Altizon named in Gartner Competitive Landscape of IoT Platform Vendor Report 2017
It’s often a huge challenge for the end users to choose right IoT implementation partner in the ever growing yet highly fragmented and poorly differentiated IoT Platform Market. That’s where recognized analysts reports become the Holy Grail for end users to select the right IoT Implementation Partner. And more than ever the industry practitioners have been eyeing the Gartner Market Guide for IoT Platforms.
Recently, Gartner published its well researched comprehensive report for ‘Competitive Landscape of IoT Platform Vendors‘ for 2017. Altizon is proud to be named in this report. The report is useful for the two core end user buying centers – the OEMs and the Operators/Owners.
Mapping out the Competitive IoT Platform landscape for 2017, Gartner surveyed and evaluated numerous vendors for clear differentiation (business value), technology stack, architecture, ease of implementation, vertical market solutions, the ecosystem of partners and long-term strategic engagement. From the pool of hundred such companies offering IoT Solutions, Altizon is recognized as one of the few top TSPs (Technology Service Providers). And Altizon shares the market space with most frequented Large Industrial players and OT Megavendors such as PTC’s ThingWorx, Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, IBM Watson IoT, GE Predix, Siemens MindSphere and others. Instead of organizing the vendors based on their IoT platform revenue, the competitive landscape lays out the vendors based on the scale of the company/parent company.
The report reviews the core competencies of the TSPs from the viewpoint of two main end users – OEMs and the Operators/Owners. Under the ‘Strategic Planning Assumption, that by 2020, 65% of companies that adopted the Internet of Things (IoT) will utilize an IoT platform for at least one IoT project’; the report highlights the opportunities for differentiation in the bifurcated market.
While the external IoT Value (incremental revenue or deeper customer insights) for a limited type of homogenous ‘Things’ is the main focus for OEMs, the internal IoT Value (improving operations, reducing costs or increasing productivity) for a variety of heterogeneous assets is the primary focus for the Owners. It hints at the vendors to provide proof of concepts with more measurable outcomes such as Payback or ROI.
