuring sweetness and texture of the fruit as required by the destination countries. These controls are performed using sensors that take samples and report through Web Services to AuraPortal.
  • Generation of Alerts and Alarms caused by stoppages in the Production Chain connected to AuraPortal through Web Services.

This digitization is transforming business, because companies are becoming intelligent companies. We are witnessing a new technology, in which solutions have proliferated in a short period of time.

What’s more, it not only affects our daily lives, but also the health sector, the urban infrastructure sector, the mass production industry and global security, among others. As a result, so many businesses are being forced to drastically change their business models.

IoT is one form of digital transformation that has just begun with a great impact, and it marks the future of AuraPortal’s interaction with its surrounding environment.
