February 2020 Newsletter

by | Feb 25, 2020

Dear Friends and Fellow Builders of Hardware Products, 


I hope you had a productive February - which may or may not have included a romantic Valentine’s day, some Presidential caucusing, and a chance to check out the new Ioterra website (shameless plug!) 


Unfortunately, Ioterra does not yet include any IoT solutions to make your crush fall in love with you before Valentine’s day, nor to rig the presidential primaries (Rest assured, if we come across either of these we’ll be sure to include them in a future newsletter!). 


However, we do have some exciting new announcements in our February newsletter below. 


Have a great month,


CEO/ Co-founder of Ioterra


PS - If you have a spare second, please do follow us on social:  Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn.Thank you for your support!

IoT Hardware Development Insights Study - 2019

We received over 700 submissions of our Product Development Estimator Tool throughout 2019. The submissions from hundreds of innovators around the world have given us extraordinary insight into some of the key trends in IoT, including what companies are trying to build and why. We’ve made our results available through our 1st annual IoT Hardware Development Insights Report. This report details our findings of key development decisions companies are making as well as average development costs, development timelines, and other crucial details that go into creating IoT initiatives.
