IoT Analytics is a leading provider of market insights and strategic business intelligence for the Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and Industry 4.0.

More than 40,000 IoT decision makers rely on IoT Analytics data-driven market research every month.

Striking alliances to offer the full package (e.g., GE Predix & PTC Thingworx)

These IoT Platforms are the key for the development of scalable IoT applications and services that connect the real and virtual worlds between objects, systems and people. However, as the IoT Platform market represents a truly new segment that was almost non-existent a few years ago, the landscape is complex and changing very quickly.

When we talk about an IoT Platform we generally refer to anIoT Application Enablement Platform(see 2 below for the eight technological elements of these platforms).

Hardware-specific software platforms.

Companies are shifting their business models from selling products to handling dataOn top of that, we will see the creation of entirely new industries that build business models solely on IoT data and use hardware partners to get access to the necessary data sources (e.g., the insurance industry of the future). The IoT Platform itself becomes an essential enabler, a means of gathering and making sense of the data, while the real value will come applying the resulting insights to create great IoT services (e.g., predictive maintenance) for connected businesses.

Targeted acquisitions (e.g., Amazon 2lemetry) or contenders performing strategic mergers (e.g., Nokia & Alcatel-Lucent)

Existing enterprise software packages and operating systems such as Microsoft Windows 10 are increasingly allowing the integration of IoT devices. Currently these extensions are often not advanced enough to classify as a full IoT Platform but they may get there soon.

i want to conect some company in iran at this field but i dont know those company?

3. Go-to-market services for emerging IoT companies

Thanks for the great article. I understand the IoT market will be far bigger than USD 1Bi as mentioned on the article and only the BaaS market will reach USD 30 Billion in 2019. Players, such as, Parse, Back4app, Appcelerator and Kynvey and growing in a very fast pace and can speed up IoT integration.

Tactical investments throughout the IoT ecosystem (e.g., Cisco).

scalable storage of device data brings the requirements for hybrid cloud-based databases to a new level in terms of data volume, variety, velocity and veracity.

Great summary about different IoT platforms. Would like to point out that we from Zenodys, the visual IoT platform covers all 8 blocks.

I am a co-founder of an IoT startup in Taiwan. I found this topic very interesting.

Understand the offering of IoT platform vendors

There are 4 other types of platforms that are often referred to as IoT Platform:

These days many companies offer an IoT Platform but a closer comparison reveals vast differences. For a newcomer it can be difficult to understand whether this term refers to a complete and mature IoT cloud platform or whether the term has been stretched to describe just an element of a platform or even something completely different.

actions based on specific sensor data.

Some companies that sell connected devices have built their own proprietary software backend. They like to refer to the backend as an IoT Platform. Since the platform is not open to anyone else on the market it is debatable whether one should call it an IoT Platform. (An example is Google Nest)

Simple develop, deploy and monitise your IoT Service . Every IoT Developer is welcome

Thanks for this great article. I Would like to also mention

For example, PTC and Bosch Software Innovations collaboration is a prime example of a major technology alliance using Vorto to facilitate the integration and technical interplay between their two platforms.

In its simplest form, an IoT platform is just about enabling connectivity between things or devices. The architecture may also consist of a software platform, an application development platform or an analytics platform. In a more sophisticated form, atrue end-to-end IoT platformconsists of eight important architectural building blocks:

Thanks for the great article. Would like to mention KAA, the IoT open source platform.

Great article about IOT platforms. I am interesting to provide solution for IOT consumer development and wonder any open source development platform or tool available today.

Starting with the analytics part and building out platform features from the top-down (e.g., IBM IoT Foundation)

These platforms focus mainly on the connectivity of connected IoT devices via telecommunication networks (e.g., SIM-cards) but rarely on the processing and enrichment of different sets of sensor data. (An example of a connectivity platform is Sierra Wireless AirVantage)

integrate with 3rd-party systems and the rest of the wider IT-ecosystem via built-in application programming interfaces (API), software development kits (SDK), and gateways.

We are currently witnessing an explosion in IoT deployments and solutions around the world. IoT platforms are emerging as the central backbone of these IoT deployments By 2019, the IoT Platform marketwill reach $1 billion.

Infrastructure-as-a-service backends provide hosting space and processing power for applications and services. These backends used to be optimized for desktop and mobile applications but IoT is now also in focus. (An example is IBM Bluemix not to be confused with IBM IoT Foundation)

including detailed forecasts per segment and region focusing on sizing the opportunity of the IoT Platform market for the period 2015 to 2021

Note:Built-in security by design is a must-have element for all of these building blocks; the platform architecture has to be holistically designed so the threat of cyber attacks is minimised at every level.

This trend will be seen in many industries: selling the main product becomes a by-product, while the business model around the data becomes the main product.

To create a trueIoT ecosystem, where systems of systems interact and generate value from diverse streams of data, interoperability is essential. No one IoT platform will be able to cover the wide spectrum of existing and potential use cases yet to be envisaged.

are working properly, seamlessly running patches and updates for software and applications running on the device or edge gateways.

There aremore than 300 IoT platformsin the market today and the number is continuing to grow. However, as discussed not every platform is the same IoT platforms are being shaped by varying entry strategies of different companies trying to capitalise on the IoT potential. Innovative Startups, hardware and networking equipment manufacturers, enterprise software and mobility management companies are all competing to become the best IoT platform on the market. Various strategies are visible with companies:

The different types of IoT Platforms and the complex IoT Platform offerings create confusionA confusing aspect of IoT Platforms is that companies are starting to combine different services. IBM for example is combining its IoT Foundation application enablement platform with its Bluemix IaaS backend. Jasper and Telit, two companies that have traditionally focused in the Connectivity / M2M space have now added IoT application enablement capabilities to their offering.

Gathering and connecting data points from billions of physical objects is fundamental to lettingnew IoT business casescome to life. As Robert Metcalfe postulated in the 1980s: The value of a telecommunications network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system. Generating insightful data is the key to unlocking this value.
