Samsung announced a new service yesterday to enable IoT (Internet of Things) data economy. It is the Samsung ARTIK™ Cloud Monetization that monetizes data shared by IoT devices. This will let service providers and device manufacturers generate revenue directly from interactions with services and devices.
The ARTIK™ Cloud of the company provides an open and diverse ecosystem for device manufacturers to generate new revenue streams. They can also implement new business models. Creating service plans for the service providers is also going to prove advantageous for enhancement in the markets.
