The machine-to-machine industry is providing companies with opportunities to integrate these technologies into their own solution offerings, achieve productivity gains, discover potential new revenue streams, and create strategic advantages over their competitors. However, implementing an M2M project can be a daunting prospect when you need to bring together components from a complex and rather large value chain while meeting the requirements of all participants.
For example, selecting a network service provider is a critical link in the value chain, and in Europe there are many carriers, obtaining network approval from the operator is required before deploying the solution. Understanding these requirements and the knowledge of how to navigate the process is crucial to a successful and timely launch of an M2M solution.
Red Squirrel provides clients with the experience required to lead enterprises through this critical and complex value chain assembly endeavor while focusing on core business needs, thus assuring a smooth integration of M2M applications into existing processes.
The Red Squirrel Insight offers:
- Viability assessment of the M2M application
- Creation of key dependencies in the value chain
- Vendors selection assistance
- Project management expertise
