After an in-depth evaluation process, MachNation identifies 10 AEPs that meet enterprises’ criteria for providing IoT solutions.
MachNation now announces the availability of its IoT Application Enablement ScoreCard for 2015, an in-depth rating of 23 application enablement platform (AEP) vendors.
The 2015 IoT Application Enablement ScoreCard from MachNation is claimed to be the industry’s most comprehensive technical evaluation of the IoT platforms providing device connectivity, device management, data management, event processing, alerting and notifications, dashboards and analytics.
The ScoreCard is a tool for enterprises looking to deploy an IoT solution, technology vendors looking for an IoT platform partner and venture capitalists and financiers seeking a deeper understanding of the differences between vendors. MachNation’s ScoreCard puts vendors into four categories:
- Application Enablement Platforms (AEPs)
- Platform Enabled Solutions (PESs)
- Specialised IoT Middleware (SIoTM)
- Specialised Solution Providers (SSPs)
“The IoT application enablement space is one of the most dynamic and rapidly blossoming elements of the IoT technology stack,” said Dima Tokar, co-founder and CTO of MachNation. “Even though the industry is growing quickly, there is a lot of variance between the most prepared and the least prepared vendors in MachNation’s ScoreCard.”
According to Tokar, “In order to capture the key trends in the ecosystem, we completed an in-depth look at the following vendors: Aeris, Amazon, ARM, Autodesk, Ayla Networks, Bug Labs, Carriots, Cumulocity, Davra Networks, Electric Imp, EVRYTHNG, Exosite, IBM, MachineShop, PLAT.ONE, PTC, SAP, Sierra Wireless, Telit, Waylay, Xively, Yaler and Zebra Technologies. We were pleased by the progress made by some vendors in our second ScoreCard.”
