The steps for getting started with the deviceWISE IoT Platform vary depending on your situation. Each of the guides is grouped into parts. Each part will walk you through the use of the major components of the deviceWISE IoT Platform addressed in that guide. You should follow the parts in an individual guide in the order listed, as each completed task in earlier parts will be used in later parts of the guide. By the end of the getting started guide, you will be able to configure and connect various devices and applications to the deviceWISE M2M Service and you will be on your way to learning the deviceWISE IoT Platform.
