Niche Player: Flutura

The Houston, Texas-based company's Cerebra platform has a strong offering around analytics, thanks to its vertical-specific nano apps that target operations within a specific asset. The platform can run analytics with interactive queries, expert knowledge rule systems, physics-based models, hypothesis testing and machine learning, with the ability to view results in an interactive chart or table. The platform also comes with real-time streaming analytics and device management capabilities. It supports protocols such as HTTPS, MQTT and UDP as well as OPC connectors and programmable logic controller drivers for IoT edge messaging and communications. The company's three main focuses are the specialty chemicals, oil and gas and industrial machinery verticals. Part of its go-to-market strategy is to complement software capabilities of technology partners like Hitachi and Microsoft.

Strength: Flutura has demonstrated with multiple customers that Cerebra can easily integrate into IT and operational technology applications.

Weakness: Flutura's device management feature set does not come with essential capabilities.


Niche Player: GE Digital 

The San Ramon, Calif.-based vendor's Predix platform comes with capabilities for connecting assets, aggregate sensor data and analyzing that data to generate business insights. The company supports cloud deployments through partnerships with companies like Microsoft Azure and on-premises deployments with Predix Private Cloud. The Predix platform is composed of components developed in-house, such as data asset models and analytic engines, and components that were acquired, such as machine learning and data visualization. In December 2018, parent company General Electric announced that it would spin out Digital as a standalone, GE-owned business, but the company's future investment of Predix remains in flux due to ongoing changes at GE.

Strength: Customers report high satisfaction for Predix and its agent release management for IoT and operational technology endpoints.

Weakness: Predix's product roadmap faces uncertainty due to ongoing changes to the company's executive management, structure and go-to-market strategy.
