The platform has been adopted by Cooey, a family health-monitoring platform that collects, analyses and provides insights about patient data. Other users include SmartBuildings which improves comfort, health and energy efficiency in commercial buildings via 24x7 monitoring and control of air conditioning systems.

Speaking on the platform's launch, iYogi CEO Uday Challu said: "Recognising the potential economic and social impact of IoT, the global technology industry is witnessing a burst of innovation. A platform that brings this innovation ecosystem together is essential to propel the industry further."

"More than four years, and $35 million have gone into the development of our platform - and we believe this is exactly what is needed by IoT innovators. It is easy to set up, and can scale from one-digit to over a million transactions quickly," he added.

iYogi also launched a partner programme to support growth of the IoT ecosystem, under which start-ups can use the platform for free, for up to a million devices, and will receive additional resources and development support. The company plans to create a showcase of more than 100 IoT solutions over the next one year.
