Niche Player: Eurotech

The Italian vendor's IIOT offerings are focused around two off-the-shelf platform integration capabilities: Everyware Software Framework for edge computing and Everyware Cloud, which is the company's data-center-level platform for cloud and on-premises environments. The platforms are based on the open-source Eclipse Kura and Eclipse Kapua projects, respectively. The company also provides IoT gateways for machine-to-machine and IOT connectivity for connecting operational technology assets to IT. Another strength is the company's technology partnerships, which includes one with VMware to allow companies to monitor and manage their edge infrastructure using vSphere virtualization.

Strength: The platforms can easily integrate with other vendors at the edge or in the cloud thanks to their open-source Eclipse foundations.

Weakness: The company's platform lacks a broad and deep analytics capability, and the existing offering has received poor marks from customers.


Niche Player: Exosite

The Minneapolis, Minn.-based vendor's Murano platform provides a full range of IIoT capabilities, going from application enablement and integration to analytics and device management — through a combination of open-source and third-party components. The company's strength, however, is in its cloud-based analytics applications for use cases like asset maintenance and connected products. Murano is provided as a managed service on public cloud infrastructure like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, though it can support on-premises deployments via containerization and its Exosite Gateway Engine. The company largely goes to market through OEMs.

Strength: Customers have lauded Murano for its ease of use, specifically when it comes to application enablement, analytics and administration capabilities.

Weakness: The platform uses the Lua scripting language, which is not as popular as other scripting languages, creating a potential impediment for more customized use of the platform.
