What is the cloud's role in machine-to-machine (M2M) services?
The cloud will be an integral part of the delivery mechanism for all future digital services, including M2M.
Many M2M services will need to integrate with cloud-based databases and platforms to deliver a cohesive end-to-end service. The cloud enables service providers to bring these services to market with ease, and it will help accelerate M2M adoption. The reliability, availability, flexibility, cost savings and security of the cloud will be essential in ensuring that M2M services are trustworthy and operate properly.
