"InterDigital continues to develop and extend a broad range of partnerships spanning analytics, business intelligence, reporting, monitoring and data visualization," noted Drozd. "Data services providers are strongly drawn to the wot.io operating environment, as it gives them access to a growing client base and aids easier integration with other IoT-focused solutions."
