Internet of Things Cloud Platform Research

by Erik T. Heidt  |  October 26, 2016  |  Comments Off on Internet of Things Cloud Platform Research


GTP is kicking off the next phase of our research on Internet of Things Cloud Platforms. The specific format, timing and scope for final publications has not been determined, but we plan to begin publishing Q1 of 2017.

Do you have a current IoT Cloud Platform?
Consider participating in this research by setting up a briefing.
The agenda for these calls will center around these five questions:

  1. What is your current IoT Platform architecture and its capabilities?
  2. What is your roadmap for 2017 and beyond?
  3. How do you differentiate yourself from other platform providers?
  4. Do you have a strategy for enabling client development, deployment or operation of Edge Endpoints?
  5. What are your marquee customer success stories?

Follow this agenda and sequence for the first 45 minutes of the briefing. If there are elements of your story that you feel don’t fit into this agenda, please present them after these five subjects.

Note: The criteria for inclusion in the research and the briefings are still evolving. Please include information about your current market presence in your request to Vendor Briefings.

Additional information about Gartner’s Vendor Briefing process can be found here.
Finally, please submit any materials that will be presented during your briefing a day in advance.

Thanks, Erik
