EXECUTIVE SUMMARY(PDF)

Bullish forecasts for the Internet of Things (IoT) abound. Some indicate that 6.4 billion things will be connected by the end of 2016 – that's 5.5 million new things every day this year – and that the number will grow to 20.8 billion connected things by 2020. Others put the growth of the market closer to 200 billion by 2020. Still others focus on the projected value, saying that the global worth of IoT will be around $6.2 trillion by 2025.

This report, which focuses on such IoT platforms, is the first in a series of research documents based on the Future of Virtualization program, an ongoing research project that defines the scope of the business opportunity that virtualization affords communications service providers (CSPs) and provides a realistic timeline for its deployment. Virtuapedia is built upon a comprehensive taxonomy of subjects that cover virtualization technologies, services, standards, partnerships, companies and people involved.

IoT platforms perfectly illustrate the impact that virtualization has on a market. IoT platforms accelerate and simplify IoT development with solution components that can be replicated across industries and market segments by providing a secure, flexible software stack that serves as the foundational framework for data, device and application management for an IoT solution. Platform users differentiate their offerings by focusing on information gleaned from data rather than functionality. Instead of trying to distinguish offerings in terms of connectivity integration, device management or data collection, platform users gain the benefit of framework integration. Such frameworks vary between vendors, as shown in the report, but their overriding goal is to underscore the usefulness of IoT by enabling predictive analytics, security, prototyping, testing and more. Also vastly important is that AEPs integrate with third-party systems in many ways, including application programming interfaces (API), software development kits (SDKs) and gateways.

Regardless of how quickly IoT grows or how many devices ultimately are connected, application enterprise platforms will play an integral role. AEP serves as a communication hub, connecting and managing devices and processing and sharing data with relevant processes and people.

IoT platform vendors will continue to build out their offerings as IoT matures, but it's imperative for them to develop a strong network of system integrator and other technology partners.

Future of Virtualization: Focus on IoT Platforms examines application enablement platforms for the IoT, utilizing data collected from nine companies that provide such solutions. It also analyzes where the market is today, as well as investments vendors are making into the technology and trends expected over the next 18-24 months. Further, the report discusses vendor strategies and profiles. Finally, it provides a detailed comparative analysis of solutions.
 

The following excerpt is a comparative analysis of IoT platforms, showing the great diversity that is abundant in the market.

IoT's Place in the Future of Virtualization

5/13/2016

For a technology concept that's really only gained widespread interest in the past eight to ten years -- a figure depending largely upon which company, organization or individual is attempting to take credit for naming it -- the Internet of Things (IoT) is a relatively young concept. It didn't even gain a place on one research firm's hype cycle for emerging technologies until 2011; by 2014, that same company had already moved it from being a technology trigger to being at the peak of inflated expectations.

Nevertheless, communication service providers (CSPs), technology vendors and others continue to invest heavily in solutions that rely upon, support and -- in many cases -- create new innovation to IoT. From the number of IoT platforms that have been introduced into the market in the past 12 to 18 months, it's obvious that IoT is viewed as anything but an inflated expectation.

These are just some of the findings in the newest Heavy Reading report "Future of Virtualization: Focus on IoT Platforms." This report examines application enablement platforms for the IoT, utilizing data collected from nine companies that provide such solutions. It analyzes where the market is today, as well as investments vendors are making into the technology and trends expected over the next 18 to 24 months. It discusses vendor strategies and profiles. Finally, it provides a detailed comparative analysis of solutions.

We agree that IoT holds an important place in the overall picture of virtualization, which we believe is the ultimate term to encompass the impact that such technology will have on the future. It's also why we created and have been working for almost a year on the Future of Virtualization program. We specifically chose IoT platforms as the first in a series of research topics that will focus on the technologies featured in Virtuapedia.

Already, we have more than 840 companies and 1,150 products and services featured in Virtuapedia, and we're also focusing on the associations, alliances and organizations -- more than 300 of which we've discovered that likely will play a vital role as virtualization continues to develop.

And while there's no way to tell just how much impact IoT -- or IoT platforms -- will have in the future of virtualization, there is no question that the hundreds of companies and thousands of products we've featured are banking on the success of IoT and other technologies that are the backbone of virtualization.
