06/29/16 Added Connecthings IoT Platform, added Released Date

Application Development & Integration:Almost every company offers a platform that can be connected to via more than just Ethernet or WiFi, such as via cellular, satellite, or low power/short range communication (Bluetooth, ZigBee, etc.). Common communication protocols among these platforms include HTTP and MQTT. MQTT is an extremely lightweight machine-to-machine (M2M)/IoT connectivity protocol. All platforms have device management and data management capabilities.

Woman Owned Small Disadvantaged Business

Analytics:All platforms have strong analytic capabilities, including Hadoop scale data management and storage, as well as the ability to gather real-time data insights.

And where is Kaa IoT Platform?? It looks like one of the best platforms for industrial automation. Can you add it?

Great comparison, but I think Microsoft is a it misrepresented:

1. Microsoft has already integrated Jasper into Azure IoT Suite so Telecom integration is quite easy

Why AWS has not Telecom Integration? I think it has Workflow too with Amazon Simple Workflow Service

2. Access via more than internet category seems strange. Communications with non-ip enabled devices are conducted via field gateways. Microsoft has field gateway SDK (sample open source code) for that. I currently run a few projects with this set up.

Devices:One thing that most all platforms have in common is the ability to send device commands, meaning they are able to send messagestothe devices. Other common capabilities of these platforms include device identification, device lifecycle management, device registries, and device/client/service libraries. A few of the platforms include object storage, some provide SDKs, and some have virtual device capabilities.

Other:Ayla, C3 IoT, Connecthings, Cumulocity, GE, IBM, Intel, Jasper, M2Mi, PTC, SAP, and Xively have won awards regarding the Internet of Things. Most all of the platforms have a free trial and/or a starter kit for an easy jump start. As far as pricing goes, most depend on the number of devices that are connected plus the amount of data traffic and data storage used. However, some platforms have everything included within the cost of the platform and some charge for the platform plus additional add-ons.

You are totally missing one of the leading open source IoT Platform from Eclipse based on Cura and Kapua Open Source distribution and obviously its commercial version available from Eurotech EveryWare IoT with ESF (EveryWare Software Framework) and EveryWare Cloud. Eurotech donated the core to Eclipse since several years. This platform it is available since 2012 and it is today one of the platform with more real production deployments in several different verticals.


The first section gives general information about the various platforms, including the platform name, the Platform as a Service (PaaS) used, and the date the platform became available. Most were released fairly recently, whereas Cumulocitys platform has been around since 2010, C3 IoTs since 2009, Connecthings since 2007, M2Mis since 2006, and Jaspers since 2004. All platforms are delivered in the cloud, however, Bosch, C3 IoT, Carriots, Kaa, M2Mi, and PTC also offer their solutions on-premises.

Industrial Internet of Things Platform Comparison

The market for Internet of Things (IoT) platforms is rapidly evolving. With an ever increasing number of available platforms to choose from, we decided it would be helpful to lay out their features and capabilities for easy comparison. To complete our matrix, we used the following criteria: a major IoT player with a platform that has real-world success implementing industrial use cases.

Training / resources provided during trials (3 trial options)

Also I would add a bit more depth onto analytics space big data, machine learning capabilities etc

06/12/17 Added C3 IoT Platform

It would help me a lot to have a few examples and references for further scrutiny.
