Worth pointing out...

WDF and the Wolfram Language represent real-world data

WDF and the Wolfram Language have a precise standard symbolic representation for units, geolocations, time series, materials and other attributes relevant to IoT devices.

The Wolfram Language runs on small systems

Thanks to decades of tight software engineering, the full Wolfram Language can run on the emerging generation of SoC systems—and is for example bundled with the Raspian operating system.

The Wolfram Data Drop is optimized for device manufacturers

Manufacturer-generated IDs can immediately be used to create databins that can be used throughout the Wolfram technology universe.

Get reports on the web, mobile or by API

The Wolfram Universal Deployment System seamlessly deploys data reports on the web, on mobile and through APIs.

Talk to your device to tell it what to do

The Wolfram Programmable Linguistic Interface lets you build up your grammar—leveraging the built-in Wolfram NLU system—to specify actions for your device to perform.

Immediate Consumer Access through Wolfram|Alpha

Through Wolfram|Alpha and its licensees, Wolfram has an immediate channel for accessing IoT data and capabilities in the Wolfram Cloud.

The Wolfram Language has state-of-the-art analytics

From signal processing to image analysis to machine learning to frontier mathematics, the Wolfram Language has the world's broad and deepest integrated analytics capabilities.

Top-quality reports with CDF + Wolfram Cloud

Wolfram's Computable Document Format makes it easy to make interactive reports, delivered locally or deployed in the cloud—incorporate the Wolfram Language's award-winning visualizations.

Use natural language to get what you want

The Wolfram Natural Language Understanding System lets you use free-form natural language to request particular reports, specify analyses to do, etc.
