Tecnalia joined the BUTLER project to test the benefits of integrating some of their already existing healthcare products into BUTLER’s horizontal IoT platform. The success story is full of great features at both the integration step and the market approach. The first part of the chapter relates to the BUTLER infrastructure, an advanced IoT platform - very flexible and interoperable for third party services integration and very powerful in terms of features to take profit from. The second part regards to how some of the integrated healthcare products do open new market perspectives, not only improving product functionality to add value for the user, but also bringing the opportunity to penetrate new market segments.
