For whom?

Enterprises, Public Services and Service Providers benefit from IoT collaboration

Interoperability and seamless collaboration between connected devices, services and people opens up new possibilities that improve business impact and user acceptance of IoT projects

IoT collaboration applies to all sectors of the economy

The benefits (here) delivered by natural language collaboration are not limited to a given area of “smart business” and apply to all sectors of professional or personal activity. Nevertheless, it is possible to provide some particularly relevant criteria to detect sweet spots for a collaborative IoT:

  • Interaction with people matter (families, citizens, employees, partners, customers, travelers…)

  • A fragmented IoT environment (multiple suppliers and platforms, staggered deployments, etc.)

  • Extensive infrastructures (shops, buildings, networks, cities, countries, etc.)

  • Workflows with frequent customization

  • IoT solutions built for long lifetime.

Public services

A smart city project takes times to be deployed, for practical and budgetary reasons.


The services it delivers either directly (timetable, waste management, air quality information) or indirectly (by reducing cost and improving quality of the city administration), must evolve easily and at reasonable cost, regardless of the technologies progressively selected during its long lifetime.


Moreover, in an inclusive city, citizens need to easily interact with the intelligent services deployed, just using their ordinary applications and without having to download and learn new specific applications.

Enterprises and SMBs

Enterprises and businesses using IoT workflows combining connected things and services from different providers, and people (employees, customers, partners…) should consider using Agora to decouple their business services from technologies and suppliers and focus on what matters to their business: their own processes.

Among the many smart activities that require business workflows across heterogeneous IoT infrastructures:

  • Agriculture

  • Building

  • Facility Management

  • Industry

  • Hospitality

  • Retail

  • Supply Chain

  • Utilities

  • etc.

Managed service providers and Telcos

Service providers and Telcos can integrate the Agora collaboration service into their existing offerings to better meet the needs of their customers (from SMBs to large accounts) and differentiate themselves through innovative value-added services.


Depending on their organization and strategy, they can either use:

  • a shared cloud platform

  • a dedicated cloud platform

  • or even deploy the solution in their own data center.
