As part of the discussions on IoT software, one of the most active debates is about the difference between IoT platforms and IoT products. The distinguishing aspects of a platform are the ability for others to build products and a strong versatility. Products are stand-alone solutions, they solve a specific need for the user and, by definition, are less flexible. Solair started as an application platform which enables any type of IoT application with no limits in term of markets or features. While most IoT companies are focused on assembling the basic building blocks to connect a product, Solair's technology injects the information generated from connected products directly into an organization’s business processes.
