IoT Middleware: Application Enablement Platforms and Services

Purchase

IoT middleware platforms continued to gain momentum in 2014 as a critical element in the IoT solution enablement and nowhere is this trend more evident than in the Application Enablement Platform (AEP) market. The core value proposition of these platforms is to ease connectivity, device management, and data collection activities of any IoT solution. The year 2014 saw three important trends which are validating the value of these platforms: first, Intel and several other chipset vendors are formulating their IoT strategies and AEP vendors are key partners supporting their move "up the stack"; second, the number of AEP vendors has expanded and some of the longstanding players, ILS, Axeda, and ThingWorx, were acquired demonstrating AEP market value and momentum; finally, GE recently announced it would make its Predix platform available for 3rd party use further demonstrating the value of IoT middleware platforms for the Industrial Internet.

This report provides a deep dive assessment of the trends and competitive landscape both driving and slowing adoption of AEPs. Included is AEP market sizing across six world regions, 11 application segments, by connectivity type, and by cloud distribution model. Finally, the report provides an extensive review of the application enablement supplier landscape across both platform vendors and other players providing competing services. Supplier review includes key capabilities, market positioning and services delivery models, and the likely evolution path for the AEP business model.
