MachNation’s 2020 IoT Device Management (DM) ScoreCard, an in-depth rating of 13 Internet of Things (IoT) device management platform vendors, is now available.

In order to capture the key trends in the ecosystem, the US-based analyst firm completed an in-depth analysis of the following vendors: Amazon, Amplia, Arm, AVSystem, Ayla Networks, Blynk IoT, Bosch, Harman, Microsoft, Nokia, Particle, PTC, and Software AG.

This is the fourth year that MachNation has produced its IoT Device Management ScoreCard.

According to Josh Taubenheim, IoT analyst with MachNation, “Enterprises that recognise the importance of excellent device management practices at every layer of their implementation have more cogent IoT solutions overall. Evaluating winning strategies for enterprises against industry trends offers great insight into what businesses and the IoT world consider to be best-in-class device management capabilities.”

MachNation, which describes itself as “the industry’s only test lab for IoT platforms”, recognises the value of relevant, high-quality, time-saving IoT platform research. Its IoT Device Management ScoreCard is a technical review of relevant vendors. The research provides a detailed review of product capabilities, SDKs, APIs, and documentation to help businesses and service providers manage IoT sensors, devices, and gateways at scale.

“Conducting this research study annually over the past four years has helped MachNation refine our view of industry best practices and inform our = recommendations to our clients,” comments Sam Hale, analyst and lead architect for MIT-E Pf, MachNation’s IoT performance testing software. “Our specific recommendations come from a broad understanding of how enterprises use device management in their myriad use cases, extensive developer effort to implement our own solutions, and countless hours speaking with the people that use these products in their everyday business.”
