What is a SaaS innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Entrants should take into account important IoT considerations such as automation, security, integration, etc.

A SaaS innovation in the IoT could be a cloud-based platform that helps businesses manage and analyze the data collected from their IoT devices. This platform could offer features such as real-time monitoring, predictive analytics, and automation of tasks. For example, a SaaS platform could help a manufacturing company track and manage its IoT-enabled equipment to optimize production processes, minimize downtime, and reduce maintenance costs. Another example could be a SaaS platform that helps cities monitor and manage their smart infrastructure, such as streetlights and traffic systems, to improve safety and reduce energy consumption.

Quote From Lead Judge –  Richard Geary 

The judges at SaaS Awards recognise how much of a challenge it is to create an IoT solution that is able to integrate with not just one operating system, but dozens of independently produced chips and controllers, and ultimately produce a system that is able to run on any vehicle from any manufacturer. Congratulations, Sibros, for your well-deserved win at SaaS Awards 2022!”
