IoT Purpose-Built Platforms: The Key Battleground of 2015

This IDC study characterizes the state of today's IoT purpose-built platforms for IoT solution vendors' strategy consideration.

"Bringing an IoT solution to market without a tightly aligned and integrated IoT purpose-built platform is quickly becoming a failing strategy," says Vernon Turner, senior vice president of Enterprise Systems and research fellow (IoT). "Evaluation of the IoT platform vendors as candidates for partnership or acquisition is an arduous task but an essential one for IoT solution providers wanting to be on their way to revenue and installed base success out to 2020 and beyond."
