KORE Shares Insight on IoT Connectivity Infrastructure Strategies

e-Book Assists in Critical Decision-Making Process on Creating IoT Connectivity Infrastructure from Scratch versus Purchasing a Ready-Made Solution

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KORE, the people powering the Internet of Things (IoT) innovations and opportunities, today released an e-Book titled "Build vs. Buy: Choosing the Right Connectivity Infrastructure for your IoT Application." The guide explores both the pros and cons of building an Internet of Things connectivity infrastructure from the ground up and purchasing off-the-shelf solutions to support the implementation.


As IoT adoption continues to excel at an exponential pace, the vendor ecosystem is expanding and evolving to benefit businesses with choices that were once nonexistent. At the heart of any connected solution is the connectivity infrastructure, and businesses now have the option to build their own infrastructure from the ground up, or purchase an off-the-shelf solution. This eBook provides insight for decision-makers to analyze both the "Build" and the "Buy" scenarios, and choose the best for their organization.

"Scalable connectivity options have accelerated IoT to near-ubiquity across enterprises. Now that a ‘Build vs. Buy' decision exists, it's increasingly important for organizations to consider the merits of both options and choose the infrastructure that makes the most business sense," said Alex Brisbourne, CEO, KORE. "The learnings we've gained partnering with businesses of all sizes throughout many industries are shared in this guide. It's our hope that it will equip readers with the insight necessary to make decisions that propel their business forward with cost savings and efficiency."
