Back 1 ... 8   9   10   11  

Niche Player: Oracle

The Redwood City, Calif.-based vendor's Oracle IoT Cloud Service focuses on business applications over the underlying technology, supporting key applications such as IoT asset monitoring, production monitoring, fleet monitoring and service monitoring. The platform comes with out-of-the-box integrations to Oracle and third-party enterprise software such as enterprise resource planning, supply chain management and customer experience applications. The platform's capabilities include data management, IoT analytics, built-in integrations with maintenance management systems and other systems, and custom dashboards and application extensibility for domain-specific user interfaces. The platform can run on Oracle Cloud as well as on-premises servers.

Strength: Oracle takes an application-centric approach to IoT, enabling faster implementation, ease of management and out-of-the-box connectivity to middleware and enterprise applications.

Weakness: Oracle's application-centric approach means less flexibility.


Niche Player: QiO

The United Kingdom-based vendor's Foresight Platform is a cloud-independent platform that stands out with its analytical digital twin that models, predicts and simulates the status of industrial assets. The platform, which is made up of open-source components and OEM technology building blocks, comes with key IIoT platform functionality as well as purpose-built application templates that can accelerate IoT deployments. It can also integrate with both IT and operational technology systems. Supported use cases include asset monitoring, warranty management and predictive maintenance.

Strength: QiO earmarks 60 percent of Foresight Platform revenue for research and development.

Weakness: Not many customers use the platform's device management and data management capabilities.


Niche Player: ROOTCLOUD

The Guangzhou, China-based company was incubated by heavy machinery company Sany Heavy Industry and its platform offerings consist of ROOTCLOUD Platform and ROOTCLOUD Edge. ROOTCLOUD Platform's capabilities include real-time data collection, asset performance management, product lifecycle management, intelligence services and big data analytics while ROOTCLOUD Edge acts as the platform's on-premises counterpart. One of the platform's major differentiators is its ability to integrate disparate industrial control systems, supporting a wide range of industrial protocols for everything from programmable logic controllers to computer numerical controlled routers.

Strength: The platform has solid API and protocol data integration support for various kinds of machinery.

Weakness: There is only one third-party software development kit for gateway integration that is supported by the platform.
