The Internet of Things era promises to create new business models, improve business processes, and reduce costs and risks. But, in reality, how do enterprises deal with a projected 30X increase in smart equipment – when they are struggling to manage what they have now?

    Riptide IO's Brightworks platform, backed by Cassandra, brings the advantages of modern software architecture to enterprise device management.
