What is the Zatarian?

The Zatarian is an IoT Information & Technology blog where you can find the most cutting edge news from our Zatar team. We encourage you to check it out to learn more about the latest Internet of Things trends.

Zatar is Zebra's cloud-based infrastructure that sees your devices and connects them to the Internet. It's the open platform to manage your entire device network. That means everyone - and everything - in your ecosystem can share data and collaborate. When that happens, you optimize your operations. You're better equipped to reinvent your business. And you can begin to build entirely new customer experiences. Zatar is the ideal software platform to build Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications.

Here is an excerpt from a recent Zatarian blog post:

3 Steps to Ensure IoT Success

Are you on the verge of implementing an IoT solution? Whether you’re in the planning phases or already implementing change, following 3 simple steps will help ensure IoT success.

So how can you ensure IoT success?

The IoT is all about things – devices, people, data and connections. According to FoxCT, IoT is “the advanced connectivity of devices, systems and services which have the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”

Previously we defined the IoT as “smart interconnected devices that provide more visibility into the organization’s operation events.” Given Gartner’s prediction of nearly 26 billion connected devices by 2020 we’d do well to understand the building blocks of IoT.
