The Road to Integration: Part 2 — Application Development
If you have read our previous article, you now understand how IOTA technology can suit your needs and which IOTA building blocks are available for you.
The next step is to build your IOTA-powered solution.
Remember that we are always happy to help if you need assistance with the technical integration of IOTA technology. This might be as simple as explaining how to use existing APIs to deploying your own node or Private Tangle, as well as integrating IOTA into your enterprise stack and application ecosystem. Also, do not forget that our application blueprints, like the IOTA Data Marketplace or the IOTA Industry Marketplace, already demonstrate DLT-specific scenarios and provide well-defined APIs which simplify the integration and accelerate your own research and solution building.
You should carefully evaluate integrating those designs if your solution is drafted to provide data integrity, machine-to-machine contract agreements, and payments for data and services.
However, in the case you are designing something completely novel you might want to consider taking one step back and start with an ideation or innovation workshop to get a better understanding of your as-is situation. Strategic consulting through the IOTA Foundation (IF) or integration partners is always an option to support and accelerate the development and implementation of new digital business models.
The figure below provides the methodology of our innovation process.
For the sake of this article (and as a natural continuation from its part 1), we assume that this innovation process has already been completed and the value of your solution is understood.
With that done, the solution development and integration phase can start (right part of the figure above).
Let’s dive into how a solution development with IOTA will look like.
We have clustered the different stages of solution ...
