Internet of things applications dev companies ( software & hardware) would recommend for us?

We are looking for Internet of things development companies that could help us with our solutions.
We would ideally want to partner with developers that have both hardware & software experience and also have industrial settings experience as this is the majority of our work.

So what I'm hearing you say Vasilis - is that you have a B2B solution offering in mind that is going to require hardware and software development, and that it is likely to be involved in industrial settings.

Based on this I don't think you need to be "IoT"  (which I recently heard aptly described as Internet of Tinkering).  what you really are looking for is a developer who is experienced in building embedded solutions in industrial settings.   That can include IoT - but unfortunately a lot of current "IoT" experts come from a world of Agile/Internet 2.0/Release To Web methodology that is not very realistic in an embedded systems world.


I would recommend you look at companies with experience in embedded SCADA systems (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition)  which is realistically what "Industrial IoT"  or "Industry 4.0" is.   SCADA systems have basically been doing for the last 20+ years  what IoT claims it will do someday.  

What IoT has done for this industry is push the cost floor downwards with everything from cheap RFiD sensors to less expensive "plant floor" sensor systems.   They have been working on "Cheap, Light, and Functional"  now for some 40 years  (they 20+ years is since wireless came into it).

As such that segment of the industry is much more sensitive to security, reliability and service capability than most of the IoT industry

Dear all , thank you for your kind answers & replies. 

Maybe i should be more specific. We are looking for companies / developers that we could brief on our business problem and then receive advice on potential solutions and help us on the development end to end. The nature of our industry is pretty custom so we need support on everything from mechanical / electrical design, industrial engineering , software development etc etc all elements comprising an Industrial IoT application. Ideally, given the complexity of the tasks, we would like the vendors to do all in house or have their own ecosystem. 
Our applications are supply chain focused, thus the Industrial and custom nature. Hope this helps, 
Again thank you all for your help, 
Best , 
Vasilis

Hi Vasilis, 

Further to your specific requirement "We are looking for companies / developers that we could brief on our business problem and then receive advice on potential solutions and help us on the development end to end"

Good luck, regards Henry
