Zebra's cloud-based Zatar platform underpins its connected world solutions, often referred to as the Internet of Things. Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are particularly relevant in retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics industries, which are the focus of the combined Zebra/Motorola Solutions organization.
