M2M software platforms are key tools in the delivery of M2M applications and services as the M2M market evolves and enters its next stage of growth. Two software platforms will lead the charge: Connected Device Platforms and Application Enablement Platforms. Connected Device Platforms (CDP) automate the provisioning and management of M2M module connectivity. CDP platforms also provide connectivity monitoring, real-time charging and policy control, and can integrate with existing BSS and OSS platforms. Application Enablement Platforms (AEP) try to emulate what mobile application development platforms do for smartphone applications - decrease M2M application development time and extend application reach. AEP application development functionality seeks to abstract away from the developer those aspects of the application that are common across many M2M applications such as data normalization and a data rules engine. This Market Data package provides revenue forecasts for each platform including each platform's TAM (Total Addressable Market). Revenues are further segmented by region (including the United States and Canada), by application, and regional breakouts of each application.
