Summary

In this chapter, we introduced the concept of IoT service platforms and what they can be used for. IoT helps developers with common and required implementation tasks such as database communication, end user GUI generation, management, monitoring, administrative tasks, reporting, hosting, clustering, and so on. We saw the benefits of this approach by comparing the controller implementation on the Clayster platform with the controller implementation made in previous chapters.

In the next chapter, we will show you how the abstraction layers defined in such a platform can be used to efficiently create protocol gateways.
