Industrial IoT Research Methodology
Gartner defines IIoT platforms as a set of integrated software capabilities that improve asset management decision making as well as operational visibility and control for plants, depots, infrastructure and equipment within asset-intensive industries. For this market evaluation, Gartner focused on three market segments: transportation, utilities, and manufacturing and nature resources.
Gartner's Magic Quadrant ranks vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in four categories: Niche Players (low on vision and execution), Visionaries (good vision but low execution), Challengers (good execution but low vision) and Leaders (excelling in both vision and execution). However, for this IIoT quadrant, Gartner did not rank any vendor as a 'Leader' or 'Challenger.'
Here are the 11 vendors that made Gartner's first-ever Industrial IoT Magic Quadrant, along with Gartner's assessments of each company's strengths and weaknesses in the space.
