With over 400 IoT platforms on the market and growing quickly, IoT analyst firm Beecham Research and its partner IoT Global Network launch the first fully-independent, online IoT navigation tool to match adopter needs with IoT platform capabilities. IoT platforms provide the middleware to facilitate secure monitoring, control, and analysis of device and sensor data along with integration to enterprise IT systems. As such, they are quickly becoming an essential element of IoT solutions in order to reduce time to market and development costs.
The aim of the new IoT navigation tool is to accelerate IoT market growth by assisting adopters to make informed decisions about which platforms are most likely to meet their requirements at any particular time. It does not seek to recommend one platform over others, but it does narrow the field to a level that adopters can manage effectively. By providing a short list of platforms most likely to be of interest to each individual user enquiry, it is part of the learning process and means that adopters can commence a more valuable dialogue with the most appropriate vendors at an earlier stage.
