Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.

Logistics Visibility Services
Logistics Visibility Services
Fuji Xerox faced several challenges. Delivery inquiries from distributors had to be manually associated with order information and container B/L documents. Response to delivery inquiries was slow and delivery date estimates inaccurate because Fuji Xerox had to contact each transportation carrier for shipment status updates before warehousing dates could be estimated. Manual handling of an average of 1,800 inquiries a month created an excessive workload for staff. Distributors had begun securing extra stock in a system known as just-in-case inventory to prevent inventory shortages at hub warehouses in each region, leading to chronic over-inventory
