Rackspace Technology has announced new Internet of Things (IoT) professional services capabilities aimed at helping customers across all stages of their IoT journey.
“With more than 25 billion connected devices expected to be in use by 2021, our customers are under constant pressure to bring solutions to market quickly,” said Rackspace CTO Tolga Tarhan. “Our enhanced IoT services and capabilities enable enterprises to reduce the time and cost associated with piloting new initiatives, free up resources typically allocated to navigating complexities, and ultimately, speed up time to market.”
Components of the initiative include a 5-day assessment by a team of IoT experts who evaluate IoT use cases and provide recommendations for pilot solutions, including a backlog, roadmap, and cost estimate for hardware, firmware, and cloud architecture; assistance with design and development of tailored, scalable solutions leveraging IoT device hardware, platform, and analytics; a “Modernization” service designed for customers who want to re-platform their IoT platform to take advantage of cloud native technologies; a prototyping service that enables customers to create pilot solutions; and an IoT Cloud offering that leverages services like AWS IoT Core, Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and Amazon DynamoD to help customers fast-track solution design, development, and deployment.
By leveraging the connectivity, storage application, analytics and other capabilities, Rackspace intends to help customers quickly build IoT solutions tailored to unique use cases.
